I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing the wedding of Kelly and Brian on Saturday March 1st 2014. The wedding ceremony was at St Flannan’s Church, Lisdeen County Clare followed by reception at The Armada Hotel Spanish Point. On the way to the reception the wedding party stopped at Garrihy’s Pub in Moyasta for some refreshments. The Armada Hotel holds a special place in the couples hearts as it was here that they first met. Brian’s family made the long trek from his native Canada for the wedding and thoroughly enjoyed the landscape, the people and the celebrations.
Kelly and Brian are a wonderful couple and I wish them every health and happiness in their married lives.

Tarbert Lighthouse on the River Shannon in County Kerry
I recently purchased a Fujifilm X-E1 mirrorless camera with 18-55mm f2.8 and 14mm f2.8 lenses. This is one of the first images I took with it while crossing the Shannon on the Tarbert to Killimer car ferry on a calm summers morning.
The X-E1 is a fantastic camera with stunning image quality, low noise and superb handling. The lens are wonderfully sharp and the Optical Image Stabilisation on the XF 18-55 zoom lens works very well. I intend posting more images and information on this camera as time allows.
Attended PhotoFest 2013 yesterday at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. As usual, there were lots of nice toys to play with and the Nikkor 200 mm F2.0 AF-S VR prime lens certainly caught my eye. This is a truly amazing lens with a price tag to match. Read the full review of its stellar performance on the Photozone site.
I took this photo with the Panasonic GX-1 at 6400 ISO. Its a beautiful camera with nice handling. Wheres my wallet?
A big Thank You to Listowel Camera Club for asking me to give a talk on black and white photography on Monday night. We had a great attendance and a very lively question and answer session through the night. Special thanks to Ger Roche and Jim Doolin for the invite and for co-ordinating the event. Its always a pleasure to attend their club nights and I would encourage anyone with an interest in photography to visit them and become a member of their very active club.
