Hi,

I recently finished a portrait session with Kerry actor Kieran Roche who wanted some head-shots for his portfolio.  Kieran is a Tralee based actor who is working very hard on the theatre circuit.  He has been working with Kerry playwright Neil Flynn on such projects as The Hothouse at The Cork Arts Theatre.  He has also appeared in Sex, Relationships and Sometimes Love and All Things.  Kieran was great to work with and I really enjoyed the session.  I wish him every good luck and success in the future.

Ger And Anne Wedding

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Hi,

On Saturday January 8th 2011, I had the pleasure of photographing my friends Ger and Annes wedding.  They were married in Ballyheigue Church and the reception was held at The Ballyroe Heights Hotel in Tralee, Co. Kerry.
The church was full of family and friends of the couple and colleagues of Gers from ESB Moneypoint and Annes from Causeway Comprehensive School.
Due to the layout of the altar I was unable to see the couples faces from any location in the church and had to set up a camera on the altar facing them which I triggered with a wireless remote.  With this setup I was able to get shots of the couple with their guests in the background.
I took a series of available light shots of the couple in the church after they had finished meeting their guests.  I used the Nikon 70-200 2.8 VR lens for these shots and it produces excellent results every time.
We went to the beach in Ballyheigue on our way to the hotel to see if we could get some shots of the bridal party but it was far too windy.  I took a few shots just to say “we were there” but that was it.
We were treated to a fine meal and marvelous entertainment in the hotel afterwards and a wonderful day was had by all.  Felt a little under the weather in the morning, but it was worth it.
I wish Ger and Anne all the best for a very happy life together.

Congratulations Causeway Students

Hi,

I am amazed how quickly a year has passed and it is debs dance season again.  I recently photographed the class from Causeway Comprehensive School in Kerry who enjoyed their night at Ballyroe Heights Hotel.  The bad weather certainly didn’t dampen their spirits and a great night was had by all.  The photographs are posted on my website for the students to view and I will be busy printing for them next week.
I wish them every success in the future.

Torc to recover

Hi,
After the madness of last night, I decided to visit one of my favourite places today, Torc Waterfall in Killarney.  It was a beautiful day and the waterfall was in full flow so I had a great time trying to get some good shots of it.
Having a nice day to photograph the beautiful landscape of Kerry has been such a rarity this year that I had to jump at the chance.

What a night!

Hi,

Very busy last night photographing the debs dance for the leaving certificate pupils of Causeway Comprehensive School, County Kerry, many the happy day I had there myself.   The dance was held in Ballyroe Heights Hotel near Tralee and a great night was had by all.  I can only begin to imagine what time they finished at…….
A dazzling array of beautiful girls and well groomed young men all in high spirits and ready to begin the rest of their lives with style.
Many thanks to the pupils for selecting me and to my good friends Ann and Ger for the wonderful help they gave me on the night.  I will have the pleasure of photographing their wedding in July 2010 :-)
Busy weekend ahead to sort and edit all the photographs and get them ready for printing.
Best of luck to the pupils in their future lives.
