Cara Magazine Cookery School series

Commissioned by Fran Power at Cara this is our third portfolio featuring some of the best cookery schools and their teachers in Ireland. It was great to meet these great chefs and I was particularly happy to photograph Darina and Rachel together in Darina's own kitchen. During the shoot we were also treated to some delicious food, most notably lunch at Ballymaloe and at Lyons with Clodagh and tea with Eimer Rainsford and Catherine Fulvio !

Irish Magazine Awards

Last week I was thrilled to find out that I had been nominated for The Irish Magazine Awards, Photographer of the year prize. The awards ceremony was held at The Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin and I was delighted to be invited along by Richard Power, MD of Image publications. The award was presented by Grace Aungier and was for the feature we did for CARA on the racing industry in Ireland.

Here's my original post on this shoot.

Tullamore Dew

These ads were created by McCann in Paris and art directed here in Dublin by Shay Madden, Creative Director at McCann Erickson in Dublin, to be run in France as part of a global campaign. We shot the background images at the Tullamore Dew visitor centre and the portraits in my studio in Dublin. The retouching was done by Stefano Cherubini at Happyfinish in London. Paddy Daly at Yoke Productions produced the casting and Suzie Coen was the stylist.
