In 2008 I won the prestigious title of ‘Practical Photography Photographer Of The Year’. The judges described my winning image as ‘the best winning entry in the 50-year history of the magazine’. Unsurprisingly, this helped persuade me to start working professionally full time.
In 2010 I launched my first solo exhibition in The Waterfront Hall, producing a series of black and white images of Belfast’s homeless community and, in 2012, reached a personal milestone by gaining a Fellowship with the Royal Photographic Society.
In October 2014, with the help of the Golden Thread Gallery in Belfast, I launched my second photographic exhibition, a collection of images based on the year in office of Belfast’s then Lord Mayor, Máirtín Ó Muilleoir. Over 15,000 images were taken over an period of 11 months, culminating in my first book, We, Too, Sing Belfast, being published later that year.
Since then, I’ve continued to grow my commercial and architectural photography portfolio with both UK and international clients. I’m based in Belfast in Northern Ireland, but I’m happy to travel anywhere.
