I was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1978 and have had a passion for photography since I received my first camera as a gift from my father at the age of ten. It was to remain just a hobby for some time though, while I studied for a degree in philosophy and classical civilization from University College Dublin, before traveling and working around the world. I then returned to college in Dublin to study for a diploma in photography and moved to Canada in 2005 to be with my wife Kerri.
Originally based in Calgary, Alberta, I began my photographic career creating fine art images of the Rocky Mountains and the prairies. Following a coast-to-coast trip across Canada in the summer of 2009 my wife and I moved to Niagara Falls, Ontario, where we were based for a few years. However we realized that we missed the prairies and the mountains a bit more than expected so we moved back to Alberta in 2013. We now live with our two children near the Rocky Mountains, in the town of Cochrane.
I exhibit my work at some of the biggest art shows in Canada in cities such as Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, Ottawa and Toronto. Click the Art Shows tab to see what shows are upcoming and don't forget to check out my social media sites by clicking the links at the bottom of the page.
I am an active member of the Master Photographers of Canada and the Professional Photographers of America. I have been lucky enough to receive several awards in my career to date including a National Accreditation in Fine Art from the Professional Photographers of Canada in 2009, a Kodak Gallery Award for Photographic Excellence in 2010, the Tibor Horvath Award of Excellence in 2011 and a Silver Medal from the Professional Photographers of America in 2012. In early 2014 I was honoured to receive the title of Master Photographer in Fine Art from the Master Photographers of Canada.
