I have a long standing relationship with DCU as my alma mater and later involvement with the Access awards so it was an absolute pleasure to be invited to DCU campus to take photos for the new DCU Rooms website. The amazing diversity of buildings and spaces, old and new, photographed during the day and the night not only provided ample opportunity to capture some stunning images but also brought back some memories of college life! You can see a selection of them here. There are more to be seen on the new website www.dcurooms.com Thanks to Siobhan Pepper from Prem and David Doyle and all the DCU staff for making the place look so wonderful.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Arthur Little and his team @ Cask Bar in Cork. Everywhere I looked there was a fantastic image to be captured. I could've stayed all day...I almost did! Next time I'm staying the night. Arthur and I traded stories of life over a charcuterie board (blue cheese was amazing) and I felt like I was at home with a long lost friend. So will you! Check out the photos and the bathrooms are as amazing as every inch of the place. Go there now!
I copied this bit from their website:
Cask was opened in Feb 2017 in a former antique shop in Corks Victorian quarter. Huge emphasis was placed on restoring the building and it's vast stone walls, coloured tiles and court yard formed the back bone for the modern art deco design.
At the heart of Cask is our drinks programme. We run a seasonal cocktail menu which changes every 8 weeks. The concept is simple, mother nature determines which direction our drinks evolve. We forage wild ingredients and use amazing local producers to create a menu we believe is the most original and interesting in this Country. You won't find any classics on our list, each one is and always will be completely signature and we have a team of mixologists who have won numerous national competitions and worked in Michelin star establishments.
In colder months our flavours are bold and earthy. Dark fruits, nuts. Woody herbs. Warm drinks. As Spring and Summer looms our drinks become lighter, more floral, intense and vibrant. Three specialist Japanese ice machines and a general obsession with ice helps us stand out from other cocktail bars. Ice is our everything, block ice, ball ice, flavoured ice. All our drinks tell a story. Predominantly Cork stories. From the infamous Katty Barry, Corks most famous publican to Roy Keane and our Mayfield inspired "Cork first, Ireland second" to the "Tapper". A Cork legend who would dress up in three piece suits while 'tapping' his walking stick as he begged for money for pints.

Before I am booked for an event or property commission my prospective clients typically ask me the same few questions, such as …are you available? …what is the quote?
In answering I always try to dig a little deeper to see what it is they are looking for. The conversation that follows forms the basis of my event photography shoot. My interest is in understanding what they want to show? Where will the photographs be used? In a brochure, website, social media? Do they want candid documentary shots? Posed photos? What are the key events happening?
That conversation is very important as it helps me connect to my client’s needs and in so doing I can photograph their event and space in a way that connects the viewer to the experience of having been there.
My favourite shoots are interesting spaces and how the people interact with the space, such as this shoot here from Guinness Storehouse for Arthur’s Day. Looking at the photos now connects me to the wonderful sensory experience that day.
