timothy-sheard-the-book-nest-sligo I met this fella while wandering with camera outside the booknest on saturday afternoon, Timothy’s an author from Brooklyn over for a wedding in Ireland (I was told the location but with my memory…information lost).

Fair play to him he accosted me with the line “is their anyone in your family who might enjoy a suspense novel”, I could not give an outright denial that this could indeed be the the case so he had me hooked.

Another archery slideshow for the dedicated few.

Great to meet you all on the day. Pity I shattered an arrow but my lost one returned so not so bad after all!

School Photos delivered to St.Patricks NS, Ballywheelin, Sligo

Just delivered about 70 packs of photos to my local national (primary) school, Individual, family and class portraits. Unfortunately some absentees on the day made a whole school picture impossible.  I will be back to take that next week and put it straight on the website with a text notification to parents.
Are you a principal or creche owner in the Sligo area?  have a chat with me regarding the advantages of using a local photographer for your class photos.

Here is Matthew my son and member of the school, helping test my lighting settings :-)icon_smile

Things of a floral nature.

March 27, 2010  •  Leave a Comment

I spent a night with the good ladies (well mainly) of the County Sligo Flower Club. I was commissioned to photograph the wonderful arrangements created by Reverend William McMillan. Having done a few minutes research internet research on the gentleman in question it appears to have been quite a coup for the club to get him, well done ladies. Not expecting to be entertained while waiting to take the photos I must say I was pleasantly surprised and regretted not having seen more of the show.

As it turned out all the arrangements I had been commissioned to photograph had been designated as raffle prizes. This provided considerable time pressure on the photo creation exercise as the winners rushed the stage to collect their winnings! it was quickly explained that I would take a few minutes to photograph the creations before they good be taken by their new owners.

Luckily I had arrived armed in typical strobist style with a good ole Metz CT45 wirelessly triggered into a large white brolly on a tall lighting stand with another loose flash optically slaved of that for a bit of extra rim or fill as required. This allowed for fairly fast operation so saving me from the wrath of the Killybegs brigade! (who in fairness had a long drive home).

Here’s a link to Williams website http://www.reverendmac.com/ in case I have piqued your curiosity.
