Blurred Lines – Ravens Rock 2015

Ravens Rock Rally Photos 2015… Sometimes I feel the motion and power is missing from rally photography. They will capture a moment in time, a split second, but to me it’s all about the noise and the blur of colour that can a fraction of a second longer to record. All images are more or less straight-out-of-camera, minor processing in Adobe Lightroom CC. Shot on Nikon D750 with 24-70 2.8

Mayfield Birds of Prey

Willie Corcoran runs Mayfield Birds of Prey in Waterford.  It’s rare to meet someone who has such a passion and love in what they do. We were drawn in by the stories he had for each bird and descriptions of their personalities. Set in the old workhouse in Kilmacthomas, Willie made sure the booking was only us, he strongly believes in promoting wildlife and their welfare.

The ever-talented creative team at Emagine designed their website frontend, but we needed a series of edgy photos to match their contemporary brand. Tinderpoint didn’t want your typical ‘Failte Ireland’ portrayal of Dublin. Not that’s there’s anything wrong with that, they just wanted to put their own stamp on their view of the streets of Dublin with a somewhat ‘grittier’ look & feel.
