A selection from Áine & David's recent wedding, this was my first wedding in quite a while. Time to shake off the travel cobwebs and focus on doing a good job on the day. The weather had been amazing the few days before the wedding, just turned a little grey and what I call "top heavy" on the day, but hey, its Ireland, I take anything thats not wind and rain with both hands. My first wedding with my newly aquired Lens Changer bag from ThinkTank, the freedom it gives is amazing...no more clumsy rucksacks as I can fit exactly... Continue reading

A hill overlooking Carlos Paz was the reception location of my last wedding, its about 40 minutes outside Cordoba in north western Argentina. It was a slightly overcast day which is the best weather for portrait photography. The church was beautiful, the reception had stunning views on the surrounds and everyone was out to have a good time. Assistance on the day was from the fantastic Alma shooting with her Canon 550D and a 24-70 F2.8 Here are a few of my favourites and a slideshow link Continue reading

Off on a fantastic honeymoon to south east asia! The weather was fantastic, great athmosphere at the wedding, I just had to be there. Mostly natural light except for some of the formals. The day flew past and thats always a good sign. Here are some of my favourites Continue reading

One of my favourite weddings from this summer, day went so smooth and I really could not have asked for a nicer couple. Day started fabulous, cup a tea with the brides father, turn out he went to school with my own father and uncle. The lighting at the brides house was a challenge, mix of tunsten and natural window light...but I have always felt a challenge makes you think. Nice size church with plenty of room to move around in, I hate to be confined to certain spots, more I can move the more options. The reception was in... Continue reading

Some pictures from last year, combined project with Katie Crowley, who styled the photos. Various locations around Waterford, Bunmahon, Ballinacourty, Millstreet. All the shots are with Elinchrom lighting, Ranger battery pack and 80cm Softbox, except the shot by the fireplace and that is just natural light from the fire (pub lights were turned off) Continue reading
Thanks Mark, I looked at your blog, excellent work, Deb and Dan wedding looks like so much fun. Good black and whites are not easy...well most of the time they are not, everyone's tastes in black white conversions is different too. The people at work series your doing is interesting, keep up the great work
Thanks Eric :)

Selection of pictures from a recent wedding in Horetown House, County Wexford Absolutely fabulous bride and groom, pleasure to work with, everything relaxed and simple. All the photos are natural light except the posed picture of the bride and groom where I used an Elinchrom Ranger with an Octa softbox, I've raved about this gear in previous posts. The natural light was fabulous on the day, great rooms in Horetown House, large windows into large rooms. Varied selection of lenses, I think the most used were the 16-35 F2.8 and the 85mm F1.2, my 50mm was in for repair (actually... Continue reading

I'm a huge fan of Elinchrom lighting gear, I purchased my sets from Barker Photographic in Cork, Paddy Barker is fabulous to deal with. The Elinchrom Ranger battery pack system is incredible, great quality of light output, goes up to 1100 watts so it can over power the sun even on a bright day. Studio lighting anywhere! OK the box weighs 8kg and after a while 8kg gets heavy, but look at the results. This shot here is from a wedding last Saturday, in a meadow beside the Hotel, Athenaeum house, Ferrybank, Waterford. Shooting directly into the sun, low ISO,... Continue reading

A beautiful day in Faithlegg, County Waterford. Started in Faithlegg Hotel which is probably the best wedding location in the South East, cross the road for the church part in local church then back to Faithlegg Hotel for the reception. 2 camera's used, Canon 1ds mkiii and Canon 5d mkii, I carried less lenses then usual, just 16-35, 24mm, 85mm and 70-200. All natural light except for Elinchrom Ranger studio lights for the formal shots back at the hotel and little Canon flash guns for the first dance triggered my Pocket Wizard radios. The lucky couple are now on a... Continue reading

The Canon EF 85mm F1.2 is one amazing piece of glass, it is the perfect length for portraits and with its wide F1.2 aperture the background blur is incredible. The place of focus is beautifully sharp, well when you spend nearly €2000 on a lens you expect that. Along side my 24mm and 50mm this is one lens that never gets left behind when I go on a portrait shoot or wedding. Canon 5D MKII ISO 800 Lens Canon 85mm at F1.6, Shutter speed 1/80 second Canon 1DS MKIII, ISO 800, 85mm at F1.8, shutter speed 1/125 Canon 1DS MKIII,... Continue reading
