A little about me
Hi! I’m Paul and I’m lucky enough to be a visual artist who, for a living, tells stories and weaves narratives through the media of photography and video.
To start with, here’s my own story. Born and raised in Ennis, I developed an interest in photography at a young age but took a rather circuitous route to find myself where I am now (the tale involves lots of travelling, a grocery store and pianos). But fate – and sheer determination – led me back to my first love, and now I work out of a state-of-the-art photographic studio just doors away from my childhood home.
Storytelling is more than an interest for me; it’s a passion. In my free time, I enjoy screenwriting and theatre direction, both of which feed into the same idea as my photography – telling a tale in the best light, in the most effective way, to truly showcase the characters at the heart of the story.
And because I believe in telling the whole story, I like to work closely with my clients, from start to finish, so that I can guide them, every step of the way, towards the finished product. I can also frame or mount your chosen images in my studio (I find this much more rewarding than emailing on a link to an online gallery).
As an acclaimed wedding photographer, I utilise my entire skills base to relax the happy couple, draw from them their hopes and aspirations for the big day and then add some dramatic flair to create unforgettable images of the occasion.
So whether you wish to capture a special family moment, a corporate event or a landscape that has stolen your heart, my expertise, knowledge and unmitigated passion will ensure that you get not only the image you want, but the story that goes along with it.
And isn’t that what life is all about?
