I have been involved in photography for the last 15 years. My interests include travel, people, nature/wildlife, and more recently, creative images made with composite components.
I am a member of the Celbridge camera club. At the moment, I am involved at a national level with the IPF being a member of the council for the last 15 years and currently manage the IPF website. In 2004, I applied for a licentiate distinction with the IPF (LIPF) and was successful, and in 2008, I followed up with an associateship panel (AIPF). In 2016 I applied for my fellowship and happily was successful in that endeavor in September 2016.
In parallel to this I have been working towards a set of FIAP distinctions ( Federation Internationale Art Photographique) and so far, have gained an EFIAP distinction and was awarded EFIAP/b in 2017 and an EFIAP/s in 2018.
My passions in photography are people in their environment and the natural world. I have travelled to many parts of the world to photograph both.
