WHY I DO WHAT I DO......

I am an Irish, travel and street photographer, mainly based in China but always on the move, with a love for the beauty of everyday life. My passion is to document and connect with the people I meet, through images that can share a small piece of their story to the world. From a young age, I had been fascinated with other street photographers' images of strangers but at the same time, felt so connected with them. It was these split second glimpses in time, that left me mesmerized by the wonder of the life that is happening all around us. A beauty often missed when we are not looking but soul awakening when we see it.

I left Ireland at the beginning of 2010 and have continued to wander the cultures of the world. During this time, my photographs have been shown in ESC Photography Ireland's 'Abroad' exhibition in Dublin, CTV Broadcasting Network China and published in many newspapers and magazines in the city of Changchun. I continue to run photowalks and trips, for other photographers and beginners to join and take part in the adventure.
