Crosshaven

Crosshaven

Situated approximately 30/40 minutes from Cork City, is one of my favourite little getaway towns in the county. Crosshaven lies right at the mouth of Cork harbour and views of Rochespoint Lighthouse can be seen nearby with the history filled complex of Camden Fort Meagher a shot walk from the village centre.

The village faces Currabinny woods and looks out on numerous small water craft dotted across the bay and marinas.

Between Carrigaline and Crosshaven lies a beautiful scenic walk. Having taken wedding photographs along this route, the atmosphere is very relaxing for anyone interested in portrait, engagement or wedding imagery.

Coming from an island off the west coast of Mayo, it's always fun to check out the various yachts and boats throughout the harbour.

A beautiful winter glow casts its warm light across the landscape as the sun sets at the end of a cold day.

In 2014 I shot Sadya & Zuban's wedding event in the neighbouring Carrigaline. When looking for somewhere scenic to get the couples portraits we knew we had to head straight towards the shoreline by the Carrigaline to Crosshaven walk.

Getting to enjoy the slower pace of life down here is an enjoyable departure from the hustle and bustle of the city. If you would like to have your photographs taken here through either portrait or engagement sessions, you can get in touch with me here.

Drone Photography

Over the past few months I have been trying a new perspective within my landscapes by using a drone and have been rewarded with some stunning views.

Circling around the cliffs at the lighthouse on Clare Island and flying over the quay gave an amazing new perspective to something I have always enjoyed from ground level since childhood.

I brought it with me on my most recent trip to California and travelling with the drone was pretty easy as it fits easily inside my ThinkTank HeliPack and is perfect size for overhead cabin baggage. As it is backpack style I've found it easy to carry the vast majority of my camera equipment including all the additional batteries etc

What I love most is the fact that you can capture stunning landscape vistas to very minimalist style images such as the arc of this beach below on Clare Island.

This final shot was a composite panoramic image over the surrounding mountains of Lake Tahoe, offering breathtaking views.

If you'd love to introduce this new perspective to your wedding or portrait session, contact me here. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

California

During February and early March I took a trip to the west coast of California for two weeks visiting the beautiful San Diego and Lake Tahoe. Both areas offer a varied beauty in their ideal conditions, long soft sunsets of the coastline and crisp blues and whites of the snowy mountains. 

The California coastline offers stunning slow sunsets that offer a beautiful kind of light, no wonder why it's a haven for the epitome of summer imagery.

My trip took me from the beautiful Sunset Cliffs up to the gorgeous La Jolla and Torrey Pines National Park.

I followed up the coastline by snowboarding out in Lake Tahoe, an absolutely stunning location even if you were to just take in the breath-taking views.

One of my new favourite landscape images, below, this panorama of the mountainous landscape north of Lake Tahoe itself captured during the crisp sunset via drone looks absolutely stunning on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag Pearl.

Getting to catch up with friends and family after so many years on this trip, California was more than just an opportunity to photograph some of the states beauty and I hope to return here for more portrait and landscape work.
