Hi, I have a Story................

Inspired by my local photographer in my school days where I’d look forward to looking in his window every Monday to see his Wedding Albums and photos. I also had a love for food and cooking. I trained as a chef and spent almost 30years in the catering trade. With a career change in 2006 I got a chance to study Photography in Bournemouth.

Your family is the most important thing in the world, and I know you want portraits you can treasure and hold close to your heart for the rest of your life. I produce a wide range of imagery from traditional, reportage and artistic styles. I have a very spontaneous kind of shooting manner and an easy-going personality.

I pride myself on the personal approach, taking the time to find out about you and your requirements to ensure that those special moments are captured in time. I have been on both sides of the camera with my daughter’s wedding this year it was a new experience.

I have another few love’s in my life….. but not sure I could be a Vet…….

I cover all types of photography from events, commercial and specialise in Wedding and Portrait photography.

Based in Co. Cork but can travel to any venue within Ireland including all the major cities such as Cork, Dublin, Limerick, Galway, Waterford, Kilkenny and surrounding counties.

“We first met David at a wedding fair in the charleville Park Hotel. We were drawn in by his warm personality and friendliness. We booked to have a meeting with him in his studio. He photography was brilliant and blew us away and booked him there and then. David, you have been a pleasure to work with. On the day of the wedding, you were so relaxed and easy going. You put us at ease and we have a great time working with you. We can't wait to see the pictures. I would highly recomm”
