Mweerae, Connemara West Of Ireland.

First off I would like to say a great big thank you to everybody who has sent me your very kind and encouraging comments recently and also to welcome all of my new followers here, it is amazing to see the numbers steadily rise so I suppose I must be doing something right!  My Newsletter for the Month of May went out a few days ago and for those of you who haven’t signed up yet, read it here.  I hope you like what you read and find the content useful and please sign up here if you haven’t already.

Last week I was away running a workshop on the Giant’s Causeway and I am just editing my images now so you can look forward to some of them this week too.  We were really fortunate with the weather last week.  We had one day with strong winds but other than that we had beautiful light and stunning scenery.  This week I plan to spend a day back down in Connemara and at the weekend I am planning a shoot at Irelands highest waterfall if the weather holds, right now its beautiful and is forecast to last for at least a week.  For more information on workshop dates and details  please  see here.

Thanks again for all your kind words, I am doing my best to respond to all your comments, I like to respond to each and every one with at least a thank you so if I havent got to you yet I will!  I hope you get out to shoot with your camera this weekend and even if you don’t have a great weekend!

HOW I GOT HERE Of course, I wasn’t always a full time photographer. I spent a lot of time in the corporate world. I had a job which paid well, but just didn’t excite me. I remember the day when I had had enough. Enough of selling myself short, enough of dreaming too small, enough of doing what others expected of me. I had put away my dreams and told myself I would get back to them later, but somehow there always seemed to be something else that had to get done first. A friend of mine had recommended I take the NLP Business Practitioners course, and although I was really busy, I decided to do it. During that time, I began to imagine the different paths my life could take from here. While I had a hazy picture of what this other life might look like, I had a clear picture of where my current life was going if I didn’t change. It was a scary moment, a bit like standing on the edge of a cliff deciding whether to jump into the great unknown or stay on the cliff, safe but trapped. I jumped. The transition to the life I wanted was challenging The transition to the life I wanted was challenging but I would never go back. After that day I resolved to do what I love, to follow my bliss.  Picking up a camera after several years away, I found that many things had changed, the digital age had arrived. In the intervening years, I was too busy to pay any attention to my photography, and occasionally when I took something I really liked, I would think “how do some photographs seem so captivating and others leave me completely cold?” I knew this is what I was meant to do Somehow though, I knew this is what I was meant to do. I dedicated myself to learning everything I could about being a photographer. I took many, many courses and I read every book I could get my hands on, I still do. Since then, I have dedicated myself to helping other creative photographers achieve the results they want. And what a journey it has been. Last year I qualified as a coach. My main area of interest is creativity and helping others to express their vision. WHAT I BELIEVE Along the way, I’ve learnt that there are no rules. Experiment, explore, play. My advice is to make your art from your heart, not for the praise or the money.  Lighten up. It’s important to take your photography seriously, but it's a mistake to take yourself too seriously. Finally, you get what you want when you never, ever give up so enjoy every minute of it and just do it!
