Ireland Inspires

If you saw my blog post yesterday you will know from my new welcome video on my new website that I am a fine art photographer and that as well as creating my own work, which is available through my site but that also I help other photographers who share my passion for photography.  I help my clients to overcome the obstacles that prevent them from making the kind of work deep down they want to make and are capable of, I help them to feel inspired, I help them to be more creative but most of all I help them to discover the unique landscape of Ireland.

I would like to offer you a chance to experience all of these for yourself next month in County Antrim with an extended weekend photo tour of the Giants Causeway.  To see the details of the trip follow this link here to where you will find all the details of the trip from an easy PayPal link to reserve your place now (there are only 3 remaining!), an itinerary of the weekend, a PDF available for you to download, a list of FAQ’s and even a recommended list of equipment to bring for your weekend!  In addition at the moment I have a special free gift for workshop participants of a free portfolio of your favourite prints from the weekend – imaging taking your work home ready to frame and mount and show your friends and family!

So if you’re a photographer who is looking for inspiring Ireland or you’re  looking for a special gift for someone very special this Mothers day then grab those final places now!

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!
