Click for website. Studio and location photography, WordPress website, SEO, Online Shop, social media campaign to get this well-known business online.


I can work with your supplier’s photographs or can take new images of your work to order. I also process photos specifically for social media marketing. All photographs I use on websites are optimised for search results on Google and handed over.


Portable Studio photography

For smaller products, I can photograph in situ – without the need to take products away. You can supervise the shoot and decide then and there your final image selection. A simple ‘light tent’ can help produce amazing images, quickly and easily, such as those above.

Instagram for your business

Did you know? – Instagram reaches a vastly different audience than Facebook or Twitter. It’s more about visuals and it’s well worth using Instagram to promote your business. The secret is in the hashtags. Contact us for our new Instagram service.

carlow garden festival 2017, altamont gardens, Ireland,

Photographs with a purpose: The renowned Carlow Garden Festival is an annual event, largely based around the County’s ‘Big Houses’ & gardens. I used their display board to take a photo that encapsulated the Festival’s theme in an image that could be shared on social media or sent with press releases. A higher res version was used for print.


Small object product photography: Matte finish and brushed aluminium laser-engraved hospitality badges. These badges are an add-on product for a Kilkenny-based hotel uniform supplier. The photographs have space for text to be overlaid.
