Book Cover

I really happy with this one.

It’s only fitting that an Irishman should shoot the cover image.

For those of you who don’t know the history of Childers

The book enjoyed immense popularity in the years before World War I and was extremely influential. As Childers's biographer Andrew Boyle noted: "For the next ten years Childers's book remained the most powerful contribution of any English writer to the debate on Britain's alleged military unpreparedness". It was a notable influence on John Buchan and Ken Follett, who described it as "an open-air adventure thriller about two young men who stumble upon a German armada preparing to invade England.

In the Press

It’s been a good week this week..

Having just got back from London and the Pink Lady awards I had an article in the local paper for my images that will be at Festiv’art our local exhibitions which happens in the next village
(Arros -Nay) on the weekend 19-20 May..


and the winner is...

On Tuesday evening we were at the Mall Galleries in London for the awards of the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year 2013

I had been shortlisted and it was all terribly exciting..

I didn’t win BUT!!

I did get 3rd place in the Food for Celebration category

I am really thrilled by this result and will definitely be back next year..

and the imageI entered.. was one I took at a wedding organised by the wonderful girls at Marry me in France

The food of course which is the main event in this picture was created by the wonderful Chez Amis


It’s a great image (even if I do say so myself) It conjures up lovely warm evenings in the Dordogne and of course good food.. Everything in fact for a perfect wedding.

With so many set-up shots these days it was very gratifying that the judges chose this as a “real slice of life” or should that be cake?

The wedding season (for me at any rate ) starts next week and I will be in Châteaux in the Dordogne most weekends throughout the summer recording these wonderful events

and of course keeping my eye open for a super food shots like this one..

Pope Benedict XVI

Pope Benedict resigns.. The First Pope to do so in nearly 600 years…

This is a shot I took of him on an assignment in Rome a few years ago.

I wonder what he is thinking?
