I am writing this quickly as I have just checked in online and am almost ready for my flight home.  This trip has been fabulous and at the last count have visited 6 different states covering nearly 2000 miles. The locations have included 3 police stations, 3 courts, 1 palace , 2 hair salons and numerous farms. All the images were taken for DFID UK funded programmes and they'll be used for communication, internal reporting as well as project monitoring. 

I am currently organising my work schedule for 2016 and would certainly like to hear from you if you think your own programme might benefit from stronger images. I am more than happy to discuss your photography options with absolutely no obligation.

If you'd like to arrange a phone conversation you can drop me a line via this contact form and I'll get back to you immediately

I finished with a wedding party at 11.20pm last night and I’m travelling to Nigeria for a 2 week commission tomorrow. It’s certainly a varied way to make a living  but i’m grateful for every job that comes my way.  
Got home and was too way too alive to go straight to bed and so I decided to check the day’s email.  I was genuinely thrilled to find out I’d received multiple awards for some recent portraiture.  The images are all from my Global Development work and you can view them below.
The awards were from the Irish Professional Photographers Association so they are all something of value to me as I strive to improve. 

In total I was awarded 4 Merit’s and two Highly Commended, (which I guess is 4 silver and 2 bronze in old money). 

Not a bad haul , and I’m really pleased.
