Professional photographer, inveterate traveller, available for commissions, editorials, photoessays and documentaries. Published, practised and amenable. I use only natural light and no after-effects.
Aran Islands
40 minutes by ferry out from the west coast of Ireland and Galway Bay lie three slabs of limestone, known as the Aran Islands.  Worlds of stone, these islands illustrate the desolate, stark beauty of windswept shores.  We spent the night on Inishmor, the largest of the islands, and after dinner went for a walk to enjoy a truly spectacular sunset.  Small cemeteries dotted fields limned by limestone walls, and at one, the combination of a songbird, a Celtic cross headstone, and the end of the day offered a fitting benediction to the day.
