I was born in Dublin Ireland and stole my Grandmother's camera when I was six, all summer I would take photos with no film in the camera, I used to lie on the grass under the apple trees and frame the boughs until I had them just right, then click and I had a picture in my mind. I think this helped train my eye and fuel my imagination for the future.
I spent my summers in Kilkee County Clare on the west coast of Ireland where I got my love of the sea and coastal life, from the wild Atlantic to the Gulf of Mexico. I came to Key West in 1996 and still use water and island life as a big part of my photography. I like to invite the viewer into the image with the use of line and composition also simplicity works well for me as it helps convey the emotion I felt while taking the photograph.
