This series of images were captured at one of my favourite locations. This is a secluded beach in West Cork where 9 out of 10 times I have the beach to myself.

Photography is my escape and my passion. I use long exposures & minimalism to capture not what is there but what I see. Photography lets me experience nature at its most beautiful and living in Clonakilty, West Cork, Ireland, I am surrounded by endless beauty and inspiration. I love seeing my images come full circle from conception, to capture, to editing and finally to print.
