I'm a Galway based photographer who is a little obsessed with photography. That obsession didn't hit me until my early 20's but when it did, it really took over. I started my photography business with a simple goal in mind; "to provide images of the highest quality that surpass the expectations of my clients". I am a firm believer that what you get back is directly related to the effort put in. On every shoot, I try to reach that goal; I believe it's not good enough nowadays to become comfortable, because as soon as you start to become comfortable, you become irrelevant.

Behind the camera...
I'm relaxed, I don't fuss, I don't stress, thats critically important to the way I work with my clients. When shooting life events like a Wedding the ability to blend in as one of the guests in an invaluable asset as a photographer. I shoot weddings & portrait and teach beginners workshops all year round.

Away from the camera...
I have a wonderful wife and two small boys who keep me busy. I love gadgets & gear but understand that all the gear in the world does not make you a better photographer, to that end I'm constantly striving to better my photography craft. I attend international workshops yearly to learn from some of the best photographers in the industry which has helped me to build up a client base of repeat customers.

Taking a photography lesson, here is some background info...
I take a "cut to the chase" approach with my private digital photography lessons & workshop classes. These classes are about "accelerated learning" on core topics. We focus on the core topics of exposure, metering, camera modes, composition & lighting etc. We take an in-depth look at each of these & then we'll get hands on to put it all into practice. I want you to understand why you choose certain settings as opposed to telling you which settings to use. Once you understand the "why" & understand what the camera is doing behind the scenes, your photography skills will improve immensely.

Kind Words | "A true professional from the get go..."

Gerard photographed our wedding in April 2016. We initially got in touch with Gerard after a friend had recommended him and loved the style of wedding photography he showcased on his website. Gerard was a true professional from the get go, from the initial meeting right through to final image & wedding album delivery.

We were delighted with his relaxed approach to shooting on the day as well as his manner with family & friends. He listened to our requirements & he captured our day beautifully with a mixture of natural candid moments & professionally taken pictures.

The album design process was extremely simple, from choosing our favourite images (we received over 1100 images in total) to picking the colour & materials for our wedding album. We got to see 3D versions of the book & box as well as an online version of our page layouts to flick through before ordering. We would highly recommend Gerard to any couple looking for a professional wedding photographer, thank you Gerard.
