About


Michael is an Irish photographer who lives on the South West Cork coast with his wife and children.

An adventurer at heart, Michael can be found scaling mountains and cliffs, wading through rivers and marshes, and sailing the high seas in pursuit of the ultimate photograph.

His portfolio although wide and varied, carries his own distinctive style of image making. He is unafraid of colour. He is acutely technical. His skills are thoughtfully and precisely applied to the acquisition of each photograph. These are captured using an array of Nikon and Canon cameras and lenses, a sailor’s navigational skills, a dash of nerve and boldness, a whole (practised) camera manual, and over fifteen years of photography experience.

Originally a darkroom technical assistant he quickly learned how to apply his picture making skills to his own artwork. Constantly developing and learning, trying new ideas, and innovatively combining his equipment has resulted in Michaels distinctive style of photography.

Previously selling via Etsy and a select number of Irish retailers, we hope this new web shop will broaden the reach and audience of Michael photographs.

Each image sold on this site is custom printed by Michael on a satin, artist's quality paper as standard, using archival inks. This gives a warm, rich, quality product which when properly cared for should last for over 100 years. The watermark/logo is never included on your purchased print.


All prints are sold unframed and unmounted. Prints are cut to include a white border which allows them to be inserted into a wide variety of mounts and frames. The exception to this is the mounted canvas option which is available on a number of print products for sale on the site.


Each purchase is carefully packaged and sent via An Post registered post.


Contact Michael directly to request a custom size of this image, a mounted option or even to commission your own bespoke photograph of this or a similar location.
