After graduating with a Honours degree in Communications, Art and Design, photography option, from Manchester Polytechnic (now Manchester Metropolitan University), I was offered a position, which I excepted, as photographer for catalogue photography group "Woburn Studios", Manchester. Although enjoying the job I missed Northern Ireland & decided to return home to take up a photographer post in the photographic department of the Ulster Museum, where I worked for 27 years
I have over 30 years experience as a photographer, specialising in photographing paintings, sculpture, fine art and heritage-related objects.
In my time at the Ulster Museum and through my free-lance work, I have photographed an immense range of objects in a diversity of situations and environments.
After taking ‘Voluntary Early Severance’ from The Ulster Museum in 2006, I have undertaken work for a variety of clients, including
• The National Museum of Ireland
• The National Trust
• The de Laszlo Archive
• William Scott Archive
• Naughton Gallery
• Fendersky Gallery
• The Arts Council (N.I.)
• The Royal Ulster Academy
• NI Museum Council
• Downpatrick County Museum
• The Hunt Museum, Limerick
• Ballymoney Museum.
Artists are also an intrinsic part of my clientele.
