The Gallery

Undoubtedly, the best place to experience my work is at our gallery in the beautiful market town of Kenmare in Co. Kerry.

Open all year round, the gallery is a busy spot, but we will always welcome you and discuss the work, your visit to Kenmare, and how best to enjoy our incredible landscape.

I currently split my time between working in the gallery myself and working in the field, but it is a part of the business I enjoy. Since we opened the doors in 2015, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people from all over the world who have honoured me by choosing an image for their homes.

My wife Lorraine and I are always happy to discuss the images, sizes, framing options, placement ideas, and shipping options. All the prints on display are beautifully framed and printed and can be viewed in various sizes. Smaller open editions and signed copies of my books are also available to buy.

If you’re a photographer and just like browsing, don’t be shy… say hello and let us know what inspires you… we’ll also do our best to answer any questions you might have about the work.

the Artist

I am a professional photographer based in Kenmare, Co. Kerry which is a very beautiful part of Ireland. My passion for photographing the landscape here began in 1992 and I have been endlessly inspired by my surroundings ever since.
