The Artist

Shot this portrait today of local painter Michael McGuinness, and enjoyed an all too brief but  interesting conversation about portraits and the people in them.  Always a treat to work with artists and other creative people.  Thanks Michael.

Shooting a lot of video at the minute, and really enjoying the process, 24 photographs per second, and especially the collaborations with talented people. Here’s a video frame grab of the lovely Bronagh Waugh, from a scene yesterday with the Bensons at Flowerfield Arts Centre in Portstewart..

Forgot about today

Didnt venture anywhere with a camera today. Shoulder is banjaxed, taking it easy. Had a trawl through my hard drives, and found this snap of the late Seamus Loughrey at work on the beach.  Everyone still misses him, hardly a day goes by someone doesn’t mention him to me. Hope you’re happy up there mate.
