I have been working in the field of photography and graphic design for over 25 years.  I started out as a desktop publisher for Graphic Reproductions in Dublin for 3 years before becoming the picture desk manager at Inpho Photography for a further 6 years.  I left Dublin for Barcelona in 2003 and have worked as a freelance photo editor, location manager and photo retoucher for various photographers over the years. Throughout my time in Barcelona I have fluctuated between graphic design and photography. I have designed various websites. I love working with photography and text, flyers and posters being my passion. My most recent project was as the graphic designer for the current exhibition Liberxina in MNAC (Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya). I am a visualist, I love creating images, whether it be through the medium of photography or design.

SKILLS

PHOTO EDITOR
I started working as a photo editor for Inpho Sports Photography in Dublin, where I managed the picture desk for 6 years. This was an incredibly rewarding time for me as I got to work with some of the most important photographers in Dublin. I have had the pleasure of working and collaborating with Billy Stickland, Cathy Loughran, Derek Speirs, Patrick Bolger, Declan Shanahan, Norman McCloskey and Veronica Hansen amongst others. I have assisted, edited and/or retouched for all of these photographers over the years. Currently I am editor for the amazing photographer Cathy Loughran and I also guest edit on the wonderful online Sparky Magazine.

PHOTO RETOUCHING
At Inpho Photography I began my education in photo retouching thanks to Billy Stickland and Norman McCloskey.  Since then I have retouched for various photographers including Cathy Loughran, Derek Speirs and Patrick Bolger.  I have worked with the Adobe suite for 20 years and am proficient in Lightroom and Photoshop.

GRAPHIC DESIGN:
I started my career working as a desktop publisher for Graphic Reproductions. Here I learn how to design and print.  Since then I have specialised in logo, poster and brochure design.  I have designed several photobooks for the photographer Cathy Loughran and am in the process of publishing my own book ‘Time To Fly’.  I have created several websites including ones for the set designer Xavier Erra and journalist Teresa Bau. You can view some examples of my work here.

ADOBE CREATIVE SUITE:
I have been working with the Adobe family of software for almost 3 decades and am very comfortable with most of the suite especially Lightroom, Illustrator and Photoshop.

LOCATION MANAGER:
With photographer Patrick Bolger and videographer Matt Boyd I worked as the location manager for the client Gocycle over a 5 day shoot in Barcelona. The client was Dialogue Marketing.  I also work on a regular basis with the photographer Cathy Loughran on various shoots and locations in Barcelona.
