ABOUT SHANE MCDONALD PHOTOGRAPHY
I am Shane McDonald, an Amateur Photographer from Waterford, Ireland. I started taking photos around 1999 with a 1.3 mega-pixel Olympus digital camera. After winning a Waterford photography contest in 2007 I started taking my photography a bit more serious. This site, Shane McDonald Photography blog, was setup in 2010 and has extended since then
The main types of photography I enjoy include landscapes, architecture, food photography, long exposure and blue-hour photography. I post regularly to Instagram and Twitter via the @shanesphoto handle and my Facebook page is available by clicking the logo on this site.
In the next few weeks this site will extend as I add new features and more blog entries to it.
I enjoy travel and the fantastic shots which can be captured en-route. My favourite travel photography destinations include New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and of course Ireland (especially the west coast and Wild Atlantic Way).Travel Photography
