The main types of photographic themes I enjoy include landscapes, architecture, corporate, food, events, long exposure and blue-hour photography. I enjoy nothing more than getting out and about, amongst nature, the elements and the sky and capturing something special. After that, I get to share it with the world here on this website and on my various Social Media channels. I post regularly to Instagram and Twitter via the @shanesphoto handle and my Facebook page is available by clicking the logo (top right) on this site – I would be delighted if you chose to follow me there.

Please check out the Online Prints section where you can buy some of my best photos or browse the many photographic blog posts which I have added through the years.

I enjoy capturing the skill and talent of the chef in my food photography. I think photographing food should capture the use of fresh ingredients, the creativeness of the chef and also entice the viewer with a mouth-watering final shot.

I enjoy travel and the fantastic shots which can be captured en-route. My favourite travel photographic destinations include New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, and of course Ireland (especially the west coast and Wild Atlantic Way).

Nature in all it’s forms is a photographers dream subject. Everything from the smallest bird or colourful dragonfly to the largest deer provide a great photo shoot opportunity. Most of my nature shots are from Ireland and the UK.
