Meet Your Guide: I was born in the City of Derry but I have lived most of my life outside the bounds of Ireland in England, Singapore, Togo, Italy, Ethiopia, and Brazil. Recently I returned to Donegal, Ireland. Photography and travel are two of my life’s passions. My photography focuses on culture, landscapes, and wildlife; images that reflect a spatial and temporal journey through life and try to convey a need to live in a more sustainable world. I seek the moment and the light in whatever context I find myself and endeavor to use my photographic acumen to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. 

Lough Dunlewy and the iconic mountain of Errigal are seen here in winter, but the landscape provides a spectacle in any season.
