I'm delighted to say that I was awarded a Fellowship in Photography from the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF) on Saturday the 23rd of September 2017 :)
My written statement:
It may seem a little odd, but I have always loved paper. As a child I would sit, scissors in hand and cut-out chains of people & free snowflakes from sheets of paper just to entertain myself.
When I started a 365 photography project back in 2011 it didn't take long to run out of things to photograph. Once again I turned to a blank sheet of white paper; this time to make something to use as a prop.
2458 days later I'm still taking a photograph everyday. Making stuff from paper has become my “thing” and with my camera I try to bring my imagination to each paper scene.
This panel of 20 images comes from my on-going photography project and represents a glimpse of how I imagine the night would look if the world was made of paper.

1,500 days in a row!!
After a little bit of discussion and a little bit of maths we just realised today was our 1,500th day in a row of our photo project!!!
My full set of 1500 images is here:
Scott's are here:
that's 4 years, 1 month and 8 days non-stop :D
he was being sweet drawing me a smiley face on the frozen window but it ended up looking plain ass creepy!
it's been snowing all day and tonight it looks like it might be starting to stick...that will make someone happy :)
I don't know what it says about me that I could put together this collection of red objects after about an hour rummaging around the house ;)
a redo of an older shot, I wanted to do a better job on the water than last time and I think I did :)
