Ireland is magical. It is a land of history, of an amazing landscape, of stone fences, of lush fertile farmland, and amazing people. Depending on the time of year, Ireland can be a photographic challenge and opportunity due to the very unpredictable weather. Much of my first visit was punctuated by constant drizzle or downpour and wind. The scenery changes quickly because of the ever-changing weather.
The ubiquitous stone structures have stood the test of time, although ancient ruins can be seen throughout the country. The deforestation of the land by the early settlers helped foster farming that sustained the population during good times. There were also very tough times. The removal of millions of trees also contributed to the bogs that are seen throughout the country.
Ireland is a landscape photographers dream. One trip is definitely not enough.
My photographs are available as individually signed, fine art prints in various sizes. Each photograph is personally printed by me using archival, pigmented inks, on paper chosen for its archival properties as well as its ability to enhance the aesthetic quality of the photograph. A Certificate of Authenticity, providing all relevant information about the photograph, the materials used and the artist accompanies each print.
I am able to meet the needs of the photography collector as well as art consultants, who might be seeking very large prints for a corporate boardroom, a non-profit organization or the health care industry.
