2012 – You’ve been great.


This year really has been incredible. I got to shoot some utterly superb weddings in places I never thought I’d get a chance to shoot. I started experimenting with video and the bug has truly bitten. I’ve photographed some really wonderful folks who I hope I can keep in contact with as the years go by. As well as having the best mates in the world I’ve gained some lovely new ones (darn talented too) who have been so helpful and supportive of my work as well as being out and out some of the funniest people I’ve met.

Best of all though, Dee started working with me this year and I honestly do not know how I managed without her. We’ve yet to get close to strangling each other and in fact it’s been quite the opposite. I asked if I could put a ring on her finger when we went to Bath in early December. After she cried for a bit (just to scare me I think – she has a wicked sense of humour) she gave me a big yes and kiss. It was the happiest moment of my life. Roll on 2013, it’s gonna be good.

Thank you all. You’ve been great.

What a video! How did you get that incredibly filmic look at 03:27? Digital Grading? Also What's that song? And where do babies c... nevermind

09:45 January 10, 2013

    Dave

    hey John. Yeah I put it through some colour grading in Lightroom. It's great that that can be done now - a longer process but worth it. Pretty much all video there has been been graded in some way or another (except for a few shots here and there). I'd go back and redo my entire video catalogue if I had the time. The song is Videogame by Eugene McGuinness - Isn't it awesome! The whole album's on spotify and it rocks!

11:22 January 10, 2013

    Dave

    Aww thanks Michelle! I know, little did we know way back then during our skiving things would turn out as they have. Lets do minstrels and hunky doreys sometime soon!

Every best wish to you both on your engagement. Video not bad either. Glad to have been on board for some of it. I see the Sunday Indo mag has returned to Castletown Geogehan for photo location for today's magazine. Must have seen your moose head shots from Eilís and Mark gig.
