I was born in Ireland where my interest in photography started. My main influence was my father, he took the pictures of all the family gatherings (group and portraits) and pasted them into an album. During the dark winter months we used to take out the album and go through it looking at the relatives and so forth, but one thing always fascinated me was the transition of the images within the album from B&W to colour. As I matured I too became very interested in both art and photography. At first it was the old disposable cameras and then the progress to 35mm film. I was only taking „holiday snaps“ , I loved going to the countryside and that's when I started to become interested in landscape photography but I had one problem, I could not afford the camera to photograph the lovely scenes that I was looking at. Many years later, I got married and we went to live in Australia in 1989, (fast-forward to 2005) I bought my first digital camera, Konica Minolta DimageZ10 . I now had the camera and I started to photograph sunsets and seascapes. I pushed the limits with the camera and started to experiment more deeply with my photography and the camera. I had thousands of images and I put them on DVD's as back-up. It was only later I discovered that the discs failed and I lost 99% of all my Australian photographs. In 2008 I separated from my ex-wife and I went on holiday to Stockholm Sweden, where I met my current wife. I have been living in Stockholm for 3 years but due to the lack of employment opportunities I have a lot of „free time“ so I go out every day with camera in hand and photograph the wonderful sights of this amazing city and these works are displayed in my albums. I'm still progressing in the art and have started to introduce HDR and B&W into my photography. I believe that after 3 years of continuous photography on a daily basis that my photography covers a very wide and diverse range of „subject matter“ which can only be found in Stockholm city. Yes, I know most of you have seen the tourist photos of Stockholm, but I'm not a tourist I'm a passionate „local photographer“ and I'm want to put Stockholm (the bold and the beautiful) on the „world stage“ as seen through the eyes of an „Invandrare“ (immigrant). It's been a long and very interesting journey and it continues with no end in sight. I hope you enjoy my images as much as I enjoyed photographing them.
