I’m a Belfast born people photographer based in San Francisco.

Most people know me from the pictures I’ve been taking at the Burning Man festival every year since 1998. Here’s an interview describing what I do there and what makes me tick.

I’m available to shoot weddings, editorial assignments, ad campaigns, commercial work, model portfolios, portraits and events, both in the San Francisco bay area and worldwide.

I actually enjoy shooting weddings – they’re happy, spontaneous, emotional events with endless opportunities for great shots. Please visit my weddings gallery to see if my style works for you. I feel I charge a fair price for the work I do but tend to get booked pretty far in advance, especially for the Northern California wedding season (August to November).

My goal is to photograph who people are, not just what they look like. For some reason, I’ve a knack of putting my subjects at ease and capturing their inner essence (corny as that sounds). It’s partly because I spend plenty of time on shoots and let my subjects do their own thing. I like to see what unfolds in front of my camera.

everything else
As I hope you’ll agree after having a look around the galleries, I’m a pretty versatile photographer. No matter what you need photographed, there’s a good chance I can do it.
