Damien-ProfileI’m an Irish landscape photographer based in Galway in the west of Ireland. I have been taking photographs for the past 4 years. Over that time, I have photographed everything from weddings to christenings but my passion is landscape photography, specifically night photography.

Night photography requires an understanding of numerous variables, much more than daytime photography in order to capture a scene. It is this endeavour to master the skills of night photography that interest me. It’s a long journey but one which I enjoy taking every night I go out.
Night time photography as with other forms of photography require an understanding and control of available light. With nighttime photography, one sometimes has to create the light that is not there. To achieve this, I use numerous different lighting techniques at source to create the photographs, shown here on this website.
Over the coming months it is my aim to share as much of this technical knowledge as possible. Feel free to leave a comment/message and I’ll do my best to reply.
My photographs to date have been used on various astronomy websites and numerous Irish tourism websites. My work has also been  published in the International astronomy magazine ‘Sky and telescope’.
