How Photography Connects Us

“The photo director for National Geographic, David Griffin knows the power of photography to connect us to our world. In a talk filled with glorious images, he talks about how we all use photos to tell our stories.”

Nothing much I need to add here.  If you have 15 minutes to watch this video – it is well worth it.

Food & Wine

Two of my pictures made it to the May 2010 issue of Food & Wine magazine including this one of Brendan from Augustine’s Rocket Soup (which actually appears three times including full page on page 51)

The recipe is there too if anyone fancies giving it a try!

The Misses and I had the pleasure of dining at Augustine’s @ The Clarion on Saturday night.  Wow!  We’re still talking about some of the dishes we had.  Thanks so much to Brendan and Carol for a great night.

All this publicity is centred around the re-introduction of their tasting menu: six courses for €25.  I can  highly recommend it – 021 427 9375

Alison and Family

A big thanks to Alison and her kids (and her Mum) who were the first to take part in the Spring Promo before Easter.

Spring Promo Extended

The sessions for the Spring Promo are now in full swing.  I’ve been having a lot of fun out and about around the County and there are some lovely pictures coming out of the sessions.

The only ‘problem’ so far being that with the great weather we’ve been having it looks a bit more like summer than spring!

A big thanks to those families who have already taken part – and I’m looking forward to the rest of the sessions this month.

The galleries from the first sessions are just going out to the families involved so once they’ve had a chance to have a good look at them I’ll post a few pictures up here.

In the meantime it looks like Spring is running late and I’m worried I might not get any bluebell pictures in April so I’m considering running a couple of weekday sessions in May.

So anyone still interested in a session who would be available on a weekday in May there is still a chance to take part in the promo.   Remember the session is free and you get a free framed 8×12 print in return for you time.  I will be using the pictures here on the blog, on the website and in future publicity material for the outdoor sessions.

So call or e-mail now or 087 683 8511

Egg Hunts

Another successful day hunting for eggs in the garden on Sunday.  Once again we ran the egg hunt with visual clues so that those kids who aren’t yet Readers can get there as quickly as those who can.

It’s a pretty simple set up: I wander around taking pictures of good places to hide things; print them small; cut them out; then hide them around the garden, one clue leading to another and eventually to some chocolate (it is easier if you work backwards).

Where are you hiding?
