Negotiating a photography job

Photographers have a tough time negotiating with clients. Slightly NSFW speech but very funny video by Graham Trott about how to conduct yourself when offered a photo assignment. (via and here)

St Patrick and the Volkswagen

St Patrick and the Volkswagen

A Volkswagen Beetle parked across the road from St. Patrick’s Catholic Church on the Lower Glanmire Road in Cork. The church was built in 1840. The car, not so old.

Shot on the recent photowalk in the city.

Good night?

Good night?

No matter what state the economy, the pubs are still full and there’s plenty of drinking.

Cobh in Black and White

A dump of the b/w images I shot in Cobh over the weekend. It was a strictly “stroll around and do nothing” day (so sorry Conor for not calling in!) as Adam was being minded by my sister.

As I said a few days ago, I shot everything in black and white and I’m pleased with the results. From about the shots of the rope on I used RAW+Jpeg but I still prefer the b/w images.

Hope something here takes your fancy!

Patrick’s Hill Cat

Lots more Life photos of Cork too. Many of recognisable locations.

Five to Twelve

Five to Twelve

It’s almost noon and I’m at the top of Patrick’s Hill taking photos of the Northside of Cork City. Pictured is St. Anne’s in the foreground, the County Hall in the background and lots in between!

Didn’t have time to work on any shots from yesterday. Too much to do.
