Advertising Photography Dublin
I love to work within advertising photography as each shoot can be so different to the last. One week I can be working in a cold field in the west of Ireland, and the next I’m photographing in a warm studio in Dublin. I feel my 15 years experience, and background in fine art and fashion photography really help when it comes to advertising photography. I never like to get stuck shooting the same subjects and I love to exploring new ideas. In advertising I really feel I can play with ideas and help develop them further when needed.
I previously studied fine art photography at IADT college Dublin. I feel this is where I learnt how to properly use photography equipment, and to light in different styles. I spent a lot of my time in the studio lighting different setups and learning about light. Whether it was shooting models in a fashion setting, or a still setup such as food, there were always lessons to be learnt regarding lighting, camera settings and composition. Of course back then it was a lot less forgiving as I was using film, and you didn’t know what anything would look like until your negatives were developed.
When I started out in my late teens photographing my favourite bands, I was using film and printing my negatives by hand, but a few years ago everything changed and now I only shoot digital. As much as I love film and working with negatives, the speed at which you can process a digital image just cannot be argued with. In advertising photography when a job needs to turn around fast, digital photography is my only choice. That being said, I feel that my background in using film and printing negatives is a great help to my work, and the photographs that I produce today. The technology might not be used as much these days, but the ideas behind them remain the same.
