What’s your style?
I like to work in a non intrusive fashion, capturing natural photographs rather than ridged and static.
What are your qualifications?
I have a Diploma in Photographic Media from Griffith College Dublin, as well as a life time of experience.
Do you offer retouching of images?
I retouch all of my images. When I say retouch, I mean simple clean editing, no heavy air brushing.
Can I have all the images from the shoot/the unedited images?
Sorry, but no. This is unfinished work and does not best represent the event. Blinks, unflattering speaking poses, coughes and sneezes, I’ll select the images that don’t include these!
Do you bring lighting equipment?
I prefer to work with natural light. Flash can be very intrusive and distracting, but sometimes necessary.
Where are you based?
I am based partly in Dublin and partly in Clare. This gives me a bit more freedom to work in both the East and the West of the country.
Do you travel for shoots? Will this be included in the price?
I do indeed! And within reason, but we will arrange this before the event/shoot.
How long will it be before I receive my final images?
For small shoots I aim to have the photos finished within a week. For larger, full day shoots, the photos will be completed within 3-4 weeks.
Will you meet us before the event to talk through the details?
Sure! Skype, tea, email, whatever suits you best. I generally like a quick run down of the event so I know what to expect.
Do you require a deposit?
Yes, €50 for full day events
Do you provide colour or B+W images?
I use my discretion. While editing the images I will decide if the image suits B+W or colour. Some images work brilliantly in B+W while others pop in colour!
Why the name Trigger Bug?
It’s hard to put my finger on really! The thought of bugs dancing about playfully on the trigger of the camera really appealed to me. It’s quite fun and cheerful and there were too many “shutter bug” photographers out there…
