Shaka1277

Creative events photographer

I'm a 26 year-old student working towards a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry. I'm English but currently live in Dublin, Ireland. 

Aside from photography, I enjoy running, cycling, playing video games, practising music, and reading comic books in my spare time. 

While I primarily operate in South-East Ireland, I do travel to the UK a number of times each year. A small number of these trips are for photoshoots. This usually centers on cosplay photoshoots at Comic-Con events.

my styles

Most of my commercial photography centers on academic conferences and graduations, product photography, family photos and events, and headshots & environmental portraits for private professionals.

On my own time, I mostly endeavour to capture the essence of unusual buildings & cathedrals via architectural landscapes, and animals' personalities via portraits.

My assignments

Some of my commercial assignments include:

27th PhotoIUPAC Dublin 2018

UCD Chemistry Research Day 2018
