I’m an amateur photographer. I had been into photography as a kid with my dad’s old Pentax SLR and later my own cheap SLR when I was a teenager. I never really got into anything more than taking a few snaps though.
When I realised that there were very few high resolution, good quality images from craft beer festivals in Ireland, I invested in a Canon EOS 700D DSLR to take images. I actually got a great deal on it from argos when it was on sale for €365 with kit lens. Since then, I have invested in a number of lenses and other items. Those beer images are available on the Beoir Flickr Page.
I’m currently a member of Mullingar Camera Club which meets every Wednesday evening at the Mullingar Arts Centre. At some pint, I hope to get my LIPF distinction but I’m not quite ready to take that road as I need more experience I think.
I upload my own images on my own Flickr page.
