A few weeks ago I had the privilege of travelling to Ethiopia to do some documentary photography work for a local Charity based in Randalstown.
My knowledge of Ethiopia had been informed and influenced by the media and I expected there to be mainly deserts. However the route from Addis Ababa to Shashamene revealed a green and mountainous landscape.

Over recent months I have been intrigued by the new phenomena in Photography, it’s called Time-lapse, where a photographer captures many images before combining them together to create a film.
This was my first attempt at a Time-lapse, at one of my favourite trees in Northern Ireland. The photographs were edited in Lightroom and subsequently process in QuickTime to create the Timelapse.
Over the next number of months I hope to get a variety of timelapses from other locations, having worked more on learning how to capture them in various lighting conditions.

This is an abstract image taken one summers afternoon on a visit to Downhill beach with the kids.
Downhill Beach is situated beneath Mussenden Temple (one of the most photographed buildings in Northern Ireland). Definitely worth a visit if you are up the North Antrim Coast.

In early July 2013, whilst on a family holiday on the North Antrim coast of Ireland I spent a number of nights waiting for the right tidal conditions and lighting to capture this shot of the swimming pool beside the Convent in Portstewart. On the final night, the tide was going out as twilight closed in and gave me the opportunity to capture the steps in the lovely Blue light.
