"I began taking photos in college because I wanted to record and share my explorations. Now I go on adventures with the main purpose of taking photos. When I'm not creating I enjoy teaching and sharing."

"I love dark textural tones and silvery highlights. I work predominantly in black and white, both in analogue and digitally. I think working in this way, without the use of colour, brings the viewer straight to the soul of the landscape."

Rohan Reilly is a fine art landscape Photographer based in Baltimore, Cork, Ireland.

Daragh began to take photographs to convey his experiences and love of nature. Without the use of artificial light, his photography aims to present the smaller details of nature that we often overlook. As a result, his work gently reminds us to appreciate our beautiful planet.
DARAGH MULDOWNEY TALK : THE BIG DAY : 7 October 2018
Charlie Waite is now firmly established as one of the world’s leading Landscape photographers. Having worked in Theatre & TV for the first ten years of his professional life, he became fascinated by theatrical lighting & design. Gradually the landscape and the way it can be revealed to us through light & shade stole him away from the acting profession. His style is unique in that his photographs convey a spiritual quality of serenity and calm.
Sandra Bartocha grew up in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and as daughter of a photographer she got interested in photography quite early. She concentrates on her passion for the outdoors and soon specialised in photographing local landscapes and nature; in particular coast lines, forests and flowers. Her main goal is to create images that interpret a scene in an artistic and aesthetic way to evoke emotions - rather than just documenting a scene.
"For over 25 years my time spent roaming the hills of Kerry and beyond in search of images that truly resonate with me has been immensely rewarding. Nothing beats standing alone on a mountain or by the sea at dawn with only the sounds of nature and the approaching light to compete for your attention."
Chris has spent his entire career as a visual communicator specializing in conceptual and product photography. He has won numerous awards including the Communication Arts award for photography in 2012 and the 2013 One Eyeland Photographer of the Year award. His work has often appeared in the photographic press and he is sought after for interviews and speaking engagements at various universities and photographic associations.
Thorarinn Jonsson (Thor) is a native Icelander, a professional guide and a photographer based in the town of Akranes, close to the capital city of Reykjavik. Born in 1976, Thor grew up in the small village of Hellissandur on Snæfellsnes peninsula and learned at young age to appreciate unspoiled nature. Thor loves traveling in good company, fishing and hiking and keeps his camera close at all times, just in case the perfect moment appears.
"It's really about just getting out there and appreciating some of the amazing things the world can throw up for you. I love how light can transform a scene into something completely unexpected, and I strive for originality and creativity in interpreting all the world has to offer"
"I can recall my father in the sixties developing transparencies in his dip and dunk tank. Every chance I got I would play with his Nikon F Photomic T and soon I became familiar with aperture, shutter speed, film and ISO. The fascination continues to this very day."
