Adrian's mountain photography of Ireland's high places is unique: something very few photographers in Ireland can claim to do on a national level. His are stunning images of Ireland's mountains from its highest summits and remotest valleys; in all seasons, at dawn and at dusk.
Adrian has climbed in Scotland, Wales, England, Romania and Iceland, along with the Alps and the Dolomites, but he considers the Irish mountains his spiritual home.
Adrian has also given his time in organising and speaking at various fund-raising events in aid of Mountain Rescue Ireland, The Irish Brain Tumour Support Group, Trócaire and Adi Roche's Chernobyl Children International.
As a fully insured and qualified Mountain Leader, Adrian is available for guiding assignments and leading groups in Ireland and the UK in non-winter conditions. As a member of the Mountain Training Association (MTA), Adrian also runs Mountaineering Ireland(MI)/Bord Oiliuint Sleibhe(BOS) approved Mountain Skills courses in Ireland. Adrian is Garda Vetted and has up-to-date Rescue and Emergency Care (REC3) first aid and Cardiac (AED) First Responder certificates.
He has extensive experience of Ireland's mountains, having already done several hundreds of routes nationwide. This puts him in an ideal position for book projects, magazine contributions and commissioned work with conservation and tourism-based organisations.
Adrian has a stock image library of Ireland's high places in all of its mountains areas. The selection displayed in the Portfolios is only a subset of this larger library. He can accommodate clients in the area of Irish mountain photography: limited-edition and fine-art collections, calendars and other corporate gifts can be made available on request.
He is also available to give lectures on Ireland's mountains at club events, corporate events, walking festivals and mountain festivals.
