Landscape photographer and artist Ollie Byrne has just recently released his new website where his colour and monochrome portfolio is now available for viewing. On his blog he regularly airs his thoughts and feelings on all things related to photography giving frank and open advice on everything from capture to print along with his honest opinion on the gear he uses and recommends .
It is obvious he has a passion for this art-form and wants to share this with others so that they too can experience the passion of photography. If you are a beginner or an experienced photographer looking to enhance your existing skills he can offer one to one and small group mentoring. A session can be tailored to your individual needs whether it's planning, fieldwork, or digital darkroom.
Selected images from his portfolio are available as limited editions in both small format on water colour paper and in large format as unique Diamond Acrylic.
Born in the Irish midlands he first became interested in photography at a young age, enthralled with outdoor life, nature and land objects. He often camped out in the mountains and forests taking photographs of stunning scenery and surroundings and was enchanted with the lakes, rivers and waterfalls in the area.
Initially the purpose of his photography was to make a visual diary of these trips. As he took more photos he became interested in the development of them and wanted to learn more and aspired to make his own prints.
Through self study, external courses and constantly photographing the landscape he has refined his photographic style.
‘everything i have done or felt has been in some way influenced by the impact of the natural scene’
First known for his black and white photography he is also just as comfortable shooting colour, as well as not being afraid to explore creative techniques such as intentional camera movement and multiple exposures. His photos are beautifully composed and are known for capturing the essence of their location. He has combined commercial assignments with his own work and is passionate about the education of aspiring photographers
