In March I was sent to Ireland to photograph for National Geographic in partnership with Tourism Ireland. I flew to Dublin where I was met by my fixer and off we went to cover Londonderry/Derry and Belfast. We spent the first few nights covering the city of Belfast where we photographed everything from the new Titanic Museum to the Michelin starred restaurant, Ox. The next stop was Londonderry/Derry, the famed walled city about 2 hours by car west of Belfast. Both cities have a lot to offer in terms of historic architecture, lively music, and delicious food. You can read the story about those cities online here. A must-do in Ireland is to head to a pub and listen to some traditional folk music. In Belfast, The Garrick is a great venue to do just that. In Derry/Londonderry, head to the Guildhall Taphouse, just outside the historic city walls, grab a pint and see who turns up for a jam session. The second part of the shoot was covering heritage towns of the east. That story took me to some lovely locations, including Cork, Cobh and Carlingford. At every stop, there was a mix of modernity and historically significant landmarks. I look forward to my next opportunity to visit Ireland. Go raibh maith agat!
