P A T R I C K D I N N E E N
I’m from Cork but have been living in beautiful Galway, West Ireland for the past 12 years. My favourite style of photography is ΔßŠ†®∀©† (abstract). I believe I have a natural talent for creating an original and memorable abstract photo from a scene that others would overlook.
There’s more to me than just photography-
I’m happily married and have 3 beautiful kids.
I did a terrifying bungee jump on my honeymoon; it could have been a very short marriage!
When not behind a camera I love music (think Pixies, The National, Morrissey, They Might Be Giants etc), reading, sports and Ben & Jerrys ice cream.
Besides photography I love football (Cork City and long time Chelsea fan) and cycling
WHY ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY?
I began, like most photographers, capturing anything and everything that caught my eye. But after time I noticed that my favourite photos tended to be abstract. Today everything has been photographed to death and the majority of photographs, no matter how good, look very similar.
I enjoy the challenge of trying to capture original and interesting abstract photos. Many of my photos burst with strong colours which reflect my happy, outgoing personality.
I have another, more general photography website http://www.photoblog.ie, which contains an eclectic mix of styles.
