About me

Hey, I'm Guy!

I’m a professional photographer and filmmaker from Dublin. I’m also an experienced sailor and wannabe pro skier. A chemistry with molecular modelling student, come computer science student, turned professional artist.

I’m currently just focusing on being a creative and exploring that in a million different ways, from new mediums to completely different fields, working as hard as possible to learn as much as possible, constantly striving to improve my craft.

While I’ve been predominantly shooting behind the scenes, lifestyle and portrait photography for recent clients, I’ve also worked extensively in video, from short form online ads to documentary work, and in photography disciplines such as 35mm film, music, maverick sports, commercial advertising, photojournalism, landscapes and so much more. Stemming from a keen interest in physics, I pride myself on a substantial technical knowledge of photography and cinematography.

From my own entrepreneurial endeavours, I have a pretty in-depth knowledge of web development and ecommerce; from front end design, branding and marketing, to cloud services and hosting, app development and tech stacks, product development, fulfilment, integrating APIs and business automations, billing and payment systems, and so much more.

In addition I've always been very interested and self immersed in the creator economy and I thus have an acute understanding of creator businesses, workflows and revenue streams; from brand deals, AdSense, merchandise, patrons and more.

And I'm also currently involved in a fintech start-up too, as CXO, and one of many projects under my remit is leading a complete UX and UI overhaul of their SaaS product.

I’m incredibly passionate about skiing, sailing, rugby, musical theatre, and all things internet culture, journalism & media. I’m very interested in, and like to think I’m well versed in, science, tech and computing.

If you’d like to support me as a creative I’d love if you could hit follow on social media or subscribe on YouTube, you can also check out my fine art print shop (shipping world wide), or support me directly through BuyMeACofee (thank you so much!), and of course if you'd like to work together on a project I'd love to hear from you (keep reading!)

Principles

Strive for excellence

There is a crucial difference between striving to produce excellent work and perfect work. Excellence by definition is to surpass, 'the quality of being outstanding or extremely good', so when you strive for it you are constantly looking at where you are now and finding ways you can improve just that little bit, everyday and with every project. On the other hand when you strive for perfection you are aiming at something that is so good that it cannot get any better, an unrealistic standard that by its nature is a long term pursuit, if even possible to attain at all. So in a rapidly changing world if you wait until everything is 'perfect', your competitor will be way ahead of you and your customer will have gone somewhere else. I've still got a lot to learn but you better believe I'm working as hard as I can to continue to level up my skills and what I can bring to the table in everything I do as a creative, and I really hope that gets reflected in my work and that my clients get to reap the results of my continued improvement.

Focus on the little things

As the saying goes 'how you do anything is how you do everything', the act itself is not that important, but the principle is, doing the right thing is always the right thing to do. When we focus on the small things it bleeds into everything else we do. If you have the discipline to stick to the process and not skip over important details, you set a precedent for yourself and others. I'm constantly challenging myself to go the extra mile, to dot the i's and cross the t's and get all the little things right, many of which the client may not even notice, but it adds an element of genuine care and professionalism — and that is something clients notice, even if they can't specifically point to what it was that made the difference.

"Details matter, it's worth waiting to get it right" - Steve Jobs

Now, I do want to add that when it comes to deliverables, certain details matter more than others, I'm sure you've heard of the 80/20 rule, so as I've eluded to above, although I will always strive for excellence and will put my heart and soul behind making sure your project is as good as it can be, there does come a point where done is better than perfect, and that is where we hit publish.

Strong collaboration

Client collaboration is a key ingredient in the success of any project and if there are problems it'll often hinder the quality of the creative output itself. Therefore, I personally endeavour to; be clear, consistent and timely in my own communication; to keep clients in the loop about each new project phase and status, often sharing them into project resources and dashboards; to keep shared files, documents and communication channels concise and organised; to allow the client to actively participate in anyway they can; and to be as transparent as possible with costs and billing. I hope that in doing this I can continue to build trust and long term relationships with all clients.

Working with me

Steps

  1. Get in touch via the 'Let's work together' form below.
  2. I'll let you know if your project is something I can or can't do, and whether I have the capacity to take it on within your timeline.
  3. If I need a bit more info I'll ask you to elaborate more via email or we'll schedule a super quick video call to chat about the project – sometimes it's just easier to say what you mean and I can ask the right questions to tease out the details.
  4. Then I'll get a quote and service agreement over to you, based on my understanding of your project, and we'll go from there!
Note:
  • I will never inflate costs because a budget is bigger.
  • I'd love to be referred or combined with other services but I will always be transparent with the end-client about my pricing, this is because in the past bad actors have marked up my services and haven't actually added any value themselves, their clients were misled and were under the impression that I was charging more for a project than I actually was and they just got in the way of every process.

Software

I love good software and I simply wouldn't be able to keep on top of everything without it. Below are just some of the tools I currently run my business with, the vast majority of which I use every single day.

Taking into account a host of factors from UX & UI to sheer functionality, to privacy, security and so much more, I’m very particular about the tools I choose to use. I'd be more than happy to offer you advice if you're in need a new solution for your business (or personal life that is!) especially if you're looking to automate processes across products.
