On Saturday 26 April 2008, a selection of my photos was awarded with the Licentiateship of the Irish Photography Federation (LIPF), the first of 3 levels a photographer can achieve in Ireland. When applying for a distinction like the LIPF, one has to choose to go either for a theme — such as portraits — or diverse styles.

As you can see from my photos, I decided to go for the latter option. The photos were mainly taken during the travels I did during the years 2005 - 2007, covering countries such as Austria, Canada, France and my then home of choice, Ireland.
