Dermot1

Hello and welcome to my website. Thank you for your interest in my work.

My name is Dermot, I'm a landscape photographer based in Alberta, Canada. If you're looking for high quality fine art photography to decorate your home or office then I would be delighted to hear from you. I specialize in producing large format, gallery quality artwork and have sold many prints to happy collectors from around the world. I only use the finest quality printing and mounting materials available in the world today, including ChromaLuxe metal prints and acrylic facemounts. Please visit the Print Info section to learn more. Take your time to view my images and if you have any questions or comments please don't hesitate to contact me. You can also follow me by clicking on my social media links in the menu.

I am originally from Ireland, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Philosophy and Classical Civilization, but I've been living in Canada since 2005. I have travelled and photographed all over this beautiful country (and many other places worldwide) and now live with my wife and children near the Rocky Mountains of Alberta.

I have used a variety of camera systems over the years including film and digital.  In the past, much of my work was created using medium and large format panoramic cameras (Hasselblad Xpan, Linhof Technorama 617) and Fuji Velvia transparency film. I'm now using a fully digital workflow, currently the Sony A7R3 system.

Equipment

The Linhof Technorama 617 SIII. Much of my panoramic work was created with this camera.

I have been fortunate to receive many awards and honours throughout my photographic journey. Some awards of note include a National Accreditation in Fine Art from the Professional Photographers of Canada, a Kodak Gallery Award for photographic excellence, and the title of Master Photographer in Fine Art from Master Photographers International.

Awards

My goal with my photography is to create exciting images that evoke a feeling or emotion in the viewer. I'm not merely trying to make a simple record of a place. The image must go deeper than that to convey the essence of the scene. And ultimately it must look good when hung up on the wall!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you find something that you like.
