Margaret Dunne, Manager of Dalkey Castle and Heritage Centre, presenting David McWilliams with a framed photograph by John Fahy at the conclusion of the 2011 Dalkey Book Festival.

The  photo is of a bottlenose dolphin in front of a snow covered Dalkey Island and featured on the front page of The Irish Times last November.

It was printed and framed by Stephen Crozier of 360-dpi bespoke framers of Dun Laoghaire.  See: www.360-dpi.com.  It's a Permajet Oyster print, dry mounted and then framed with a double mount in a limed bevelled edge frame.

Thanks to Dalkey Community Council for again featuring my work on their front page.  This time it's a photo of Sorrento Terrace and Dalkey Island taken from the path down to The Vico Bathing Place.  Sorrento Terrace is home to movie director Neil Jordan and the pink house is owned by U2 guitarist 'The Edge'.  They must enjoy watching the dolphins playing in the bay there!

Just below this spot are the steps from which I took the Dalkey Island dolphin snow photo that featured in The Irish Times last November.

Having been asked by so many people, I've had some other frames made up in different shapes and sizes including the photo at the top of this page in a wide frame.  See them in The Bedroom Studio.


4th April 2011

I now have some canvas frames on display in The Bedroom Studio in Dalkey.  These can be ordered with a special coating that protects the surface and makes it wipe-cleanable!  This can be handy if you wanted to display an image in, for example, a kitchen.

My Irish Times dolphin photo is on the cover of the current edition of the Dalkey Community Council Newsletter.  It also gets a big mention inside in Michael Ryan's 'Nature Corner' column.

Another photographer has a dolphin photo which is similar to mine for sale in a shop unit opposite Mugs Cafe in Dalkey Village.  He had a temporary shop in Glasthule Village before Christmas.  I want to emphasise that his photo is not the photo that was on the front of  The Irish Times and on TV3 during the recent snow.
My Irish Times original dolphin photograph and more of my work  is on sale in Dalkey at The Heritage Centre, The Bedroom Studio, The Exchange Bookshop, Select Stores, on this website and by contacting me directly - nowhere else!


31st December 2010

Happy new year to all my friends and colleagues.  I hope you have enjoyed my photos during 2010 and I hope I can keep you entertained again through 2011.

Happy Christmas everybody!

My Irish Times Dalkey dolphin photo made the final four in the Best Photo section  in the TV3 Media Awards.  Vincent Browne gave it great praise, thanks Vincent and thanks to those who nominated me.


9th December 2010

So many people have contacted me wanting to buy my Irish Times Dolphin photo that I've made up a price list and put it on the website.  The Heritage Centre in Dalkey contacted me and I now have a large framed print on display and on sale there.  The Bedroom Studio are displaying and selling my work too. 
By the way, my photos are also on sale on this website and directly from me.  Give me a call if you would like to purchase something.

I got some great photos of Dalkey Village in the snow today.  I used a waterproof cover for my camera and was able to shoot in a snowfall.

Wow!  I submitted my dolphin photo to the Irish Times and they have published it today on their front page.  That's the first time I've ever submitted a photo for publication and I struck gold at my first attempt.  My phone has been hopping all day with friends ringing and texting to congratulate me and people ringing to look for prints having got my number from The Irish Times.  What a day!

28th November 2010

I went out early this morning to get some photos in the fresh snow which had fallen overnight.  I met two other photographers in Sorrento Park and we were taking photos of the snow covered island when one spotted dolphins near The Vico Bathing Place.  I had spent much of the summer looking for these dolphins  and had presumed they had moved away in the autumn, but there they were!  We abandoned what we were doing and relocated to The Vico Bathing Place.  It's amazing how few people know where this is and how to get there.  I had to show the others where the entrance was.  We were so lucky - the dolphins played around us for over half an hour.  The morning sun came out at one point and illuminated Dalkey Island with a beautiful light.  As if on cue, one of the dolphins jumped out of the water and I got this perfect once in a lifetime shot!
