About Owen...

With nearly two decades in journalism, Owen is a photojournalist based in Greystones in Wicklow. Having worked as a journalist, designer, editor, photographer and Picture Editor for Sunday World and INM he has a wealth of experience taking and using imagery for print and internet use.

A day in the life of a working photojournalist can range from celebrity portraiture to crime scenes; from social shots on the red carpet, to shooting and editing documentaries with the award-winning Investigations Team.

While his free time may be spent photographing the stunning coastline around Wicklow, his daughters and dogs... life in the largest newsroom in the country has given Owen the skill-set and experience to handle any photographic assignment.

"A love of photography was instilled by my father's home darkroom when I was growing up. A keen amature, his hobby filled our house with rolls of film, enlargers and the smell of fixer and toner. For me, it started a fascination with imagery.

"I'll never forget the first time I saw a print appear in a development tray in the box room of my childhood home. Although digital photography has changed the methods a lot, the magic of photography still excites and fascinates me."
