Irish Landscape Photography - Photos of Ireland | Gareth McCormack

About Gareth

Gareth McCormack is an Irish photographer and filmmaker specialising in landscape, travel and adventure imagery. His professional career began in 1997 when he began shooting and writing for the Irish outdoor magazine Walking World Ireland. His horizons soon expanded and within long he was travelling across the globe to work on contracts for Lonely Planet Publications.

Since then his images have been used by many of the world's most prominent magazines and newspapers, including Time, National Geographic and the New York Times. He has also supplied images to a long list of commercial clients, including Tourism Ireland, Air New Zealand, Microsoft and Warner Bros.

Gareth's style is characterised by bold and dynamic compositions, and galvanised by striking natural light. His images have a rare ability to evoke the essence of a location, activity or brand, and have been used for over a decade to promote Ireland in marketing collateral and advertising campaigns. His photos have also been used as key murals in the interior of visitors centres at Ballycroy National Park and the Cliffs of Moher.

More recently Gareth has applied his visual skills to motion imagery and time lapse photography, working on the film documentaries Secrets of the Irish Landscape (RTE) and 4000 Year Old Cold Case: The Body in the Bog (BBC4/PBS).

In 2013 Gareth also began to offer photography workshops, using almost twenty years of photographic expertise to help other photographers improve their technical skills and develop their own unique vision of the world around them.
