Anzon Ventures, Cork Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement I've worked as a graphic designer in Cork for the best part of 20 years. Not having the budget to commission or license local photography used to drive me crazy. The arrival of good digital cameras allowed me to go out and take my own shots. When I had built up a large collection, it occured to me that other designers might find my image bank of use. So I have made them available to purchase on-line through stockireland.blogspot.com, and I'm planning to release my first collection of 100 Royalty Free shot's on CD in the near future, Cork & Beyond One. If this proves successful I hope to photograph other Irish locations for Stock Ireland, and possibly hook up with other photographers to grow the collection.
I decided I could make furthur use of a significant resource by joining IMAGEKIND and opening up my gallery to the public, and by applying them to merchandise - mugs, mousemats, calanders etc. - the results of which can be seen at my shop on CAFE PRESS
