About Irish Images.org Photography


Michael Cullen of Irish Images.org

I am a photographer from Wexford Town. My images have been published in newspapers and TV in Ireland and internationally, and include The Irish Times,The Irish Examiner, RTE, TV3, BBC, and ITV. I began taking photos about 15 years ago. I studied photography and journalism full-time in Marino College in Fairview, Dublin. I also worked with award-winning wedding photographer, James Travers, in his Dublin City Studio. I really enjoy taking portraits of individuals, couples, families, children and pets. I also take a lot of sports’ photos, of GAA, soccer internationals, tennis and snooker tournaments.

Probably my greatest achievement was photographing the stained glass of Harry Clarke for the book ‘Strangest Genius’, with Lucy costigan, and being shortlisted for Best Irish Published Book of the Year in 2010, and listed in the top 25 Great Irish Books. I launched our Harry Clarke website, www.harryclarke.net) on RTE’s Nationwide programme that was specially broadcast from Dingle for the occasion.  Images used on the Harry clarke film documentary entitled, A Revel in Blue: The Life and Work of Harry Clarke.

We are currently developing a documentary and feature film based on Lucy Costigan's latest book, 'Glenveagh Mystery', about the mysterious disappearance of Harvard professor and author, Arthur Kingsley Porter with Lugh Films.
