“The image of Lough Tay was beautiful on your website, but it did not prepare me for how wonderful it is in print. It’s a real conversation starter as it hangs in pride of place in our living room. Thank You”

“I know I said it in person but I just wanted to thank you again. My brother loved my engagement present. The print of Howth Head brought him right back to day he asked Karen to marry him :-)”

”Hi John, I felt compelled to send you this note! Six months later I still find myself getting lost within the image, which hangs in my study over my computer. I find it incredibly relaxing just leaning back in my chair and staring in to that enchanting landscape.”

“John Dunne is an extremely talented photographer and we are proud to display his work at The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD). By capturing the character of some of Dublin’s best known landmarks, as well as the essence of the Irish landscape, his photographs will help showcase Ireland to delegates visiting The CCD from all across the world.”

Allan Boyle
Director of Event Services, The CCD

“Our project at Malahide Castle & Gardens, near Dublin needed a special eye to do justice to the unique plant collection of the late Lord Milo Talbot de Malahide.

Based on his extensive portfolio, we commissioned John to record the most precious specimens and capture how the mood of the garden changes throughout the seasons. This set of images formed the back bone of printed graphics and multimedia within our garden exhibition and was also used to great effect in marketing the attraction through signage and website. Images varied from macro shots of plant textures to landscapes of the garden.

The work produced was of a high standard and John’s management of a difficult subject matter, workflow and brief was excellent. This project required a number of site visits over a 12 month period working closely with our client acting on behalf of us as a subcontractor and we found him to be most professional and conscientious. The status of the project meant we had high expectations and John delivered against them within the confines of what could be achieved within budget and logistically given the ever changing nature of a garden. The online galleries of images were especially useful for client approvals and for easy image download by a number of parties in the design team.

John proved to be a good choice for this project and we would be glad to recommend him for similar work.”

“I was looking for some scenes of Clontarf with a difference for my Husband. When I came across John Dunne’s website I could see that he had not only a great photographers eye but an eye for more artistic work. John came and inspected the area and after seeing what I was looking for came back with some great pictures. He captured the essence of Clontarf without going for the obvious. We are delighted with the images”.

“A big thanks to Athena and John from Light Land and Sea for a great weekend of long exposure photography at the Copper Coast Waterford.  Over the weekend we visited some fantastic coves along the copper coast which were excellent for long exposure photography.  The weather was in our favour, the people were friendly and extremely pleasant.  The workshop was certainly insightful and resulted in some excellent imagery.”

“It takes me a while to look at my pictures without prejudice and a critical eye but I finally started reviewing my work in earnest. I got some really good shots I never would have seen before and realize what a great trip it was for me. I learned a lot about how to improve my long exposure, how to use the equipment I have and what equipment I needed to purchase to improve my work (not sure if I should be thanking you for that). I just wanted to thank you for your time and the experience. If you ever find yourself in New England, feel free to look me up.”

“My daughter and I recently had the pleasure of attending a Copper Coast Ireland Workshop with Athena and John. I had taken an online course taught by Athena so it was a great pleasure to meet her in person. John and Athena have great teaching skills and take a true interest in helping to raise your photography knowledge or letting you roam freely if that is your choice. Both are engaging and fun to be around. Meals were always entertaining. The photography locations were well researched and when I came home to Montana I was enthused with new energy and ideas. Thanks again Athena and John!”
