Our little shop

Thanks so much for taking a look at our little shop! Our photography is centred on Ballycotton Bay and surrounding areas. We are utterly passionate about the sea and we are heavily involved in Clean Coasts Ballynamona, East Cork Biodiversity and The Sea and Land Trust. So you’ll detect a certain theme in our cards and images… 😉

We are super proud to be members of Visual Artists Ireland!

We’ve taken care to source plastic free materials for our greeting cards and Irish made solid wood frames. We want you to enjoy what we see as much as we do – we know not everyone is fortunate enough to live by the coast.

We print only 1 to 20 copies of each image so you can buy knowing that it’s not a mass produced item, it’s special.

Keep an eye out for our charity calendar for Clean Coasts Ballynamona – you can order it on the Sea and Land Trust website or buy locally in shops. And if you’re interested in sponsoring a month next year let us know!

So, the story:

The forecast was cloudy, but we headed down to Ardnahinch Beach anyway, cos like, y'never know! The last attempt at capturing the moon (Strawberry) went pretty well! And we met some fellow photographers on the beach - great comradery!

So off we went, it's just down the road, tripods out - another guy was there, a guy Sally'd been following on Instagram and she got a bit starstruck but it was all a good laugh. He talked her out of her cloud pessimism, have faith, have faith.... we were counting the minutes down to 9.50 pm. Watching the horizon like hawks.

Next thing - up popped the feint pink glow of the Buck moon, a supermoon, one of three this summer. And it was mesmerising as it rose, became more clear, dipping in a out of clouds. We all went quiet, all you could hear was the click click click, and the call of a curlew. Nothing else.

We had guests from Holland in our Airbnb and we'd warned them that the moon was due to rise behind the island at 9.50 - and down they came. Gobsmacked. Along came a previous guest whom we'd also alerted.

And we all stared. Fab.

, A4 and A3+ size prints in Irish Made white solid wood “box” frames. And finally, we have some panoramic prints for the spacious wide screen feel!

Why buy from us??

Great question!! Because our prints are framed in high-end (real wood and glass) box frames that are from an Irish company (teeeeny carbon footprint – yay!) so we were thrilled to find them!

PLUS all our photographs are our own, and are printed – by us – on professional Permajet Oyster 271 paper – a beautiful finish that is midway between matt and pearl – perfect for watery scenes. We print them ourselves so we have a super quick turnaround time for orders! You’ll fall in love – just as we have!

PLUS – we’re lovely… sound like.

In the meantime – if you’re stuck for time and just want a voucher for our images – NO PROBLEM!! Our giftcard is ready to purchase for €25, €50 or €100+ !
