My name is Graham Daly and I am based in County Cork, down in the south of Ireland. I first started taking an interest in photography back in the summer of 2012 when I purchased my first DSLR. By January 2013 I was after catching the "photography bug" big time and I have been enthusiastically and passionately pushing myself forward on my photographic journey ever since. While I admire and like all forms of photography, there is an extra special feeling I get when I am outside in the natural world photographing the beautiful creations that exist around us whether it be the impressive Landscape features of the Irish coastline or the amazing nature and wildlife ecosystem that exists all around us here in Ireland. In April 2013 I was successful in obtaining an Associateship Distinction from from the SINWP (Society of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers) for a panel of 20 Digital Images that consisted of a collection of Seascapes that featured coastal scenes of both Ireland and elsewhere in Europe. Over the past 2 years I have been fortunate enough to have had several of my images accepted into various International Photographic Salons (Exhibitions) that are under the patronage of FIAP (Fédération Internationale de l'Art Photographique) and even more fortunate to have received some photographic awards from them! My philosophy when it comes to Photography is that it is not simply an "Art Form" like you may have heard from many a person, but rather it is a Craft that one has to learn and master before they can truly express their artistic and creative nature and personality. This is why I place a lot of weight and value towards continuous learning and the betterment of myself and my photographic skills and abilities so that I too can express my artistic vision.
