So you have an event or wedding in Dublin and need a photographer. What do you do? Google and hope for the best. Well here are my 5 top tips for what to do when looking for a professional photographer in Dublin.

Tip Number One - How To Research The Best Photographer For Your Event in Dublin

So if you have never hired a professional photographer before then the easiest option is to use Google. Now the question is what should you Google. If you search for a photographer then the number of results will be mind boggling. Try to define your event. For example if it is a Wedding and you live in Dublin then try goggling "Wedding Photographer Dublin". If your event is a corporate event then try searching for "Corporate Event Photographer Dublin". You will still have loads of professional photographers in Dublin to choose from but at least you have narrowed the search. 

Tip Number Two - Does The Photographer's Previous Work Meet Your Expectations

Now you have narrowed your list of professional photographers in Dublin to a manageable few. Next thing to do is to check out their website. "What am I looking for?" I hear you ask. Well, look at their previous work at similar events to your own. Consider if the photographs produced are similar to what you require. If you need social shots of the attendees enjoying themselves at your event then you don't need a photographer that only does landscapes. Also check if the website is updated regularly. This shows they are active, in demand and take pride in their work. A website that is updated often will also give you an idea of the consistency of a photographer's work. You can also look at images the photographer has produced that may be on different subjects than you require. This will give you a sense of how adaptable the photographer can be in different situations. At this stage you should pick two or three photographers that you like so you can make contact with them.

Tip Number Three - Make Contact With The Potential Photographers

Now you have a very short list of potential photographers for your event and it is time to make contact with them. Whatever your preference may be, contact the photographer by email or phone to discuss your requirements. Personally I prefer the phone as you should immediately see if you have a rapport with your potential photographer. Each wedding or event is different but the first question to ask is whether or not the photographer is available on the date you require. If the photographer is available then other good questions to ask include. How much will hiring a professional photographer cost? What is included in the price quoted? If you require physical prints of the photographs how much extra would this be? What can the images be used for?  How quick will the images be turned around? Even if your wedding or event is in Dublin confirm if traveling expenses are extra or included.

Tip Number Four - Make A Decision And Pick Your Photographer

After you have been in touch with the potential photographers you can now decide who to pick. Price is always a good place to start. If you are happy with the quality of each potential photographer's work and they all fit your requirements then the cheapest quote is always very tempting. However before diving in consider whether a more expensive quote is giving you something extra and does it represent value for money. Also consider how the photographer considered your requirements and how adaptable they were to meeting them. Good communication between a photographer and their client is essential to produce the images you need. It can be better to pay a little extra if you feel you have a rapport with the photographer you are hiring. If you are choosing a photographer for your wedding then consider you will have several meetings with them over a period of months to get all the details correct so dealing with somebody you feel comfortable with and have confidence with is essential.

Tip Number Five - Put It In Writing

To avoid misunderstandings with what is required it is always best to put your expectations in writing and ask the potential photographer to confirm they understand what is expected. It doesn't need to be drawn up by a team of lawyers or anything like that. A simple email can do. If the event has a larger budget such as a wedding a contract may be advisable. The photographer may be able to provide this. If they do then read it carefully and get advice if you feel you need it. Hopefully after all your careful research and discussion it will not be needed, but just in case there is a misunderstanding then you can refer to it. If you are not dealing with the photographer directly on the day of your wedding or event then forward the requirements to the person that will be and let the photographer know who the point of contact is. 

I hope the above has pointed you in the right direction for choosing a professional photographer in Dublin but please contact me if you have any questions at all.

Till the next time thanks for reading.

Simon

http://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/8/limited-edition-fine-art-photograph-to-commemorate-40-years-since-elvis-presley-died Limited Edition Fine Art Photograph to Commemorate 40 Years Since Elvis Presley Died

On August 16th 1977 Elvis Presley died at his home Graceland in Memphis Tennessee. He was just 42 years old. For half of his life he was probably the most famous person on the planet. Now 40 years later he is still instantly recognisable and part of our popular culture. In Ireland only this year the National Lottery started using his song "If I Can Dream" in their advertising campaigns. Whether is the young 50's Elvis, The 60's movie star or the 70's Las Vegas superstar his image is iconic.

In November last year I was lucky enough to be able to visit Memphis and Graceland to experience this corner of Rock and Roll history. It is amazing to see even 40 years after Elvis died that people from all over the world come to visit his "gaff" (Irish translation for "house"). Although he was born in Tupelo Elvis moved to Memphis when he was thirteen that is where he called home for the rest of his life. Memphians are very proud of their famous son and the fact he stayed in Memphis and didn't move to the Hollywood Hills or some other celebrity hang out. 

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of his passing I am presenting a limited edition of the below photograph depicting Elvis' fans graffiti at the gates of his home Graceland in Memphis. The edition is going to be only 99 16x20 inch prints done on archival quality 308gsm photo rag paper. Each print will be signed and numbered. A nice gift for the Elvis fan in your life :) I hope you enjoy it.

http://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/7/from-elvis-presley-boulevard-memphis-tennessee From Elvis Presley Boulevard Memphis Tennessee

So time to leave New Orleans managing not to get murdered or arrested. Apparently there are 27 other cities in the world that you are more likely to get murdered but number 28 was as dangerous as I was willing to go for the moment. Anyway, it was off to Memphis, home of the Blues, Beale Street, Sun Studios, Elvis and Graceland. Where to start?

After a ten-hour train ride from New Orleans the first stop was the hotel to drop the bags and figure out a plan. The hotel had a free shuttle bus into the centre of the city. Well when I say free the driver hustled me out of 5 Euro but that's another story. Beale Street was the first stop. The police had barriers on all the roads to allow everyone to walk on the street.

The city is proud of its musical heritage. Streets have been renamed after Elvis & BB King. Everywhere you go you are reminded of their musical history. Even stepping out of the elevator in the Carlton hotel we were greeted with a six-foot picture of Elvis in the seventies. Everywhere on Beale St. was either a music venue or a souvenir shop. You could feel the music in the city. In New Orleans sometimes you felt the music on Bourbon Street was sometimes just for the tourists. In Memphis it felt like the musicians were playing for themselves and we were allowed join in the party.

As it was the first night in town a lot of it was spent bar hopping trying to find the best places. They were all as good as each other it just depended on the type of music you wanted to listen to. Honky Tonk, Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Soul, Funk and even 2 guys doing a piano duel for tips from the audience. They would only play a request if it was written on a 5 dollar bill.

The below photograph was taken at the famous gates of Graceland where we decided to go the next morning. For as long as Elvis lived at Graceland there has been a tradition of writing messages on the outside wall. You could spend many hours just reading the messages from fans from all over the world who have made the journey. It is fascinating to see the amount of different places people have come from. Even if you're not a fan you would feel the love people have for Elvis even now almost 40 years after he passed.

If you click on the image below it will bring you to the gallery with a few more photographs from Memphis. I hope you enjoy and Keep on Rock'n

http://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/6/singing-and-dancing-the-blues-in-new-orleans Singing and Dancing the Blues in New Orleans

So after a day of being immersed in the French Quarter of New Orleans it was time to be immersed in some music and some bourbon. To Bamboula's 514 Frenchman St we went. There was a kicking three piece Blues band playing in the corner. The beer was flowing and the music was pumping.

The main man was playing to the crowd and encouraging people to get up and dance and so they did. Young or old it didn't really matter. Nobody seemed to have any inhibitions about getting up and shaking their stuff in front of the crowd.

The below photograph was taken late in the evening, well after midnight. The crowd was thinning out, the night was getting a bit cooler and the dancers a little bit more inebriated. The girl on the floor didn't care. She was going to enjoy herself. The girl at the table looking on looks a little envious maybe wishing she had the same confidence to just get up and dance. No judgement, I wasn't dancing either!

The blue tint is a nod to Lloyd Russell Sherman. His photograph of Elvis Presley in 1956 was used on the cover of a compilation of blues songs recorded by Elvis called "Reconsider Baby".  Check it out. As we were heading to Memphis next (The home of the blues and Elvis) it seemed appropriate

As always if you click on the photo it will bring you to the gallery from New Orleans. Enjoy :)

http://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/6/New_Orleans_Dixieland_Jazz_at_Halloween_USA_Travels_Pt_2 New Orleans Dixieland Jazz at Halloween - USA Travels Pt 2

So American Travels Part 2

After a few days visiting friends in Mobile and before heading to Memphis we stopped a few days in New Orleans. It was Halloween and from all accounts New Orleans is a party town at the best of times but Mardi Gras and Halloween are extra crazy. It didn't disappoint. All day every day the streets were filled with people in Halloween costumes. Everything from Jesus to Darth Vader. It was a place where anything could happen and it did.

You can see the city is still suffering from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Lots of poverty and depravation can be seen once you are outside the French Quarter. You wouldn't blame the locals if they decided to leave their city for somewhere new as their government seems to have neglected them but they have a fighting spirit and are proud of their heritage. A big part of this is the music that echoes through the streets day and night.  

The below photo was taken on the way back to the hotel one night when these musicians just pitched up on Bourbon Street, put a cardboard box in front of them for tips and started playing the most amazing Dixieland Jazz. There was no Galway Girl or Sweet Home Alabama here. You could see this was the music they were brought up on and they were now carrying the torch for the next generation. To these guys it was probably just another night but for the onlookers it was a piece of New Orleans magic they had come to see. Unforgettable!

Please click on the photo to see a few more shots of them. Enjoy!

http://www.simonpearephotography.com/blog/2017/5/some-american-travels---part-1---montgomery-alabama Some American Travels - Part 1 - Montgomery Alabama

Last year I was able to visit some of the southern states of America in the run up to the Presidential Election. After flying into Atlanta, Georgia the first stop was Montgomery Alabama. In 2016 it was a very quiet town but it has a remarkable history. From 1954 to 1960 Martin Luther King Jr was the pastor in the Baptist Church on Dexter Avenue (Pictured Below). It was here he organised the Montgomery Bus Boycott where Rosa Parks an African American woman refused to give up her seat to a white person in December 1955.

It was also here where Martin Luther King Jr in 1965 spoke to 25,000 people to demonstrate African Americans desire to exercise their voting rights. There are a few more photos in the gallery if you click on the picture below.

One of Dublin's iconic statues and Ireland's ability to not take itself too seriously. The Hags with the Bags on Dublin's Lower Liffey Street, just over the hapenny bridgeon the north side of the liffey. I think this image captures how the role of women in Ireland has changed over the decades.

Back from a few relaxing days in Carcassonne in the South of France. Very laid back city with loads of history and only a direct flight (from everyone's favourite airlaine) away :). The locals were very helpful and friendly. So much so my dreadful french wasn't an issue. I'm sure my French teachers would be either hanging their heads in shame or laughing their heads off!??

I had the pleasure of attending a fundraiser for friends of mine that have had a hell of a bad run of luck. In typical musician fashion a gig was organised to raise some funds to help repair their house which has been infested with a fungus that's not covered by their insurance. This is just one of the issues they have had to deal with recently. Over €2000 was raised on the night thanks to the generous support from Dom & Dorte's friends

I took a few pictures on the night and any of the proceeds from sales of the images will go to help Dom & Dorte. Click on the image below and it will bring you to the gallery.

All support is very gratefully received. Many thanks.

Yes, inevitable, predictable but still fascinating to see cars made over 50 years ago being the main form of transportation in Cuba and particularly Havana. You will see Fords, Buicks, Pontiacs, Chevrolets, Desotos, Cadillacs and many other vintage American Muscle cars from the 50's & 60's. Some barely held together some lovingly restored. You will also see the odd Lada the Russians donated as well. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Just back from a trip to Cuba. The spiritual home and final resting place of Che Guevara. Fascinating place. It is like Ireland about 40 years ago with sunshine and palm trees. Every where you turn there is a picture. Hopefully I captured something good. The first few I am putting up are from the city of Havana. If you click on the picture below it will bring you to the gallery. I hope you enjoy them.

Prints available from €4 plus P&P
