Hi, I am Sally Martin.I am delighted to be chosen as Photographer of the Month. I love photography and although I have been taking photographs most of my life. I really only got into it seriously a few years ago when my family bought me my first DSLR for my 50th birthday. I love all genres as you can see from the selection I have chosen but i would like to focus on Portraits.
I was also delighted to be chosen as one of the finalists in Expressions 2016/2017.
These are some of my favourite photos of which I have many. Enjoy.
Thank you all for listening and watching.
My name is Gerry Blake. I am a photographic artist based in Co. Wicklow. My favourite photograph I’ve taken is this one of De Courcey Square Community Garden in Dublin. It encapsulates all I wanted to say about urban farming in one image.

Naomhan Joyce is an Artist, Sculptor, Performer and Teacher currently based in Limerick, Ireland. Having trained as a performer for years, Naomhan has always had a fascination with the human body and its strengths/weaknesses. This is the driving force behind his work.
Naomhan’s art encompasses many disciplines including Sculpture, Photography, Video and Performance. His inspiration comes from his personal life and how he interprets his own issues and neurosis. Naomhan’s current work explores the male body in relation to space. He focuses on his own body in particular, placing himself into strange positions fighting against gravity. He bases his work in a domestic setting, inspired by the concept of the uncanny home or ‘Das Unheimlich’, a site of terror and anxiety. Through the use of the male body, Naomhan subverts the notion of the ‘woman trapped by the home’, comparing the concept of ‘maleness’ with the Latin prefix ‘male-’ a signifier for something abnormal or evil. The character is almost inhuman, an automaton manipulated by the invisible force of the home.
Naomhan is a graduate from the Limerick School of Art and Design with a BA in Sculpture and Combined Media. He is currently teaching aerial in the BA in Voice and Dance and the MA in Contemporary Dance in the University of Limerick.

Anne Costello Photography, Roscommon. I discovered my love of photography a few years ago and in particular Portrait and Fine Art photography.
I really enjoy the whole process of creating an image from an initial idea, styling, photoshoot and especially the final process of editing, as this is where you make your image stand out as your own. I have chosen my image ‘Equilibrium’ as one of my favourite images for a number of reasons.
The model in this image is my daughter Sarah and she has been a huge part of my photography journey. For this she had to lie in a bath of water and milk conveying a sense of calmness and serenity, not an easy task when your cold and your makeup is running. My style of photography can be varied as I like to experiment and I am a strong believer that there should be no limit to creativity
I share some of my work on Instagram, Facebook, flicker, Fine Art America and have numerous images selected by Vogue Italia.
