Above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography
Ciaran Whyte FIPF, EFIAP Silver
I’m a hobbyist photographer from Dublin, Ireland, that specialises in fine art and fine art nude imagery. Photography is a total obsession for me – my one and only creative outlet; a release from what is otherwise a pretty structured, organised and geeky existence.
The letters after my name represent distinctions from both the Irish Photographic Federation (IPF) and Fédération Internationale de l’Art Photographique (FIAP); the pursuit of which has provided me with a focus for my work over recent years.
In Ireland, I am the only photographer to have been granted the Licentiateship (LIPF), Associateship (AIPF) and Fellowship (FIPF) in 3 consecutive distinction sittings, passing all at the first time of asking, between April 2008 and April 2009. Since then I have pursued FIAP distinctions and have attained the AFIAP, EFIAP, EFIAP Bronze & Silver distinctions, again in consecutive years.
To date, my work has featured in two solo exhibitions, both here in Ireland and in Sofia in Bulgaria. In addition to these, it has also featured in group exhibitions (salons) in over 100 exhibitions across 35 different countries around the world.
Ultimately though, this website and blog is the main showcase for my work. It’s where you’ll find my most recent images, read about my most recent successes and failures and discover just how average a photographer I really am
