Above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography
Ciaran Whyte FIPF, EFIAP Bronze
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. Although truth be told, I tend to be attracted to the geeky elements in photography too.
There are a lot of letters after my name, but this no more makes me a better nor a worse photographer than you. For me, these distinctions, both from the IPF and FIAP have provided me with a focus for my work and I continue to pursue them relentlessly. In Ireland, I am one of the very few photographers to be granted the Licentiateship (LIPF), Associateship (AIPF) and Fellowship (FIPF) in 3 consecutive distinction sittings, between April 2008 and April 2009. Since then I have pursued FIAP distinctions and have attained the AFIAP, EFIAP & EFIAP Bronze distinctions, again in consecutive years, with the remaining EFIAP levels soon to follow I hope.
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 70 exhibitions across 32 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
