Donal is a specialist Architectural and Interior Photographer who shoots nationally and internationally for the design and build community. 

He uses his vast experience and attention to detail at all stages of a project from pre-planning, the shoot itself, to meticulous post-production. Each resulting image is crisp, light and colour balanced and naturalistic in style, clearly revealing the uncommon vision of both the photographer and designer.

Donal has a unique instinct for both the restful detail and the dramatic vista, which works across all project types from high street retail to large scale commercial fit-out. 


Donal mostly works on a commissioned basis, and is always happy to discuss your requirements and your project, no matter how large or small.

He offers a simple, scalable and cost effective pricing structure . Where possible, commissioning costs are subsidised through co-commissioning arrangements or through project image licensing, which can be a cost effective solution for smaller suppliers.

He is as happy working for small niche contractors as large design consultancies, believing that great images are as likely to be found in the small details as the immense vistas.
