HI, MY NAME IS PATRICK DINNEEN
I’m Patrick Dinneen, from Cork but living in Galway, West Ireland. I shoot anything and everything; an eclectic mix you could say.
I’ve always liked photography but only started getting serious about it when my first child was born, almost 7 years ago. I don’t know was it so that I could capture great memorable photos of my daughter or so I would have an excuse to get out of the house for a while!
MY PHOTOGRAPHIC EQUIPTMENT
I shoot with a Pentax K-5ii DSLR and Pentax K-7 as a backup. A lot of people ask why a Pentax, or rather ask why not a Canon or Nikon? The answer, I suppose is because it got great reviews and I like the feel of it.
I also try to keep a compact on me/in the car for anything I stumble upon. I’d recommend that you always have a camera within reach if possible. As they say- “the best camera in the world is the one you have on you.”
LENSES & OTHERS
- Sigma 70-200 f2.8 Sports lens
- Tamron 18-55 f2.8 lens
- Pentax 100mm f2.8 1:1 macro lens
- Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens. This is great for low-light photography and blurred background photos (think portraits).
- I use a Slingshot AW 202 rucksack. It’s like a mini rucksack which can swing around to the front of your body very quickly without having to take it off. Highly recommended.
