Hello and welcome to Budgie Photo.
From 1998 to 2001, I completed a National Diploma in Graphic Design in Communications in Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
From there I went on to study a Post Grad Diploma in Website Development and Design in The Fitzwilliam Institute.
Whilst working full time I studied an Honours Degree in Marketing with Dublin Business School from 2006 to 2010 and went on to study a Masters of Science in Creative Digital Media with Dublin Institute of Technology.
Photography always played a part in studies, my professional life and hobbies. After taking a month out in 2016 to fundraise for The Mater Foundation, I hiked over 800km on the Camino del Norte and Camino Primitivo in the Basque Country and Northern Spain.
I learned many life lessons on the Camino, one of which was the importance to slow down and focus (pun intended!).
“The things you are passionate about are not random, they are your calling”Fabienne Fredrickson
“I’m passionate about sport, hiking, nature and mindfulness. It’s important to regularly slow down, for when we slow down we see more, a bigger picture. With my camera, my goal is bring those those experiences to life. I look forward to the powerful and positive journey that the road ahead has to offer, a journey full of ups and downs, beauty, colour and life.” (Cian Burgess)
