Thank you for visiting .
My name is Druimé. It’s Irish and is pronounced Drimay
Eighteen years ago I was given my first camera by my parents as I embarked on a round the world adventure with friends.
Since then I have rarely had a camera out of my hand. I have gone on to complete a Diploma in Professional Photography. However photography is an area where you never stop learning. As such I usually have my head stuck in Photography books or I attend short courses and workshops. I seem to spend all my money on pursing this passion.
My travels brought me from Ireland to Australia. Where I have been ever since. I have rested my feet upon the white sandy shore of the Indian Ocean in Perth Western Australia. I love the outdoors, camping and slow beach combing adventures along a windswept winter shoreline. I also like to photograph people enjoying the great outdoors.
I love nature, I love animals. However I also love people. My style is relaxed. I like family lifestyle and documentary photography.
I want to help you document your normal day.
I like to try and capture the real you. I don’t want lots of shots of you smiling at the camera I want the real shots. Those fleeting tender moments of connection between families and couples
I can give you some direction to help you relax in front of the camera. I know many of you do not like being in the spotlight but I want to make sure I bestow you with the attention you deserve.
I have learnt through my years of capturing memories which photographs will stand the test of time.
They are not the photos of pretty flowers or stunning mountain vistas.
The photographs we really want to have, to hold and to treasure are those of our loved ones.
The photographs of mothers holding their children, the pictures of tiny tender moments between busy parents. These are the images that can show your children how much they were loved.
A photograph to remind you of when your belly was swollen with brand new tender life.
A photograph of our treasured elders and the wisdom behind their eyes.
A photograph capturing tenderness between two new lovers.
Or simply a portrait of you. I know your future self will be grateful that you decided to be kind to yourself and preserve what you look like today.
I am always truly honoured when I am allowed to take your photograph.
So get in touch if you can see the value of documenting your fleeting days.
