Mark Dalton Photography is based in Dublin, Ireland. Let me give you a little background as to how I got here. I am a self-taught photographer and have been working in the industry for 12 years. I started shooting photos when I moved to London at the age of 21. I was looking for something to do to occupy my mind on moving to a new city and not wanting to jump two feet in too fast – I popped down to my local camera shop in London and bought a GE Bridge camera for £100.
I quickly fell in love with going around the city taking photos. Photography is an expensive hobby or career to invest in and so after some time, when I knew that I wasn’t going to pack it in and get bored, I decided to invest in my first DSLR which was a Nikon D3300. More power and more flexibility led to more fun.
A year after purchasing my first DSLR I decided to sell it and upgrade to a Nikon D5300 (again it was more flexibility in the camera capability which led to more fun again). All the time I was buying new kit on the side from new bags to tripods, filters, lenses and of course learning the editing software tools from Lightroom to Photoshop. It is actually scary how easily photography can burn a hole in your wallet but I wanted to have the tools to progress and build out my craft as much as I could.
That eventually led me to a big camera upgrade when I decided to extend a loan I had for a car and invest in a commercial grade DSLR camera which is the main camera I use today and will continue to use for some time – Nikon D750. Now much of this will be lost on people, a camera is a camera right? Well for me, the evolution and the investment in gear over the years has led to an evolution in the final product.
With time I have grown and developed my work into a certain style, constantly learning and always looking to evolve. When we start out as photographers we start by experimenting in a range of different niches and styles. We find out what we like and what we don’t like. I’ll admit, it took me some time to understand what I really liked shooting. I jumped around quite a bit over the years and while that could be considered a waste of time bouncing from one niche to the other – it actually helped me to really flesh out my photography skills before focusing on one area.
Street, Architecture and interior photography has been the niche I have fallen in love working with the most. So whether you are looking to purchase a print for yourself or for someone as a gift. Whether you want to get those perfect shots for the clients home you are selling. Maybe you are launching a new B&B and want to have shots for your website or your social media which showcase the pride in what you have built to potential customers. Or you might be an interior designer looking for a photographer to get some shots for your work. No matter what your profession may be, with the internet being the first port of call for many customers these days – high quality professional images are vital to give you an edge.
