a fond farewell


It is with a considerable mix of emotions that I write this. At 12 years old, I remember the first photography seminar I attended with my father which inspired me to capture my very first portrait – using my bedside lamp to mimic Rembrandt lighting, I took a less than flattering image of my little sister! A passion for portrait photography took root in me though, and I immersed myself in the art of capturing people. My father, also a photographer, encouraged me to experiment and gave me the freedom to make mistakes.

One of my proudest moments was winning European Portrait Photographer of the Year, which in turn kicked off my International speaking career. Now, after 2 generations of photographers and a business Est. 1981, the time is right for me to say an emotive farewell to the Deasy Photographic chapter of my life and embrace new opportunities. I am both excited and sad. I have huge gratitude in my heart for the many loyal clients that I captured over the years, whose openness and interaction were my greatest rewards.

To produce a beautiful and meaningful portrait requires so much more than the press of a button – my clients taught me this by sharing with me both the joy and the vulnerability of their precious moments, their families & their emotions. Photography as a career gifted me with the opportunity to be creative, to think outside the box and to interact with people every single day. I hope that my portraits are enjoyed in homes and businesses for many generations. I hope that my portraits will evoke memories and sentiment for years to come and I thank all of my clients for allowing me access to those precious moments of their lives.

We will be closing the studio at the end of July 2017 and will honor all of our in-date gift vouchers. We will endeavor to meet our existing clients’ needs but will not be taking on any new clients.

Kind Regards

Padraic Deasy
