Miss Shining Light 2019 was held at the Waterfoot Hotel in Derry recently. As part of my work with Local Women Magazine I got some photos of the winners so we all met up at the Waterfoot Hotel again. This charity has raised thousands of pounds in recent years and it just seems to grow and grow. Long may this last. This pageant is about raising awareness and much needed funds for Mental Health.
A little about me. I’ve spent years helping people to find the perfect sole. In my shoe shop in the heart of Derry and now through my passion for photography
I get to photograph people with their soulmates! My daughter Bronagh and parents have always been and always will be a big part of my life. We have shared so many moments and enjoy looking at older photos and laughing together. Moments and the moments between moments during a wedding or a portrait session hold so much emotion. I love to capture images in a fun, natural and classic way. I’ve been passionate about photography for years, from the darkroom to my digital camera today, and storytelling is at the heart of what I do. I’m Gerard and I look forward to telling your story.
