Inspired by my image of the old lobster pots in Connemara I was intrigued by the idea of this old school fishing. Thankfully I was lucky enough to meet Tomas, a local lobster fisherman here in Barna. We took off to sea to create this story board. I chose black and white to capture the moody, wet and dull mornings which are common in the west of Ireland.
The Lobster sequence is the "Source" stage of our project.
Having gotten my taste for the sea with my Lobster shoot I wanted to get images of Oyster fishing. I met Jimmy from Maree Oysters Ltd and he was happy for me to accompany him in December when he will be catching Native Oysters. He invited me to visit the Oyster Bar in the Guinness tent at the Galway Races summer meet. I watched the behind the scenes prep, cooking and service and took this series of images.
