Always shoot at top quality…

You never know where your photo will end up. A few weeks back, I got a call one day from Carmel Mannion at Jump The Moon PR asking me if I had a photo of the name plaque on Pieta House. I did actually have such a photo, and vaguely remembered shooting the front of the Centre in Lucan several years back. I was sitting at my computer, and while I was being told the reason for the request, was firing up Lightroom and using Pieta House as a keyword, managed to locate the shots.

Now they were taken 4 years ago, and for no more than general photos for possible use in internal website publicity. But I always shoot in RAW and at the highest possible resolution, because of just this type of situation. The requirement was for a hi resolution image suitable for use on the iTunes icon for the Aslan single in aid of Pieta House, “Catch Your Fall”. I pulled a few together – I had actually shot a set of exposure bracketed images, and the one below was selected – great to be able to be a tiny part of this great awareness and fundraiser for a charity I have supported for many years now.

You can download the single from iTunes at please do, it's only €1.29.

Pieta House is Ireland's only completely free professional service aimed at the prevention of suicide and self-harm. For more details check out or call 01 601 0000.
