David and Michael Hegarty

The members at last Tuesday nights Group meeting were treated to two great talks as David and Michael Hegarty (no relation), took the floor.


David Hegarty is an amateur photographer based in Cork. Self taught, his photographic interests are wide, varying from Landscape to Events and most genres in between. His presentation was an eclectic mix of colour and gesture, heavily influenced by his close association with the artist community in Cork City. His images of new bands and DJs performing in Cork showed a great command of the use of flash while 'dragging the shutter' to mix in the ambient light and was an interesting insight into the nightlife of the city.

David's presentation was fresh and interesting and was very well received by the Group. We are delighted that he took the time to share his photography and knowledge with us and we look forward to working with him again. See David's Flickr Gallery here.

ECCG member, Michael Hegarty, had the difficult and unenviable job of following David with a short presentation of his own.


Though he rates himself as a beginner with little technical knowledge, his images betrayed a 'keen eye' for a photograph which, arguably, outweighs any technical 'know-how'.

Behind everyone of Michael's images was a story, a place and a reason why each one was taken. With images from Cork to the U.S., Europe and beyond, Michael's presentation was enjoyable and informative and rounded off the night on a high note. Well done Michael.
