About Ed Mooney Photography

I first experienced the photography bug in 2009. Eventually after becoming the proud owner of a Nikon SLR, I became hooked and haven’t looked back since. It would be a rare occasion to find me without a camera nearby.. I use a combination of traditional SLR’s , Go Pro’s & my trusty  Huawei P20 Pro with Lecia triple  lense. Over the last few years I have been busy honing my craft. What began as looking for something interesting to shoot, has developed into ‘Bit of a Monster‘.
I now mainly concentrate on combining my passion for photography with a deep interest in History, Old Ruins, Folklore & Mythology. Much of my free time is now spent travelling around the Irish countryside in search of his next Adventure, which I fondly refer to as ‘Ruin-hunting‘.
‘I have always had a deep interest in the fascinating history and lore associated with Ireland, sometimes sprinkled with a pinch of the arcane for good measure. With much of my current work I get a chance to merge these interests into my images.
When I explore many of these ancient sites, I feel like I am entering another realm. The Realm of the Past so to speak.’  
I see my work as a merging of three separate Realms. Past, Present & Future. The exploration or Ruin-hunting represents the past. After researching these places & writing blogs which make the sites relevant, leading my work into the Present. The combination of everything then gets published on line thus preserving it in the future.

For those interested in visiting these historic sites, I have created an ‘Interactive Ruin Map‘, to assist you in finding these, sometimes hidden places. You can view Image Archives via my Website. Or you can read more about my Ruin-hunting via the Photo-Blog.

All The Best,

Ed

  10. Tank you for stopping by my blog – I’ve been enjoying yours. The pictures of the ruins are great – wish I had spent more time visiting sites like those when I lived in Ireland. My son wants us to move back, so maybe one day! Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

    Thanks for stopping by. My husband and I are hoping to get back to Ireland this summer to meet up with my son, who is presently in the Netherlands. He’s never met the Irish side of the family so we thought we’d make a holiday of it.

  17. Edward, Glad you enjoyed the shot of my pet butterfly. I’m going to have fun going through your blog. I’ll get to see all of the ruins I didn’t get to visit because my one said it was either too far, dark, wet or dirty …

  24. Thanks for popping by and visiting my blog, to be honest I really have no idea what I am doing so I guess it might look a little disorganised, unlike yours which is so neat and tidy and quite beautiful.
    Your photography is amazing too, youcertainly have the eye for a good shot, did you see my lunar eclipse photo’s, it was so big and bright last night and I couldn’t resist taking a few shots.
