Hello. My name is Martin Sheerin. Until recent retirement, have spent my years working as a photographer in Ireland and the US. My work has appeared in The Irish Times, The Times of London, The New York Times, The Melbourne Age and a lot of newspapers and magazines in between.

LightUpMyPhotos.com was created when a friend kept phoning me asking how she could photograph this or photograph that or what gear she should use that so her photos could look better.

I began my career as a photographer on the Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland. The joy of capturing those dramatic black and white images led to a lifetime of satisfying work. There is something magic about making your interaction with a landscape permanent.

I found a different kind of excitement in my 20 years as a photographer for newspapers and magazines in Ireland and in the US. Over the past summers on Medicine Lake in Northern Wisconsin I have rekindled my love of landscape photography.

Hopefully LightUpMyPhotos.com will help you acquire the tools necessary to put your personal stamp on your photographs.
