Stephen and Deanna – Burning Man 2014


I love Burning Man. I love the atmosphere, the art, the insane weather but mostly I love the people. I had the honour to shoot Stephen and Deanna's handfasting ceremony on my last visit in 2014. We know each other through Burning Man connections from our sweet green isle. Great people, great atmosphere .. and wedding photography with a really nice twist. You can't beat a fire spitting dragon to set the tone. Hope you enjoy and special thanks to these kind folks.. 001 002 003 004 005 006 007 008 009 010 011 012 013 014 015 016 017 018 019 020 021 022 023 024 025 026 027 028 029 030 031 032 033  

Happy Easter from ExploreLight Photography!


Hi folks, hope you all had a very "Good Friday" and are enjoying whatever plans you have for the Easter long weekend. Some of you may be taking a week or two off around this time, if so.. hope you have a great break and take lots of great photographs of your holidays at home or abroad! Gale Force This image was created by ExploreLight photographer Peter Gordon a few years back. Even though he has captured a Wicklow bog in it's full Autumn colour, it reminds me of Easter .. I think it's the pinky purple tones in the sky behind the gold on the grass that is giving me a craving for an Easter egg! He took this on his old Pantax 67 Velvia. This limited edition print is available to purchase in a range of sizes and finishes. Check out our gallery to see more beautiful landscape photographs by Peter and Ed Gordon.
