Born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. I have been lucky enough to make a career from my photography, film and art.
My documentary work includes ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, Gavin Friday’ (2010) and ‘Ghost Blues – The Rory Gallagher Story’ (2010) with contributions from giants of music including Edge and Bono of U2, Johnny Marr, Slash and Bob Geldof.
My 2003 debut documentary ‘Darkroom’ about my late brother, the fine art photographer Harry Thuillier Jnr, won best documentary at the Boston Irish Film Festival and he was nominated for an IFTA award for Best New Talent.
My short film called ‘DRIVEN’ was selected for the Cork Independent Film Festival, IndieLisboa 2014 and Glasgow Short Film Festival. ‘DRIVEN’ also won an Honourable Mention Award at the 2014 International Berlin Film Festival.
In 2015 I was selected from over 100,000 photographers worldwide for the final ten photographers in the Sony World Photography Awards.
I spent 7 months in Asia which resulted in the highly acclaimed photographic exhibition in Dublin called ‘VIETNAM 40’ – a celebration of Vietnam’s landscapes and people forty years after the end of the Vietnam War. I also released a book of the same title.
In 2016 I was invited to exhibit ‘Vietnam 40’ in Vietnam by Culture Ireland and the Irish Embassy. While travelling throughout Vietnam in 2016, I captured many images of Vietnamese street life, from villages and towns throughout the country, which would contribute to my third photographic book called ‘Vietnam LIFE’.
I spent much of 2017 & 2018 travelling the globe photographing the Formula 1 World Championships while producing a book called ‘The Art of Speed’ with contributions from past and present drivers.
For the last year amid the global pandemic, life slowed down a little and I have been concentrating on more personal work including large-scale paintings for an exhibition somewhere in the future, while also concentrating on creative and food photography.
I spend my time between Montreal and Dublin
Past clients include – BMW, PUMA, FORMULA 1, ASTON MARTIN, INTERPROTECCION, DFA IRELAND
I think every artist must question their place in the world, as a photographer, painter, filmmaker, artist, creative. But never stopping to find out. Stay curious.
