I am the author of two books on lighthouses

An Eagle's View of Irish Lighthouses Ireland's Lighthouses
My first was 'An Eagle's View of Irish Lighthouses' launched at the Maritime Museum in Dún Laoghaire. Designed to be rolled up and put in your pocket when you are out looking for the lighthouses. My second 'Ireland's Lighthouses A Photo Essay by John Eagle is more a coffee table book. It was launched in the Kinsale Bookshop July 2010. Both books were launched by my good friend Tom MacSweeney the Maritime Correspondent. Copies of both books are available from my website, signed by me if you wish. To purchase them please click here
Bord Gais
The pictures for June and July in the above Bord Gáis calendar were taken by me
I have also made a postcard of every major lighthouse on the Irish coast, and the set of 99 includes smaller lighthouses and a lightship
Mizen Head Mizen
Beara Oil
The Beara Oil calendar for 2011. I have supplied Beara Oil with a picture for their calendar for last few years. I am especially pleased with this one as it shows my collie Shara and Quisha resting up. As they are both in doggie heaven it is lovely to see them remembered

My work appears in brochures like the beautifully produced brochure for the Olde Bakery Restaurant. I supplied all the scenic shots and the interior ones. A great place to have a meal

My work has be seen advertising Beara on the MV Julia the Swansea to Cork car ferry. Also promoting hotels, B&Bs, if you look at most of the pictures were taken by me. You will also see my work in the Irish Landmark Trust brochures:

the one they use of Galley Head lighthouse for example.


I use top of the range Canon cameras, 21.1 and 12.8 mega pixels with non digital cameras as back up for legal matters which require the use of film


Aerial, landscape and interior photography. I also take pictures of Confirmation, Christenings and Family Groups. Taking pictures of houses, both inside and out for holiday companies, business card use, and brochures. I have 30 years experience with cameras. I know what a good print looks like and go the extra mile to make sure my work is printed to perfection. I do not accept excuses, my work is perfect first time or it doesn't go out to the customers. I give digital slide presentations of my work.


I have photographed every lighthouse on the Irish coastline. I was the first person to make a postcard of every lighthouse on the Irish coastline. Many were aerial shots. I also published a book on Irish lighthouses. I made my own website and relish in the fact that in Google searches I am found in the first six on a regular basis. One of my pictures was used on a postage stamp. My photographs have been used for numerous calendars, including The Commissioners of Irish Lights and local businesses.
