My interests are eclectic. My passions are photography and history. This website is primarily for my photography, with an occasional nod towards my writing and history interests.

2014 - Awarded the distinction of Fellowship by the Irish Photographic Federation (FIPF).

2016 - Awarded the distinction of Excellence (EFIAP) by the International Federation of Art Photography (Federation Internationale de l'Art Photographique).

2017 - Made an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS).

2017 - Awarded the distinction of EFIAP Bronze (EFIAP/b).

2017 - Distinction of Proficiency from the Photographic Society of America (PPSA).

2018 - Distinction of Excellence from the Photographic Society of America (EPSA).


1999 - Conferred with a Master of Arts (Hons) Degree in History by the National University of Ireland, Cork. I'm the author of a dozen books (mostly on historical topics) and have edited several others. My research interests include 19th and early 20th century Ireland, especially the Landed Ascendancy and politics; the Napoleonic Wars; the two World Wars, particularly as they relate to Irish involvements.

I have a university certificate in Irish archaeology and am a qualified tour guide. I give talks on a wide variety of history and photography topics. One of my minor claims to fame is that I was interviewed for the Russian newspaper 'Pravda' in 1990 (it was at that time the biggest newspaper in the world).

A few short pieces of my writing and lectures can be read under 'Bill's Blog'.
