Crispin Rodwell is a Dublin-based photographer with a career spanning more than three decades. With a background in photojournalism, he now specialises in public relations, commercial, corporate and event photography. The diverse nature of his photography is reflected in a very varied portfolio.
Locations range from the highways and byways of Ireland to the conflict-stricken streets of Gaza and his native Belfast, from the icy expanse of Alaska to sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America. Portraits of actors and singers sit alongside those of the captains of business and industry.
Crispin’s work has taken him to all corners of the World during his thirty-something-year career, half of which was for the Sunday Times (London), and five years as Reuters’ photographer in Ireland. Never far from the winners podium he has amassed a haul of awards which include Irish Press Photographer of the Year, five-time Northern Ireland Press Photographer of the Year and Nikon UK Regional Photographer of the Year.
From rucks to books, Gordon Darcy may have hung up his boots, but he’s picked up his pen! The Grand Slam winner has teamed up with one of Ireland’s best known writers Paul Howard to write a children’s book.
