There are a few perks to my job and no better way to spend a few hours than at a track day! I had a great afternoon at Weston Airport photographing the Home of quattro event. This 3 day bespoke event was superbly organised and managed by Pluto Communications and it was one of the best set designs I have seen, amazing what you can do in an aircraft hangar!
Guests took part in three different Audi Driving experiences and best for me was the spin around the track in the Audi RS6 when we got over 230 km/h or 140mph! Hopefully next job will be to go and pick up one of these myself!!
Here are a selection of images from The Mediators' Institute of Ireland two day conference in Drogheda which was addressed by President Michael D Higgins and organised by Abbey Conference & Corporate
During our trip to Ethiopia last year with Orbis Ireland we were accompanied for part of the journey by journalist Deirdre Donnelly. Below are a couple of the images I took after the run in Addis Ababa which are from the front page and a double page spread in the Irish language pullout 'Seachtain' in todays Irish Independent around the piece Deirdre has written. Unfortunately my Irish is not great so maybe someone can do a bit of a translation but no matter any coverage is great to increase the awareness.
I'm Mel and I'm a freelance photographer based in Dublin. I photograph all sorts of events throughout the country and further afield with a professional yet relaxed style.
