Ian Mitchinson

We're big fans of cold water surf photography and we'll be using this page to show previews of our favourite work ahead of the festival in Dublin.  Tune in for regular updates of the best work from around Ireland and further afield. 

First up is Ian Mitchinson. Sligo-based to take advantage of the best breaks, Ian is a professional photographer that has been capturing big wave chargers to landscape to everything in between. He has shared some recent work with us. Check out his mind blowing shots in fullscreen in the gallery section. You can see all of Ian's portfolio and buy prints on his website www.ianmitchinson.com

I love to surf...if I’m not editing, shooting, or spending time with my family, then I’m in the water.
