Sometimes, reading fashion magazines (mostly international, I’ll admit) and watching US television shows and documentaries makes one forget all about the talent that we have here in Ireland – talent that, in certain artistic fields, just doesn’t get the chance to shine the way it might in the US or even in the UK. With that in mind, here’s the first of a monthly photographer spotlight.

Sarah Kavanagh is the lead designer with Irish online PR and social media agency Simply Zesty, and she photoblogs. Here’s just a selection of her work, available for perusal on her website:

There’s something about Sarah’s photography that reminds me of Garance – that easy, observational tone, perhaps, or the way the colours are bright without being too “sharp”. Of course, I’d love to see her give fashion photography a go; I might even attempt to bully her into doing a bit of a street style shoot with me some day, so watch this space . . .
