Ulster Bank - Ireland Photography

During the months of August and September, I had the pleasure to work on an amazing project, which took me all over Ireland. The project was commissioned by Ulster Bank and CPN (Commercial Photographers Network, in the UK). The scope of the project was to create large panoramic images for all the Ulster Bank branches throughout the Republic of Ireland. Each branch was being refurbished, and new imagery was needed for each one. The images would be used on the Welcome Wall and around the ATM's in each of the branches. In total I covered 25 branches out of a total of approximately 50, with the remaining branches being covered by Irish photographers, Andrew Towe and Mike O'Dwyer.

The subject for the photos was loosely based on suggestions given to me by each individual bank branch, combined with my own interpretation of what would be suitable to shoot. A total of ten images had to be produced, and had to be very large in size (15000px x 28000px approx), which required shooting up to 27 individual images and later stitching them together to create each full size image. As well as the technical aspects, there was also the logistics and weather to contend with too, which made for a lot of planning prior to each location shoot. The locations I covered included: Dublin, Galway, Cork, Waterford, Wexford, Killarney, Tralee, Kilkenny, Port Laoise, Newbridge, Naas, Clonmel, Ennis, Limerick and Carlow.

So the next time you pop by your local Ulster Bank branch, be sure to check out the photography work on the walls.
