Welcome to doorusphoto.net.
My name is Andreas. I was born in East Germany in 1971, moved to Ireland in 2001, and have recently settled in Kinvara, which I love on account of its close proximity to the lunar landscape that is the Burren.
Photography has always interested me, and around 2005 I started to take it more seriously.
Like many people, I started with landscape photography, which is something I still love to do, but recently I have developed a keen interest in portrait and documentary photography.
I enjoy black and white photography as it allows one to focus on the elements of strong composition as well as being rather atmospheric. Bright, vibrant colours can distract from elements in a photograph that are poor but with black and white there is nowhere to hide; the picture is either of a high standard or it is not.
My pictures have been published in The Clare Champion, The Clare People, The Irish Farmers Journal, The Guide to the Wild Atlantic Way, and on several websites. I've shot the album cover for Irish musician Fia Rua's album, The Sky Went Low And The Sea Went High, as well as promotional images for his tour booklet.
