Athlone Photography Club will hold an exciting discussion with award-winning sports/press photographer Eóin Noonan later this month, following the club’s recent successful relaunch.
The conference will take place at Abbey Road Artists Studio on Wednesday September 28 from 7:45 p.m.
The club is delighted to once again open its doors to welcome people in person and will share meetings with a host of world-class photographers throughout the year. The club also recently enjoyed club advanced member Sean Ganly who gave an insightful presentation of the scenery ahead of their outing on the pitch in Connemara the following Sunday.
Eóin was the club’s first external professional speaker on Zoom in 2020 during the country’s first lockdown. Eóin works with Sportsfile and over the years has been shortlisted by the Press Photographers Association of Ireland (PPAI) for the Sports Action and Non-Action categories, finally placing 1st in 2022. He won 1st place in the Sports Action section with a now famous hit, ‘HANDLE WITH CARE.’ The photo captured Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo in action against Republic of Ireland’s Shane Duffy during the FIFA World Cup 2022 Qualifier match between Republic of Ireland and Portugal at Aviva Stadium.
Eóin also won 1st place in the Sports Feature category for his picture titled “BRILLIANT BOHS”. He has since received a Special Merit Award at the 2022 World Sports Photography Awards with the same shot.
Eóin has captured some of the many dramatic moments in sport in Ireland and abroad. Skilled in photography, particularly sports photography, photojournalism and commercial photography and social media, Eóin will share his knowledge and advice for sports and action photography, covering lighting, speed, equipment, editing and configuration tools, and will share his first-hand experience from his time at sporting events around the world. The conference will end with a question and answer session that will be open to everyone to ask Eóin questions about his profession and his experiences.
The talented photographer’s work can be seen on sportsfile.com, where he is a personal photographer or under his social media profile @sportsfileeoin on Twitter and Instagram.
Athlone Photography Club was founded in 2013 by a number of local photography enthusiasts. The club started with around 30 members at the time and has since grown to over 50 members. The main objective of the club is to provide a learning environment for all members, regardless of their photographic skills, in a friendly and respectful environment.
