Liam McClean is a photographer from Northern Ireland that specializes in landscapes and nature photos from his local area. As you’ll see in his photos showcased here, there is plenty of natural beauty in the area! I had the opportunity to interview Liam about his work, and I think you’ll enjoy the interview. As he mentions in his response to the first question, he’s only been pursuing photography for a few years. If you’re still relatively new to photography Liam’s progress should serve as inspiration and motivation.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started in photography.
I am 48 and married with 3 kids and live in Omagh, Co Tyrone, Northern Ireland. I got interested in photography 4 or 5 years ago, when my sister (who is an Arts Lecturer and much more knowledgeable about these things), mentioned to me one day that one or two of my photos were quite good and that maybe I should pursue it a bit. So as I had some time to spare due to a back injury, I gradually learned as much as I could about photography, landscape photography in particular.
