Matt O'Donovan is a landscape photographer based in the stunning coastal town of Kinsale. He is self taught but learned about colour and composition through painting from a young age.
"I grew up in Innishannon - a small village in West Cork. We used to go on family days out to Kinsale. It's my father's hometown. I have vivid memories of going to see some family, going fishing and getting a bag of chips on the way home. Kinsale has always been a very special place to me. Having lived abroad for a few years, I'm now based there. And it's in Kinsale I find my inspiration: the colourful streets and harbour as well as West Cork's incredible landscape. I'm always drawn to lighthouses, little fishing villages and old rustic buildings, both in Ireland and overseas. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy making it."
Matt's work is displayed in his family's shop: Boland Gifts in Kinsale, Co. Cork.
