Orla grew up around the old printing presses; sitting in on editorial meetings with her father and hanging around the newsroom waiting for him to finish work. Her love of photography developed in secondary school and in college when she tailed Irish Times and Irish Independent photographers, while completing a BA in Visual Communications. Her background has given her a deep understanding of how national newspapers work including meeting tight deadlines and knowing the images editors are looking for.
Orla’s career spans 21 years and has seen her work with corporates, semi-states, start-ups and charities as well as with most government departments and at Áras an Uachtaráin. Affable yet highly-professional, Orla is well known for being able to put her subjects — no matter how high-profile — at ease with her friendly demeanour.
Orla established her own business in 2007, merging with Shane’s in 2016. She is highly experienced in co-ordinating groups of photographers at events and on large contracts. Her areas of expertise include press and public relations, corporate, portrait and conference/event photography.
