Experience in Photography


  John Ironside has worked as a professional photographer for the past twenty four years in the commercial and industrial sectors. He also earned a reputation for his portrait photography as well as flora and landscape work.  

Based in Wexford, Ireland, his work took him on many commercial assignments, not only in Ireland but overseas as well. His particular interest in nature and the environment brought him to remote and exciting regions such as the Caribbean, South America, Africa and the Balkans.

An expedition 3500 miles up the Amazon River into the heart of the jungles of Peru and southern Colombia and another into the mountains of southern Albania had a huge effect on him and changed his life forever. 

Travel Industry Experience
Quest Beyond Ltd 
  Almost a year in Africa researching his holiday company idea gave him a great insight into this wild and beautiful continent and through his company, Quest Beyond Ltd (a quest beyond your imagination), he plans holidays and adventures for his clients, sharing these dreams and experiences with them. Although still very much involved with photography, this new venture has allowed his work to bring adults and children alike into environments that will nurture experience and broaden the horizons of the imagination.

Recognition    John’s work has been recognised with exhibitions not only in Ireland, but in London, Paris and the USA as well. His work has been published in many magazines and the media and has a number of awards to his name.
