Recently described by Time Magazine as one of Ireland's most exciting photographers to watch, Kieran's involvement in photography started as a teenager after quickly realising that he didn't possess the requisite skills to fulfill his chosen career as an artist. He then discovered the camera and his original aim was to produce work to hang on people's walls. After a reality check and the need to earn a living, in 1993 he managed to gain a foothold into the intoxicating world of photojournalism where he remained at the Reuters News Agency as a specialist photographer until resigning his staff position in 2008 to become a freelance again, having covered stories as diverse as the Iraq war, the Asian tsunami and the troubles in northern Ireland. Working for an international wire service afforded Kieran numerous awards, exhibitions in places such as New York's Time Square, Perpignan's Visa Pour L'Image and London's National Portrait Gallery and regular publications in magazines such as Time, Newsweek, Der Spiegel and National Geographic. In 2010 he was asked to produce a piece of stills time lapse work for the renowned cinematography team working on the BBC's groundbreaking series 'Human Planet'. This episode went on to win the Emmy award for 'Best Cinematography in a factual based programme'. From 2009-2011 Kieran chronicled the high street of the small market town of Wootton Bassett during the repatriations of British Service Personnel from the war in Afghanistan. In 2015 Kieran's unorthodox take on the Wimbledon Tennis Championships earned him a prestigious World Press Photo award. He continues to pursue and tell stories of human resilience.
