Ciarán’s photography is focused on the landscapes of Sligo, Galway and the West of Ireland. His aim is to capture these stunning landscapes at their very best and where possible from an off the beaten track vantage point.
"I started using DigiCreatiV for all my photo and canvas printing last year and my only regret is that is that I didn’t make the move sooner. The quality of the prints is excellent and you can’t beat the personal touch – each print is proofed to make sure its perfect. For me DigiCreatiV ticks all the boxes; quality, professionalism, reliability, speed, and price. To be able to get all that here locally in Sligo is fantastic. If you want to work with a printer who cares as much about the output of your work as you do use DigiCreatiV" - Ciaran Mc Hugh Photographer
Lola studied at the Limerick School of Art & Design and graduated at the top of her class with a first class honors degree. Her style is quite distinctive; it has a painterly yet childlike quality with a sensitivity to aesthetics. Her work is predominantly white on white palette, but she also uses a mix of muted pastel colors and more recently, splashes of bright neons. She tries to keep her pieces light and fresh. She likes to create a delicate balance between linear/mark-making and denser, more built-up areas of paint. She loves to work with glazes and also employ a scumbling technique to most of her pieces. This overlays a light color on the darker areas, which results in a hazy, opalescent feel. She works with both oils and acrylic and loves the depth and quality of oil, the layers and the glazes, but equally loves the instancy of acrylics.
"Dawn looks after all my Giclee printing needs on a daily basis. She is always professional, courteous and efficient. She is great to deal with, nothing is a problem for her, no job is too big or too small. As an artist, I need Giclee prints of a very high quality and to a very high standard and Dawn not only meets those requirements but surpasses them with her equipment ,expertise and her knowledge of the printing business. The prints I get done are a very large format and on beautiful grade fine art paper. They are shipped throughout the world and I regularly get compliments from my clients regarding my prints. Dawn provides a next day on demand delivery service, which makes the running of the print side of my business seamless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dawn to anyone." - Lola Donoghue Painter and Illustrator

Being from the Rockies, Christian has grown up around amazing landscapes. But moving to Ireland, when he was young, sprouted his love for photography. Using a small hand-me-down film camera, from his mum at 8, lit a spark with his first photo. However it was only when he turned 19 and started playing around with film that he really got stuck in. Christian has a very Photojournalistic approach from the years of travelling with surfers and lifestyle companies, true emotions are captured, and it's what he always prides his work on. Photographer, Engineer, Adventurer, Lifeguard, Traveller.... Lots of things, but wanting to share all of this is what he really wants to do... Having travelled around the world and having published work in multiple magazines on every continent.... he has found his passion.
"Having worked with Dawn on various projects, exhibitions and personal photography prints, I dont think I could trust anyone more with my prints. From the speed of print, to the quality and handling of the prints, nothing is below excellent" - Christian McLeod Photographer

Conor Doherty (CONDOH Photography) is a Landscape, Commercial, Event & Wedding photographer based out of Sligo, Ireland. Creating Images is his passion and has been for as long as he can remember; his photography work is inspired by the culture, music, arts, and the stunning landscape of Sligo and the west of Ireland. When he finished my studies in Dublin, he moved back home to Sligo and felt compelled to explore the countryside, this time capturing his adventures through the lens. That is where photography really started for him and was the beginning of his first photographic project ‘My Sligo’, a project that won’t end as long as he is living in the beautiful county of Sligo. In 2012 he won Sony Ireland’s ‘Week in Images’ 2012 Photography Competition and was lucky enough to attended the Sony World Photography Awards in London. Recently he exhibited his work of Sligo as part of an exhibition at the Halle St Gery, Brussels, Belguim. This was part of The Irish in Europe Photo & Art Exhibition 2014 to promote County Sligo in Europe.
"Having used and tested many photography printers both nationally and in the UK, Dawn at Digicreativ is now my go-to printer for all my work. The service is always top-notch, print quality is excellent and Dawn herself is a lovely person to deal with. Recently Dawn created beautiful prints of my work that went on to be exhibited in Brussels at the Halle St Gery Cultural Center. I wouldn't go to anyone else for such important printing tasks and I can't recommend Digicreativ's services highly enough." - Conor Doherty Photographer

"Dawn at DigiCreativ in Sligo provides a really great service to the artist. I work predominantly in the print medium, and her advice has been invaluable. The fact that she specialises in art prints sets her a long way apart from the run-of-the-mill commercial printers I used to have to rely on. She has a detailed and in-depth knowledge of a wide variety of high-quality papers, and so anything printed by DigiCreativ is 'gallery-ready'. Also the service is very prompt, and because I work in a digital format I can email my work directly to her print studio rather than having to physically send it. In short, I couldn't recommend DigiCreativ highly enough: Excellent Service, Excellent Product, Excellent Price." - Tom Mullery Artist
