Barbara McCarthy


I am a writer, photographer and artist based in Dublin. I am available for fashion, photo-shoots, press photography, head-shots, weddings and other photography work in Ireland and abroad. Before I started photography I worked as a business and travel journalist for top publications including The Sunday Times and The Independent as well as many books and magazines. Now I am combining my passion for writing and photography and am currently working on a book in which I will include my own photos. I have had many photos published in Irish TV, newspapers and magazines. I have also had my photos used for CD covers and advertising campaigns. You can find my official website on and my wedding and family photos on my other website
