What Gareth's Clients Say

We have worked with Gareth Byrne for over a decade and there are a number of reasons for this. Apart from his mastery of the profession, he captures the specific brief very quickly and has a very winsome way with clients. He will do whatever is necessary to ensure the best outcome for the project he is photographing on our behalf. Gareth always enhances our work.

Catherine Logan, The Johnstown Estate
Gareth carries out photography projects for us on a regular basis. He is an excellent communicator and is always obliging to work within your timescales . Gareth understands property photography very well and always takes excellent, versatile photos. We trust Gareth to understand a project immediately and capture buildings in their best light.
Fiona Kennedy, Director, CBRE
I have worked with Gareth over the past 15 years. He is a technically and artistically gifted photographer. Gareth will wait until late in the evening, if he thinks he will shoot something more interesting with artificial lights.He can identify an interesting angle of an interior in minutes. I like that Gareth brings an architectural element to how he represents my work, as it is an important element for me. Gareth is equally competent at shooting vignettes or taking close shots of textures if needed. He is a trusted colleague and has always added to the work that we do.

HWBC, Emma Murphy
We have been working with Gareth for approx. 5 years and would recommend Gareth completely, his eye for detail and an unique shot is excellent and at the same time will listen to his client and take on board their thoughts and wishes. Excellent photographer and a nice chap as well.
Stephen Belton, Garryvoe and Bayview Hotels
We have worked with Gareth on numerous projects and images captured were excellent, showed the best of our cabinetry and joinery work with shots we hadn't forseen. He also had huge respect for our clients and home owners which was paramount for us, working to timelines that suited them and leaving the home exactly as it was presented to us for the shoot. We would highly recommend Gareth for domestic or commercial work and will collaborate again in the future
