What Gareth's Clients Say

We started working with Gareth on a re-branding project which required sophisticated new photography to support the strategic direction we had established. Gareth’s expertise, and sensitivity to the subject matter became an invaluable addition to delivering the overall requirements. His understanding, expertise and great eye for composition delivered outstanding photography. Along the way we found his ability and willingness to go the extra mile delivered imagery we hadn’t anticipated, nor planned for but extremely well received and very much appreciated. The outstanding quality of his architectural photography - interior and exterior - are  testament to a passionate approach in his field, complemented by a great personality, patience and sense of humour. The perfect mix you want on location and under pressure. We have since completed a number of high profile projects very successfully and have no hesitation in recommending Gareth highly to any agency or individual in need of excellent photography at great value.
Kunnert Tierney Communication Design, Christian Kunnert ,Creative Director
I contacted Gareth on the recommendation of my architect after our clinic's renovations were completed in late 2017. We required practice architectural shots and staff portraitures to be used on our clinic's website and marketing material. I have to say, Gareth was fantastic throughout the entire process. A consummate professional, his friendly manner made us all feel at ease, and the end product was a selection of truly spectacular clinic images. Gareth's fee structure was explained clearly upfront, and the subsequent images were delivered promptly to my inbox. I would not hesitate in recommending Gareth to anyone looking for an architectural photographer of the highest caliber, no matter the commercial requirements.

Gareth has photographed all our projects for the last 3 years. His work is of the highest standard and he captures the essence of our projects perfectly. His commitment and interest in our buildings comes through in the photographs he takes, with the final selection of images telling the story of our work.

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.
Frank O'Sullivan, Managing Director, Shomera

Gareth is extremely reliable and accommodating (particularly when the pressure is on!) and takes great care to review the visual brief in advance to ensure all needs are met. Gareth consistently produces tasteful and considered images and we would not hesitate in recommending his services.”
HWBC, Emma Murphy, Director HWBC
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.

I have worked with Gareth Byrne Photography for in excess of six years. He produces excellent work and is very good at engaging with clients.
Patrick Lynch, House7 Architects
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
