Castleisland Camera Club Feature Five: Sharon Mowat Driscoll

In the fifth of our featured photographers from Castleisland Camera Club we publish the work of Co. Clare native, Sharon Mowat Driscoll.

Sharon is married to a Kerry man and is now living near Abbeyfeale in Co. Limerick and is a retail assistant with Tesco Ireland and the following is her biography.

“I heard of Castleisland Camera Club through a friend and it inspired me to join a group that would have the same common interest and passion in photography as myself.

Club Membership Benefits

The benefits of joining Castleisland Camera Club I feel is the social aspect of the club.

I have met new people with whom I feel comfortable and this allows us the opportunity to explore the love of photography that we share. This is encouraged and supported by all in the club.

There are regular field trips which are designed to hone our skills, any of which I attended proved to be fun, beneficial and fulfilling.

Types of Photography

My favourite types of photography are landscape, seascapes and general photography but I will throw my cap into anything really that will get the creative mind going.

I was introduced to the stunning Kerry county ten years ago by my husband and have fallen in love with the fantastic natural scenery that it offers’

Scenery from Ballybunion beach to the wonderful coastline of Dingle has all fed my photography passion.

My goal on my photography journey is to push myself further and gain more experience with a view to using my creative side supported by peers in the camera club.”

Featured in Order

The photographers are being featured in the order in which they sent in their images and biographies for inclusion here.
