Introducing me, Owen Franssen
Hello. Welcome to my website. I am Owen Franssen and I like to take photographs. I was born in the Netherlands but I’ve lived in Spain and Ireland for much of my life. I spent years in an office job, but have always had the urge to do something more creative.
Since taking up photography, first as a hobby and later professionally, some of my photos have been published in magazines like N-Photo, Digital SLR and Performance VW. I enjoy entering photographic competitions and have had some success; placing 2nd in a monthly competition organised by the SISLP, being shortlisted in Digital Photo magazine’s Annual Perfect Portrait competition and being awarded a merit by the Master Photographers Association in their annual awards.
As I am based near the beautiful National Park and lakes of Killarney I like to include these fantastic surrounds in my portrait photography. The forests and ruins in these parts make for great backdrops to your trash the dress or family photo sessions and will leave you with unique and memorable photographs to enjoy for a long time.
My goal, wether it be a cherish the dress photo shoot in your wedding dress or debs gown, an outdoor session with your partner and children or a portrait of your sporty teen in their uniform, is to create a memorable experience for you, the model. Posing for photographs is not the most comfortable for most people. By taking you out of the traditional studio and in to the outdoors it becomes much more natural and intuitive. I want to give you photographs that you can be proud of. Pictures that you will be showing off to your friends for years to come. And great memories to be reminded of every time you look see them.
