29th Of April CCC Welcomes well known Professional Photographer Mr Julien Behal
April 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
One of the first pictures Julien remembers taking was of his grandad Bernard shaving. He took it as a teenager on a disposable film camera. It was his first picture to win an award, and it got him hooked. Sadly his grandad is no longer around but his picture is, and that is what he loves about photography.
Since then, he has covered the Olympics, World Cups, State Visits, conflicts, fashion, business mergers and music festivals. he has been to and shot almost everything, and he still has the same desire to get a great picture as he had 25 years ago.
Over the years he has collected many more awards, including over 20 category wins in the The Press Photographers Association of Ireland awards including the overall title of the PPAI Photographer of the Year in 2012 http://www.ppai.ie/awards/2012 and 2014 http://www.ppai.ie/awards/2014. He was included in the Culture Trip’s Top Ten Irish Photographers to watch https://theculturetrip.com/europe/ireland/articles/top-ten-irish-photographers-to-watch/
Over the years his pictures have regularly made the front of all the major national and International papers such as The Irish Times,Examiner and Irish Independent, The Guardian, Times London, New York Times,Sunday Times and, uniquely for an Irish photographer, the cover of Time Magazine.
Julien is from Kerry, lives in Dublin and have a fab family with a gorgeous wife and three beautiful kids. he loves running, climbing, chatting, fishing, eating good food and drinking good wine, he also drinks far too many take away coffees!
Oh by the way he has a cousin who lives in Leixlip Conor will join us later on in the evening to see he cousin in action..
