This is Gerry’s second Fellowship, his first being in illustrative photography, and his achievement is a first in this genre of photography. Gerry is also the only photographer in Ireland to receive a double Fellowship from the BIPP.

Gerry said “I have been working with my iPhone4 over the last two years. I first produced a book on Tuscany all taken on the iPhone, and as my expertise increased and I took more photographs I thought it would be wonderful to be able to do a panel of pictures all taken on an iPhone camera. I have always been keen to prove that you do not need the biggest and best megapixel camera you can buy to make great photographs”. He added “I am overwhelmed with how the panel of images have been received and the compliments from some of the people I admire most in our photographic profession”.
