Hello and welcome to Budgie Photo.
From 1998 to 2001, I completed a National Diploma in Graphic Design in Communications in Letterkenny Institute of Technology.
From there I went on to study a Post Grad Diploma in Website Development and Design in The Fitzwilliam Institute.
Whilst working full time I studied an Honours Degree in Marketing in Dublin Business School from 2006 to 2010 and went on to study a Masters of Science in Creative Digital Media with Dublin Institute of Technology.
Photography always played a part in studies, my professional life and hobbies. After taking a month out in 2016 to fundraise for The Mater Foundation, I hiked over 800km on the Camino del Norte and Camino Primitivo in the Basque Country and Northern Spain.
I learned many life lessons on the Camino, one of which was the importance to slow down and focus.

“I’m passionate about hiking, the outdoors, nature, mindfulness and finding a positive thought in all situations. I will try and communicate this passion through my photography whilst offering a quality and bespoke photography, printing and framing service.” (Cian Burgess)
