ABOUT US

As one of Ireland’s most trusted photography companies, Fennell Photography has been capturing life as it happens for almost 50 years.

We work with state bodies, corporate companies, PR firms and agencies to help them tell their story. 

Our end product has always been to the highest standard but we’re now also able to deliver it in real-time for use online. With so much experience, our team can be relied upon as a trusted partner for events, product launches, communications, etc., both when it comes to putting our clients at ease and offering advice on how to maximise the visual potential of their project.

OUR APPROACH

We pride ourselves on a unique client management process that is made possible by our team’s wide range of expertise.

 

Throughout any project, our dedicated account management staff ensure first class client service and attention to detail. By taking the time to understand the needs and ambitions of each project from a client’s perspective, it helps us to deliver the best possible results; hence we place so much emphasis on the expertise of our specialised account management team. From location services and styling, right through to editing and publishing, their knowledge and approachability ensures the best possible experience for our clients. 

This, coupled with the skill and creativity of our photography and videography team, gives us our reputation as the most trusted in the business.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY

Many thanks to Chris and the team for the great work and flexibility on our project to capture grid imagery and video around the country last year and for the great work on our Annual Report. The team at Fennell are consummate professionals, always going the extra mile to make sure the client is happy and the work is top quality. And they are always at the end of the phone to answer any queries.

EirGrid, Digital Communications Department 

 

"I really appreciated the reach-out from Mary at Fennell Photography as we headed into lockdown last March. With the necessity to pivot our usual schedule of in-person events online, it was wonderful to know that professional support and advice was there for the photography that we undertook. This time was one of uncertainty for everyone in our business and it is heartening to be able to seek and get advice from professionals. Professionals that you have trusted for many (many!) years and know you can trust implicitly!" 

Mary Staunton, Communications Manager, UCD

 

 

“Our team has worked with Fennell Photography for a number of years and hugely value the enthusiasm, high energy and positivity they bring to every job. They have an ability to remain calm under pressure while being adaptable and flexible to meet the changing needs of a project. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to meet any photography brief.” 

 

Gemma Smyth, Managing Director, &Smyth 

 

 

 “I want to acknowledge Mary and all the team at Fennell Photography for their outstanding professionalism and quality of work over the years. At SuperValu, as part of our revamp process across our network of stores, we wanted to hero our staff instore more.  We rolled out professional photography with a food style and installed these images on boards across the different hallmarks in our revamped stores. When we initially approached Mary with this brief, she grabbed in with both hands and I have to say it has been such a seamless process. Mary’s dedication, hard work & organisation allowed this project to flow without any issues. The retail store environment can be a busy one but the way the photo shoots were scheduled by Mary and styled by the individual photographers allowed for an efficient and uncomplicated day. Retailer feedback to ourselves regarding these shoots and the finished images was hugely positive and that is a testament to the team.”
