I have known the author, Milo Denison for some time now. He is a man of many talents, A quick witted Actor, script writer, photographer and author so when he asked me to shoot the cover for his book “An Expat’s Guide to Ireland: Life in a Second World Country” I knew the image would be something interesting. Milo wanted the picture to be dull, dreary and preferably raining. We both felt confident that in a country that rains so much this should be easy to achieve. So on one of the dullest days this year, raining and overcast we went to the location but as anyone who has lived here for any length of time will tell you the weather is very very unpredictable so by the time we got there the clouds has passed and the sky was blue and bright.
So the image you see on the cover was shot on a bright clear day and with the wonders of photoshop a different sky and a few rain drops were added and a dull and dreary day was made.
An Expat’s Guide to Ireland describes the experiences of the author who left the United States in order to build a new life in Ireland, including the necessary bureaucratic steps such as sorting out customs, work permit and the perils of apartment hunting in Dublin. Scattered throughout the book are anecdotes about the pitfalls of navigating Irish life as an expat, in between extensive useful information and tips and tricks for getting the most out of life in one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
