Our story

I'm Danny Maguire, the creator of White Shell Photography. My love for photography grew from my love of visual art, be it paintings, movies, fashion or architecture. I could've happily chose a career in any of these mediums but photography found me, and here I am. I graduated from University in 2016 with a BSc degree in Film technology. My degree focused heavily on the physics of light and the science behind how the camera actually works. Since graduating and embarking on my photography career, I have became obsessed with the biology of how humans see and read images. When I take a photograph, my sole aim becomes, retaining the viewers attention. This paired with my love for storytelling, creativity and the truth, helps ensure there's always a balance to my work.

From the moment I left university I was always going to be a photographer, so it was a matter of time before I created White Shell and subsequently opened our first studio.
