Currently around 2150 of these relate to the events and personalities involved in the N Ireland Troubles.

Just click Photoshelter and it will take you to my online archive.

If you wish to limit your viewing to images relating to the Troubles  click here!  This gallery includes fairly comprehensive coverage of the early years of the Troubles and most of the principal personalities involved.  It includes Pacemaker Press images up to the end of September 1977 when I relinquished my sole ownership of the agency now trading as Pacemaker Press International Ltd. 

Click here to sign up to a FREE Photo Buyer account at Photoshelter and you can download low resolution images at any time!  If you are likely to require full resolution images urgently, i.e. for Press or TV use, I can configure Photoshelter to allow this. Downloaded images are NOT visibly watermarked. A site log maintains records  (what, when & by whom) of all downloads. Downloading is fairly simple but if you experience any difficulty I will be happy to talk you through the process. Please remember I am on UK/Ireland time!

When searching for images use keywords i.e. explosion & york street & belfast. For more focused searches use the ampersand between keywords. If you don't find what you are looking for widen the search by removing  or replacing one or more keywords. Carefully chosen keywords will usually help you find a selection of images in just seconds, just like Google. A cost only occurs on usage. Where possible it is best to negotiate a licence fee before publication. Phone or email me details of intended use and I will respond promptly. 

My archive also includes thousands of portraits of N. Ireland, Rep. of Ireland and British political personalities, broadcasters, authors, clerics, business people, rugby players, footballers, golfers, snooker players, diplomats, civil servants, academics, etc, along with thousands of images of Irish, British, European and American locations.

IMPORTANT: Each week more images are added. At the moment the archive is only a fraction of what it will be in 6 months or a year's time. If you can't find what you are looking for phone or email your requirements. If I can't help I will do my best to put you in touch with someone who can.
