Based in Dublin, JJ graduated from the National Film School of Ireland (IADT) in 2007 and has had a camera in his hand ever since.
Commercially JJ has worked with multiple production companies and creative agencies on broadcast and online campaigns. Clients include Ford, Lidl, Aldi, Vodafone, Irish Rail, RTE, Bulmers, Aer Lingus, Ryanair and many more.
JJ is best known for his work with director Dave Tynan. Together they have created multiple successful films. 'Just Saying' gained instant viral success and became a cultural touchpoint in 2012. 'Rockmount' which was awarded the Teirnan McBribe accolade at the Galway Film Fleadh, followed quickly by an IFTA in 2015 and "Heartbreak' which invited more viral attention and sparked intense cultural debate around women’s issues in Ireland in 2017. The film had people all over the country quoting Emmet Kirwan’s indelible rally cry for the nation to “stand in awe of all mná” and the work went on to credit the creative team with their second IFTA award.
Building on the creative relationship with Kirwan the pair have collaborated again for Tynan's debut feature, the much anticipated 'Dublin Oldschool' which completed photography in late 2017 and is due for national cinema release in the coming months.
When not shooting you can find JJ hanging out with his best (four legged) pal, Brun, who loves visiting set and flirting for treats.
