The New York Times
After graduating from the National College of Art and Design Deirdre moved to New York where she worked as a photographer with the New York Times for 7 years and I returned to live in Dublin in 2010. To work for The New York Times was an incredible learning experience. Deirdre’s years at The New York Times taught her how to work across all genres of photography and create artistic photographs in almost any situation.
Deirdre was accepted into the Redux Pictures agency in New York by Marcel Saba in 2000. Through Redux she has worked on some great stories in Ireland such as Conor Mc Gregor for the cover of Sports Illustrated, behind the scenes on the set of Penny Dreadful for The Hollywood Reporter. Redux syndicates her documentary stories throughout the world appearing in titles such as Time Magazine, The London Sunday Times, Marie Claire, Paris Match, American Photography, The Wall Street Journal and Stern to name a few. When Deirdre lived in New York she covered the US for French Marie Claire working on a range of stories across the US.
