Testimonials

Catherine, Co. Cavan - "I love Ruth's eye and the compositions of her work - she has a way of photographing a new view of something every day, making it extraordinary! I got two framed and two unframed prints from her, the quality of the paper is excellent. The framed items came in simple black frames which were good quality, and complimented the photos perfectly. Very happy with my collection - visitors to our house always comment on them!"

John Butler (Ceol Pipes) - "A San Francisco based on-line magazine decided to write an article about uilleann pipemaking, and I was featured in it. I was extremely fortunate to have Ruth Carden visit me at my home and workshop in Achill Island to do the photography and videography for the article. Organising the visit was easy as Ruth was flexible regarding my schedule. She arrived on time and set about her work professionally and was very organised. She made me feel completely comfortable and as a result every video clip was captured in a single take. And the results of her photography speak for themselves in the article, capturing both the fine detail of my pipes and the expansive beauty of Achill. I'm delighted with the results and would highly recommend Ruth as a professional photographer".

Todd Oppenheimer, Executive Director, The Craftsmanship Initiative - "We couldn’t have been more pleased with Ruth’s work for our latest article in Craftsmanship Quarterly. Not only is Ruth's photography exemplary, but she was cooperative and eager to help on every front. Her portrait work in particular is so good (reminding me, in fact, of the work done by the great Annie Liebowitz) that we broke our normal style of only using un-posed shots, and ran one of her portraits to lead our story. All in all, anyone who works with Ruth will be very lucky to have her."

Celine, Co. Wicklow - "Ruth is an incredibly talented photographer. The photos she took of our family recently will be treasured forever. Ruth was jolly and courteous and made us feel very much at ease. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough."

Maura, Co. Wicklow - "Ruth is an amazing photographer, a true professional with a wonderful eye for detail. The photos she took of our family exceeded our wildest expectations. I wholeheartedly recommend Ruth for any photo shoot."


Donnacha, Co. Dublin - "Ruth did the photos for my website, she's really easy to work with and her photos are absolutely fantastic!"


Colleen Healey, ArcticDeco Interior Design, Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada - "One of our most prized art pieces is a large oversized photograph by Ruth Carden. She is so talented, and really cares about her clients. She's affordable, organized, and is highly skilled in all things photography. I couldn't be happier with the quality of the final prints we received as well and highly recommend her - you won't regret it!"
