PHOTOGENIC is a Professional Photographic Portrait Studio specialising in creating beautiful family portraits - printed and framed by expert craftspeople - to display in your home.
Since they established their portrait studio in 1991, Barry & Margaret Moore have focused on just one thing - to give their clients wonderful family portraits which capture the important people, memories and times of their lives.
PHOTOGENIC opened in it's present location in Dalkey on June 16th 1999.
Both Barry & Margaret hold formal photography qualifications and started their careers as photographers of commercial interiors & products, which was nice but not very rewarding personally. The pictures were very much "...here today and gone tomorrow". It wasn't long before they realised the only photographs that really mattered or were truly valued for any length of time were the portraits they created for family, for friends & for themselves.
PHOTOGENIC have a sense of why people choose them from the years of feedback and repeat visits their clients make. Put simply, people love the quality and style of the portraits. "It's as if I can reach out and touch her face..." is what one client said about her toddler's portrait - except her toddler is now a teenager. "We always love coming for the update when a new grandchild arrives..." said another client who so far has a collection of four portraits of their growing band of grandchildren, spanning 12 years.
Some clients love that PHOTOGENIC "..don't change a thing!" and yet some say "OMG, I love all the new things you do..." Both of these things are true in equal measure.
Portraits must fulfil the desire for a beautiful portrait today and evoke wonderful memories for the future. Timeless, contemporary portraits - modern classics. If this is what you're looking for, you've come to the right place. Why not email us now and we can help you make a portrait of your own?
