Lawyers’ Photography Competition


Saturday, 10 September 2016, 3.30 PM

Good afternoon,

We had a great reaction to our LBDC Lawyers’ Photography Competition.

Stuning photos were submitted by lawyers living and working in

(i) London  (ii)  Dublin  (iii)  New York and  (iv)  San Francisco

We had a wonderful JUDGE  – Laurence McMahon (an ex lawyer and professional commercial photographer based in Dublin).  Laurence had a difficult job choosing our winning photo and runner up photographs.

Drum roll..

Laurence has just emailed me to announce the Winners.


Fiona Keddie, General Counsel at glh.

And Fiona’s WINNING PHOTOGRAPH is this one below:

Our JUDGE, Laurence McMahon said:

Fiona’s photograph taken on a river in Cambodia caught my eye. It  has a painterly feel to it.  Love the muted tones and moody nature which are amplified by the stillness of the water.  I am wondering what is around the corner.

You can see more of Fiona’s photographs on the link below:

Eleanor Geraghty,  Senior Associate at Hogan Lovells.

Our Judge said:

Eleanor’s photograph of horses on a beach in Donegal, Ireland grabbed my attention.  I like the panoramic crop  which really suited this photo.  Like the feeling of space and the colour of the sand as against the sky.

Michelle Geraghty, Legal Counsel at Afilias plc

Our Judge said:

Nicely captured.  A lovely summery feel with the blues and greens.  Like the way the focus is on steps with island in background.  Tells a nice story.
