Videographer, Photographer, Video Editor and Motion Designer based in Cork City.
Born in Cork and raised in Kerry down in the south west of Ireland, ever since I was young I have always been obsessed with making things.
I went through many dreams of what I could create in life but somewhere along all these different dreams of crafting, I found my grá (love) for cameras and design.
With years of professional experience both as a full-time post production technician and as a camera operator, I am lucky to have worked with large international clients and on some great creative sets.
At the start of 2023 I decided to go freelance and expand my creative work as Brenóg Media. The name Brenóg comes from 'Breathnach óg' meaning 'young Walsh' in Irish. I was called young Walsh a lot in my local community growing up so it is a personal thing that I like to carry with me going forward in my professional career.
My aim is to take on ambitious projects in the fields of fillmaking, videography and photography. With years of experience working in the TV, Film and Video industry, I have the skills to work across many fields from pre to post production.
Below you can find details on my professional experience in video editing and camera operating.
Graduating from the University of Limerick with a First Class Honours degree in Music, Media and Performance Technology, I have gone on to gain experience working in the video/TV industry in a variety of roles both in post-production and on set.
I have worked for two major production companies, AV3 Media and Telegael Studios, producing TV and corporate media for high profile international clients, international TV broadcast and Irish TV broadcast.
As a freelancer, I have captured, edited and graded video for local business and corporate clients. I have worked on set as a production assistant for two RTÉ programmes, worked as an event photographer and edited programmes for television.
From this experience I am highly proficient as a video editor, audio editor, motion designer, camera operator and assistant, photographer and drone operator.

I worked at Telegael Studio in Spiddal, Co. Galway for 8 months as part of my cooperative education at the University of Limerick. While working here:

I have several years experience in Photography giving me artistic skills, communication skills and above all else, the patience to wait for perfect moment.
Working on-set for both TV and Corporate shoots, I have gained great skills in operating cameras and gimbals to provide high quality video work.
Complimenting my videography work I have built up my drone operating skills to expand my video and photos to new heights.
From my media work I have developed vital skills in managing the light of the scene. Understanding the key concepts of lighting allows me to explore my creativity on set.
With over 3 years experience editing I have become highly skilled in the process as well as becoming proficient in Adobe Premiere Pro and DaVinci Resolve
Complementary to my editing work I am skilled in Motion Graphics Design using Adobe After Effects. Link work between Adobe AE and PP is key to my workflow
I am highly skilled in Colour Grading primarily through DaVinci Resolve but also with Adobe's Lumetri Colour.
I am highly skilled in photo editing using Adobe Lightroom, Bridge and Photoshop. Efficient shortlisting and editing is an important part of my photography process.
I am proficient in Adobe Illustrator and use it to provide assets and icons for a range of projects. An example of this is all the icons on this website which I designed and animated myself!
Working in media I have developed great communication skills and skills in customer relationship management. Clear communication to my clients and co-workers is vital to me.
From experience working on several large projects at once, I have developed skills in production management. This includes script supervising, organising shoots, coordinating people on-set and managing multi-editor projects,
Media management was a key skill I utilised on set for several productions. Ensuring the safe transfer of data on-set and in post is essential to the safety of a project. I am highly skilled in keeping projects safe, organised and easily available to clients and coworkers.
