Bernard van Giessen



Always interested in light and colour, I studied fine art in Holland but chose photography as my preferred medium. My commercial photography career started in the Dutch offshore industry when I photographed rigs, ships and factories. On moving to Ireland I turned my focus to gardens and architecture. I am a Dublin-based garden photographer and I travel across the country in a camper to photograph some of Ireland’s most iconic gardens and houses. Recent clients include: Hunting Brook in Co. Wicklow, Tourin House and Gardens in Co. Waterford, Blarney Castle and Gardens in Co. Cork, and Kilmacurragh Botanic Gardens in Co. Wicklow. I was commissioned to supply images for "A Beautiful Obsession" a book about Hunting Brook garden, written by Jimi Blake & Noel Kingsbury. The book was published by Filbert Press late 2019.

Additional Interests

Going for walks in the Wicklow hills together with my partner and our mini-Schnauzer. Jazz. Geology.
