Simon Conlon

Hello, my name is Simon and I take photos.

Years ago, my dad put an old 1960’s Russian camera in my hands and told me that if I could learn how to take a photo with all the dials and numbers and knobs I’d be off to a good start. I think he was right.

I started off working in theatre and the most important thing it taught me is how to work collaboratively with others when being creative. Bring your all to the table and don’t get too precious about your ideas, the next one might be exactly the one you both have been looking for.

I’ve also won many awards, Most Improved at Poetry, Best Costume Halloween 2010 and Best Usher at Kenny’s Wedding. Most Improved never really felt like an award.
