Last Wednesday morning I had a pretty early start, early for me anyway!

I was assigned by the Western People to photograph the Western Battalion of the Irish Army on a training exercise at Moore Hall, Co. Mayo.

I boarded a 10 seater Irish Air Force helicopter at Castlebar army barracks at 8am and was flown out to the site of the exercise.

For the next couple of hours I shot over 500 images of a very organized military operation which to me seemed very realistic.

It was one of the most enjoyable and exhilarating jobs I have done in a long time.

Here's a sample of the resulting images.

If you'd like to see the images bigger just click on the four arrows in the bottom right hand corner of the slide show.
