A Present of a Portrait for Christmas.....

Portraits are a present for life, so many times I have been told if we didn't have this gift voucher we would never have commissioned a portrait so not only are you buying a present you are enabling a family to do something they might never do and they will be so thankful once they receive their beautiful framed family portrait !!!! Buy someone you love a studio session with framed image for Christmas !!! If you already have been to the studio you could re-order an image for Granny or your Auntie. Give me a call on 047 51788 0r 087 9948585, txt me or facebook message me or go to www.ethamill.com . Have a great Christmas and an extremely prosperous New Year...

FAREWELL PHOTOLABS OF LENNOX STREET.....

It was with great regret that I heard that Michael, Joe & Jim would be quitting the professional photographic scene. They have been an integral part of processing for many years in Dublin and serviced the whole country with distinction, integrity and professionalism. They will be missed and I for one am proud to call them my friends and I must say enjoyed the few pints to bid farewell, in the process meeting Jim Travers and his wife where many old stories were told. I particularly remember when I was starting out and sending my 120 rolls of film for one of my first weddings on my brand new Hasslebladd (how I miss thee !!), phonecall from Michael; "Eugene did you use your light meter when taking these images", "I did" came my reply, "Thank God" said Michael as you were using slide film" !!!!  They were the most perfect images thanks to the old meter, a lesson for us all that the old ways work and to sometimes poerhaps slow down and maybe even use the light meter. Photolabs even looked after me on the price(much more expensive to print slides). Thanks for the many years of excellent service guys...

MEND A MIND YSI students Largy College, Clones, Co. Monaghan

I was delighted to accommodate the YSI (Young Social Innovators) students of Largy College and let them use my studio to complete their short film highlighting the effects of mental health issues within our community. Their project aims to eliminate the stigma that surrounds mental illness in our community and they are conveying this with film and awareness raising events in the locale. I must say it was great to see the students spend the full day making their film even though most schools in the country were closed due to strike. Well done to Laura and all her pals in transition year, hopefully ye will make a difference and as they say always try to put yourself in mind of how other people are feeling , you just never know what is going on with people  especially those who are close to you. A problem shared is a problem halved ......

C'MON IRELAND YOU CAN DO IT !!!!!

Ireland play on Saturday against Belgium, I bet all these "Happy Faces" clients will be shouting "C'mon Ireland" at the tops of their voices. Hopefully Northern Ireland can do the business against Ukraine now.....

CAIRDE... 1500 euros, Thank you !

It was with great pride that I was able to present “Cairde” Clones with a cheque for a fantastic 1500 euros, all proceeds from

Eugene T. Hamill Photography’s“Happy Faces” event in April at our Clonboy studio in Clones. As ever upon request the people Of clones

and its hinterland gave very kindly to our request for a donation of 25 euros each for a portrait with their full donation going to the

wonderful community that is “Cairde” here in Clones. Cairde provides a facility for people withspecial needsto go and express

themselves by learning to make crafts, learning to sing and dance, learning how to communicate confidently with the general public

and most importantly becoming friends with each other as well as teaching us the general public to understand their needs and want

for respect within our community. I think they do a wonderful job and all the staff who work with them deserve great credit for carrying

out their caring duties to the fullest while preserving the dignity and respect their clients are entitled to. This is a magnificent facility we

have here in Clones and they certainly deserve every penny you the community have given them, Thank you, Thank you.

Eugene would like his clients who are waiting to choose their images and those who have already chosen their images to contact him

to organise appointments for viewing and for collection of images at the studio on 047 51788, 087 9948585 or through his facebook account .

Again Thank you for your great Contribution to people in need !!!!
