As photographers, we all strive to take photographs that make people sit up and take notice. Here are the shots and stories that did just that.

The exhibition The Shot That Made Me sees photographers pinpoint the breakthrough shots in their careers – whether they’re of ballet, Malala or Branson

I was invited by Irish poet, writer and screenwriter – Patrick Chapman – to contribute cover photography for his latest collection of poetry; titled ‘Slow Clocks of Decay’. Delighted to do so. The shot selected is of a forlorn rose in my garden on a cold winter’s day. I admired its fortitude in the face of diminishing odds of surviving the north-easterly winds buffeting our garden and decided to capture the rose’s plight in photography. Admiration is also in order for Patrick’s latest work of poetry. As the sleeve notes succinctly states, Patrick’s seventh poetry collection succeeds in ‘Exploring universal themes through the lens of his remarkable imagination’. I’ve selected a poem from the collection that encompasses the transient themes of Patrick’s work. The impermanence of everything.

I named my photography blog ‘Time Machine’ for a reason. In rather sad circumstances, British photographer Lee Jeffries eloquently sums up what photography is and why it matters. RIP “Cowboy”.

“In Irish mythology, Ériu was the goddess of ancient Ireland. I love shooting landscape in Ireland. The nuanced light combined with the etheric body of an ancient land almost guarantees interesting results. My series of images of this mysterious land are an attempt to capture the special ‘atmosphere’ of the topology rather than classic picture postcard photography. Hopefully I succeeded. All images shot with the LGG4 and edited exclusively with the Snapseed photo app.” – Sean Hayes.
