Corporate Event Photography at the COP21 Paris (Le Bourget, Paris) for The Mary Robinson Foundation, visiting from Dublin.

I was hired to document the whole Dialogue Conference, which included the preparation, the arrival of guests, the meet and greet, and, most importantly, the discussion and speeches. Focus was on several key speakers, including the French Ambassador for Human Rights, the Minister of State for Development and Francophony, and, of course, the 7th President of Ireland herself (Mary Robinson).

The Foundation were a pleasure to work with and it was indeed great to have been part of the COP21.
