About Andrea Lucy | Food Photographer Ireland

Andrea Flanagan is a Food Photographer based in Dublin. Originally from Sligo, Andrea has completed a MA in Photography from the London Metropolitan University and a BA in Fine Art in NCAD. Andrea has worked with a number of well established restaurants and food producers.


Andrea’s aim is to photograph all things food related using a simple and direct approach resulting in high impact photographs which capture the natural beauty of the food involved. Working closely with clients Andrea will help each client realise their objectives in how they wish for their food to be portrayed. She makes the overall process effortless and more importantly fruitful

“Food, art and photography are the three great loves in my life. Being able to combine all three is a dream come true. Before each project I like to collaborate with the client about what they are looking for their photographs to portray. Once a clear picture of what we are aiming for is established, I start to prepare for the shoot.

This includes constructing mood boards, gathering props, working out perfect locations, preparing for interior shots and the list goes on. I leave no stone unturned so that on the day of the shoot we are going to make the most of every minute. The client and I both share a mutual passion for food and this whole process should be both efficient and fun!”

“Andrea provided professional food photography services to Good4U on several occasions over the last two years. She has a great grasp on creating the images we are looking for. She has fantastic vision and makes the whole process effortless and enjoyable. She is always wonderful to work with and her professionalism, skill and talent knows no boundaries! ”

Laura Butler / Marketing Manager Good4U

“Over the last few years, I’ve worked with Andrea and suggested her to other food clients in Sligo. She’s a great asset to us here in the Northwest; she has a grá for the local flourishing food scene here in the Northwest and is becoming well known as an important proponent of it.
It’s clear she has spent time honing her styling skills and developing her photographic expertise. I really love the aesthetic of her work; a very clean and minimal feel, with a light nod to tradition and heritage. With an artistic background, you can see her work marries the technical and creative skill-set which great photography requires.
I have used her photography for social media campaigns, websites and to successfully pitch stories to national media in Ireland. I have no doubt that the professional photography provided by Andrea is a major factor in landing those media articles. I would be happy to recommend her to anyone researching food photography.”
Denise Rushe / Starling Media

“I had the pleasure of working with Andrea recently. I wanted her to capture the true essence of the food we are producing whilst keeping the images as natural and honest as possible. She achieved this in spades and I was blown away with the results. I found her a delight to work with and made the whole process effortless. She has a great eye for detail and styled the food beautifully. ”

Gary Stafford / Lyons Cafe Sligo

“Working with Andrea was fantastic. She is the ultimate professional and provides great results. She really understood what style of images I was looking for and she delivered above and beyond what I had hoped for. I use her images on our website and on all our social media. It is so reassuring to know we are letting our customers see how good our product is. Andrea had great ideas and is a natural creative. We will defiantly be using her again!”

Peter Rock / The Exchequer

Having Andrea come capture our food, cocktails and interiors was such a treat. We had a really fun day working with her. She got the shots we were looking for and really captured what The Draft House is about!”
