Awaken the giant within

Welcome to Sleeping Giant Studio

Sleeping Giant Studio is a revolutionary photographic studio that specializes in commercial photography and portraiture.

What is Sleeping Giant Studio?

The Sleeping Giant Studio is the brainchild of Karen McHugh and Eileen Regan of Dingle, County Kerry, Ireland.  We have combined our talents in photography, graphic design and project management to create a contemporary and energetic company that focuses on images and imagery. 

Why choose us?

Our mission.

Our vision.

For our ability to produce compelling images.  When we are not producing images we are helping others to do so.

Our mission is to provide creative services, gallery quality prints and photographic services that exceed your every expectation.

Becoming the most sought after company for photography and design.

Eileen Regan


Karen is a professional photographer who received her training and degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in the US.  Nothing makes her happier than working on creative projects with our clients.  Her experience in project management adds to her ability to oversee complex projects with positive results.


She is an active member of the International Association of Professional Photographers, American Association of Media Professionals and Irish Professional Photographers Association.  She  holds "Curator" status in Viewbug and a judge for the Dingle Food Festival Photo Contest.

Eileen brings over 20 years of graphic design experience to the studio.  In addition to being an amazing artist, Eileen spent 20 years as the Art Director of a major US hardware and merchandising company.


Her experience has spanned two continents as both a designer and project manager.  She holds a Associates Degree in Graphic Arts from MATC and is currently the point person for a number of Sleeping Giant Studio projects.

Romy is our Director of Fun.  Every business should have one.  What she brings to the business is a joie de vivre that opens the creative channels and brings humour and brightness to our thought process.


All she requires for her contribution to the cause is a scratch behind the  ears and kibbles... lots of kibbles.
