Fashion Shoot with CHS Villach Austria

Was surprised and excited to be asked to do a fashion photo shoot of an Austrian school that were coming to Dublin for a week on a language course. I’d never done a proper fashion shoot before, and when I looked at the quality of the imagery on the school’s website (you can find the cool imagery here ) I knew it wasn’t a case of just turning up with a camera and pressing click. The preparation paid off as we got two lovely days for the shoot, as well as having students who were very committed to carrying out the shoots properly. You realise too as a local, how beautiful Dublin can be when you take a step back and observe what’s around you. A lot of pictures were taken but I’ve included some of the photos below. Thanks to CHS Villach, especially Gerhard, Elisabeth and Barbara for all their help, as well as the students for being so committed and professional on both shoots.

Look Good Feel Better Ireland's Make Up Programme

Really enjoyed being asked to record a mini series of videos for Look Good Feel Better Ireland, where a make up artist (in this case the really talented Margaret Heffernan) gives tutorials on how to prepare and apply make up (to the wonderful model Layla de Cogan Chin) . It was a really nice experience to be a part of, and you could honestly feel a more positive energy in the room once the recording was over. They were really great to collaborate with too, and it was nice to go back to doing some video work after a lot of the photography I’ve been doing lately. You can see some of the work from it in the clips below…

Men at Play by Good Dog Theatre

And here are some of the productions shots I got for Good Dog Theatre’s Men at Play, written and directed by Brian Burns. I photographed a run through of this back when it was in its infancy almost a year and a half ago so it was great to see how far the show has come along since then. My first time photographing a show in the Complex too so it presented some nice new angles for me to shoot from. Here are some of the pics below…
