Last April, I did a shoot with Sarah from vintage hire company Pearl & Godiva. Sarah, who is also a talented stylist went into overdrive and created a fantastic setting in Ballinatray House. A quick scout unearthed a few great locations on the grounds of the estate. Industry friends such as the award winning designer Bonzie Crotty, make-up artist Kate Rose Crean and cinematographer Rodolphe from Mary Best Day Productions helped to create a very unique shoot. The great weather helped a bit too.
The work was featured the popular blog http://www.100layercake.com/blog/ with some great comments like: “Delighted to see the best of Irish on 100 Layer Cake! Congrats guys!” and: “This is absolutely exquisite. Best shoot I’ve seen in forever.”
Last week I had an hour to shoot up and coming Waterford band Kodakid. The location is one that I found some time ago, a brand new, unused road passing under the new Waterford bypass. Perfect for wet conditions. The new concrete acted as a great background while the opening created a great framing point. Using one light (and a few multiple exposures) here is what I got. Kodakid’s new single “Low 7″ is available for free download here.
“I have to say, you were nothing short of fantastic to hang with – seriously, you were the talk of the day. You impressed an awful lot of people! Not to say that I ever imagined you wouldn’t ;)
We simply could not be more pleased with your relaxed, cool and yet super magic professionalism. You contributed so much to making the day a smash for the both of us and everyone who had any contact with you.
If I could find more words of praise, I’d sing em!
