I met up with Chloe on my last London trip. Chloe is an Irish girl living and working in London at the moment and she wanted to get do a shoot to get some nice pictures. As you can see, Chloe looks amazing and really rocked it at the shoot. Her friend Zoe was there also and she even got a few shots done after she seen how much fun Chloe was having.
We started off with the the easy looks, the body suit etc., something to ease into it. The first look of a shoot is always the hardest as there will be a certain amount of anxiety and confidence needing to be build. I generally do a good job ( I think 🙂 ) of helping people feel confident for a shoot, and Chloe is no exception here. At the end of the day, confidence is what make a person attractive; once you feel good, you look good.
We were shooting in the apartment that I had rented for the few days while I was there and they had great windows, plenty of natural light flooding in so I made the mode of it along with a 35mm 1.4 and 85mm 1.4 ( Sigmas).
What do you think of the shots, are the too glamoury or are the just nice? I am always interested to hear about what other people think of my work. Let me know in the comments below. You can follow Chloe on Instagram also.
Hayley Ryan is one of the most famous press call models of yesterday year. The stunning good looks and fab body could often ben see in the papers for various pr purposes. She has been with Assets Agency for most of that time as far as I know.
Hayley dropped down with her heavily pregnant friend Olivia Byrne who is also great at Hair & Makeup. Olivia got a few cool bump pictures for herself also.
It was amazing working with Hayley, obviously her stunning looks makes any photographer’s job that big easier. For this particular shoot, I loved Hayley’s tan lines. I would think that most other photographers would retouch out the tan lines, however I am not that big into retouching and plus, I think it adds a natural, edgy look to the shoots.
Let me know what you think about the tan lines below in the comments.
Sinead Duffy, teacher and Andrea Roche Model is back in studio for her 3rd shoot. She is the current Miss Irish Sun and is going to be for an extra year this year. The Miss Irish Sun competition is an entry pathway into the Miss Universe Ireland competition. As there is no Miss Universe Ireland this year, that means no Miss Irish Sun competition ( I think… don’t quote me on that). So that leaves Sinead to hold the title for an extra year. I have shot with Sinead before ( see all Sinead’s Shoots here), always a great laugh working with her.
This was a test shoot that we organised with Stylist Laura Mullet (www.lauramullett.com) Sinead dropped with Rachel Wallace. Laura had some cool ideas looks for the girls to try out so it worked great. Sinead applied her own makeup for the shoot and styled her own hair, which is by Great Lengths. It was a small team for the shoot, but sometimes for quick fun shoot / test shoot days, a small team is all thats needed.
I shot the green jacket against the white wall using the flash bracket as I discussed before. I have plenty more shoots to come soon with this technique. I am still working with it a lot, figure out different ways to use it and get the best out of it. It definitely gives a different look to the images and there is a time and place for it. In using it more and more to know as much as there is to know about it. Just like any light modifier, to know it perfectly also means that you know when not to use it. For example, if you wanted to shoot a beauty portrait, you would not be using one of these due to the harshness of the light.
The shots were published in the Irish Sun and Sunday Independent Life Magazine.
