The gorgeous Ellen Connolly dropped down to the studio a while ago for a shoot to get some new looks for her book and to get some good Wexford fresh air. Ellen is a stunning model currently with Assets.
Meet Christina, the beautiful Romanian Model, based in Abu Dhabi but who travels the world. I found Christina on Model Mayhem while searching for models to shoot in Dubai. I was visiting Australia in February 2016, with a stop off in Dubai, so it was a great opportunity to get a shoot in or two.
We only had 2 hours to shoot in my place in Dubai, a 34th floor apartment. It was some natural looks, minimal makeup, nothing too fancy. The setup was kept minimal also, using just window light for the majority of the shots. For the last set on the bed, I introduced a speedlight into the mix. I experimenting playing around with it as a fill light for some shots and using it as a key. I had connected to a pocket wizard, so it was wireless and hence Christina was able to play around with it.
You can follow Christina on Twitter & Instagram. Also as usual, any comments or questions, you can hit me up below in the comments.
Emma Quinlan is back in studio! It was well over a year since our last shoot to it was great to have the messer back down! It was more of a mess that a shoot, no set plan just throw a few ideas out there and see what happens. Although with Emma, it usually involved plenty and flesh.
Great shoot with Hannah Geoff from Assets recently. Hannah dropped down recently to update her portfolio. We aimed for mostly natural looks for this shoot. Any questions regards lighting or setup, drop them in the comments below.
I have been fortunate to work with various Miss Ireland’s over the years. It is always great working with such beautiful, elegant and hard working women. Sacha is no different. The Hillsborough beauty worked her way up from the Miss Antrim title to the goal of Miss Ireland. She is currently with CMPR so is no stranger to the fashion world and presenting herself well. Unfortunately success wasn’t to be had at the Miss World event, but she was a great ambassador for Ireland.
We had a great day shooting in studio, with a nice early start for Sacha for her drive down. We were aiming for a easygoing test shoot, natural makeup, nothing major. Sacha looked after her own hair and makeup for the shoot and what a great job she done. We shoot on my usual white background and we also tried out my new black corner set. It is a still work in progress and there is lots of testing to do with it to see what kind of light can be achieved with it, but so far so good.
The bodysuit look against the white wall was the more striking of the looks. It showed off Sacha’s 5’9 figure perfectly. The shots were featured in the Irish Sun in March 20th. Screenshot shown below also.
As you can tell, I have not been posting as much behind the scenes posts as much anymore, that is purely a time issue. Social Media is the best way to see what I get up to on a shoot. Click on the links on the top right. Also, if you have any questions on anything, post them in the comments below.
