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.
Don’t forget to check out and follow Sacha on her social media also: https://www.instagram.com/slivingstonee/
Emma Quinlan, what a woman. She wears many hats and does it well. Her Twitter bio sums her up well: “Geek, Usually found on a mountain. Dogs & horses, yoga or writing. Crossfit gets me to summits, Everest summit 2017. editor/contributor/dreamer:”
I shot with Emma in studio ages ago ( Oct 2014) but didn’t get around to posting the pictures for two main reasons. One being they it was for a feature in Arsenic Magazine (since removed?) and also for the fact that i have generally kept and NSFW ( Not Safe for Work ) images away from the blog. Not sure really why… maybe it’s the catholic upbringing casting a un-approaving eye over it. Either way… I am over that now and have lots of NSFW shoots to post up. The are a mixt classy fashion nipple, black and white type shots, right up to more glamour looks that I shoot… mostly when in the UK. Click the NSFW tag to view more shoots like that.
But minions I hear you say? Aye…. sure why not. Emma love her minions and sure any excuse it good to get to hang out with Emma. Emma is a very interesting girl and has done lots and have lots going on . Follow her on Twitter and Instagram to keep up with what she does.
Check the Emma Quinlan tag to see what else we have gotten up to together. And as always, any questions on it, drop them in the comments box below.
If you have been following my blog / work for a while ( let’s face it… you’re just here for the hot women) then you would know that I Rachel Wallace and I go back a few years. You can catch up with all of Rachel’s shoots here.
I am still in catch up mode with getting older work up here on the website that I should have done years ago, hence why the lack of much background info on a shoot. It is just because I shot this last year and I just can’t remember the particulars 🙂 . This post is actually a combination of two shoots though, one quick shoot with just me and Rachel and the other was when Rachel popped down with Eve Ryan for a shoot.
As usual, any comments or questions on the shots, hit me up in the comments below.
Kerrie is a beautiful Irish girl who has also found herself living in LA, Santa Monica to be exact. I meet up with Kerrie on my 2015 LA Trip for a few hours to shoot and hang out. Kerrie is an interesting person and indeed a successful author also. You can check out her book, “Confessions of a Teenage Ballerina” on Amazon.
Kerrie has an amazing figure as the pictures show. She is a popular and regular feature on LA billboards when she models for 138 Water. You can see even more fab pictures of Kerrie on this Google Image Search.
Kerrie’s shots were used in the Sunday World along with Shahira’s
I met up with Roz back in March 2015 on my LA Trip. Roz moved over to the States a few years now and is doing great for her self. Modelling, acting as well as some other work in the mix, she is kept busy.
One of Roz’s best claim to fame of the last while has been her Model Bombing video where she entertained the men of LA in lingerie. See below:
You can follow Roz on Twitter and Instagram
It has been a few years since I last shot Shahira in my studio. She then she has made the permanents move to L.A. to pursue a career in acting as well as modelling. I caught up with her for a few shots and a chat while I was in L.A in 2105. You can follow Shahira on Twitter
Tipperary Teacher, Aoife Walsh was crowned Miss Ireland for 2013. She was a very deserving winner too in my eyes and one of my favourite Miss Ireland’s to shoot. Her fantastic red hair adds to the quintessential Irish’ness about her and would do her proud on the Miss World stage. Unfortunately that didn’t work out for her, but she still had a great year as Miss Ireland and has plenty of modeling work here to keep her going.
It was great to get her down in studio for a shoot. We had done the usual Twitter and Facebook chats about doing a shoot and it eventually came together. A lot of time when trying to organise a shoot with people online, the interest can fizzle out. But not this time.
We had a great team on board for the shoot. Fellow Wexfordian Laura Mullett (http://www.lauramullett.com/) styled the shoot. I have worked with Laura before and she always brings fantastic style to shoot. Sophie Wong was at hand for fantastic Makeup for Aoife as well as Hair Styling. Sophie is also Wexford based, so it was a nice local team in studio.
It was a great shoot, covering lots of looks from some Raceday looks to some fashion and headshots. The shot above with the blue bodysuit from American Apparel is one my favs. It was actually a test shoot that turned out great. I just really liked Aoife’s post and expression…. I can’t remember what I was jabbering on about at the time, trying to keep her entertained while doing the test shots. I used my white setup and flash bracket for this shot. You can see other posts on the “White Wall” HERE
Sinead is one of those people beautiful on the inside and out. Not only does Sinead have the beauty, she has the brains to match as she is just about a qualified teacher. It is always great craic shooting with Sinead, normally we would be working with Aimee and Laura on a shoot, but this time it’s just the two of us. We didn’t need a full time this time around as shoot was all natural looks for a fitness feature in the Irish Sun
Sinead was on a bit fitness buzz at the time and was training hard in Go Gym and they were kind enough to let us shoot in the Gym in Greystones for a few hours.
Rachel Wallace once again graces the studio with her presence for a test shoot. I might as well call Rachel my muse at this stage as we have shot together so much. The reason why we have shot together so much… because we just create awesomeness together.
This time, Rachel brought down her dog with her for the shoot, so naturally we had to get some shots in with her, after the pee was cleaned up of course. Rachel is a huge dog lover, if you follow her on Instagram you will see what I mean.
The shoot in general was a press shoot. It was the first time I had shoot with Rachel since her much talked about boob job with the Sunday World. You can see her Pre-Op shoot here that we done a few months ago. Some of the shoot from this shoot were picked up by the Irish Sun. You can see all my other published work here.
Any comments or questions on any of my work, feel free to contact me below in the comments section.
If you follow Rachel, when you know that she recently underwent breast enlargement surgery…. recently as in last year… I am still a few months behind on blogging about shoots. She dropped down to do her last shoot before before she went under the knife to get some shots for the Sunday World who are covering the transformation. Rachel is being being very open and public about the change which is in contrast to most people who get it done. Some people would deny that they had them done… but nope, not Rachel.
Rachel, being a former gymnast always had an athletic figure. She still felt that she needed a bit more to pursue the type of modelling opportunities that she wanted though and the operation was the route for her. At the time of writing this blog post, I have a new shoot with Rachel with her new assets currently being retouched so you will be able to check for your self to see if you like the results. So check this link to view that and all my shoots with Rachel.
Rachel came down with Sinead Duffy on the day. Both girls were getting shots for press and we done some fun shots of them together also. They will be for another post 🙂 . Styling on the day was done by Laura Mullett. We had a bit of fun both in and out of the studio that day. There is an old Rolls Royce on the grounds of the studio here and so we put that to good use, taking some inspiration from Rosie Huntington shoot. The girls done their own hair and make-up on the day of the shoot as it was a relaxed, fun day. Some times not having a big team around and having a more relaxed shoot is a lot better.
As usual, any questions on the shoot, drop them below in the comments.
