You love a challenge!

We were back down last week to create some new images for our long standing client Doonbeg Golf Resort. It has been fascinating to see how they keep adding to their guest experience – and each time they bring something new to the table, needless to say, they want it captured for all to see.

Their latest offering is a very stylish beauty salon which is ideally located beside their luxury White Horse Spa.

With no natural light and lots of mirrors…

.. Ray (Marketing manager) simply said: You love a challenge!

Anyway, as always, it was a pleasure to work with them…

.. so we wish them every success with this latest venture.

We have shot lots Irish style bars over the years – the key is to convey a sense of warmth and atmosphere – a cold empty looking bar is never going to make potential clients say “I want to be there”.

So when we were down last week, we also shot their bar and restaurant in the golf club, which they call Darby’s bar.

The black wooden ceiling look great to the eye…

.. however, it sure didn’t make my life easy from a lighting perspective…

.. so a serious number of lights had to be used for this one – which needless to say was a challenge…

.. as we pieced the image together…

.. while their guests looked on

Still, I think in the end we managed to capture the warmth of this very appealing bar…

.. without disrupting to many people, which is always a factor when doing this type of shot !!

Anyway, a big thanks to Ray and all the staff at Doonbeg here, who worked alongside us to create these wonderful & challenging images
