Ireland does golf well

I may not be a golfer myself, however, I enjoy watching our Irish boys doing well – and it was great to follow the recent Irish Open in Portrush.

We had a most enjoyable meeting and recce trip during the week with the management of Mount Juliet Country Estate – a stunning 5-star resort in County Kilkenny, which includes a championship golf course. The grounds and parkland course are so immaculate, it’s obvious why it is rated so highly and has hosted some major tournaments.

Before shooting a hotel, we spend a lot of time just trying to understand the Client’s needs – so we take loads of recce shots; we listen carefully to the Client and then we produce a Concept Report…
Concept report for Mount Juliet Country Club by Ashley Morrison and Marie McMillen.
.. suggesting images that we feel will work for them over the next few years.

It’s a time-consuming exercise but as our strapline says – “great shots don’t just happen” !!

So hopefully a bit like the Irish Open at Royal Portrush, we will back down to Mount Juliet Country Estate sooner rather than later as a result.

Is the title of our latest published work in the August 2012 issue of Ireland’s Homes Interiors & Living magazine…
The cover plus pages 82 to 94 in the August 2012 issue of Ireland's Homes Interiors & Living magazine featuring Marie and Alan McMillen's 1920's semi detached house in the tree-lined Cherryvalley area of Belfast.
.. on pages 82 to 94, plus on the cover too – featuring Marie and Alan McMillen’s 1920’s semi detached house in the tree-lined Cherryvalley area of Belfast.

“Marie & Alan thoroughly enjoyed giving their pretty semi in the leafy suburbs of Belfast some much needed TLC.”

Which we talked about shooting here: The French Connection.

Tender loving care indeed, so a huge thanks to everyone involved for their hard work here – and congratulations once again to Marie & Alan – especially for making it onto the cover too.
