Day one at Mount Juliet.

Is where we were shooting a few weeks ago, at this beautiful Country Estate…

.. in County Kilkenny.

So only getting around to updating my blog now, as I have been busy working on another project – but away, we kicked off day one shooting two of their bedroom suites in the Mount Juliet House – so there was the usual amount of pushing & shoving as Marie did her thing…
First picture taken in on of the bedroom suites at Mount Juliet Country Estate in County Kilkenny.
.. while Stuart set-up the lights…

.. to get it just right for the camera.

Which is what we do, turning this…

.. into an image that helps sell the dream.

Anyway, after spending most of the day working on the various bedroom suits, it was then time for the bar…

.. where Stuart stood in as a guest – and enjoyed a well deserved pint of Guinness 🙂

So that was day one – 5 images produced – which means we were on schedule, as 5 a day is my target figure on a job like this.

  3. Great shots as usual! I know you’re not really writing these blog posts for other photographers, but your lighting is so great and looks so natural that I’d really love it if you could share a little info about how you achieve such beautiful results. Especially since you seem to be capturing everything in camera and aren’t relying on exposure blending, hdr, etc.

    • Thanks Andrew.
      I’m very much ‘Old school’ – so I still tend to use a lot of lights – to not only create the look I’m after but also draw the viewer into & through the image as well.
      And if I have done my job right, it should look totally natural – as should the styling and the people within the images.

      All of which I believe helps to create that timeless look we are after, so as our clients will ‘want to use’ our images for years to come – which is our aim.

      So put it down to 30 years practicing the art of writing with light 🙂
