How hard can it be !

At the end of last year we were invited along to take a look at some of the bedrooms at the Kildare Hotel Spa & Golf Club (also known as The K Club), near Straffan in County Kildare, which they were wanting us to possibly shoot sometime.

So we were shown around by their Marketing people, and while Marie talked to them about what all they wanted, who their market was, etc, etc – I took some quick pictures like this…
Recce images of one of the bedrooms at The K Club located near Straffan in County Kildare.
.. just to see what the camera saw, as well as get an idea of what I may have to do later on.

Anyway, last week we were back – but this time we didn’t just come to take some pictures, we were here this time to create some images that they would want to use instead.
So needless to say the wagon was fully loaded, which naturally took some time pack as well as unpack that evening on arrival…

.. but anyway, we kicked of the following morning in the Superior bedroom…

.. which by 10:47 we were ready to let Orla here…

.. see this final result…

.. to have it signed-off, so to speak.

Then it was over to the Barton Suite…

.. where Marie worked her magic as usual – while Stuart…

.. well he was obviously tired, so he decided to lie down on the job wink

Still, very pleased with the result…

.. as was Orla too.

Next up was the Liffey Deluxe suite…

The Presidential Suite was next…

.. and enjoying a glass of wine outside.

Next morning I told Marie how I’d caught a fish this big
The Viceroy Suite at the Kildare Hotel Spa & Golf Club
.. or maybe I was showing her a possible camera angle wink

Either way, it was the huge Viceroy Suite next…

Pretty Wow !!

Anyway, next up was the Liffey Suite…

.. which was one of the bedrooms we had taken pictures off before (which I showed above) – and so after the team had done their thing, this was the end result…

.. as Stuart hung out the window to fill the room with beautiful light.

Next morning we started in Suite 6…

.. which thankfully was on the ground floor, as it was bucketing down outside – so lights up and rain coats on…

.. as we knew we had to be quick here…

.. to capture this suite’s U.S.P, which we felt the waiter highlighted to perfection.

The last room was dark due to it raining outside…

… and much smaller than the others too – so please wait outside…

.. tired but very happy – that we had actually made it look, as if we hadn’t done anything at all here, besides just take some quick pictures of what happened to be there, with a really good camera.

Because, like how hard can it be, to shoot a few bedrooms smile

Anyway, from Marie, Stuart & me – we hope we have made you want to stay at The K Club – as that was our goal here when we creating images – which is a truly amazing place in the beautiful County of Kildare, as you can clearly see.
