Overlooking Belfast Lough.

This week we headed to Holywood in County Down (as opposed to Hollywood in American) were we produce some images of this magnificent house…
Anna and Jamie McMinnis's contemporary detached house which overlooks the County Down town of Holywood and Belfast Lough.
.. which belongs to Anna & Jamie McMinnis.

Pretty stunning – as were the view too, as it looked out over Belfast Lough – which on a day like this, was something else.

Anyway, inside was equally impressive – to the eye anyway – but as can been seen here…

.. what looks good to the eye, doesn’t always look good for the camera – or at least not as good as one would like it to be sometimes.

So the team when to work on this one – Claudio set-up the lights and Marie…

.. well she posed for another ‘a behind the scenes’ image by the looks of it wink

Anyway, after both Marie & Claudio had done their thing, the transform was from the the camera’s point of view, was now more like what my eye was seeing, i.e. a beautiful room which would look amazing especially if the sun was pouring in.
So once we had achieved that, then it was time for a shot of Anna – and this was the result…

.. as she posed to perfection, to complete the story we were trying to tell here.

The kitchen was next…

.. which as you can see here…

.. required very little work, besides the placement of a few very nice cups and the controlling of the light.

And so it was throughout this contemporary style house – Claudio worked on the lighting, Marie posed for another ‘behind the sense’ shot…

.. as well as added the final touches too – which, joking aside, I think she is brilliant at – and I took lots of pictures like this…

.. to complete the story that we were all trying to tell – which was simply to say, it looks amazing, as you can see smile

Anna’s reply, after I sent her a link to preview our work, as well as her own of course:

“Thank you very much Ashley for sending us the photographs, they look stunning!”

“Praise is bread to an artist” – so thank you and thank you for inviting us in too – because we felt that your house and what you had done here inside it, was pretty stunning too – so great ‘team work’ is how I would see it smile

From Marie, Claudio & me overlooking Belfast Lough in Holywood.

  3. Great work Ashley.
    Can you make an option to share on twitter?

    • Thanks – and Yes, I believe WordPress here does in fact automatically post what I write here on Twitter too – as well as in LinkedIn and FaceBook too – unless I un-tick the boxes for it to do that.
