Clare Inn and the George.

We have been shooting at the Clare Inn Hotel in County Clare…
The Clare Inn Hotel in Co Clare
.. and at the George Hotel in Limerick this week…
George Hotel
.. to create images like this…

.. as well as many others.

My favorite image has to be this one, of the Blue Dolphin Kids Club

.. at the Clare Inn – which was kind-of a fun shot, that came together very smoothly once the kids arrived… who were brilliant – as was Stuart too…

.. in an entertaining way to boot 🙂

However, Renae here…

.. the Group Marketing Manager for the Lynch Hotels – has been a Star throughout these shoots.
Totally organised and on top of everything, hence the results:

“It would be perfect for the Restaurant image that we wish to create.” – was basically the brief and this was that image…
Deerfield restaurant at the Clare Inn Hotel in County Clare.
.. which we produced in the Deerfield restaurant at the Clare Inn Hotel in County Clare – which I talked about here: Clare Inn & George, back in 2010.

Anyway, once again I will let the pictures tell the story – starting with the first picture taken…
First picture taken in the Park Restaurant at Killarney Park Hotel in the Irish County of Kerry.
.. in the Park Restaurant – which as you can see, looked nothing like Deerfield restaurant – but nevertheless, to create that ‘type of image’ was our goal here, so the images below will give you some idea of what followed…

.. and I knew that was it – which once again was on their website page for all the World to see…

.. before the end of the week.

So that was two in the bag and it was time for a spot of lunch – as next up was the Deluxe family bedroom.

A lighting challenge.

After a relative easy week shooting in the marquee at the five-star Doonbeg golf resort (which I read this week in the Irish Times, has now been bought over by US property mogul Donald Trump), where it was basically all lit – this week wasn’t so easy.

So we were back down in County Clare again, this time to shoot a number of areas inside Dromoland Castle, with the Land Rover fully loaded…
Unloading the camera and lighting equipment from the Land Rover outside Dromoland Castle in County Clare.
.. as I knew this was going to be a lighting challenge for sure.

Anyway, first up was to create a meeting style image in the newly decorated Terrace Room – so after Marie had finished setting it up…
Marie setting up in the Terrace Room at Dromoland Castle.
.. Carl blocked the sunlight, which I wasn’t actually expecting…
Setting up in the Terrace Room at Dromoland Castle.
.. and we had our first image in the bag…
The Terrace Room set-up for a business meeting at Dromoland Castle in County Clare.
.. before heading to the Lounge area, where it was clear from the start that this is where we’d have to work for our money…

.. but thanks to everyone and especially to Carl here…

.. who worked hard on the lighting – and then posed as the waiter while Marie lit the fire…
Setting up in the lounge area at Dromoland Castle in County Clare.
.. it only took us 2 hours to create this image…

.. which I was very, very pleased with – as this one had really worried me.

Then it was back into the Terrace Room again…

.. this time to shoot it as it would be setup for a banquet during the day…

.. and /or at night…

.. so basically we shot it both ways – to be sure, to be sure, as they word say here in Ireland smile

The following morning it was into the Cocktail bar…

.. which was formerly the Castle library – so while Carl set up the lights outside…

.. we moved the furniture so as to see the fireplace…

.. before adding the finishing touches to create this image…

.. which again I was personally very pleased with – as this one had worried me too, mainly due to how I would light it.

After that, it was over to The Inn at Dromoland to shoot the Presidential Suite, which required a bit of work as they wanted just one image to capture it all – so while Marie did her thing…

.. Carl & I did our thing – and for the fun of it, being close to Valentines day and all that, I decided to add a scene from the film Gone with the Wind – staring Clark Gable as Rhett Butler, Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O’Hara
The Presidential Suite at The Inn at Dromoland in County Clare.
.. and Leslie Howard as Ashley Wilkes – who I was named after it seems smile

So that was it – after what I can only describe as a major lighting challenge – it was time to load-up the Land Rover once again…

.. and head home in the rain – very tired but very pleased with the end results.

Anyway, just like to say big thanks to everyone involved – especially to Mark & Fiona from Dromoland Castle for making us feel so welcome.
