The perfect gift this Christmas.

This was one of my favorite images of 2017…
The Lobby & Reception area at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. which we talked about shooting here: The new & the old – but as you can see from the quick shots I recently took…
Recce shot of the newly refurbished reception area at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. they were in the poscess of making some changes…

.. and so that meant a new image was required.

However, even on the morning of the shoot…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. after having looked at it from various angles the night before as well, we still weren’t 100% sure about which was the best single angle…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. to show this newly refurbished reception area…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. but in the end, we decided it was basically from the front door this time – looking over their new furniture towards the front desk…

.. and so having all finally agreed on that – the lights went up…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. and the Christmas tree decorations naturally had to come down…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. at least until we had finished.

And so once again I was very glad I had brought the full team along to help…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. which these pictures clearly show they did…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. in their own special way Wink.

Seriously though, one of the things I love to look at afterward is these ‘behind the scenes’ pictures…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. especially the ones which Claudio takes – like this series…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. of us trying to reduce the marks on the carpet…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. as it’s easy to forget how much work goes into each of these images…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. or how many people are actually involved sometimes…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. or even stopping to ask “where did that outfit come from?”…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. because if you are like me, then I’m sure you already noticed that she wasn’t wearing that before Wink.

Which in a way is a good thing, because that’s obviously not what we want anyone to notice or even talk about when they look at this final image…
The reception area at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. of their new reception area.

Still, all this helps remind me as to why it takes so long to pack the wagon…

New bar and lounge area.

Two of the busiest areas in any hotel is the reception area and the lounge area – plus with the days being very short at this time of year – then bringing the full team along to help…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. seemed to make sense – because a few days before we were due to shoot this was how the terrace lounge area looked…
Recce shot of the newly refurbished area at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. at the Dunboyne Castle Hotel in County Meath – as it was being refurbished and a new bar was also being built…

.. behind the ‘false wall’ at the back.

And I was glad I did, as the first image appeared on screen…
One of the captures taken during the Dunboyne Castle Hotel shoot.
.. because it was “a bit of a grey old day”, as they would say here in Ireland – which means we didn’t have that lovely sun-lit feel, which one would naturally see on a good day, due to the large windows along the left and skylight windows (above) on the right.

So 3k’s up…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. as the guys reckoned a bank of these would do the trick…
One of the captures taken during the Dunboyne Castle Hotel shoot.
.. and then we ran through the various “ where to put the people” options…

.. before our models arrived to take up their positions…

.. which was naturally followed by a few more quick shots…

The Duchess Slant.

With the Royal Wedding coming up, naturally, there has been a lot in the news about Meghan Markle recently and how she is quickly learning her future ‘acting’ role – and who better to learn from than Kate Middleton: Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Anyway, one of the things which I found very interesting, which I hadn’t actually picked up on before, was the ‘duchess slant’.

“The knees and ankles are clasped firmly tighter and the legs are slanted to the side, creating a flattering silhouette.”

“Typically the ‘duchess slant’ is used when a lady has to sit for an extended amount of time while keeping poise and posture,” says Myka Meier, royal etiquette expert and founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette. “It is the perfect pose for when a camera is shooting directly in front of you because by slightly slanting the knees to create a zig-zag effect when wearing a dress or skirt, your legs are angled so that the camera only shoots the sides of your legs and protects your modesty.”

And so with that in mind, it was time for some Afternoon Tea…

One, two, three.

Last year we produced a series of images at Dunboyne Castle Hotel which included this one…
The Alder Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. which we talked about shooting here: Boardrooms.

Well, we were back last week as they have now renovated this and their other meeting rooms, by basically turning them all into one much larger room…
The Cedar Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. which can then be divided back into smaller rooms again, using a ‘roll out room divider’ system.

And so that was what they wanted to show, i.e. how this newly renovated corporate/meeting room can be used in different ways.

Executive Boardrooms

Dunboyne Castle Hotel features three contemporary boardrooms. The Alder & Copper Beech Suites can cater for up to 20 guests, while Cedar Suite caters for up to 60 delegates. The Suites overlook the mature woodlands on the estate and are ideal for intimate business meetings.

One done, two to go – type of thing – as 2 rooms would look like this…
Behind the scenes during the shoot in the Cedar Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. which after some fine tuning, both inside…
Behind the scenes during the shoot in the Cedar Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. and out…
Behind the scenes during the shoot in the Cedar Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. looked pretty good…

.. and a few minutes later…

.. we were all happy with that:

Two done, one to go – as I moved the camera back…
Behind the scenes during the shoot in the Cedar Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. everyone moved in…
Behind the scenes during the shoot in the Cedar Suite at Dunboyne Castle Hotel.
.. and did their thing…

So a decision had to be made.

After shooting the Experience suites the day before – which I talked about here: Between the showers – it was out to shoot the front terrace…
“One
.. the follow morning.

OUR THINKING: Front terrace.

“We like this angle as it shows your unique wicker seating and the contrasting facades.
We would also like the grey storage box removed so we would see a clean line of your wonderful large pots with the olive trees.

6 people, 1 staff would give this area a buzzing atmosphere.
2×2 male and female and 2 ladies.
The 2 ladies would be in the foreground, so how they look would be very important, think ladies in their 30s.

Smart casual dress as they have been shopping, props to suggest.

Food requirements: Coffee and biscuits for the ladies. Club sandwiches and drinks for the table in the background with staff serving.”

So with the camera in roughly the same spot…
“One
.. on what was looking to be another dull day – Claudio when ahead and set-up the lights…
“Behind
.. but as you can tell from the look on Dianne’s face here…
“Behind
.. she wasn’t impressed when she looked at this image on the screen…
“Behind
.. as those three 3K’s were doing very little, as you can see.

No, it wasn’t looking good…
“Behind
.. as there was no sign of the sun – and I really couldn’t see that it was going to appear anytime soon

So a decision had to be made – as I obviously couldn’t light up the whole world, never mind the front of this building, to make it look like the sun was shining – and so as you can see I wasn’t too happy…
“Behind
.. as we said our farewells…
“Behind
.. and started to load the wagon…
“Behind
.. because there was no pointing in me wasting everyone’s time here.

But then for some strange reason, the Land Rover refused to start…
“Behind
.. which as strange as it may sound – could have been because of what could be seen on the bonnet – because yes, that was a blue sky…
“Behind
.. which by the look of it, I still wasn’t too happy to see wink

Seriously though, I couldn’t believe it – so with the camera back in it’s place…
“Behind
.. the next image on the screen confirmed…
“Behind
.. the sun was now shining – and so just one light was required this time…
“Behind
.. to add a touch of fill…
“Behind
.. to where the main group of people were going to be.

In…
“Behind
.. and out…
“Behind
.. just like the sun…
“Behind
.. but we where almost there…
“Behind
.. as I explained how I saw them…
“Behind
.. to myself by the looks of it wink

Still the ‘Big Guy up above’ must have been listening…
“One
.. because a few minutes later, I was smiling from hear to hear – at this the final result…
“The
.. which may never have happened had the Land Rover started wink

Which it did I’m pleased to say, after a little boast – and so that’s the story behind this image…
“Screen
.. which you can now see on their website – with Claudio & Dianne way in the background too.

So a big thanks to everyone involved here – and especially to the ‘big guy up above’ – because I know I could not have pulled this off without your help smile

To make it look like we did nothing at all.

After shooting the Superior guest rooms – it was up to the top floors to shoot the Executive Suites at the Kilmurry Lodge Hotel.

“The Executive Suites are spacious and contemporary, styled with our guests comfort in mind to ensure complete relaxation.”

Having already recced them back in April, it was this angle…
“One
.. that we had agreed on.

OUR THINKING: “Room 521 – This room as a feminine feel to it – so let’s play on that by adding personal items to suggest that she has just returned from a days shopping.
Nice big flower arrangement as pictured below.
A person in this room would work – clothes dark navy or beige trousers and light long sleeved shirt or light sweater.

Smart casual.”

So with the camera in pretty much the same spot…
“One
.. we when from that to this…
“One
.. after Claudio and Ivan here…
“Behind
.. lit it up, both inside…
“Behind
.. and out…
“Behind
.. while Dianne sat and read a magazine…
“Behind
.. I made some suggestions…
“Behind
.. and took a picture every now and then…
“One
.. because as you can now see on their website…
“Screen
.. we do actually work very hard, to make it look like we did nothing at all wink

The last one was this one…
“One
.. which again was on the top floor.

OUR THINKING: Room 519 – Personal items to suggest a couple.
High tea on​ the coffee table.
1 member of staff either at the window or at the bed.
2nd red strip for over the end of the bed.
Flower arrangement as below or something with a modern feel.

So with the camera in place, we went from this…
“One
.. to this…
“One
.. after the lights had been put up…
“Behind
.. and Claudio did a bit of modelling…
“One
.. which I wasn’t quite sure about…
“Behind
.. although showing off a bit of leg did help…
“Behind
.. after taking a selfie…
“Behind
.. as one naturally would – but we didn’t think any of those looked quite right…
“Behind
.. so sorry Claudio – because as you can see…
“Screen
.. they decided to run without you wink

And so that was it – time to pack…
“Behind
.. and rack…
“Behind
.. but not before the sun came out – so we made the most of that too – because like I said before: we do work very hard…
“Behind
.. to make it look like we do nothing at all smile

Between the showers.

Last month I talked about us shooting one of the new bedroom suites at the Dylan Hotel in Dublin here: Our story behind the story.

Well, we were back recently to shoot a few more, which they had also talked to us about back then – and this was one of them…
“Original
.. which they call the Experience suite.

Our Thinking:
“We like the way we can see through to the bedroom in this angle.
The furniture at present is along one wall – so we will probably move the various pieces around to achieve a more attractive composition.”

So with the camera in basically the same position as before…
“One
.. the team when to work…
“One
.. both inside and outside…
“Behind
.. between the rain showers on this rather grey old day.

Which as you can see…
“One
.. started to look pretty good – just a few final touches…
“Behind
.. and it was time to talk to other model…
“Behind
.. do a test shot…
“One
.. have a think about that and what she should wear…
“Behind
.. then watch…
“Behind
.. Claudio sort out her hair…
“Behind
.. as he is a man of many talents – and this was the result…
“One
.. which I liked, but seemed to be the only one…
“Behind
.. as I was out numbered wink

So when for it again…
“Behind
.. this time with Barry standing in – and so this was the final image…
“The
.. that got the thumbs up – but I still liked this one…
“The
.. so I provided them with both, as well as without anyone in the image – because sometimes I know less is more wink

Then it was up to the top floor to shoot the Studio suite…
“Behind
.. which as you can see had this divide in the middle…
“One
.. which the normal system and lens I use, didn’t seem to be really capturing very well.

So Claudio finally got to see this other system being put to use…
“Behind
.. which he had been dying to see for quite sometime now…
“Behind
.. and so after pressing the button…
“Behind
.. he was finally able to see how much more the 24mm lens was able to capture…
“One
.. when I put the digital back on the Cambo system
“Behind
.. which I would very rarely use – and even when I do, I would usually crop the file like so…
“One
.. as I’m not a big fan of ultra wide angle.

Anyway, in this case I felt I did need to show more…
“Behind
.. and everyone agreed – so that just left a little bit of polishing to be done…
“Behind
.. and there you have it…
“One

“What do you think?”

“Behind
.. because I’m now putting words to these behind images…
“Behind
.. which Claudio is becoming very good at taking smile

Seriously though – I wasn’t looking forward to this one, as I knew from this recce image…
“Original
.. it was going to be a difficult one to capture – but was delighted with this final result…
“The
.. and so were they.

And so that was the bedrooms – which you can now see on their website…
“The

“The
.. alongside many of the other images that I’m pleased to say we produced too smile

Next up was a few exterior shots – which I will talk about another time, because as you can see…
“Behind
.. every picture tells a story.

July 25, 2017

An enchanted castle in wilds of Ireland.

One doesn’t often see this here in Ireland…
“Weather
.. but when you do and you have a Client who is based on the other side of the country, that is wanting an image to help them target the market that they want to appeal to, then one does need to try and make the most of it.

And so it was last Monday, because back in May we had talked to Howard – who’s other 2 castles we had shot before, which I talked about here: How much does it cost to take a picture – about shooting Markree Castle here…
“Drive
.. which is partially moated by the River Unshin, as seen here…
“River
.. in County Sligo – and is one of four castles that are listed under Romantic Castles Ireland.

So this was one of the 2 images he was looking for: “An enchanted castle in wilds of Ireland – away from it all.”

Anyway, July was the month we were waiting for, as the other image he was after was this one…
“Garden
.. which was at the back – “The perfect venue for your wedding” – and so we obviously wanted the garden to be in full bloom… hence July, as that is when it will be looking it’s best.

So 2 shots: one was a morning shot, the other was an evening shot – so the ideal situation would be to shoot the front one showing the river in the evening, stay overnight and then do the garden and terrace area at the back in the morning – as I reckoned the one at the front would need to be shot at around 8pm and the one at the back would be around 8am.

That would be ideal – and could have worked out just like that here too, bar the fact that there was a wedding on, and they had booked the entire place for both Monday & Tuesday.

Anyway, a decision had to be made, because like I said at the start, you don’t see a weather forecast like that very often here in Ireland – and so I emailed both Howard and Claudio that morning to say:

“Car is packed – so I’m going to go for it – as it could be another few weeks before we see sunshine like this again, according to the forecast.
So I should there around 6pm.”

To which Claudio replied:

“Perfect! I’ll be there at about the same time.
Will they get the props u think?”

The ‘props’ he was referring to was, of course, the outfits for the fisherman and the people on the horses – which they had talked about here…
“Concept
.. in reply to “Our Thinking” back in May – when all of this was discussed and they had told us who they were wanting this image to appeal to, as well as what they wanted it to say to that market, etc, etc.

Anyway, I emailed Claudio back to say:

“Don’t think they will be there – so anything you can get your hands on would be great.
The main thing is the castle… everything else is an extra”

Howard did, however, email back to say that the hotel management had been informed about us coming and that a fisherman had been organised and would be there at around 6pm too.

So with a 4 hour drive ahead, I hit the road – and about 30 minutes later I received an email from Claudio to say:

“Boots, trousers and rod sorted.”
“Props

To which I replied:

“Excellent stuff – now just need a few people on horses to ride past.
Seriously though – it’s the castle looking good that is all important here – so will be giving it my best shot”

Anyway, I arrived around 5:30pm and immediately set up the camera and started to shoot – because as you can see here…
“First
.. the sun was already hitting the front of the castle.

Close to prefect, I reckoned – as I didn’t want the sun to come around too much behind me, as that would then start to make it look flat. So basically that was it – one click and I was done wink

So by the time Claudio arrived, I was nowhere to be seen…
“Behind
.. but was obviously still around – as I’d clearly given the shirt of my back
“Behind
.. to do a bit of fishing instead wink

Away, new shirt on and back behind the camera…
“Behind
.. as Claudio helped the member of staff into the waders and boots…
“Behind
.. before he ventured in…
“Behind
.. to help complete the story.

Perfect timing too…
“Behind
.. so I snapped away…
“Behind
.. each time he throw the line out…
“Behind
.. which with the Flexbody, is like one frame per second minute wink

Still, I only needed one frame – and this was it…
“Behind
.. as he finally managed to get the hang of it – and was actually starting to enjoy it too, before he lost the weight.

Add a few puffy white clouds – as one would expect to see that here in Ireland – and this was the final result:
“Markree

“Excellent stuff – now just need a few people on horses to ride past.”

– was still at the back of my mind as we began to pack – when all of a sudden Claudio spotted 2 girls on their horses down by the river.

So I grabbed the 503…
“Behind
.. and started to shot…
“Behind
.. because this was the image I had in mind all along…
“Markree
.. as Howard had originally said:

“I think this one featuring a fisherman and a horseman would work.”

Or what about walking along the path Claudio…
“Behind
.. or better still, along the road…
“Behind
.. as that would be much easier for me to create an image like this…
“Markree
.. or even this…
“Markree
.. although that may all be a bit to much – as it now looks like you are no longer away from it all – which was part of the original message I was trying to say here.

Anyway, the best shot of the day was this one…
“Behind
.. as far as I was concerned – although this one is pretty good too…
“Behind
.. so would just like to say a Big Thanks to Claudio for all his help here – as well as for these two wonderfully images to complete the story – because even if no-one else likes them, I love them – as this is what I call “living the dream” at an enchanted castle in wilds of Ireland – away from it all smile
