I reclaimed the space.

Is the title of our most recent published work in the February 2015 issue of Style at Home magazine…
Pages 74 to 76 in the February 2015 issue of Style at Home magazine featuring Donna Wilson's guest room above her garage near Greenisland in County Antrim.
.. on pages 74 to 76 – featuring Donna Wilson’s guest room above her garage near Greenisland in County Antrim.

‘A disused den is now a guest room and snug for Stylist at Home Donna, 50, from Belfast’.

Which we talked about shooting here: Back in action.

And even our Stuart, who often assistants us on various shoots, also got a wee plug…

‘My brother Stuart McNamara is an artist and I love these circus-theme pictures’.

.. which was also great to see – as I do love his style as well.

Anyway, another great start to the New Year – and so would just like to say congratulations to Donna here…

Back in action.

Well, it’s been a while – mainly due to me not being well, which is another story – but anyway, we were back in action this week…
Setting up the shot in Donna Wilson's guest room above her garage near Greenisland in County Antrim.
.. shooting a room which Donna, a good friend of Marie & Stuart, had been working on above her garage.

So it was just like old times – ‘Deep in thought’ as Stuart said here when he sent this image through…
Deep in thought.
.. of the girls studying the image on the laptop screen, while I’m trying to figure out how to work the camera by the looks of things wink

Anyway, both Stuart & Marie worked their magic….

.. and so before long the first image of Donna, sitting so as not to disturb the cushions…

.. was in the bag.

Then it was detailed shots…

.. which Stuart once again titled ‘Many hands’…

.. which they did indeed make light work here…

.. and so before long we were almost done.

Still, there was the return angle to shoot – so Marie took a quick picture with her iPad here…

.. to show us all that she felt should be the shot.

So while I set-up the camera to see what it would look like…

.. Marie explained her vision of how she saw it:

“Bathroom door closed – grey sofas just cutting in each side – cushions on white day bed framing the shot 🙂
Graphic/Classy.”

Right – so how about this…

.. was my thinking – which by the look on Marie’s face here…

.. wasn’t quite what she was thinking wink

Anyway, it was good to be back – and finish with my personal favorite image…

.. which I’m hoping the editors will like too.

So this is just a wee note from me to say thank you to all of you guys – and especially to Donna for inviting us in – an amazing job, so thank you.
