The Chinese Drawing Room.

“So what do you think…
Behind the scenes during the shoot at the K Club in County Kildare
.. not bad I guess…

.. but how much will it cost me…

.. just work us all into the ground over the next few days, Ashley, and it’s all yours.

You’ve got to be joking, Ivan – then let’s shake on it…

.. because you’ve got yourself a deal” smile

Yes we were back at the fabulous K Club and what an amazing place it is – but joking aside, I would first really like to say a big thanks to my team here, because they really did go the extra mile for me on this one, as they never stopped from sun up to sun down.

So yes we were back once again – this time to capture rooms like this…
Recce shot of the Chinese Drawing Room at the K Club in County Kildare.
.. which they called the ‘Chinese Drawing Room’ – which they wanted to show set for high tea.

So with the camera in place, we started to move the furniture around a bit…

.. as we didn’t really want to be looking at the back of the sofa.

Then checking the screen to see how that looked…

.. and then – well we basically turned the room upside down…

.. but as you can see we were starting to get here…

.. as it was basically naturally lit…

.. with a little help from what the guys had set-up outside smile

So inside it was decision time, now that all the furniture was basically in place – white table clothes or not…

.. was the question – and so the ironing begun…

.. followed by more test shots…

.. with Susie and Dianne standing in – followed by Claudio and Ivan having a go…

.. and then there was more ironing to be done…

.. before Denise (who recently got married here it seems) arrived to become The Star of the show – as Ivan…

.. Dianne…

.. and even Claudio here…

.. all seemed very eager to make her smile – before I stepped in to show them all how it was done…

.. which obviously took the smile right off her face smile

Seriously though – one last look at the screen with Oral here…

.. to show the Chinese Drawing Room – at the fabulous Kildare Hotel, Spa & Country Club in the beautiful Irish county of Kildare.

Delighted – and so were they – which means we had only 9 more to go, before they would tell us to pack our bags and go home – which one obviously doesn’t want to do, when you are staying (or even working) at a place like this smile

Anyway, next up was the Liffey Deluxe River View bedroom – which was on the far side of the hotel – so for now that’s it, from Dianne, Claudio, Ivan & me @ ampimage.com

The Imperial Suite.

This week we where shooting at The K Club near Straffan in County Kildare – as they had just recently refurbished two of their top bedroom suites.

So we kicked off in the Imperial Suite – which as you can see from even this first image was pretty amazing…

.. so while thought about what we should do here, as I looked at first images on screen…

.. Dianne started working on the flowers…

.. while Claudio took some pictures…

.. of us looking like we knew what we were doing smile.

Anyway, after Claudio had set-up the light outside the far window…

.. and we had moved the furniture a bit, so as I could see the fireplace – the girls set the table…

.. while I looked on…

.. before the finishing touches were added…

.. and then it was time for Susie (the sales and marketing manager) to have a look at the final result…

.. which at the end was this…
The drawing and dining room in the Imperial Suite at the Kildare Hotel Spa & Golf Club near Straffan in County Kildare.
.. after I added a bit more to the top & bottom, as they will be wanting to use this image in various media over the years.

And so that it – as it was time to set-up the next shot, as our star guests were about to arrive, so more on that later on – but for now that was one part of the Imperial Suite in the bag.

From Dianne, Claudio & me – living the dream, as we create the dream, at the amazing K Club smile.
