CANDY: The no issue theme issue

Second Birthday Edition
Download: Candy Issue 8 Part One | Part Two

me and Corina did this shoot for Candy AAAAGES ago. The model on this shoot is Emma from 1st Option who is amazing. Spotted her at LA MakeUp academy where she came in to do a test shot and I knew right away I wanted her for this. Thankfully she wasn't too busy at school (she is only 16) and was able to shoot with us. This was her first ever photoshoot.

Miss Ireland, Blathnaid McKenna, and Former Miss Ireland, Sarah Morrissey on Saturday Night with Miriam

This was Blathnaid's first appearance on national television as Miss Ireland. She spoke about the hectic week coming up to the final and was joined on the couch by the outgoing Miss Ireland, Sarah Morrissey, who spoke about giving up the crown - and her hilarious attempt at becoming an actress!

I recently shot the most gorgeous and so so lovely Blathnaid- shots will be up shortly..

out and about

Was out and about all day yesterday shooting for Irish Tatler, and today for The Sunday Tribune.. it's nice to get out of the studio every once in a while and do some spontanious photoshoots. I'm so used to thinking about my ideas in advance, and preparing and researching concepts and outfits, and hair and makeup and poses.. So this kinda stuff is completely different. You still have to be creative even though there isn't much room for creativity. The shot can't just look like a boring snapshot, even though you shoot it in 5 mins (max!) and only come up with the shot in the space of 2 seconds. The challange is completely different.
This and last week I also shot loads of new faces which came out of the Miss Ireland contest. Here is gorgeous Miss Velvet Julie Devine.

The awesome Johnny sent me these links yesterday so I thought I would share. You know the times when you watch TV and there is a photoshoot on TV and you get all excited because they are showing the lighting setup but then they only show it for 2 seconds so you can't really see where the 3rd reflector is and you wish they's show it again for longer but then they don't so you get all annoyed? no? i am a geek. Well here are some interesting setups.
