We first noticed Bekah almost two years ago to this month. She popped up on Model Mayhem and we had to say hello and see if she would come shoot with us, but unfortunately she was only 16 at the time so the last thing we said was 'touch base with us in two years time!'. It is amazing how quick time goes by because two years later we got a mail, and here is our 18 year old Bekah in the box shots! Bekah is an absolute natural and we will be seeing a lot more of her if she is happy to come back to us!
We have worked with Spunky for years since she moved to Ireland from Italy but now she is moving on and we had to get her in one last time. Spunky is leaving us to move to Berlin and this is her last shoot before she goes. To say Spunky has an extensive and 'odd' lingerie wardrobe is an understatement so when she turned up with a leather tail we didn't even bat an eyelid! Best of luck in your travels, we will miss working with you.
We had some excitement this week and some very special guests! The new TV series with Timothy Dalton, Eva Green, Josh Hartnett and Billy Piper Penny Dreadful was filmed in our studio all week. We were not allowed to say anything but now it is over we can show you a few shots!
Can you believe it was nearly 5 years ago when we first met Deirdre for the Carnival series and since that she has been in nearly every major series we have ever worked on... There are only one or two models that are that versatile and adaptable. As always a pleasure to work with and the shots are fantastic.
Shannon is a new model to the scene and tonight with Carl it was her first studio shoot. Carl worked with her for the box series and the shots really speak for themselves. Shannon's look is strong confident and we think she is a natural. We really hope to have her back in again soon so we can work a little more with her, perhaps on the light leak series.
Helen and Sarah had a very special project on today. Helen brought her daughter Holly in and Sarah was in her element playing and shooting her. Carl stole one quick shot at the very end but getting a three year old to stand still is an art form! This is the first and only time we have had anyone under 18 in the studio!
Sarah was working with the fantastic Síofradh tonight and Carl stole a shot for his Box series again! Síofradh is relatively new to the scene but we think she has a big future, her confidence and experience shine through and the final shots speak for themselves.
We had the great pleasure of working with the very talented Suzanne Moran tonight. Suzanne has been modelling for a long time and her experience really shows, we are just waiting for an opportunity to work with her again!
Grace is moving to the UK for college and we knew we had to have her back in again before she left. We go a bunch of shots we are working through for both the Box and the Light Leak series. Hopefully we will get to work with Grace when she is back on holidays.
Tonight Sarah Murphy was shooting a new Model Holly Meade and Carl stole a quick shot fro his box series. Hopefully it will not be too long before we have Holly back in again.
Well done to Carl Farmer for recieving his PSA ribbon for the 'Crazy' shot in the TPS salon this year.
Every year at Christmas Carl organises a 'Christmas Special' shoot where all the stops are pulled out and everything is thrown into one big shoot... This year was no different, Carl and Jon had been building and painting the Christmas set for weeks, Jon built all the props and the Santa conveyor belt and then it was just down to planning it all out. Carl had an idea to work from the "What are little boys made of? Slugs and snails And puppy-dogs' tails" nursery rhyme and elaborated it out to what does Santa make your presents from! We had a hopper with Body parts going in and Presents coming out a couple of unwilling helper elves and some donor body parts in the box below waiting to be turned into presents. We had about 10 odd people in the background eating mince pies and cake! All in all this is one of the most enjoyable shoots we have done in a very long time and the tradition of a Christmas Special has well and truly been kept alive this year.
We had the great pleasure to work with a new model, Zonia Reed today. Zonia is originally from Thailand but is living and working over here now. We took advantage of a gap in her hectic schedule to get her in to shoot one of the box shots and we expect to see a lot more of her over the coming months.
Helen was back in with us again today and she brought her sister Emily along for her first shoot ever. Helen really stepped up to the mark with this latest series of shots for the box series and it was a real pleasure to get to work with Emily. We hope to see both of them back again soon.
Tonight we had the great pleasure of working with Merrin for her first shoot and she brought along some friends including Trisha Leslie so we had to take advantage of both of them together for one of the box shots. We were very impressed with Merrin and I think a little Christmas surprise is in order, more to follow!
It was only a matter of time before we had Belle De Faux in for a Box shot and as usual we were not disappointed. This is one of the only shots from the series that we processed in colour as well as mono and I think it was worth it.
ALia was in again today for one of the Light Leak shots and as usual she really delivered. Alia is one to watch and we look forward to finding another excuse to work with her again soon.
Sarah had Rachel Lally in today with Rachel Wyse doing makeup for one of her feather fashion shots and the end results speak for themselves.
Well done to everyone involved, great shots.
Tonight Carl Farmer had the great privilege to talk and show his work in Palmerstown Camera Club. Fantastic club with a talented and enthusiastic bunch of members. If you are in the area, you should definitely check them out www.palmerstowncameraclub.ie
Tania and Maik have shot together a couple of times and Carl was looking for an opportunity to work with her. Tonight we had Tania Notaro in for one of the box shoots and it was great to finally meet and work together.
