The lovely Bekah is back in with us for another of the SinCity inspired shots and she was amazing. This series is taking on a life of its own and the shots are really starting to work out. We have a bunch more of these planned for the next week or two!
The amazingly multi-talented Matt from Chunk.ie joined us for the fist shot of a new series called ~The Collector~ and we are absolutely blown away with the potential of these shots! Gemma from Forget Me Not makeup and Hayley who was in recently for the Box Series really stepped up to the mark and got behind where we were going with this one. Carl and Jon had been working away on the set and the morgue for weeks and today was the unavailing. We are really pleased with these and the next shoot is already booked in for next week so stay tuned!
The lovely Alia joins us tonight for another of the SinCity shoots and she did not disappoint us with her commitment to getting this one right. We are really pleased with the way these have turned out and I think there will be plenty more of them to come!
The SinCity shoots are a whole lot of fun that we didn't expect. From winning a bid on eBay for a set of genuine 1970's chaps to shooting a whole new mini series was never in the timeline. We have so much to fit into this summer and the calender is already packed that fitting in a bunch of new shoots is never easy, but these shots have turned out so well, and the models involved like Helen in this one have gotten behind them to produce some fantastic work that we need to find space for them somewhere!
We had the lovely Naomi in again today for some more Sinful Behavior. We had so much fun with Danielle last week doing the Sin City shoot that we decided to do a few more of them. Naomi was the perfect choice for this one and we love where these new shots are going.
We were very pleased to get to work with the stunning Christie Gabriel while she was visiting Ireland from the US. Christie has been published in some of the biggest named magazines out there and has worked with some of the best in the business so it was amazing to get to work with her.
The lovely Greici joined us tonight for the latest in the Box series and as always it was a pleasure to work with her.
Today we got to do something we have wanted to do for a while, we did a Sin City inspired shoot with the lovely Danielle Marie Christie. This brought together some really cool aspects from processing to pose and lighting. This was a lot of fun and Dannie was fantastic as usual.
Something a little different for us, we ended up at the Rally in Clonakilty Co. Cork for the weekend. The weather was stunning and the Rally was really good this year winding its way through some of the best countryside in the county.
Polly is new to Modelling but we expect to see a lot more of her over the coming months. We had the pleasure of working with her on the Box series tonight and the shots turned out really nicely.
Rachel was looking for someone to shoot her and Biggie a huge python snake so we volunteered! This was not the first time we had a snake in the studio, a couple of years ago for the Carnival Series we shot the same type snake so we know what we were letting ourselves in for!
Marie Misfit came to Carl with an idea she had been working on with the lovely Helen. They wanted to do an anatomical body painting shot showing the heart and rib cage and they arrived at the studio ready to shoot!
Raphaella was back in town for a workshop and we stole her for a few hours in the evening for the box project. It never ceases to amaze me how versatile Raphaella is and how many different looks she can pull off in a single shoot. We love working with her and we can't wait to have her in again soon.
Eddie Kavanagh from Palmerstown Camera Club contacted Carl about an idea he had for a shoot and considering it was valentines weekend and it involved a heart we jumped at the idea to get involved. Eddie is working on a series of shots for his IPF A panel and wanted to have a go a shot that was a little darker and more along the lines of what Carl shoots so they got to planning. Carl enlisted Belle de Faux for Model and Makeup and got the lovely Suzanne Moran back in to play our baddie and the 'Bloody Valentine' shot came to life. Thanks to Eddie for letting us be part of this shoot.
The lovely Vajola joined us tonight for another of the box shots and it was a real pleasure to get to work with her. We hope to have Vajola back in the studio again soon.
Baz Black asked us to do a shoot for him and vagranttoroyalty.com and we could not say no! The filming of Penny Dreadful had just finished up in the studio so we got to use their backdrops and set before they tore it all down. Check out vagranttoroyalty.com for more or their clothing and images.
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.
