February Photography Courses

Wondering what kind of things we'll be looking at on our intro level photography workshop on Saturday February 8th? It could look a little something like this: * What is everyone's experience with photography and what does everyone want to get from the day? * File format discussion: RAW, PSD, JPEG, TIFF --> file importation and best management * Introduction to basic studio lighting * Hands on portrait session working with model/subject where you learn (and try out yourself) the fundamentals of taking a good portrait * Basic overview of managing files in Photoshop * And plenty of time to ask about all the things you ever wanted to know about photography..! Wondering what we look like in action? It could look a little something like this: Behind the Scenes on shoot with Barry Would you like to snap up one of the last remaining spots?

Samsung Young Designer of the Year 2013

A couple of months back I was asked to join the panel to judge Samsung's Young Designer of the Year competition for Dublin Fashion Festival 2013, and subsequently photograph the winning piece During the judging, as soon as I saw the winning design and how sculptural it is - almost like a piece of art - I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I lit the shot to really bring out the detail and the organic shape of the piece. It was great to work with a new and exciting designer and we wish Claire Lynam all the best going forward. I'm sure we'll be working with her again in the future!
