RTE’s ‘My Big Day: Home or Away’s Tara Fay and Bruce Russell in Studio

RTE’s My Big Day : Home or Away’s Tara Fay and Bruce Russell in Studio.

I recently had the pleasure of shooting Tara Fay and Bruce Russell from RTE’s ‘My Big Day: Home or Away’.

My Big Day: Home or Away is an exciting and entertaining original format for RTÉ2 where one couple is given the services of two top class wedding planners.  One planner arranges a wedding at home, in Ireland, one plans a wedding away, somewhere fabulous and foreign. If you have caught an episode of the show, you will know the two top tier wedding planners are full of personality. This made for a great shoot in studio. 

Its always a pleasure working on promo’s for RTE shows, as we have done in the past.

Thank you to a great team on the day and i’ll let the images speak for themselves!

Wella Professionals Style Council Shoot

It’s always a treat to work with creatives. We teamed up with Leonardo Rizzo, international creative for Sanrizz, on this year’s shoot for the Wella Professionals Style Council.

The concept for the shoot was Parklife, an urban space where the next generation gather to express their individual styles. We really enjoyed shooting this collection of bold and unique looks.

Post-production: Dylan Madden.

Styling: Alison Conneely.

Make-up: Leonard Daly.

Louise Kennedy AW18 fashion by Barry McCall Photographer

Louise Kennedy AW18 Fashion Shoot

We always love working on Louise Kennedy’s seasonal fashion collection shoots. Beautiful designs and a great crew always makes for a good day.

For the AW18 shoot, we had an extra component in the mix  – an absolutely stunning location. The shoot took place at a private office in Dublin city, with interior design by Roisin and her team at Kingston Lafferty Design.

As a photographer, it’s always an extra thrill to have access to hidden gem locations for shoots.

So enjoyed working on this with Catherine Condell on styling, Zoe Clark on make-up, Michael Leong on hair, Dylan Madden on post-production and our girl Romana Balazova.

They are always some of the most fun and vibrant shoots we get to do. The ‘Maxximum Style’ campaign for TK Maxx was no exception.

We photographed a great bunch of people, who express themselves through a unique sense of personal style.

Such a pleasure to shoot with stylists Courtney Smith and Cathy O’Connor, and creative Jake McCabe from Cüpl Creative.
