Damian McGillicuddy - 'Polish Your Portfolio'

Hello everyone,

After catching up on sleep from the busy couple of weeks I have had, I thought I would let you in on how my wedding shoot went with Damian Mcgliicuddy.

The shoot was set in a gorgeous room at the Lowry hotel in Manchester. The exquisite decor and modern art contributed to the elegance of the shoot.

The ‘Polish your portfolio’ class was carried out in two sessions. The sessions were 3 hours long and each had 5 delegates who were eager to learn.

The shoot itself ranged from bathrobe to bridal gown. We carried out a number of poses in each outfit of which the delegates then got to shoot and direct me if they wished. It was a very enjoyable day and everybody seemed to learn new things and came away happy.

It was my first time in a wedding dress and boy are they heavy, I felt as if I was carrying a small child on my back. But, never the less it’s clear that the results are awesome so it is enjoy

Alison Bailey - Second Shoot

Hello Again,

Final blog for the week until Sunday you’ll be pleased to know :)

I had a shoot with Alison Bailey on the 14/04/2010 down in Stockport. I first met Alison when up in Bathgate modelling for a Yerbury’s boudoir workshop, thankfully I must of impressed Alison and she decided that she would like to work with me again.

The initial idea of the shoot was to create some of Alison’s own boudoir images. The shoot went really well and had a lot of variety in it.

We initially started the shoot in Alison’s home where she had set up a studio in one of her spare bedrooms. The pictures looked great and the set up was divine. We also had a play with some Venetian masks. Absolutely Fabulous is all’s I can say.

After lunch we headed down to a studio near Alison’s home which was, massive! I could not believe the size of it. Here we were creating an idea that Alison had had by using a projector to create patterns on my skin. We went for a tiger affect and i must say with Sarah’s (mua) help to create a main the results looked fabulous.

We continued to use the studio to carry out some art nudes and last but not least we used a spotlight to create some Hollywood style glamour images.

I really enjoyed the shoot and Alison seemed pleased. I hope to work with her again soon. I can’t wait to see the results! and as always, when I will also.

Damian McGillicuddy - Mentor Me...On Steroids

Hello again all,

I’ve been very busy this week so I’m catching up with my blog. I had a shoot on the 13/04/2010 down in Warrington with Damian Mcgillicuddy for his mentor me on steroids classes.

The tutorial was taking place shooting outdoors with natural light, as luck would have it... even though when i was travelling there the sun was blazing once we started shooting it was hidden and became rather chilly.

This didn’t stop the enthusiasm of the group though, I had a lovely time and some of the pictures looked awesome!

Thank you Guys ;)

RebeccaAmy vs Elfin - Peter Ferguson

Hello everyone,

Just thought id update you on my latest shoots, I had a shoot on Monday 12/04/2010 with Peter Ferguson known as (doodyone) on Net-model and also Laurie who is known as (Elfin) on net-model.

The shoot was held at Malmaison hotel in Manchester. Although the traffic is a bloody nightmare!, once I got there it was well worth it, the location was absolutely stunning.

For the shoot we were trying to create tasteful seduction scenes between myself and Laurie. The shoot went really well and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

From what I seen of the back of the camera some of the pictures worked really well and I can’t wait to see them! I’ll be sure to update you once i have received them

For now,

McGillicuddy - Digital SLR Magazine Shoot.

Hello My Lovely Blog Followers,

Since I last blogged Mr. Mcgillicuddy I have worked with him on two occasions! Lucky me hey? :)

Both shoots were for an article in the photography magazine; 'Digital SLR' in which Damian will be writing about lighting and all other photographer technicalities..I just nod and pretend I know about all that stuff :)

There will be a six page spread in the June edition. This means it will be in the shops by May. I suggest you preorder your copies to prevent any sell out dissapointment on the day :P

Part one of the magazine shoot took place on the 27/03/2010 at Damian’s studio. Well, in the surrounding areas... The images look amazing but I guess you'l find that out for yourselves in May/June :)

Part two took place on the 04/04/2010. Yes, that’s right... Easter Sunday! I cant help my dedication, its just who I am :) lol. The shoot took place in Manchester at the docks. It was absolutely freezing but looking at the back of the camera it was well worth it!

Damian also treated me to lunch :) KFC! mmm KFCCC! and...we seen David Haye's car in the carpark :)

Once we had finished eating we headed back to Damian’s studio. One of the briefs for the magazine article was to involve natural light within the picture. Although we had a bit of sun down at the docks it wasn’t much so we decided to give it another shot in sunny Warrington.

As soon as I see the images they'll be getting keep on coming back :)

New Online Magazine - Des Fildes & Boo Jenkinson

Hello everybody,

Just updating you all on my recent activity because I have been busy, busy! I had a shoot on Monday 29/03/2010 with Des Fildes, in Manchester.

The aim of the shoot was to create a logo for a new online magazine that will be launched soon. Not a lot of information has been released about the magazine, but from what I have managed to reveal...its similar in style to 'Front.'

The shoot was so fun and enjoyable. Stylist and makeup artist; Boo Jenkinson, had been shopping prior to the shoot to allow various styles and sets to be shot. The primary style of the shoot was to put a modern twist on 1950’s pinup girl style.

From what I seen the pictures looked awesome. I can’t wait to see them properly and ill be sure to update you when the website is launched.

I'll attach the only picture I have seen from the shoot below for your viewing pleasure.
