Romantic Galway Bay ..... and coming soon ......

|

Hi Folks

I mentioned in my last post that we had some pretty major hotel shoots coming up ..... when Ashley first asked me to work with him on hotel shoots, I wasn't actually sure what my role would be - when all's said and done, hotels are all sitting up perfectly - do they really need an Interior Stylist ???? But in many ways, they are no different to a home shoot - the camera sees things differently to the eye so it's all about keeping an eye on the composition of the shot and ensuring the detail is 'picture perfect' .....

Added to that - most hotels now want a little bit of their personality to show in the images - so we are often asked to include people in the shots and a little bit of "lifestyle" .......

Anyway, we are just back from shooting an hotel in Galway Bay - looooong hours, but thankfully it all went well. I just thought this one might make you smile .....

 

This type of shot is hugely important to any hotel that attracts weddings ...... in this particular case, we decided that in order to get the right sort of light, we should set it up at sunrise ....... so there we were at 5.00 am (on a different balcony) calling out instructions to the bride and groom - and also to our assistant Claudio who was working the lighting - he was down near the beach area ......

Anyway - apparently a lady who had left her bedroom window open, heard the commotion and looked out  .... and said later to one of the lovely member's of staff - "John, was I dreaming or did I really see a Bride and Groom at 5.00 am this morning ?" To which he replied with a smile "no more wine for you tonight methinks" :)

Our website for this type of work is www.ampimage.com

Our next hotel shoot will shortly be in the fabulous K Club.

But back to 'Natural Calico Land' - and I am delighted to say that Stuart has been busy and has some new work for us ......

So, we shall aim to get these onto the site shortly.

Hope you enjoyed the long weekend folks ..... 

Take Care
