One of the things I love about my hobby is all the new great people I meet and work with. I often visit Ireland and shoot with other photographers, on this occasion I was visiting the talented photographer and ace location finder that is Joe Doyle. Our model for the day was the lovely Anete, who is a stunning model as well as very talented photographer , and who made a very long journey to get to the shoot, for which I am extremely grateful. Another new friend was Graham Cashell, a relative newcomer to model photography who is extremely enthusiastic, and I look forward to seeing more of his great work in the future.
I think Joe must have kissed the Blarney Stone on many occasions, as he manages to persuade so many people to let us shoot in their wonderful locations, this was an old house with beautiful textures and amazing features, thank you Joe :)
The only thing better than one Anete it two Anetes, courtesy of a big mirror.
I love the contrasts here between the textures of the wall and the grandeur of the mirror and painting in the background, with Anete doing a great pose in the fireplace.
Another great pose from Anete, and here I’m concentrating more on her as well as including some of the great environment.
I take a lot of care in getting the composition just right, and I though this selection of art on the wall set off Anete beautifully.
And a wider shot.
This image is all about the lovely tones, the light on Anete’s body and the composition of the various elements.
And I quite like this one with the aged shutters.
Many thanks to Anete for being such a super model, and I hope we get we work together again in the near future.
