I’ve produced a lot of new images over the past months, and given that around half of my shoots are with the versatile Lulu Lockhart it’s no surprise that many of the images are of her. I usually do two blog posts a month, so around 24 per year, and since only 4 of those posts last year were about my images created with her, I’ve built up a bit of a backlog of our images, which I shall remedy over the next few months. I’ll also share images from all the other great models I’ve worked with as well, and may increase my posting rate to catch up.
I shall be using a lot of my new images to enter exhibitions given that I will be restarting my FIAP journey. I stopped after they instantly doubled the requirements as discussed in a previous blog post. Now the requirements are more sensible the EFIAP/p is just a quick sprint away, and I should be applying at the end of this year.
I shall also be printing a lot of my new images to include in my talk, and I’ve created a page on this website listing where I shall be showing my prints as a number of people have enquired about this.
Onto the Lulu images, we’ll start with the Connor Pass, one of the highest mountain passes that you can drive over in Ireland, and extremely beautiful. I’ve been over it a number of times whilst on Holiday, and it always seems to be misty, and so it was when I was there with Lulu. Perfect conditions for producing an image, very cold and windy for Lulu who was professional as ever.
Country Kerry was also the location for this beautiful sunset, taken literally yards from the cottage we were staying in which looked over Kenmare Bay.
This niche would probably at one stage have housed a statue, so this was our attempt at a recreation of what it may have looked like :)
While my first image on this table was very popular and successful, we produced many great images on it, including these two which are a bit different. The second image here is probably my favourite of the three shots I have so far processed from this set.
I hadn’t planned to shoot over the Christmas period, but the temptation was too great, and with Lulu only an hour away I succumbed to a quick shoot, which was extremely productive as well as being most enjoyable, and satisfied my shoot cravings for the time being ;-)
Here’s a couple of the many great images we produced.
I get so much pleasure and satisfaction from producing images, thank you Lulu for creating these super images with me, and I look forward to meeting lots of fellow photographers at my talks.
