MARCH 6TH 2016 : Setting up a photo shoot for a new book

Costumes at the ready

Costumes at the ready

I have been busy this week setting up a photo shoot for a new book I am working on. I have been very lucky to have had assistance from some very kind people. Pat from the Lyric Theatre has been very patient with me during our meetings regarding the sort of clothing I needed in relation to the characters. The book is set in the 1920"s in Co.Kerry and Pat who is the head of the wardrobe department had everything set out for me by Friday afternoon which was totally on point as the shoot was on Sat morning. 

I would also like to thank Máire Andrews who was responsible for arranging all the models. I have to say, she really did a great job making the whole event relaxed and completely enjoyable.

This is only the first session as there will be around 60 illustrations in this title and as models get tired we felt it best that we stagger the photography aspect of this work over a couple of sessions.
