Portraits at Killruddery

At the start of the year Aoife (who is a lyrical genius… aka singer) got in touch with me to have her portrait taken. She wanted a mix of shots for her portfolio, promotional material etc. We decided to shoot in the beautiful Killruddery house & gardens in Bray, Co Wicklow. We got really lucky that morning and were given a fantastic sun filled day in early January. It was an absolute blast skipping around the forests and creating some beautiful shots – it reminded me of the movie The Secret Garden (Does anybody else remember that film?).

Everything was shot with natural light and the odd reflector. Looking forward to grabbing a pint with Aoife when she gets back from studying in Wales!

Mens Fashion Ireland Photoshoot

Last month I was asked to shoot the cover of a new magazine, MFI – Mens Fashion Ireland. The concept & art direction was left open so I had free rein on the shoot. The week before the shoot, Mens Fashion Ireland & Assets Model Agency teamed up to run a competition to become a signed model for a year. They took to the streets of Dublin scouting for the best male model – The winner was Riccardo Nardini. Riccardo was fantastic on the day, he had never modeled before and he sure could have fooled us!

A night in Glendalough, Wicklow

Landscape Glendalough Adventure 16

The last few months have seen me disappear into the ether. As some of you may know, I am in my last year of college & it has taken over my life. Last week I handed up a big chunk of my thesis(about halfway there) and Shirls finished some BIG exams, so we trotted off to Glendalough for a few nights. It was amazing!! If you know me, you know I LOVE GLENDALOUGH, it’s one of my favourite places in the world. We stayed in the Glendaloch International Hostel where we could hike to the lakes, up to the Spinc and off to dinner at night. It’s exactly what we needed!

These are taken quite late on our arrival the first night. I was dying to see the upper lake so we went up there in the pitch dark, nada but moonlight & high high ISO.

We stopped for a little bit of fun and photography training where I taught Shirls a bit on how to focus and always placing your subject perfectly centre frame everytime hehe.

Then the roles reversed and Shirls taught me some Yoga in the woods. What a magical day!

Do you ever have one of those shoots planned that look like they will never happen? This was one of those. The idea first came to mind nearly 10 months ago. Every time we would set a shoot date either there was a location/model problem. Thankfully we got to shoot this three weeks ago. A huge thank you to all the talent, everybody was amazing on the day!!!

Dream Series

The following is the first shot from the Dream series I am currently working on. I’m having an absolute blast coming up with lots of different ideas and trying to figure out if how to put everything together for each shot. I will follow these all up with behind the scenes and a bit more information about how each shot was created. The next dream should be up in about a month.

Wedding :: Elizabeth & Philip at the Zetland Hotel Galway

Last July I had the pleasure of photographing Elizabeth & Philips wedding at the beautiful Zetland hotel in Galway. What a beautiful day! There was so much thought and effort put into making this day as amazing as it was. Throughout the day there was a friendly and loving energy, one that only exists when really close family & friends come together for a celebration!

A few words about the day from Philip & Elizabeth.

Testimony from Philip & Elizabeth

Kyle shot our wedding in the West of Ireland in the summer of 2012. He came highly recommended, and deserved all of it and more. He met with us a week before the wedding to get to know us, our style, and what we wanted from him – our wedding was to be very informal and relaxed, and we didn’t want any stuffy poses or intricate artistic approaches – all we wanted was a natural, fun set of pictures, with a contemporary feel. What he produced met all those requests and more – but Kyle went way beyond, bringing his own ideas to the day that elevated our photos into something wonderful that we hadn’t expected. He has a wonderfully fun, relaxed and charming manner, but is a total professional and very well organized (he scouted our entire location the day before, and had two alternate plans for the day depending on available time, weather and light). The photos he finally delivered (digitally, as I had requested) were artistically composed, well lit and exposed, well edited and colour graded, and most especially, truly captured everyone’s happiness on our wedding day. There isn’t one photo in which he didn’t capture us, the way we are. If you’re getting married, have Kyle shoot your wedding – I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job.
