Claire O Connor – Autumn/Winter 2010 “Couture” shoot
Our Couture shoot is Front Cover and editorial of “Life” magazine” in the Sunday Independent on Sunday 21st November 2010
A project we put together for the amazing designer Claire O Connor and her “Couture” collection , the theme was based in around the lord of the rings / Narnia films and on a fine day in august we created a autumn/winter set in a small wooded area in wicklow, our lighting crew arrived at 7am and starting to position the lighting in their rightful places and were then joined by our special effects team to complete the magical set we had watched grow from a drawing to reality .you know you have achieved something special when several crew at one stage had admitted their heart had stopped with what they were witnessing ,an excellent combination of the right lighting, real special effects and a very professional team, the results speak for themselves.
The interesting thing about this project was we had started planning a set indoors and had trees,props, dogs etc booked but a few days before hand we decided that this really would be best done outdoors and we could really push the boundaries with what we where chasing a decision we are delighted we made .check out the trail here “Couture”

We had the pleasure of working with the designs of Caoimhe Keane again on our recent project `”Silk” modelled by Dimakatso Mogwaneng. We had created 3 sets for the project, a solid backdrop, a fabric back drop and a dressed set, it allowed us to experiment a little and give Dimakatso a better range of photos for her portfolio and also give Caoimhe the high end finished shots she would be using for her website and catalogue.
We released this teaser trailer “Silk” a few days after the shoot.
Did You Know :::::Silk is a natural protein fibre, some forms of which can be woven intotextiles. The best-known type of silk is obtained from the cocoons of the larvae of themulberry silkworm Bombyx mori reared in captivity (sericulture). The shimmering appearance of silk is due to the triangular prism-like structure of the silk fibre, which allows silk cloth to refract incoming light at different angles, thus producing different colors.
