I originally had this up on the main section of my website but then I thought that I should just leave that for art- and conceptually driven projects so blogging about it instead!
I shot these portraits for the Agagpe Ministries website a couple of months ago and I’ve only just gotten around to posting them up now!
I’ve neglected this blog for the last few weeks, I’ve been so busy with college and preparing for my trip to Malta in the morning. (I’ll back to regular posting when I’m back and I’ll have images from the trip to show too). For now though, I’ve been featured on the Lenscratch blog
Gobsmacked, considering this blog showcases incredible artists (…and then there’s me!). Nice Valentine’s surprise :D [Image is in the very middle (along the F’s in the links at the side if you follow that)]
Or if you want here’s a screenshot:
I’d love some feedback on this image. I never really take self portraits but I’ve had self portrait project idea in my head for forever so I’d love to see what you think of this one before I go and shoot an entire series!
Apologies for not posting yesterday, I don’t feel very inspired at the moment! I’ll be sure to write a post on what inspires me next week.
So, now on to the seventh post in this series. I’ve been so busy the last few weeks. This week has been quiet (thankfully). I got an interview date for a Photography course (it’s on the 29th) so I’ve tried to put together a portfolio for that, I’m going to get prints tomorrow so I’m nearly finished. I need to plan and shoot one more project and print it and I’ll be finished. Chai Media finished filming Aisling Conlan last week so we need to get editing on that soon! The photography studio where I’m interning asked us to film a promotional video for them so I wrote a proposal for that the other day, I need to edit it and see what they think.
Busyness is good :D
How has your week been?
PS: I followed back all my followers (that’s a mouthful!) to show my appreciation, thank you!

I’ve just come back from consulting with Irish canoe slalom athlete, Aisling Conlan. We are now in pre-production for a documentary video we’re shooting with her next week. I’ve known Aisling since I was 14 so getting her to talk and give us what we want won’t be hard! We’re going to forgo the traditional route of most videos about kayakers and let her tell her story: she has a really interesting background and we want to showcase that. While she was growing up, things were hard, but she’s come through that to become who she is now. She’\s come through adversity and is now one of the top elite canoe slalomers in the world. And she’s totally humble about it to boot! We’re going to shoot some footage of her kayaking and then film an interview with her in her house so we can have some variety in the shots. We’re also going to shoot some photographs of her and a video portrait. So we can showcase her and showcase what we can do, that we’re not one-dimensional.
This should be great, we’re getting so many ideas for it already. The finished video itself will be on our Vimeo page within the next few weeks so I’ll let you know when it goes up!
Have you ever seen any documentaries on sports-people? What did you think?

Well, as you may have guessed, I’m in the middle of setting up a production company with my friend Chesney (Chai Media, the link to our Facebook page is in the sidebar, please oblige us and like us!). We’re in the middle of shooting an ad at the moment so when it’s edited, we’re going to join Vimeo and that’s where all our videos will go. (I’ll probably link that in the sidebar too, later).
I have so many conceptual photo shoot ideas in my head… I need a willing model… and time, lots of time…
I’m thinking of changing the name of this blog too… to something that better expresses what I’m working in now… I need to have a thinking session!
This week has been kind of slow for everything, really. I haven’t seen my boyfriend since last week (silly repeat work :( ), I’ve only worked at the Picture Rooms for one day (today, I’m working again tomorrow) and I’ve not done any work with Chai at all.
I made my friend Jenny a zine for her birthday, with photos and quotes and that. I’m assisting on a fashion soot next Monday so I’ll post about that next week. Hopefully going to a couple of the PhotoIreland exhibitions on Saturday too.
