SLX Cushions Product Photography
2015-02-27

I shot a Google Business View tour along with some portraits of the team at Kevin Dempsey Distributors last summer, and delighted to hear from them again recently. They've a slew of new designs as part of their SLX cushions range and needed to get them ready for their marketing collateral, as they've a scheduled newsletter, and website promo alongside some of the old fashioned real-life printed material. The pure white background is usually favoured...

TenderScout Corporate Portraits
2015-02-20

So Tony and his fledgling yet vastly impressive company TenderScout, had a sizeable launch this week. After comparing the flake of various croissants around Dublin he gave the nod to my old haunt at No.6 Kildare Street. I was in there last week shooting another event for press/PR, and before that was in shooting the interiors for the RCPI themselves. If i had to be familiar with a place this would be high on it. Pretty fine spot for seminars etc as...

Function overrides form in this. You need to be able to see a fast moving sticker printing press with tack sharpness. And you need to be able to explain to the designer that you can modify to the die-cut without affecting the grid bleed on the printing press (or something technical about printing that makes a bit more sense than that). Sealpack make labels for a medical devices so accuracy, precision and consistency and key to their product. Each...

PhotoSphere on the Brooklyn Bridge
2015-02-06

I was lucky enough to have some down time on commission over in New York last spring. I was in the throes of a new found love and amazement with Android's Photosphere – it's a pretty amazing bit of software tacked onto the later native stock Android camera which allows you to create full 360s utilising the gyro, compass and processor of the device. After you finish shooting it takes a little while to crunch the images into a 2:1 (that's the flat...

woah there – not so fast cowboy
