Happy Friday to you all, hope you’ve been having a constructive day, working hard so to can with a clear conscience put your feet up for a well earned weekend off. Well I am in the process of having a reorganise on the old web site. While I am putting some of my latest work up I’m also adding back in some of my all time favourites. These images are one of those, this truly magical home belonging to Lorraine Kirk owner of a unique fashion store in Perry Street NYC, Geminola , we, Abigail Ahern & myself were there to shot the living room for Abi’s 1st book Girls Guide to Decorating, I arrived before Abi as she was in the hotel sorting out the rest of our week shooting in NYC. I was blown away by the house, and had to use all my Irish Blarney to talk Lorraine into allowing us to stay a little longer than planned to shoot the rest of the house. This all happen back in 2008, see it is an oldie, but I remember it so clearly as if it were yesterday. I still love these images we made that day. Lorraine’s style is so distinctive, you can tell that everything is there because there is a reason for it to be there, and it just works, hope you like them as much as I do. My newly organised folio will be getting launched on Monday. Have a great weekend.
Wouldn’t you want the ‘winter blues’ if they looked like this? It’s my third anniversary shooting with French Connection – well 3 seasons anyway – so appropriately I have featured a fabulous blue leather sofa, designed for the ongoing collaboration with DFS – you knew that the ‘thing’ for a third anniversary is leather surely. Teamed with their amazing accessories, I think it’s a killer combination. I love the brass standard lamp, and under strict instructions, will be purchasing a couple for the missus
If your looking for tips on incorporating Marble into ones abode, then look no further than the inspirational Malibu crash pad of the amazing Kelly Wearstler we, Abigail and myself, where luckily allowed to include it in the pages of the Colour Book, which was recently published, if you’d like to read more about our day listening to the ocean lapping on the beach outside the windows, while working hard shooting the interiors then click here to read Abi’s latest blog
I have been working with Abi for a long time now and am pleased to say we are still speaking, and I’m proud to show you the new cover for a book we did together last year – though why I’m showing you the cover as there is no bloody photo on it, I don’t know, but my photos are inside. The book was released on 23rd April and a signed copy can be pre-ordered from Abigail’s shop www.abigailahern.com also available to order from www.wordery.com and www.amazon.co.uk
Ooo la! la! as I said yesterday to French Connections latest homeware collection, which is now online, sorry I was a bit to keen to get in out there and only found out later that it didn’t go live until the afternoon, so here it is again FC Home
I just managed to sneak in to see the Guy Bourdin exhibition at Somerset House before it closed on the 15th March. It was intriguing, funny, sexy, weird, provocative, indulgent – it is a wonderful reminder of what can be achieved when abundant creative freedom is afforded the artist
Some-where…………….. to put your derriere.
Late last year I photographed a brilliant collaboration between the design team at French Connection and the Furniture brand DFS. Despite going into store post the ordering cut off for Christmas delivery, it is the companies best ever seller. Bravo!
For the last blog before the Christmas break, of course it has to be a festive one. A few weeks ago I was shooting with the wonderful Amanda Koster , doing a shoot for the fantastic people at Grazia . We had such a fun day at the Master Shipwrights House , Victoria even cooked us all Christmas lunch. But the above image never made the layout which is a shame and so I had to share it. Wishing you all a very merry Christmas season, and a Happy and prosperous New Year……
