RTE’s Rebellion, some of the buildings it was filmed in

Many of us have tuned in over the last few Sunday nights to watch “Rebellion” RTE’s latest period drama. Based around the 1916 Easter Rising the story is a drama rather than a documentary and sections of it were filmed inside two really interesting period homes that I was asked to photograph last year. The homes were side by side and both in various levels of decay. They were 2 family homes of the Guinness Family, one built around the 1850s and the other build just after the turn of the century. So for those of you who would like to see a little bit more of these spectacular homes, here you go:

The North house, built around 1908:

The South house, built around 1850:

As a commercial photographer who specialises in architecture, interiors, construction and hospitality, I am lucky enough to get to see some really interesting homes and buildings. However this was one of the most interesting homes I have ever been lucky enough to have photographed.

Architectural and Interiors Photography – Behind the Scenes

Over the coming months I intend to publish a few blog posts showing some of what goes on behind the scenes when creating the final image for the client. Architectural and Interiors Photography allows businesses make a first impression on future clients and tell them a story about their service, product, property or business. a great image can really help make the right impression.

Here is a simple before and after showing the importance of post production when creating an image.

This is a video showing the exposures used and changes made to an image when creating an interior twilight shot.

Sometimes the changes seem subtle but each change helps make a great architectural photograph.

Here I take you through the tough process while showing you the lighting that goes into great hotel photography.

It is very important to stress, with architectural and interior photography that the above photos were taken with the final image in mind, each exposure had a specific task and was taken to enhance the final image. All the post production is done using mainly Photoshop CC or Photoshop PS6. The videos were created using Premiere Pro CC. Over the next while I will show you what is in my camera bag and include some details on why lenses, lights and other gear I use.

Interiors Photography – The Kitchen


Before looking at other types of Photography I thought I would look specifically at interiors and in particular the heart of any home, the kitchen.

I have been really lucky and had the chance to photograph a wide variety of beautiful homes for a selection of different clients who wanted to tell a selection of stories to people.

When photographing a kitchen the first thing one must establish is what the purpose of the shoot. Some of the most obvious reasons to photograph a kitchen is to show of a kitchen manufacturers work. Many of the kitchens I get to photograph are beautifully hand crafted by trades people with years of experience and unbelievable levels of skill.

Other Kitchens are photographed to show off the architecture and how the kitchen fits in to the story of the home while allowing the architects story continue.

The one thing that rarely changes no matter who the client is, is the idea that you want the viewer to look at the kitchen and know that they will be able to see themselves and their friends and / or family in that room with them. The viewer will be able to imagine a scene or a story that would include them in this kitchen.
