Unexpected Ballymaloe

Ivona Poljac and Isabel Harvey had a lovely idea for some social posts for Ballymaloe. The budget was tight so they asked me to take some studio shots that were then comped with stock location shots. I think they turned out great.

Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

On the second night of a night shoot last week, I took this at about 12.30am in Grand Canal Square, in front of the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in Dublin, Ireland.

They were published through the RSA's social channels during National Bike Week (11th-19th June 2016). The scenes look dangerous, from the cyclist's perspective, intentionally.
