After many years of visiting Fota House and Gardens, I finally got to take photographs inside the house itself.
It was set up for a session to take a series of profile images for musician Sophie Creaner. Sophie needs a range of images to provide to media and organisers of concerts to promote herself and concerts in which she’s playing.
So rather than setting up a shoot just for a particular concert, we shot a range of images with different styles and settings so she has something for every occassion. We included headshots and I’ll end up delivering versions in black and white and panaoramic crops so that she has a lot of choice.
It was a great location for portraits and as usual Sophie was a pleasure to work with.
A Portfolio Session like this is a very cost-effective way of generating a stock of professional images for on-going promotional work. Don’t leave it until you’re being asked by press or PR for an image for a deadline tomorrow: take the time to plan the setting and layout of your images to present yourself in the way your clients will react best to.
