Yesterday I helped out with the Irish Tatler editorial shoot and by God was it fun! The concept behind the shoot was the main spring/summer trends, such as clashing bold colours, stripes, nude, sheer, lace and prints.
Even though it was a long day and we didn’t finish until well after 5 in the evening and the studio was freezing cold, it was such a blast working on the shoot.
One thing I would recommend to anyone whose never done a shoot before is dress warmly and comfortably! You’re never gonna look as amazing as the model so there’s no point in trying and being warm is a thousand times better than wearing something stylish and inevitably light.
On the very first shoot I done myself, my partner-in-crime turned up on the morning in an adorable white babydoll dress and Prada wedges. I had been running around the entire morning picking up the last of the clothes and was wearing a big hoodie and flats. Needless to say she complained for the rest of the day about her sore feet and lack of a coat, while I was warm and comfy!
Even though there’s always a lot of standing around at shoots, the atmosphere was good and everyone was chatting away in between. Anyway here are the shots I grabbed on the day and the proper ones will be in the March issue of Irish Tatler, on stands soon.
