Week 9 - The Kilcolgan castle shoot

What happens if 25 photographers take over a 19th century castle? They are having fun! We certainly had a lot of fun, when we took over Kilcolgan castle for day last week. The event had all the hallmarks of a proper photo shoot. Models, make up artists, hair stylists, great food, and a fantastic location. 

When I first came up with the idea for a photo shoot, I just thought, let's try and organise something small, a few photographers, we might find a model or two, someone can do a bit of make up..... But there was so much interest in the event, that we needed a bit of help. So I contacted one of Galways best known photographers, Sean McCormack.

Sean put us in contact with Roza Model agency from Galway and lash and brow make up studio. So now we had professional models and make up! Ok, let's have a look at the location

Kilcolgan castle was built in the 1800's and is now used as a guest house and wedding venue.
