Today I took some street style photos for for our blog.

Kyle always looks so impeccable and I'm glad I got the chance to photograph him today, I need to put some
more time into photographing the people I would like to, or even just seeing people I want to see.
Lately I just work and sleep, it's getting very tiring. I want to put more energy into doing other things.
Especially since I do have the time.

Right now I'm going to concentrate on getting an archive of photos together, maybe put a portfolio together
and you know, just see what happens.

I took these shots of the gorgeous Francesca Nyeze for 9crowstreet.coms new lookbook.
We wanted to mesh together loads of cultures and ethnicities and came up with this.
To see more follow this link. 

Also I had one of my first paid shoots last week, it went really well. Working on the photos at the moment. It was just portraits for a director of photographys website.
 It was a little weird not shooting exactly what I want but I feel like I fulfilled the brief which I'm really happy with.

 Anyways, enjoy x

Kellie has graced our website and facebook page numerous times,
but always styled & photographed by other people.

Easy Riders

The weather in Ireland this summer is a complete mind-fuck. I for one always wear shorts in the Summer and usually without much of a thought to how it's going to be outside. This summer though my legs are in poor shape, you wake up in the morning and it's a gorgeous day, pop on a pair of shorts, a t-shirt and a light jacket. Then about 10 minutes later there is torrential rain and insane winds that chill to the bone. I fucking hate it.

These shorts though are worth wearing in any weather, I picked them up in a charity shop almost two years ago
and I really am still as mad about them now as I was then.
The t-shirt is from and can be purchased here in our sale section for €15:

Tuesday, 31 July 2012


Here is the outfit I was wearing today. I got those cheap monday pants so long ago,
 but they're extremely baggy and I can hardly ever wear them because they don't go with too much,
I generally wear loose fitted tops so I just look mega fat,
so I paired it with a tight Puma tee and some Doc Martens and they looked alright.

Merle O'Grady Lookbook

I assisted the amazingly talented Kieran Kilgallon with styling on this
amazing lookbook for Meryl O'Gradys Collection 7. Meryl is a hugely talented jewellery designer
from Ireland living in London.

Funnily enough during the shoot we were chatting and
it turns out we both attended the same tiny primary school in the middle of Ireland, one which was subsequently knocked down to make room for a road that actually is a big mess. It's such a shame,
it was a really nice school, we had the same teacher Ms.Judge,
this wonderful woman who I always remember dressed so well,
she kept her hair in a little bun atop her head and one day let it down
and her hair hit the floor, she was really kind and warm-hearted.
Myself and Meryl attended the school at different times but both had lovely times there.

Leonn Ward

Leonn Ward is fast becoming my favourite photographer, hailing from Dublin but based in
London she photographs the beautiful creatures of London in the most interesting of settings, she really has an eye for making the surroundings in a photograph make the model/models look amazing but not outshine them. She works with some of the hottest male models, which I am very envious of,
but at least we get to see the photos, right?

She has done work for I-D, I-D Online, ILOVEFAKE Magazine and Hunter
Magazine and has been featured on DazedDigital and rightly so as she is producing top quality work. I've written about Leonn before, I always like to, her work just keeps getting better. I've featured some of my favourites in this blog post, all taken from, make sure to have a look.

Also we have added over 100 new items to,
check it out, some awesome bits in there.

I had started a project over a year ago and such as life, I didn't have enough time to put in to it. I was busy running a shop and have been busy the last few months starting an online clothing store. Hobbies tend to get pushed back when running a business, this is the one thing I've learned, well, more so any free time rather than hobbies, you have to be prepared for your life to be completely consumed by it. I'm going to start this blog to keep me busy elsewhere, I'm going to make myself find time again, I kept a blog for a few years and it's a really nice way to help you remember what you could so easily forget. Boys I have known was my project, I challenged myself to take photos of men that I knew or would encounter, ones that inspired me, or that I love or ones I just thought were pretty/interesting.

We got a new camera for the website so hopefully now I will get to put a bit of time back in to that.
Here are a few of the photos that I took, hope you enjoy.
