Shir Madness the amazing Hoop girl!

I first witnessed the stunning  Shir Madness while attending one of the many Dirty Circus events in Galway. I highly recommend it for a fun night out if you are looking for something different. I remember thinking how the hell does she do that ! This girl has a great talent for balancing and performing with Hoops and still managing to look sexy!  She has also been around the world performing at various events . Closer to home she has been performing at the Jerry Fish and the electric sideshow for over a year now, a feast for the eyes and the senses!
Originally from France Shir has made Ireland her home and continues to wow audiences around the country. I foresee big things in her future.

We had a lovely photoshoot recently to showcase both her talent and also to present the new 'Showgirl' boudoir session that is available with ourselves at Boudoir Girls . A fun alternative to the usual boudoir sessions..' every girl gets to be a showgirl for an afternoon'!  We also provide photoshoots for performers of circus and burlesque should you need some quirky images for online use.

John Denton Workshop

I've been a bit behind on my blogging of late. As with all of us photographers shooting is the fun part! Speaking of fun and shooting I had the pleasure of traveling up to Moate in August where Ken Byrne and his partner Aine (now fiance! congrats guys! ) was hosting a fashion /fine art workshop by the amazing John Denton.
I travelled up with John Mc Mahon and got to meet some lovely local photographers and shoot the fabulous model Devon who travelled over with John for the occasion from the UK.
We had a lovely time wandering around the fabulous grounds and shooting in the house itself. Devon managed to pose her way through the day for us no complaints fair play! I was feeling for her as its no simple task holding poised positions for hours on end. Thankfully the weather was pretty mild! 
We went through new techniques with posing and lighting and it was done in a lighthearted fun manner which I really liked. 
Big thanks to everyone involved really enjoyed the day and would highly recommend John's Workshops to anyone SWPP member or not. Links below :))
