Richard Branson’s Necker Island home in flames by Laura Leonard

“Richard Branson’s Necker Island home in flames” by Laura Leonard

So sorry to hear that Richard Branson’s Necker Island home has been destroyed by fire. News reports from the BBC have said twenty people escaped unhurt. The fire was caused by a lightning storm and Sir Richard was quoted saying “My office was based in the house and I have lost thousands of photographs and my note books which is very sad. But all family and friends are well – which in the end is all that really matters.” Actress Kate Winslet reportedly helped Richard Branson’s 90 year old mother to safety.

Dominic spent a week on the Carribean Island  shooting Richard Branson in his hobby mode of  Kite Surfing for his second charity book. Dominic’s books entitled Out of Your Tree 1 & 2  depict the private pursuits, passions and inspirations of notable personalities. Priory Studios has raised over 56K for The Central remedial Clinic and The Irish Cancer Society from the sale of the books.

We have some beautiful photographs of Richard Branson’s Necker Island home to share with you, in particuar the lovely panoramic view from the crows nest. We hope the Branson family will be able to rebuild their home as quickly as possible.

Just seen that on the news. Must have been a fantastic experience Dominic!
The nicest house in the world – his Cribs episode is fantastic!! I’m sure it’ll get built back just as cool! If only we all had the foresight to buy a Caribbean island for next to nothing back in the 70’s!!

The Genealogy Roadshow as seen on RTE1 by Dominic Lee

The Genealogy Roadshow as seen on RTE1 by Dominic Lee

Our photography shoot took us to the fabulous setting of  Slane Castle, where filming took place for the final series of The Genealogy Roadshow.

If you can imagine the Antiques Roadshow meets Who do you think you are? – The Genealogy Roadshow comes to our TV screens, on Sunday 21st August  at 6:30 pm on RTE1 and is presented by well known TV and Radio personalty Derek Mooney. It will be aired over four weeks and will take viewers to Carton House (Co. Kildare), Adare Manor (Co. Limerick), Glenlo Abbey (Co. Galway) and Slane Castle (Co. Meath).

 

The show will feature ordinary people trying to trace their family tree and irish ancestry, some having connections to famous or infamous relatives!  The Genealogy team embark on searching for ancestors of the explorer Ernest Shackleton and trace links to Arthur Guinness. They will also be seeking connections to Dublin-born rebel Wolfe Tone.

Complete with its own ancestry and history, the majestic Slane Castle was the perfect setting for the final series of the Genealogy Roadshow. Owned by Lord Henry Mount Charles, Slane Castle has been his family’ s ancestral home since 1701.

The Big Mountain Production company had just one day to shoot the final series of the show and we were given the task of taking publicity shots and documenting the day’s events.

We photographed the genealogy swat experts Turtle Bunbury, (Historian and Author of Vanishing Ireland), Nicola Morris, (director of Timeline Research) and John Grenham (Professional Genealogist)

We were asked to come up with a shot that would portray their investigative roles in the programme. The use of a wide angle lens and the addition of shades added to the fun element of their shoot.

But, what was most interesting about this particular shoot was that we were part of a live audience. Members of the public were invited along to participate in the show. In the Slane Castle series, over 200 people arrived with all manner of stories and evidence of their past. Some had the opportunity to be selected to talk about their story with Derek Mooney.

As you can see from our accompanying photo gallery some of the shots were taken in the grand ballroom. Notice all of the technology used for the show, in particular the iPad! We are not the only fans of using the Apple device for the purpose of displaying media. We use them to give Wedding couples their photo’s! Priory Weddings

The four-part series of The Genealogy Roadshow starts on 21 August 2011 and ends on 11 September 2011.

The Tenements as seen on TV3 by Dominic Lee

The Tenements, as seen on TV3 by Dominic Lee

Our photo shoot took us to one of the Tenement buildings in Dublin’s Henrietta Street last month to photograph the Winston family. The shoot was commissioned by TV production company; Big Mountain for a new series called “The Tenements”. The series is presented by Bryan Murray and starts tonight on TV3 at 9:30pm. The four part documentary takes families back in time to discover their ancestors living conditions. Bryan uses the 1911 census of No 7 Henrietta St to depict the history of the overcrowded, harsh living conditions in the Dublin slums. The research advisers behind the program are lead by Catriona Crowe, Senior Archivist at the National Archives of Ireland and Diarmaid Ferriter, Professor of Modern Irish history at the University College Dublin.

When we arrived at the Tenements we were a little overwhemled by the massive rooms and high ceilings. One couldn’t help but wonder how they were able to heat such a vast area. As a photographer, you sometimes arrive at a venue and have difficultly figuring out what to do with your subjects due to various limitations. Not on this occasion! You immediately sense the grandeur of this building, the rooms are adorned with oil paintings, statues, artefacts, mirrors and ornate furnishings. It was of course at one time the dwelling of the elite, taken over by the local authority to house the working class during Irelands independence.  The high ceilings and beautiful natural light flowing through the rooms with all its faded glory was the perfect setting for our photography.

The Tenements starts tonight 3rd August 2011 at 9:30pm.

Bags and Bling in Aid of The Somalia Famine Relief Fund by Laura Leonard

Bags and Bling in Aid of The Somalia Famine Relief Fund by Laura Leonard

Priory Studios had the wonderful opportunity to get involved in the ‘Bags and Bling’ project organised by singer and fund raiser Sharon Crosbie. The idea is people can donate their designer handbags and bling to be sold in aid of the Somalia Famine Relief appeal on the 20th August.

The shoot took us to ‘Lost Society’ a real trendy and chic, if somewhat eclectic bar  in Powerscourt Town centre, Dublin yesterday. We only had a short space of time to get some publicity shots and then had to race back to the studio to get the images retouched and sent off to the national media. Lost society is a fabulous setting for photography.  The tall windows adorn the rooms from floor to ceiling allowing  us to work with beautiful and perfect ‘North’ light with which to photograph our models.

 

The main bar area is really chic with funky mood lighting, all adding to the ambience and cool atmosphere of the place. One of our models Amie, posed wearing a gorgeous Fran & Jane dress, with handbags and bling to match. She is surrounded by some of the handbags going on sale including lables such as Prada, Chanel, Hermes, Deborah Veale and Knuttal. We wish Sharon & Co huge success with this project. The official press release is here with further information on how you can help.

‘Bags and Bling’

Fundraising sale of bags and jewellery for Somalia

Saturday 20th August

10am – 5pm

The Lost Society, Powerscourt Townhouse, South William St, Dublin 2

It started with a conversation between neighbours on a sunny Sunday morning about the tragedy unfolding in Somalia.  As women, the need to do something to help the mothers of Somalia and their children was compelling and so an idea for a bag and jewellery swop among friends has now spiralled into a fantastic designer ‘Bags and Bling’ event.

Sharon Crosbie, Chairperson of the charity First Step Georgia, immediately contacted her good friend Caroline Desmond of MCD who has been wonderfully supportive of the idea. Caroline in turn has rallied her friends to donate their bags. These friends include Jedward who are donating a bag that they have customised especially for the event.

’The generosity of people in offering their bags, jewellery and time has been overwhelming’ said Sharon. ‘TV3 were in touch offering to help as soon as they heard about the idea, and the artist Graham Knuttel has donated 10 signed bags. The ladies behind ‘Fran and Jane’ have donated jewellery from their stylish boutiques. Aidan Fitzgerald, the well-known hairdresser has donated 200 goodie bags and Irish designer, Deborah Veale has donated a beautiful bag from her collection.’

The owners of the ‘The Lost Society’, the fantastic venue in Powerscourt Townhouse have generously given the use of their premises for the day.

The phones are hopping with enquiries and pledges of support.  Depots have been set up in Cork city, Kinsale and Carrigaline and the good ladies of Cork are clearing out their wardrobes for this excellent cause. Keelin Egan in Castleknock has mobilised the Castleknock set and some glamorous donations from these ladies are on their way!

‘This is going to be such a fun ‘girlie event’’ said Sharon, ‘There will be bags and bling for every age group and every pocket, and plenty of genuine designer bags including Gucci, Prada, and Fendi so come along and bring your friends, your sisters, your daughters, and your mother too!’

Can I go? Entry to ‘Bags and Bling’ is open to everyone. Admission is free and all proceeds will go to the Somalian Famine Relief Fund administered through the office of Mary Robinson.

How can I donate a bag? Contact Sharon Crosbie on 086 835 6665
