Brownlow House (also known as Lurgan Castle) sits in beautiful grounds overlooking Lurgan Park. I’ve been past it and have walked around it many, many times but just recently I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot in it. I was fortunate to be joined by another photographer and friend¬†Nigel Fleming and models Isadora and Charlotte.

Nigel and myself decided that we would split up and take one model each and throughout the course of the session we would swap. I started with Isadora and it was only after 15 minutes or so that she told me that this was her first photoshoot. I have to say that it certainly wasn’t obvious. She posed well and took direct like a pro.

I had been offered the use of a Porsche so a quick phone call and within 30 minutes it was sitting at that side of the house ready to be used.

I couldn’t resist trying something ‘artistic’ – a piece of reddish material held by Charlotte and thrown in to the air by Nigel. To be honest this did require a bit of Photoshopping to extend the length of the material.

Below are the rest of the images from the session. Really hope I can get to shoot at this location again.
