Georgina & Stephen Engagement

Georgina & Stephen engagement – these two  have been together since they were young teenagers. Eventually, Stephen popped the question and, of course, the answer was yes. Georgina and Stephen got engaged during the lockdown due to Covid. True love conquers all so Covid was not going to stop them getting engaged. I met up with them yesterday evening in Derry City Centre near the Guildhall. We went for a short walk around the Walls and just had a little bit of fun with the camera. Stephen was just letting on to be shy lol. We do have an unusual shot of the lady dipping the man, that is usually in reverse. Anyone who knows Georgina will know that she works out a lot in the gym and is well able to compete with the men.

I’ve spent years helping people to find the perfect sole. In my shoe shop in the heart of Derry and now through my passion for photography
I get to photograph people with their soulmates! My daughter Bronagh and parents have always been and always will be a big part of my life. We have shared so many moments and enjoy looking at older photos and laughing together. Moments and the moments between moments during a wedding or a portrait session hold so much emotion. I love to capture images in a fun, natural and classic way. I’ve been passionate about photography for years, from the darkroom to my digital camera today, and storytelling is at the heart of what I do. I’m Gerard and I look forward to telling your story.

Hempful Products

Hempful Products

Hempful Products is a photo shoot I did recently. Hempful are located at Campsie near Derry so it was great to help out local people with product photography. I took some samples and had some fun with different images. I went to an Grianan in Donegal for the background and also to Mussenden Temple on the North Coast for more background images.

What is CBD Oil?

CBD, or to give it its full title, Cannabidiol, is one of the most prevalent compounds found in the plant Cannabis Sativa. It is non-psychoactive, completely legal and a major health-boosting ingredient. Full spectrum CBD oil is the most effective and most beneficial.

What is the difference between Hemp and Marijuana?

The difference between Hemp and Marijuana is night and day. The term Marijuana was used by the Federal Bureau of Narcotics in America in the 1920’s to refer to recreational Cannabis. At the time cannabis extracts were widely used in medicines and other food products, so the department criminalized cannabis by association with Reefer Groups and the term Marijuana became the street name for recreational cannabis.
Hemp on the other hand, although a Cannabis plant, never did make it as a recreational drug. It doesn’t contain the psychoactive compound, THC, which causes the high. Therefore you could smoke fields of Hemp and never get high. When Cannabis was officially banned Hemp feel under the bus with it. The understanding today is Marijuana gets you high, Hemp gets you healthy.

Hair and make up for the day was done by Laura Downey from The Secret Beauty Den We used the stunning Roe Park Resort for the photo shoot – we had to stay inside as it was just too cold out.
