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.

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.

Gormley’s Strabane October 2020

Gormley Shoes Strabane

I went to Gormley Shoes, Strabane for a Local Women Magazine Photoshoot. It took place in October 2020 for the November magazine. I asked Yasmin to model again. We have worked together quite a lot over the last couple of years. She is very good at what she does and is always great fun. We got the hair and make up with Valerie Kennedy in Eglinton. Again, Valerie has always helped out and as always produced fantastic results. I went to Gormley’s Strabane October 2020 to get the product for the shoot. Declan who owns the shop is my brother in law so always good to see him. Gormley’s Strabane October 2020 was another great shoot. Many thanks once again to Declan, Yasmin and Valerie for helping out in this shoot.

Kaily Photo Shoot in Derry

Kaily Photo Shoot

I went along to the Waterside railway station in Derry for the Kaily Photo Shoot. We met Kaily a couple of months ago. I noticed her walking along the river Foyle in Derry.  Just had to ask to take her photo and she said yes. She is just so natural at posing and loves getting her photo taken. The first photo shoot was only a few minutes long. This time we met at the railway station. I had the platform shot in mind but we also got some images at the riverside. It was a cool evening but dry and nice. We fortunately got permission to go onto the platform where it was quiet. Then we went over the side of the river where we got some nice lights of the town in the background.

Aaron’s First Communion

Aaron’s First Communion

Aaron’s First Communion took place on 30th September 2020. A Family Communion is always a special day. Strange time for a communion due to Covid. We met at the Craft Village in Derry City Centre just after the service. The weather was good to us if only a little cool. Aaron’s first communion was a bit of craic from now on. We walked around the Craft Village where there are so many great places for photos and then went onto the Derry Walls which has many spectacular views. We used the area around the Guildhall a lot with great background views. I got the kids jumping around which helped to relax them. The kids really enjoyed it when i got their mum and dad to do the same lol.

Dobbins Family Communion

Dobbins Family Communion

The Dobbins Family Communion took place this week where  Finn was the star of the show. His father Simon was trying to be the star but just couldn’t do it this time. We met at St. Columb’s Park House early evening and the weather was just lovely – a little cool but nice. This was basically a family photo shoot. It turned out to be great fun. I know Simon and the family so the craic was good. We just went for a walk around the park. We ended up at the swings with all the kids. Some kids had to move so we could get some photos but they were ok about it. The usual parents kissing above the child photo was great fun with poor Finn cringing and his mum and dad loving it of course.

Zara & Tiernan Photoshoot

Zara & Tiernan Photoshoot

Zara & Tiernan Photoshoot was such a fun photo shoot – most of the time lol. This was a shoot that was put back due to Covid. This was supposed to happen at the end of March but just didn’t happen. Zara & Tiernan are two very special kids who are also blessed to have two special mums, Rosin & Aoife. We met at St. Columb’s Park recently and just went for a walk. To see the special bond between this family was really lovely to witness and capture. I am only showing a few images as there are so many. Zara & Tiernan Photoshoot is a shoot i will always remember. We just had a lot of fun. The two kids were just like any other kids with plenty of laughs and tears. The photos speak for themselves I think.

Throwback to 2018 The Wedding of Peter & Lorna

Peter & Lorna got married on 14th August 2018 at Bishop’s Gate Hotel in Derry, the wedding between Peter & Lorna took place.  I was there for a little while just to get some photos of the newly married couple. At Gerard Gormley Photography, I like to take photos in a fun, natural and classic way.  The guests were all gathered at the hotel when I arrived.  I met Peter and Lorna and we decided just to do some images inside in the beautiful library area of the hotel.  The light was almost perfect for us and as you can see below, we got some lovely images.  Many thanks to Peter & Lorna for allowing me to enjoy their day, if only for a little while.  I wish you both many happy years together.  Please feel free to contact me if I can help with any photography needs.  You can get me here or on Facebook at Gerard Gormley Photography.

Photoshoot for local PT Derry

Fitness Shoot with Aidan Doherty Fitness

 

Fitness Shoot with Aidan Doherty Fitness based in Skeoge Business Park was a good laugh. I called to the gym and although I had some ideas, so did Aidan lol. I actually attend this gym and have been since January. Everyone is great fun and more than willing to help and support each other.  Then there is Ryan who is affectionately known as Hitler lol. He loves it of course. Attending the gym has been a great experience. Aidan has created in my opinion something special. Both Aidan and Ryan try and get the most out of you at the time. That said, they do keep a close eye on us all when at the gym and exercising. They both pay a lot attention to the overall well being including mental health of their clients. I have had gym membership in the past but this is very different in a good way. This of course is only my opinion but the other members I know would agree I feel sure.

Bride on the Wedding Morning

Bride on the Wedding Morning – here are a few images from getting ready to meeting the man she loves. This is Martina and Justin’s wedding. The morning of a wedding can be chaos but it is so much fun. This is obviously the bride’s house and will be very different to the groom’s house. Here you have hair and make up along with so much stuff going on. The main focus is the bride but if kids are involved things can get tricky lol. These images are when everyone is ready and starting to get ready for the trip to the Church.

Ciara and Nathan

Ciara and Nathan had their photo shoot at the Pollan Beach near Ballyliffin. This really is a fabulous location in Donegal. Many bridal parties arrive here for photos so we were lucky with the weather. Ciara and Nathan were great fun to work with and they all just got stuck in and had a fun day. Rain had fallen earlier in the day and we got a lovely photo of the couple under the rainbow. Without the rain you will not get that shot.
