I'm from New Zealand, I live in Dublin, Ireland. I'm a photographer and occasional model, and I do professional editing, photo restoration, and I work in a photolab where I produce canvas, do large format printing and graphic design.
I shoot the majority of my work on fuji superia 200, and then run it through a SP3000 (as a 16 base). I print on a Frontier 570, and an Epson 7880 - Which I adore.
Love crystal archive, love fujihunt artist canvas, love pearl 360gsm, love vivid light magenta ink. Hate everything else.
Also I upload random stuff at random times so the collection I've got on here doesn't make much sense.
I'm thinner than I was 3 years ago. By about....I dunno, 7 stone?
People seem to feel a need to point this out to me, which never
ceases to amaze me. It's like, if you ever say something to someone
along the lines of ''I went bunjy jumping''. They have to tell you about
when they went bunjy jumping, or their fourth cousin who knows a guy
who went bunjy jumping once forty years ago in Tuscany. It's this
incredible desire to one-up you on everything.
This annoys me, in a way I cannot even express.
So I thought, in my little messed up Irish-Kiwi-American brain,
when the next person who, by-the-way, doesn't know my last name,
I have a gigantic scar. I had open heart surgery when I was 6, and it goes from my
collar bone down almost to my belly button. I don't cover it up, and I don't try to hide it.
I always remember just after the surgery, I was asking if it would go away. The Doctor
said to me, ''Well you're never going to be a lingerie model, but it will fade.''
About a year after that one of the major underwear brands did a campaign using a girl
with a huge scar on her chest. It's never bothered me since then.
I've seen it as part of being more unusual and interesting than anything bad.
Like having a big tattoo, it makes me (apparently) less
It's pronounced like Emily. Irish names are unusual. Where we kiwis would put Shavaughan, they say Siobhan.
Apparantly , Siobhain, Siobhann, Siobhin, Siobhon, Shivon, Siavon, Siovhan, Shivaune, Shivaun, Shavon, Sioban, Siobain, Shivonne, Shvaugn, Shivaughn, Shivaughne, Shavaughn, Shavaughne, Shavaugn, Shavaugne, Shavaun, Shavaune, Sheavaughn, Shevaun, Shevawn, Shavone, Shavonne, Chevonne, Chevon and Shivan are all acceptible.
Don't get me started on Caoimhe, Aoife, Sorcha, Diarmuid, or Eoghan.
Also my name is actually Emily. But that was taken.
