We are proud to say we now have an award winning photographer amongst our Fashion Shoot Experience family! Lisa Griffin won the honorary title of Canon Young Fashion Photographer last month at Dublin Fashion Festival with Canon Ireland, with images shot on our Iceland FSE. She received €500 worth of Canon products, and was flown to photograph a London fashion show “featuring some of the best known labels and models in the fashion industry”.
Entries were appraised by an esteemed panel of judges including Bairbre Power, fashion editor of the Irish Independent, Barry McCall, internationally renowned fashion photographer, Dave McKane, principal from the Institute of Photography and Jonothan Sultan, marketing manager of Canon Ireland. The judges shortlisted five winners to attend the event and have their works exhibited. On announcement, a 30 metre print of Lisa’s winning photograph was unveiled on the Bank of Ireland on College Green, and Lisa joined hosts Brendan Courtney and Sonia Lennon on stage to accept her prize.
Lisa said to us: “I think the Iceland FSE was something more than a workshop. It was a chance to meet new people and create something beautiful together. I’ve learned more on these trips then I ever could have anywhere else.”
