Back again no matter what

Check out this months VIP magazine for my shoot with BOYZONE. Had way too much fun shooting the lads in the circus so have a look at the magazine to see the rest of the pics and read the interview which is actually very interesting I must add! There is also a cute shoot with Rosanna shot by the lovely Emily Quinn which is also worth checking out. And also another shoot of mine of the beautiful Zara Curtis looking like a Celtic Goddess.
Back to Boyzone though, I must say it was actually so easy to shoot them.  Whenever we had to do a group shot, they just automatically morphed themselves into the ‘boyband position’ and it was just so easy and effortless for them. The cover pic below literally took about 4 minutes all together. Such a pleasure to work with!

One thought on “Back again no matter what

  1. Jean Marc Lopez’s journey into calculated risk-taking
    A MAN OF A-VENTURE
    BY CLAIRE THOMPSON
    standing amongst Florida’ s most successful
    venture capitalists, Jean Marc Lopez is ready
    to conquer the world. For 16 years, the 39-
    year-old has been diligently forging a stellar track
    record with investments in financial services,
    commodities, technology, real estate and the
    entertainment industry.
    Lopez, whose motto is “Be alive, keep moving
    and always strive for more,” was born in Monaco
    where he was raised in a close-knit family. His
    father Hubert Lopez Heredia is the painter who
    founded the flower abstract movement of the 70’s.
    Lopez maintains he was a well-rounded individual,
    involved in business ventures of his own. “There
    was always an open dialogue in my family about
    the arts, the economy, anything really,” Lopez
    recalled. “Education was always stressed and
    encouraged.”
    So it comes as no surprise to learn that Lopez had
    a thorough education that included a doctorate and
    master’s from the Nice Sophia Antipolis University
    in France. He also speaks four languages and has
    been an avid patron of the arts. The driven
    businessman practices martial arts every day and
    enjoys literature. “I’ll read about anything as long as
    I come away having learned something,” he
    explained. When asked if he takes after his father
    and paints as well, Lopez shrugged sheepishly and
    responded, “There were five generations of
    painters in my family. The gene seems to have
    skipped me. But I enjoy collecting art.”
    Having so many different interests has never
    gotten in the way of Lopez’s goals. As a college
    student, he became a developer and real estate
    broker on the French Riviera, making a name for
    himself before he had even graduated. Before
    long, Lopez, who has been an enthusiastic fan of
    South Florida for 20 years (he said he loves the
    weather), made the move to found his Palm
    Beach venture capital firm A-Venture Capital.
    “South Florida has very well-developed
    infrastructures and a great mix of cultures,” he
    explained. “Even if there is a slowdown in the
    Miami real estate market, I have a strong
    confidence in this market because it will be
    growing for years to come.”
    Lopez has had staggering success with over
    $500 million of private equity financings, $300
    million in real estate acquisitions, and $150
    million in real estate divestitures. This coming
    year, he said the company will be focusing more on
    investments in the entertainment industry, mainly
    motion pictures. Although Lopez has already been
    linked with several projects and celebrities, the
    entrepreneur has never been star-struck. “From
    the beginning to the end, we are all more or less
    the same, just human beings,” he explained. “For
    me there is no difference between someone who
    acts on the screen and someone who sells flowers.
    I do respect and value people a lot.”
    It is a widely indulged belief that venture
    capitalism is a business in which only the bravest
    risk-takers can find success and harmony. But
    Lopez claimed he approaches every risk with
    methodical caution, thorough analysis and
    meticulous planning: “It’s like being a stunt man.
    You look at them and you think they are taking
    major risks. But really, they are experts in risk
    management — at avoiding risks.”
    Still, Lopez makes no bones about the chances
    he takes. He relies on an intense ability to observe
    — as well as ponder — business and life. “I believe
    that success in business is 90 percent thought and
    10 percent action,” he said. Perhaps it is his
    practice in the martial arts that has allowed him to
    hone an intense focus on his goals. What is clear is
    that Lopez is one of those rare individuals with the
    ability to realize dreams with sheer concentration.
    He keeps his eyes open at all times, on all things
    —not just the prize.
