Tommy Tiernan, Ireland’s leading Comedian, Maverick, Writer, Philosopher, observer and all-round genius, required an image for publicizing and marketing his – “Out of the Whirlwind – The Shannon Tour”.

Following the concept for the tour, Tommy wanted an image where he was in a river. We scouted various locations and developed a visual mood board for the shoot, with super-stylist Triona Lillis of Astór. Photographic assistance came from CCAM graduates Suzi Coombs and Peter Sherry with flash and reflectors to hand. Tommy cracked jokes about his freezing crackers and a number of powerful and interesting images were produced. The image shown above suits editorial while the tour image below has a unique and quirky quality for marketing the comedic aspects of Tommy.

Many thanks to all involved on this shoot, ya was ACE!    

Below is the image in use. Super work by Ray McDonnell the designer…
