Number 25’s Supplier Spotlight
Here at No. 25, we work with lots of different suppliers from wedding cake designers to florists to musicians, and much more. We’ve been hosting weddings, corporate events and private dining events here for quite a long time and we’ve worked with lots of amazing suppliers along the way. We wanted to share some of these talented people with you so we’ve created a series of supplier spotlight posts, this week we’re focusing on Con O’Donoghue.
If you’ve seen the fabulous 360 videos of No. 25 you’ll already be familiar with some of Con’s work but we’ve set him 5 questions so we can get to know more about him and his business.
Tell us a Little About Yourself
Howaya? I’m Con. I’m a commercial and editorial photographer working for agencies, marketing managers and SMEs and the like.
I work with a wide variety of mediums, food, interiors, headshots, 360s, events, timelapse. Pretty much anything – anything but weddings.
Tell us About Your Business
Pretty varied tbh. Freelancing for nigh on 10 years with a varied client base in Dublin. Generally helping people getting marketing collateral. And I’m pretty curious about things, so getting to meet folk and helping them figure out what they need conveyed for their business/ comms channels is phenomenally rewarding. Love shooting food for restaurants. Last couple of years moving toward some more technical things, with time-lapse for construction, 3D models, 360º tours, Google StreetView and looking at some AR/VR project and photogrammetry. Just no weddings, seriously.
What’s Your Top Tip for Corporate Clients Using Your Services?
Use all the photos. Often only a few end up on the website or for the advertisement but use the others and variations of them across social media. Crop, filter, write on top – use ‘em. No one likes sitting in a drawer.
Tell us About an Event That You Enjoyed Working On.
You mean apart from working with wonderful Glandore?
Time-lapse of a 4-month build of a Liebherr ship-to-shore crane in Dublin docks. Freezing cold, massive machinery, engineering heroes, tea, juggling 6 shooting cameras, steel – lots of steel, Geordie banksmen, crisp morning on the Liffey. Have a look-see here.
What do You do When You’re Not Working?
Fixing things, talking about rugby, tinkering, looking for a seat in the pub, ferrying young lads to training/matches, contemplating a good lunch spot, looking for my keys, trying to stay ahead of the tech curve, yoga, solving geopolitical problems and drinking coffee.
