I was recently asked to photograph a couple of young local musicians from Hillsborough, Northern Ireland, for their FB page and album cover. (Martyn & Debs), known better as the Duo “Silent Echo” We spent a Sunday morning photographing around Hillsborough Forest Park looking out various locations for some portraiture photography.
Martyn & Debs gig quite a bit in the Hillsborough area in the Hillside Bar and wanted to keep a local connection with their images and locality in the Co Down village. They both started performing in Hillside Bar, and later progressing to private functions. They are now pushing to play in Belfast and all around Northern Ireland. Their Style is an Acoustic Groove, playing covers and some original material strongly based on Martyn’s rhythmic guitar playing and vocal harmonies with Debbie. Martyn & Debbie Both studied music together and apart, performing in local bands around the country.
Debs based in Belfast, and Martyn in Hillsborough, In 2015 they were the Winners of the Singer-songwriter category – Belfast Metropolitan College. A truly fantastic couple to work with and have ended up with some fantastic images, hopefully making it onto their first Album cover. Worth checking out their raw talent when the opportunity arises.
