The photographer behind these sultry Emily Ratajkowski campaign shots is one of Wicklow's finest
A photographer from Wicklow has just shot Emily Ratajkowski for a major campaign.
Christopher "Boo" George has been quietly making waves as one of the most sought after photographers in the industry - working with everyone from Alessandra Ambrosio to Jamie Dornan, and Victoria Beckham counts him as one of her favourites, even shooting her for the cover of Vogue Australia last year.
The 35-year-old from Bray, Co Wicklow, has just teamed up with Hollywood 'it girl' Ratajkowski, who has a well-documented fondness for Ireland.
Emily is the new face of Dl1961 denim's Autumn/Winter 2017 campaign and worked with George for a sultry shoot at New York's Plaza Hotel.
It's not the first interaction between the pair - in early July, she shared a black and white snap of his on Instagram.
"Your [sic] the best @emrata see you in cork," he captioned the snap.
"Meet ya at Ma's," she quipped.
Emily grew up in Bantry, Co Cork and considers Ireland her "second home" and is often pictured visiting at least once a year.
"Both my grandmothers are from Ireland and I have spent every summer in Bantry since my father, who is an artist, had the romantic idea 20 years ago to buy an old farmhouse on the west coast and renovate it," she said in 2013.
George moved from Wicklow to London in 1999, but often returns home for work and pleasure. In 2014, she famously shot Emporio Armani's Autumn/Winter campaign on Dollymount Strand.
"I started doing documentary photography...and then for my end-of-year project, I went on a fishing boat North Sea off for nine months to shoot fisherman," he told Artsy of how he got his start.
"And I made a book out of that. Still to this day, one of my favorite pictures is of a fisherman. I moved to London straight after that, and started assisting."
