Copper Face Jacks is a well known spot in the wonderful city of Dublin and recently I had the good fortune of photographing a PR event for the popular venue. They were promoting their Copper Face Jocks with a hashtag of the same name. I was to meet at Shelbourne Dog Racing Park on a cold, dark evening a young man named George Hardy. He was going to be the Irish equivalent of The Naked Cowboy in Times Square and run around Shelbourne Park as The Naked Farmer. Donned in a flat cap and wellies and sporting a gorgeous pair of Copper Face Jocks and an Acoustic guitar. George was a great sport and a fit young lad so he had no bones about running around almost naked. People joined him to get their photos taken and George even managed to get his photo holding The Sam Maguire cup. All in all it was great craic and a pleasure to shoot. Big thanks to all involved who had us along.
