The morning after the rave I was up early to go meet Jesse. I’ve known Jesse for a few years now. Nowadays, the vast majority of our interactions are online, but he’s always someone I enjoy bumping into when I’m back in Scarborough; even if it’s quite literally to pop my head through the door for a quick hello as I’m passing while he’s performing at Cellars.
He’s been threatening to hire me to take some photos on a more official capacity for a while, and it just worked out that this time it actually happened.
We met by the sea, but the beach was rammed. People everywhere, and I think if we stuck around any longer we’d have both exploded. Instead, we drove the the middle of nowhere, and found a location which felt suitable considering the example photos he’d sent me to look at around 10 minutes before we met.
I shot a bunch of portraits on my X-Pro2 as is standard now, with the Pentax 50mm 1.7 lens. However, I took along my Nikon D610 and also gave that a run for a change. We got a whole bunch of photos that I think is fair to say we’re both pleased with.
Here’s a small selection of the handsome bastard.
