Late April while on tour with JAZZebell_ we stopped off in Glasgow and stayed at Blue’s house.
While in Newcastle I had planned to do some of my own shoots with other models, but due to some last minute cancellations that never happened so instead I’m posting this set I shot with JAZZebell_ in our hotel room.
I was feeling utterly dreadful when shooting so we didn’t shoot much more than 15 minutes. I even gave up half way through but was talked into continuing at Jazz’s insistence.
That said, we shot 108 photos for the set and they’re available on Patreon right now.
Right, here’s some photos.
James dropped us off by the A19 to help our hitch, but we kicked around for an hour and didn’t get picked up. It was boiling hot, and we were carrying everything and wearing our coats and we ended up resorting to heading back into the centre to catch a direct bus to Newcastle as Jazz had a shoot arranged in Newcastle, and we didn’t want to be late. It was that hot I couldn’t even be bothered to grab my camera from my bag, so there’s no photos here.
On the bus the morning got worse ’cause we had a last minute bust up with the booking agent for the apartment we had secured and that left us with nowhere to stay. Between that and not wanting to be late, we opted to just spend the same amount of money on a hotel for the full four nights instead of two and have it all dealt with so we weren’t stressing. It wasn’t ideal, but also not too many photographers are booking models at the moment apparently, so losing the apartment wasn’t the end of the day.
Just one of those things.
We met Arrow Photographic, and he drove us along the river to take photos of Jazz for an hour. They shot by the river and then also under the A1 on the way back to the car. After having a photographer bail on Jazz in Middlesbrough, it was good to have something to go to plan. Fair to say we both felt better then.
On Monday I left Scarborough along with JAZZebell_ as we decided to go on a hitch adventure.
The purpose really is to travel around so Jazz can work with photographers and so I can do my own thing and document the whole process, along with taking my own photos on the way.
The afternoon we left it was pissing it with rain, and to give us a little boost my mum dropped us both off in Pickering. We started walking toward Thirsk to then hopefully end up on the A19 to Middlesbrough where we’d planned to end up that night.
It took us maybe 25 minutes to get picked up, but by the time we were out of Pickering a couple stopped to pick us up. They told us about how they used to hitch back in the day, and still continue to pick up hitchers on the rare chance they see them. They were genuinely gutted they couldn’t take us further, and we were dropped off out in the rain about halfway to Thirsk. We carried on and it wasn’t long before another couple saw us and took pity. They said we looked miserable in the rain, but I know I was just doubting that an Audi driver would actually stop for us. I was wrong, and they were lovely.
Last week I made my way up to Glasgow and in order to break the journey up because I was doing it all on a bus I stopped off in Newcastle to see Kitty as I hadn’t seen her since early last year.
I arrived late afternoon and headed straight to hers and stocked up on some food as we were gonna be staying in rather than heading out for the night.
Pretty much as soon as we stepped through the door we started taking photos. I think we did like 30 minutes or something, and as ever it was straightforward. We’ve never really planned anything so why start now. Since I’ve switched up how I shoot this is the first time I’ve shot Kitty with flash, and I think this is also the first time I’ve photographed her when I’ve not been wasted/hungover so that was new…
The photos get NSFW pretty quick so I’ve gotten all the writing out the way so now you can check out the photos.
I headed to Liverpool for a couple of days to see JAZZebell_. I caught the bus, as usual and that took a few hours.
We’d booked an apartment for the night as she was celebrating being sober for an entire month. Jazz’s pretty good at scoping out deals and managed to bag a nicely sized private apartment in the city centre for £30. Nice.
I cooked her an evening meal, and we ate all the ice cream we could get, and I made breakfast the following morning.
By the time we got out of bed, we had an hour before check out and managed a quick 25 minute shoot in the apartment. I live streamed it on Instagram which was a first for me, and aside from my MacBook almost having it’s life reach an unnatural end, it went fine.
Right, here’s some photos and they get nsfw pretty quick.
After my two days in Liverpool I was ready for home but as I was preparing to leave Ruby got in touch and said she was game for a shoot if ever I was in Manchester, which happened to be on my way back.
I hadn’t actually met Ruby before so I obviously jumped off the bus in Manchester to meet her and we headed straight back to her apartment to hang out and shoot some photos.
