First week back in Scarborough!

I haven’t posted since I’ve moved back to Scarborough, and I’ve already done a few different things so figured I’d condense it into one long post rather than a few small ones which I know I’d never get around to doing.

It’s always strange being back in Scarborough, but some things never change and the locals still amaze me.

NCP & The Lighthouse with Heather & Heather

My shoot with Clare was supposed to be my last in Glasgow before I left but I bumped into Heather and Heather in Cathouse on Saturday night and we made a loose drunken plan to get up the following afternoon and meet for a couple of hours before my train back to England.

I was ridiculously hungover, and tried to think of places we could shoot on the way in to meet them. The first place that sprung to mind was the car park I was with Omar in a few weeks back as it was minus 1 and the carpark was relatively sheltered.

We took a couple of headshots and then just wandered around before taking a walk to the Lighthouse after stopping for a much needed Irn Bru and a pasty on the way.

It was pretty busy up top of the Lighthouse, and some people saw what we were up to but, as I’ve found typical of Glasgow, didn’t bat an eye and rightfully so. I’m gonna miss that while I’m away.

We only took a few photos before I had to run for the train, and the journey was hell so I’m glad I got to hang with a couple of pals before I left. It made the day suck considerably less.

I’m pretty tired and can’t really think of much else to write just now so here’s some photos from the day and there’s a video at the bottom since I’m tryna get more content on my YouTube.

Queen’s Park with Clare

As with Heather the week before, I also met Clare at the Cathouse.

Clare, Queen's Park-1

I’ve seen her pretty regularly since I started working there and she’s a pro at dodging my camera in the club, so I was pretty surprised when she dropped me a message about being game to do some photos.

I half expected Clare to cancel which of course wouldn’t have been an issue ‘cause if someone don’t want their photo taken then that’s obviously fine. That said, she turned up ready to go.

We headed into Queen’s Park and got right to it, which was great as on Sunday I’m moving away from Glasgow so aside from working in the club tonight, today was likely my last chance to take photos before I leave.

Clare, Queen's Park-2

I always enjoy heading out with people that don’t model, ’cause from my experience it always comes across as a pretty fun and exciting thing to do, which Clare actually mentioned as we were talking about it toward the end.

We took about an hour to walk around the park, starting at the top and working our way down to the pond before finishing up by a Church in a trolley with a ton of brochures, and called it a day.

I got home and edited the photos and Clare dug them and from the chat we’ve had I suspect we’ll be shooting again when I move back to Glasgow in a few months.

Anyway, here’s the rest of the photos.

First shoot of 2018 with JAZZebell_ (…obviously)

I ended 2017 by moving flat 3 times in the space of 7 weeks, and right now after two weeks of that Christmas/New Year lark I’m gearing up to move for a 4th. Despite this, I’ve tried to not let it get to me too much and focused when I could on getting out and taking photos.

So in an attempt to keep on with the momentum that arrived in the back end of 2017, and despite being absurdly hungover, I stepped out of the flat with Jazz to shoot in the corridor on the 1st.

Granted, the shoot took all of five minutes, but at least we did something.

Hogmanay 2017

Stephen had threatened no Hogmanay party but due to no one else really doing anything ended up throwing one anyway. Old habits die hard.

I’m going to keep this brief and leave you with some photos and a video.

Fun fact, seconds after leaving the party and taking this photograph I was shouted at and called a creep by some mad wi’ it lass. Her pals apologies for her.

Happy New Year.

Omar and Flash

The last time I saw Omar properly, he was dragging me around parts of Glasgow and filming me for some photographer series on his YouTube channel which I’m told is gonna surface in the New Year.

That was in the summer, I think.

The other day while I was out with Heather he dropped me a message asking if I was free the day after. I was.

We met at the Apple store and took a walk past George Square.

The cool thing with hanging with Omar is that there’s never really any plan to what we’re going to do. We just end up walking a few miles and shooting whatever the hell we like on the way. This time I mostly focused on Omar.

Christmas at Cathouse

New Year’s Eve tomorrow, meaning Christmas is finally done and last night marked my final shift of the year at Catty.

I don’t particularly celebrate Christmas and this year I put a solid effort in despite not having a place of my own to live and numerous other things that crept up along the way. Inevitably I burned myself out and went back to my old ways, but I at least managed to deal with it better.

Doesn’t matter how hopeless things get, and this year proved if you can find yerself some good cunts to be around it makes the world of difference.

Enough on that, here’s a selection of photos from over the Christmas period.
