Flat Party with Kitty & Leah

Yesterday saw Kitty returning to Glasgow for a brief over night stay, and she brought her pal Leah – a lass who in her own words makes “cups of tea for naked people” – ok, then.

The weather was good. So good in fact that I’m just going to blame the heat for how quickly I got drunk during the day, which was my reason for the early night…

Kitty is returning for a week next month with Jazz and I think their plan is to book a load of shoots while doing their cam-girl work from the flat during their down time, so I’m sure there’ll be a whole bunch of photos to follow with that.

Here’s few of the more suitable photos from the night.

Marvels: Abandoned Theme Park, with JAZZebell_

I’m struggling to blog as consistently as last month, which is probably an indication that my mental health is getting worse again, so I’ve again switched off various social networks, and tomorrow I’m going to force myself out of the flat and take my camera and just walk. Will see how that pans out.

In the meantime, I noticed Jazz has been posting a few photos from a day last year when we went to Marvels, an abandoned theme park in Scarborough. I don’t think I’ve actually posted any on this blog, so I’ve just been through and dug some out.

There’s almost nothing there now, in terms of the old theme park. An occasional structure, and some concrete of where things used to be, but it’s mostly dirt. We’d actually already taken some photos this day down on the open topped bus, where we got into a bit of trouble, and these follow on from that.

JAZZebell_ in a Popcorn Bath

I’ve had Jazz up in Glasgow for the past few days, and besides from a pretty impromptu flat party we almost didn’t get around to taking photos like we normally would. I know I wanted to get out of the flat, and I think Jazz probably wanted something similar but the weather was pretty rubbish and we were sort of tired/ill as well and that just never happened.

But last night we decided to fill the bath up with popcorn. I could only realistically use one pan, so it took bloody ages. I think it took me about 2 hours, if not more. Which is now the most prep I have done ever for a shoot.

Talking about prep for a moment – Jeffels was at a loose end and he had an idea for the lighting which basically meant turning the bathroom lights off and he’d manoeuvre around me with one of the lamps from his bedroom. I think it’s the first time I’ve incorporated light in such a way, as I was all set to just leave the bathroom lights on and make do as I’m used to. I’m glad this went the way it did though, the light really made a lot of the photos.

The bath thing has been done a whole bunch, I often see it done with milk and as a vegan that level of waste especially is pretty frustrating. There was a brief moment we considered doing it with vegan milk but that was dumb and expensive (though we did shoot a single carton of Oatly half way through…). The popcorn thing just felt ridiculous enough and fun. Sure, the waste is still not ideal but I’ll sacrifice eating popcorn for the rest of the year or something. Maybe two. I fucking hate the stuff now anyway.

I optimistically thought I was going to get 70 photos from shooting Jazz in a bath, but I ended up with 120 or so. There’s a considerable amount to follow below.

Flat Party

It’s been a while since me and Jeffels have thrown a party. I was working a lot in a club over Christmas and New Year, and so got my fill of parties there and then headed back to Scarborough for a couple of weeks. So there’s that, and not to mention recently we’ve been trying to lay off the booze…

As with any party, it started off civilised enough but soon descended into chaos. I don’t really have a lot of words and it’s all a bit of a haze so I think these photos will have to do.

Pubs, Pizzas, & Birthday Tattoos

Pizza and Birthday Tattoos by Lee Jones

Iain turned 29 the other day and once again we found ourselves continuing the tradition of getting a notoriously terrible tattoo to mark the occasion. This year we actually got two each.

The usual plan is to spend the day and night before drinking, get up and grab a breakfast, then draw something ridiculous while hungover, day drink, and go visit Dan to get it done. Everything sort of got skewed this year but we still managed to get it all done under the watchful eye of Jeanna, Iain’s girlfriend.

Traditions are to be taken seriously after all.

JAZZebell_ on South Cliff

I have a few days left in Scarborough and it just so happened that I had chance to meet my pal Jazz, who if you visit this blog regularly, you’ll see we’ve shot a bunch of stuff before.

Jazz had been out the night before and was actually still drunk when we got together today.

I haven’t shot down on South Cliff properly before, I don’t think. So today was a good opportunity to go and do some nudes.

Blythe Hogmanay House Party & Cathouse with Jesse Leach

In a way, last night marked the end of my first year in Glasgow. I didn’t technically move up until the start of February, but it was Hogmanay last year that cemented my desire to move to the city and make a go of it. It was also the first night I worked in the Cathouse.

Stephen and Grace hosted another Blythe Hogmanay in their flat.
