David & Charlotte’s Wedding

I headed down to Scarborough for the weekend as my pal’s Dave and Charlotte were getting married after being together for a decade. A decade is a long ass time, but I also can’t imagine them being with anyone else so it’s also about goddamn time, too.

I took a few photos throughout the day, so here’s a selection from my time meandering around with a camera in one hand and a pint in the other.

Shooting for 7side9 BMX, Scarborough

I headed back to Scarborough on Thursday as I was going down to shoot for the 7side9 BMX shop.

I missed out on riding and skating as a young kid, and by the time I thought I could maybe do it I couldn’t get passed the whole “if I fall I’m gonna break something” thing so instead I used to get my fix playing those kinds of games on a Playstation, and on an evening would hang about skateparks quite happily watching others do the cool stuff and occasionally break a leg.

I met Jazz in town and we grabbed breakfast and then headed to the shop to meet Craig. We picked the BMX we wanted to use, a couple of tees, and a hoodie then got gone to the local skate park.

“We don’t usually see many girls down here” said a couple of kids skipping school (I dunno, maybe it’s the holidays?) They can’t have been any older than 13 – I half expected them to be gobby little shites, but they stood by and stayed out of our way while watching Jazz. Nice guys.

After Hairy Bobs we headed to another location and I’m sworn to secrecy about where to find it so don’t even try. We made the most of the area being isolated, and shot a few nudes while we were at it.

It was fun getting out and shooting something different so if yer a brand with some spare cash feel free to hire me, I’m probably way more into it than you’d think and even if I’m not your money appeals to me because I am a sell out with a flat to pay for.

Anyway, here’s a selection of photos from the day.

“EAT PUSSY, IT’S VEGAN” Instax Shoot with JAZZebell_

My Patreon paid out yesterday which meant I could load up on instax. I’ve been meaning to shoot it for a while, and as Jazz is staying with me at the moment I figured now would be as good a time as any to do a shoot.

Jazz wore her “Eat Pussy, It’s Vegan” top, and also a balaclava that I’d picked up a while ago but not had chance to use. Continue reading ““EAT PUSSY, IT’S VEGAN” Instax Shoot with JAZZebell_”

Scarborough: Catch up.

Ok, so the three-parter blog posts about Scarborough turned out to be a mistake, there’s another one due. I almost compiled it all into this, but I don’t have the time today to sort through everything and I want to keep blogs somewhat regular. Besides, I’m gonna be pretty full on as of tomorrow morning ’cause I’ve got a pal coming over from LA for a couple of weeks and another is joining from Prague on the Sunday. So I’m not exactly sure when I’ll post again, but hopefully I’ll manage to fit something in during some downtime.

Maybe I should start scheduling posts…? Hm.

Usually when around pals I’m a little more pro-active with the camera, however I’ve just realised how little I actually took. I’d done a couple of pretty big shoots the day prior, so I suspect that has something to do with being out of it.

That said, it’s often a welcome change of pace to leave the camera out of it and actually just sit and listen and catch up properly without such distractions.

Though I did manage a few.

Scarborough: Jesse Hutchinson

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.
