“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_”

Katy & Nicola’s Flat Party and Cathouse

Last night I headed to Katy & Nicola’s new place for a few drinks. I was already rough as shit and wasn’t expecting to head out into Catty again, but then the shots and venom were handed out and basically I didn’t go home when I’d planned.

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday have essentially been massive write-offs for me and I’m likely gonna be laying on my sofa recovering for the next day or so.

I try not to post too much nightlife stuff on this blog because that’s what Who Are These Fucking People is for but as these aren’t ‘work’ photos, and I was just hanging with friends and making the most of the 0.95 manual focus lens my pal Stephen has lent me for a wee bit, and I figured I’d share them because considering my state I’m quite into the photos.

So here they are.

Introducing: Pinned & Fabulous

Stephen and myself have ventured into the world of soft enamel pin badges.

Our first design, a ‘Gay Boy’ Gameboy is now available to purchase and with a cut of the proceeds going direct to the Kaleidoscope Trust in support of upholding the human rights of LGBT people internationally you’ll not only be supporting our new venture, but also be doing others worldwide a solid too. Winner.

Pick one (or a few) up at our store http://pinnedandfabulo.us and follow us on instagram.

They’re rad.

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.

Scarborough: Por Favor

I’ve a little catching up to do, so this is my first post of three from my time in Scarborough a couple of weeks ago.

I’ve entered a bit of a lull with party photos lately. I think the fact I’ve stopped drinking so much has become a huge part of that, and when you go at things with a more sober and ‘professional’ mindset, it gets stale real goddamn fast from my perspective.

I’m definitely due a blow out, I think…

That said, just over a month ago a friend of a friend got in touch with me about heading down to Scarborough to shoot a night they were putting on in a Brewery. It’s been a while since I’ve shot anything other than a rock club, so I jumped at the chance to do something a little different and arguably out of my comfort zone. Even if it did technically mean travelling to another country.

My history within Scarborough’s nightlife scene undoubtedly riles some people up the wrong way, and in all honesty I know a lot of the people who’d quite enjoy seeing me put into hospital would be into this particular event. Continue reading “Scarborough: Por Favor”
