In York with Viktoria Addison

I recently spent some time in York eating food and hanging out with my friend Viktoria Addison. We’ve been meaning to arrange a proper shoot with one another for a little while now, and it just so happened she was going to be dancing that night in York so that was the perfect opportunity to make it happen.

We worked out that we’d known each other for a long time, but actually hadn’t seen each other in almost 4 years which is pretty crazy to think about.

Normally, I think I’d feel pretty anxious about hanging out with folk I haven’t seen in a long while but that wasn’t the case here. And is a definite sign of having a solid friendship when you don’t need to be in touch with people all of the time. Everyone has their own shit going on.

We grabbed some pizza, and chatted for a while over tea and fudge, and then some pints by the river. In fact it was a few hours before we even started to properly take photos, just under the bridge opposite where we were drinking.

Woodland with Kitty Misfit

A couple of years ago I spent an afternoon with Kitty and we shot a few different sets in a bunch of different locations.

One of those – the one you’re about to view – was shot for her pay-site. I’m not exactly sure why but the original site ended up going down, not that that matters now because her site has relaunched so you can go and check it out here.

Anyway, this particular set wasn’t considered explicit enough for the new content she’s currently posting, which is no problem, it means I get to share it here and I can’t imagine there being any complaints with that.

Kitty is rad and she’s coming to visit me in Glasgow soon which means we’ll get to shoot a whole bunch of new stuff.

The following gets pretty NSFW.

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.

North Bay, “Tits in Skips”, and Mojos: Public nudes with JAZZebell_

You might remember JAZZebell_ from the zine release night photos.

We agreed to get together to have some drinks and hangout before we both leave town, though I’m pretty sure she hasn’t stopped drinking since the party.

To be 22 again…

The plan originally was to get some photos on the open topped bus as it went around Marine Drive, though they don’t appear to run during the week. Or maybe it’s a seasonal thing? I’ll be back for that.

We opted for the top near The Clifton Hotel, overlooking North Bay.

Jazz is a good kind of maniac, and was dancing most of the day. Taking her “2016~Don’t ever stop dancing” playlist almost totally literally.
