I’m a party photographer, and it’s good to be back. Here’s some recent highlights. Smile, you fucks.
Heading out for the Blythe Hogmanay Bash is a tradition I’m ok with, and this year I wasn’t tied into working in a club for the countdown so I got to spend the entire night with friends rather than doing it in two parts.
I didn’t take as many photos as I normally would which is unusual, but then again Stephen didn’t take a single photo despite having his camera round his neck most of the night…
I haven’t gotten around to posting about my new flat yet. To be honest I wouldn’t say the flat is interesting enough to have a blog all for itself but I’m eventually gonna do something which includes the area I’m now living in.
Since I moved in I’ve been busy trying to get furniture together and setting up the bills and council tax etc, and right now I am waiting for builders to fit a new bathroom and I think tomorrow I’m due carpets to be fitted… It’s coming together slowly, and at least I have lights now and I’m no longer sleeping on the floor.
Heather visited me the other day, and we had a catch up and took some photos. I’m gonna share a few below but you really should sign up to my OnlyFans to check them all out (seriously, there’s over 100 from this set alone). Heather was going to bring some clothes except they hadn’t dried properly and she prefers being naked anyway so that wasn’t a problem, and she did bring some strip lights that switched regularly between colours… So we put those to use.
I’ve missed having my own space since I was last living in Glasgow, and it’s nice to finally have a somewhere that friends can come and go anytime they like again.
As it stands, the flat is pretty much a blank canvas right now. So I’m probably going to be taking photos of people here for a while as it slowly transforms. It’ll be nice to look back on as the flat develops.
Anyway, here’s the photos. Continue reading “Heather (fairydolittle), Glasgow”
I’d been planning on catching Vennart on tour since it was announced, though was never in a position to bag myself a ticket. As it happened, I moved back to Glasgow the week before the Tut’s show but was still broke and couldn’t afford it.
I was ready to accept that I wasn’t going to make it this time round, but on the morning threw out a tweet basically saying that if anyone had a spare ticket I’d be eternally grateful. Vennart RT’d it, and within a few minutes a guy called Kenny got in touch to say his friend could no longer make it and that it’d be a shame for the ticket to go to waste.
It’s no stretch to say that this year has been a difficult one for me, but one constant aid to me coping was/is the music from this man. I took my camera along, and managed to grab a few photos of one of my heroes. A truly incredible show.
Here’s a selection.
It’s been a long time coming, and I’m finally catching up on some projects I’ve had in the works for a while.
YOU USED TO CALL ME FROM A PHONE BOX
The zine is 24 pages, full colour, and features photographs of trashed phone boxes in Glasgow.
This is a strictly limited run of 25, they’re all signed & numbered by hand, and one can be yours for £7.50.
Once they’re gone, they’re gone!
When I moved to Glasgow I joined a wee grunge band that was refusing to die and we ended up recording and releasing an album. A little while after that we recorded a 3 track EP and I ended up moving away and it’s over a year since we’ve done anything.
Anyway, that EP has just today been released, and I am looking forward to getting back to Glasgow to continue making a racket with these fellas.
Late April while on tour with JAZZebell_ we stopped off in Glasgow and stayed at Blue’s house.
