Electro B-boy

Its been a really cold and wet month here. Not many people want to get out and pose down for me, haha. I'm desperate to get out with the camera and I have some great digital art techniques that I'm dying to try out. So, I'm ready to go full-force through twenty twelve. If you're interested in working with me and can get yo'self to Plymouth, then get in touch, yo! I'm looking for anybody with a fresh style.. Clothes, skaters, dancers.. you name it..

Heres a little image to show my blog some love during December.

Paper Faces

I've got a new photo series underway. I'm trying to combine my photography, illustration and graphic design in one composition. Here's the first two images and I have a few more, slightly unusual, images for the series underway.

If you have been following my blog for a while, then you'll know that I have an urge to launch a T-shirt brand. When I was creating this first image I had my own brand in mind. I would add a bit of text explaining what we sell, then this is the image I would use as part of my marketing campaign.

King of Plymouth 2011

Yesterday was the King of Plymouth 2011. A day of breakdancing, battle DJ's, funky live music, dance crews and friendly competition. It was a sick event and you would be a fool to miss it next year. As usual I took my camera, but didn't get too snap happy with the photos as I was too interested in watching the B-Boys.

Close Encounters

A bit of night time, long exposure photography. Every time we visit this spot I think about capturing this image and finally got around to it..

Coming soon is the B-Boy event of the year [Or, so I have been led to believe].

Make sure you make an appearance and don't miss out on some huge 1 on 1 breakdancing battles and eliminations to see who will be crowned this years King of Plymouth

To help promote the event I hooked up with the Rockafella's responsible for making it all happen to take some photo's. Heres what happened when we hit the mean streets of Plymouth..

16 pixel retouch project

I am fascinated by mainstream media's digital retouching of fashion and lifestyle imagery. The need to create a perfect image of a human being for mass consumerism to desire. Individuality is not important. Conformity is essential. If we do not become this perfect image, then we should not be accepted into society. I have taken it upon myself to clean up photographs of individuals that I meet and remove any imperfections from their image. The numeric values for these people have been presented for you. This will allow us to conform more easily in the future.

New grounds

I like to take photos in urban places. I like the hard lines and man-made textures. I feel like I have more control of my images in the city. While walking around the woods today I found it difficult to find an image that touched me. Nature is pretty, but scruffy. It's my photographers OCD, having to keep images clean and tidy. I didn't take many pictures. About twenty. But, while reviewing them I found these two to be the most interesting.

Nearly Halloween

My girlfriend is preparing for Halloween. So, while she was playing with the make-up, I started playing with my camera and taking some photos.

Christian x vectorthirtythree

Went on another photoshoot yesterday. Once again its all about the fashion photography. I'm still hitting' the mean streets to do my work and this time took the stylishly flamboyant Christian with me. We had a good laugh working together and got some really nice shots. But, I was never quite sure who was in control.. Me, Christian, or his pout ;)

Jack XI - Photoshoot

I was approached by DJ & Producer Jack XI recently and asked for some promo images. So, we got together and did a fashion / style photo shoot for him. During editing I decided to funk the images up a bit with some graphic design elements promoting Jack as an artist. I'm REALLY getting into these shoots now and I'm determined to make each set better than the last. I'm currently hunting some good-looking, charismatic models. Interested?

Boardmasters 2011

Just spent the weekend at Relentless Boardmasters 2011 at Watergate Bay, Newquay. It was a great time and the first year that I have taken a camera. As you have probably seen from my work I have a fascination with people. So, in-between snaps of friends getting extremely drunk, I decided to grab some photos of the more interesting characters in the crowd. The final few images are from the Fatboy Slim set, which was amazing! :) I'm uploading a few more images from the festival on my Flickr. So, head over there and check 'em out!
