Been a while….america is over and it was great, home for a short while then ive just returned from a quick trip to Sydney where i was visiting my brother and surprising my parents, worked a treat..tears ‘n all! Also joined the valo boys for a few days and then local rippers Rian Arnold and Cj wellsmore who are now living with Dom West and whom also skate with foreign import Richie Eisler!!! So Sydney really is the place to be!

Then the day after these guys leave i am shooting long time friend Paul Hardwicks wedding, so thats gonna be a blinder and then the day after that i am off to Germany for a powerslide sales meeting.

Roadtrippin’

Friday, February 20th, 2009

So the winterclash has come and gone, so i thought i’d best post a few photos of our travels which were further than anticipated. Despite the park burning down the event was still alot of fun and i highly advise Antwerp to anyone, great city and from what i gathered a great sense of fashion.I picked up some new cameras whilst there too, a supersampler by lomo and also a Diana F with a 35mm back. So all these alongside my holga, expect to see some beauties soon, most likely from my California to Idaho trip arriving VERY soon, in the words of biggie ‘im going going, back back, to Cali Cali’ and i can’t bloody wait!

That car you see is Mike Wellands, Joe Coyne being the lazy man he is thought he’d get as close to the outdoor park as he could, so he drove onto grass and quickly realised he was in some form of marsh land and was quickly sinking.

I don’t know what was funnier, seeing the car wheel spinning heaps of mud into everyones faces and going deeper and deeper into the earth or the mental russian dude that walked over at a quick pace appearing to want to fight but then settling for peeing very close to or on Mikes stranded car!

The photo of Nick is a strange one. I guess this Italian restaurant were onto some next level brainstorming where they thought giving you a vibrating piece of plastic that buzzed when your food was ready was far more advanced than a waiter serving you, damn MS!

Happy New Year to anyone who reads this. Spent a bit of time in our nations capital shooting an interview with Valo’s Leon Humphries for an upcoming Be-Mag. Also Hung out with UK Nimh rider Matt Chilvers who’s grown a great beard since i last saw him, i also got to see Matt Watt whom i hadn’t seen for a life time who is making a new Skate video at the moment, to see more of his work check out www.hotmilkfilms.com. I then carried on onto Folkstone to spend xmas down there.

Then more recently i just went down to Birmingham as good friend and old roomie Brian ‘Barno’ Barron came over from Dublin with Albert Hooi to stay with Si Cox, also another old roomie. The weather was painfully cold so not much productivity as far as photos but we did make this box edit.

In other photo news, my shot of Alex Broskow in London has been used for their recent DVD production ‘We Are Valo 3′.

Then also the 4×4 DVD Drip Drop has just come out,a team who’s videos set the standard for the future of skating whom i have been very lucky to shoot with on numerous occasions. Most recently Chris Farmer as he shot an interview for Kingdom Magazine, below is the trailer for the new video and some of the photos we ran in his interview.

4×4 Drip Drop

On a final note, i received a great bit of Spam mail on this blog recently, its so great that i thought i would share it with you all,

New Be-mag

Saturday, November 29th, 2008

So the new issue of be-mag has just hit the shelves, i have a few photos in this issue, a USD advert of Dominic and a sequence of Demetrios from when he was over for tour.

In other news i got some really nice holga photos back, did alot of experimenting with these and it turned out pretty cool, will upload them as soon as they have been published.

This week i also joined my old roomie Ben Shelbourne aka ‘Slick’ as he was filming Alex Burston for his upcoming video and for the first time ever i got numb fingers when trying to shoot, basically 5 paper weights for fingers, it was utter useless’ness, so i guess thats an indication of how the weather is right now, not much fun i can tell thee in comparison to 4 weeks ago shooting in sunny Spain.

On a final note, check out this band, i went to meet some friends on the random as i had been couped up in my house all day working, turned out there was a gig on upstairs so i gave it a whirl and my god was that a good decision to make, one of the coolest nights and gigs i been to. If they are ever playing near you, i HIGHLY recommend it, oodles of talent and energy for one family to have.
