Holga travels

Wednesday, January 28th, 2009

So i’ve finally gotten round to re sizing some of my 120mm shots from the past 6 months. The majority below are from the trip i took to Tokyo with Bez and were shot with my Holga cam. Until i get an actual section on my site for these shots i will just keep blogging them.

It’s a style of photography that i’ve been growing on alot and although its getting pretty played out at the moment i just love its simplistic nature, it almost seems like it has endless possibilities in which i intend to try and exhaust. Its also nice not knowing what the result will be and the anticipation feeling i get is that similar to when i used to shoot film and develop my own stuff.

In other news, im off to Antwerp for this years Winterclash in February. Promises to be a great weekend so im looking forward to that and then come March i think im off to sun, sand, mexican food and great skatespots, otherwise known as California, can’t wait for that one!

Best add a skate shot to keep it ‘real’ too. Here’s Dirt Box’ Lee Mainland with a front farv to fakie in Bristol, a shot unused from his Kingdom miniview!

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.
