Well what a busy couple of weeks – promise I’ve not been hiding!
Have been flat out on a number of shoots, including my very good friends wedding which I was covering [no pressure then], couple of video jobs and some lighting work – all in very good fortnight. In that time I have found that I adore Whitstable, the Marine hotel is a really nice spot to stay at, Next really do make a nice suit and sunburn does hurt. Profoto heads get very hot [kind of knew this already, but clearly not learnt] and the GoPro hero black is awesome – as kit goes it doesn’t get much cooler – more on that another time though.
I’ve been harvesting and stashing the cool stuff for all you lovely folks, here we go –
Über cool upcycling.
So what happens when your girlfriend has some unwanted denim, oodles of talent and a sewing machine? The best cushion ever. As you may have gathered I have a fondness [obsession] for denim so when I was given this I was made up.
Doesn’t get much better than a custom Diesel cushion, with working pockets, does it? Nah.
Know us creative types like pretty stuff around them, but if I worked at any one of these places am pretty sure I’d spend my day either playing with stuff, lounging in relaxation pods or just looking at where I worked. Not sure I’d work there for very long granted.
Big is cool.
Not convinced it’s very green, or would fit down roads or in any UK car park but am sure you could get a lot of camera gear in it. And scare G-Wiz’s.
Worked with quite a few MUAs – none like this though.

|RIP HR Giger – you were cool.|
Know it was a few weeks back the great man left us but wanted to mention him here as his work had a massive impact on me. If you’ve seen any of the Alien films you will of course know his work on the concept design of the alien – remember to this day the first time I saw Alien – that has stuck with me a long time. Giger’s work was so much more than just Alien, he produced a lot of paintings, sculptures and models, many of them very dark. I’m not one to claim I understand art, but i certainly know what makes a lasting impression and HR Giger certainly did that for me.
Cool doesn’t quite cut it.
Only thinking the other day I could really do with a point and shoot then I saw this. Am sold. Just need to root around down the back of the sofa a bit [help if I owned one].
Nice design and shiny.
As per usual finishing on a fashion bit. Loved the images in this set, real cinematic quality about them.
Better crack on with the editing, should have something pretty to show you all soon – watch this space. As always ta for reading, back soon.
