1st Diana shots

Bought this diana camera for a few pennies in a market in Bogota. It was cheap cause colombians are not quite so advanced at marketing cheap plastic cameras as expensive must have art accesories. couldnt find a meduim format film in the city in time so the first roll was exposed in, u guessed it, England!

Jamaica

One of the vary rare posts i'll be putting for 4 months. In Jamaica right now going round the island shooting all the good people and searching for the long lost vinyl, hearing painful stories about how they destroyed, played frisby with, and smashed up the 45s. To hell technology and compact discs

City X

There was a day I was taken by high contrast saturated colours. This has not lasted. there is only so much colour I can cope with. And the whole lomography pop hype makes me wanna vomit. Do not ever buy a lomo lca for more than its worth, a fiver. They go for 60 to 100 pounds on ebay. people are getting ripped off. It's a shit russian made plastic lens compact camera. I have to hand it to the marketing company though who have built a cult following of inimaginative little fools willing to pay a fortune for this camera. If you want to have a go at this, I did and it was fun, buy a cheap camera with shit lens for 3 pounds. Although I dont wanna advertise this, these were taken with a vivitar ultra wide somthing something, cross processing some expired slide film. Some people say they are the poor man's lomo..but i have seen some cheeky fuck selling them for 30 pounds on ebay because of its new found status. Jokers!!

Lipstick and Lace shoot


This is the first lot if pictures that came out of the shoot for Lipstick and Lace. All improvised having no lights, no background or fancy flashes. I was granted a couple of umbrellas to block of the sunbeams that came to annoy us later on in the days. Apart from battling with nature the background was 3 sheets of wallpaper stuck together with masking tape and the light was provided by god through a windowed roof (don't know what the proper name is). And a proper (or unproper in this caes) photoshoot with a woman in sexy dresses wouldn't be complete without a set of builders peering through from the building site opposite.
