Things I’ve been listening to and looking at

Fashion, Fashion photography, Music

At the moment I’m having a bit of a mental/inspirational blockage with my FMP. I’m sort of in between sorting it all out and desperately trying to find things that inspire me and give me idea’s.

Marcus Ohlsson, a fashion and beauty photographer from Sweden has caught my eye recently. I buy Elle every month, I think they have some of the best editorials, and this month I noticed he had photographed quite a few of them. A lot of his stuff is photographed quite close up which I love, and you can tell he focuses a lot on shape. Here are some of my favourite photographs of his…

I have been so excited about all the new amazing bands at the moment. Over the last few years, I’ve been a bit bored by modern day band music, but recently there has been a surge of new and interesting music.

PeacePeace are from Birmingham, they are indie…. not that there is anything wrong with indie, because its probably what I listen to most but I say indie with caution.  This is because a lot of recent indie music has been kind of crap (in my personal opinion). Peace are really REALLY good though, their debut album is out in just under a week I think, and it’s meant to be amazing. Listen to their cover of  ‘1998’ originally by Binary Finary, that track isn’t going to be on the debut (http://www.nme.com/news/peace/69258). It was on some horse racing advert for channel 4.

SPLASHH1

Splashh are from all over, Australia, New Zealand and the UK. Listen to ‘All I wanna do’, I am so addicted to this song.

If you haven’t heard of these bands you should definitely give them a listen, they have restored my faith in music! I can’t talk about music anymore because I will go on and on and I don’t want to force all my favorite bands upon you. Hope you found this post interesting, useful, inspiring or just OK.

Working on my magazine!

Fashion, Fashion photography, My photography

 

 

 

So I’m still working on my Final Major Project which eventually will be a magazine. At the moment i’m trying to decide what should be the cover, however I haven’t taken all my photographs yet but it’s just to get the ball rolling! I chose the name Religion, because I think the word looks good and calling any new business ‘Religion’ makes sense if you want people to follow it. It also reflects the fashion trend of religious crosses on everything at the moment. I’m not religious!

Here are a few ideas I have at the moment. Of course it could change as I will be taking more photographs. Most people seem to like the 3rd cover down best?
