Catching up

Fashion photography, Music, My photography

Oh dear, I’ve very much neglected this blog over the past couple of months. A lot’s been happening!

I’m really looking forward to getting back into blogging regularly and I’ve got lots to update the blog with. Recently I’ve been settling into my new job and adjusting to lots of small changes around me. I think now that uni’s over, things are changing for the better, slowly but surely…

Here’s a quick photo diary of what’s been going on during the last few months…

Next month I’m going to see The Wytches, Drenge, Eagulls and Parquet Courts! I might even get to photograph some of them. Here’s some good ones from some of these guys…

There is an official video for The Eagulls but it doesn’t seem to be working.

I’ll be writing more in my next post, just thought I would do a quick round up seeing as I haven’t posted in a while! More fashion based posts to come 🙂

Here are some pictures from yesterday! They are a follow up to the Bristol graffiti post I posted a few weeks back. Its all part of a feature for Religion magazine, focusing on Bristol’s style. The pictures above were taken at BS8 on park street, an independent clothes shop selling vintage clothing as well as small high street brands. It’s a great place to go if your after something original.

Day in London: Shoreditch

Fashion photography, My photography

Last week I took a trip to London with my friend, to take some photographs for my uni project. The day went really well, although I may have got a bit distracted at the start because we met in Oxford street….

We made our way to Shoreditch about mid-day, thankfully the weather was good. I’ve never been to Shoreditch before, in fact i’m probably a bit clueless when it comes to a lot of London areas, but I really liked it and found it to be very inspiring. There are a lot of vintage shops one in particular called Blitz.

I loved this cupboard! 

Blitz was huge, if I had more time I would have stayed and probably spent a lot of money in there but we were already running short on time. It also had a coffee shop which was cute, definitely recommend to anyone visiting around the area.

Taking photographs of people in Shoreditch was fun, everyone was really friendly and most people were happy to have there photograph taken.

I will be going back there at some point this week to finish my project off. It’s turning into a very expensive year already! Hope to update you soon.

Thanks for reading!

New projects, things to look forward to!

Fashion

Hello! I’m in an excited mood at the moment but also a stressful one… I think its important to have a certain amount of stress in your life otherwise its all pretty mundane.

I’m back at uni and we already have so much work to do. I’m currently working on a 6 week project on street style in London. We have to choose an area of London that’s trendy and interesting, then go and photograph people there. I’m trying to visit Shoreditch this coming Wednesday but I think the weather might let me down. This rain is constant over here in England!

Here are some interesting concepts of different street styles and how its photographed.

Japanese Street Style

Japanese street style

It’s become an interest to everyone, even people that don’t have a specific interest in fashion. The Japanese street style is so unique, and sort of surreal. Pat Lyttle’s book ‘Japanese street style’ is available on Amazon as a paperback.

The Sartorialist

Most people who surf fashion Blogs will have heard of this well known street style photographer. Scott Schuman’s work has also been featured in magazines like GQ and Italian Vogue, along with ad campaigns for DKNY, Gant etc. The way he captures people is really interesting and his collection of images are all so diverse there’s a style for everyone.

Lace top meets leather leggings – a couple that couldn’t be more different but as you know for sure: opposites attract.

We’ll be ‘trick or treating’ in this logo tee!

Zebra Katz has got his eyes on you!

Topshop

If your not already following them on tumblr or facebook then you definitely should do! I’m sure you are… So many well dressed people, so much clothing envy!

I also have a dissertation idea! So far, I want to do a fashion film inspired by Alfred Hitchcocks ‘The Birds’.

And I cannot wait for the BBC 2 film  depicting the manipulative nature of Alfred Hitchcock’s relationship with actress Tippi Hedren. Sienna Miller plays Tippi. I’m not sure when its on but it sounds so interesting. The film is said to suggest Hitchcock blackmailed her into having sex with him by threatening her career.

Fraught relationship: A still from the new film; Hitchcock was obsessed with his star

Thanks for reading! I’ll be updating the blog with progress on my projects shortly. As always any thoughts and comments are very welcome.
