I like to take photos of things. Mostly peoples. Mostly pretty peoples, if I'm honest. But sometimes toys, or dogs, or maybe a tree. Y'know, interesting stuff.
I shoot a few burlesque shows, but that's just to kill time between photoshoots with models, where I can control the light and the pose and the magic.
My photos will have the tag "my photo". Otherwise, it's stolen from the vast wilderness that is the internet. I usually source pics from Model Mayhem, Flickr or We <3 it.
You wanna look me up elsewhere?
Today I bought the new Adventure Time comic, just to get the super cool stickers! I am excite to stick them places!
Today, we went on an adventure to Rozelle / Alloway for an adventure feeding the ducks / touching metal mice!
Soph liked to remind each duck that they were lucky as she threw the bread to them. She then said “Don’t shout at me!” and refused to give bread to one of the ducks.
We went for a mini wander into the woods, but saw neither a Gruffalo nor a Totoro. Sake.
For those poor unfortunate souls who don’t have me on Facebook ( and thus can’t see all the wedding photos ) here’s another wee handful for you!
Waiting for the town christmas lights to be switched on
Whenever I look at amazing, dream models and awesome photographer portfolios, I get a serious malaise about my own work.
And I always look so jealously at these folk living in the big cities, and the studios and locations they have available to them, and the models that live near them and all that…
But while I was out getting my lunch, I realised…maybe being stuck in shitty old Ayr isn’t so bad. Like, there are some AMAZING models in and around Ayr. There are some amazing models who live within traveling distance of Ayr. While there might not be any studios for hire too close by, there are some cracking outdoor locations nearby.
And since Ayr is such a small shithole of a town, there isn’t really many portrait photographers…Which is maybe a good thing. Maybe since every photographer who has any skill has left town, that means I’m the Top Dog by default hahaha
I’ve been saying it for ages, but now that the wedding is by with, I’m gonna have to get cracking and jazz up my portfolio.
Hopefully, November/December I’ll start approaching folk, seeing if they want a wee shoot. As soon as I think up an interesting idea hahahahah
p.s. go and like my Facebook page. I don’t like to be all spammy, but I mean, it’s sorta relevant.
Just had some Visual Communication students in my work, wanting to take photos of some RAM chips and stuff.
They were having a bit of trouble getting their camera to take the photo and I really wanted to take it off them and have a shot, but, if some stranger asked to take a photo with my camera? Pfffft. Good luck, pal!
So, I didn’t even ask.
Found this jacket on River Island website.
But the RI website always makes clothes look nicer than they are in the really real world.
So, I used the “check stock of your local store” option, thinking I could go see it in person
Of like 10 different jackets styles I tried, my local store had none.
Fuck you Ayr River Island. Fuck you.
Big thunderstorm heading to Ayr today, and it’ll be Sophie’s first one.
But she’s in nursery and I’m in work.
I hope she’s ok. But I’m not going to know.
I know that if I was with her, I could calm her down.
Stupid bird was trying to break into my work.
Setting up a photoshoot in the next few weeks, for a makeup artist to do her thing.
She’s wanting to add some quality pics to her portfolio, so we’re looking for a model.
( I had someone in mind, but she’s dropped off the face of the planet. ¬_¬ )
It’s bridal themed, so the makeup and hair will be very traditionally “bridal”. I don’t know what the situation with the wardrobe is, if the wedding (style) dress has been bought/acquired yet, because being able to wear it well would be a bonus. I’ll need to talk to her about that.
I thought I would ask here first, ( because Tumblr is my real family, so you guys get first refusal, ) on the off chance that someone was suitable before we make a casting call on ModelMayhem and Blank Canvas.
It’ll be in or around Ayr. It’ll be a TFCD gig, because it’s just foilio stuff.
Since it’s for the MUA’s portfolio, she would get the final word on who is chosen.
Today Sophie kicked ass at her sports day and won a medal! And not one of those “thanks for taking part” medals, but an actual placed medal. The difference is, gold bronze and silver medals have glitter stuck to them!
Sophie took me a walk into the sea today.
We saw a jelly fish and then kicked the living shit out of a sand castle.
Oh, I remembered who the other look-a-like that I see around Ayr is!
Because she came into the shop!
It’s a girl who looks like one of the twins from Skins…Is it Kathryn Prescott?
I didn’t ever watch Skins, but I’ve seen enough gifs on Tumblr to have decided that they are identical.
I managed to get the place who wrongly processed my 6x6 photos as 6x4 ( thus cropping half the pic away ) to concede and reprint my pictures for free.
2 problems with this, however:
Which, for all my perceived bravado and high-functioning-normality, isn’t a thing I’m good with. I don’t like face-to-face anything, let alone face-to-face explaining that I’m the guy who likely got one of them into trouble and that I now want free stuff from them.
Anyone in Ayr/Prestwick want to do it for me?
i wanna know who it is haha.
So. Do. I. ¬_¬
Bear in mind, due to my caffeine dependency, I’m always either off my tits on coffee/energy drink, or I’m low in a pit of withdrawal, so I might not be seeing the world as clearly as it actually is.
Case in point.
I have also seen, around Ayr:
