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?
This is my second Fathers Day.
It’s been great. I don’t just mean today, I mean all of it. The past ( just under ) 2 years have been the best of my life. The tired-est, sure, but also the best.
My little family mean everything to me.
In the years to come to come, I hope that if ever I feel down…If ever I feel like it’s all too much or I feel like I don’t understand my daughter, I hope I think back to this this, where she shouts for daddy when she is hurt, sad, upset, bored, happy or other.
A time when her whole world is just mummy and daddy.
What I realised a few weeks ago is that I *know* Sophie. Like, I know what she wants even when she’s not overly clear in asking, even sometimes when she doesn’t know herself yet…I know. I know what she likes, and I know how to make her laugh. I know that when she is moody it’s nothing personal, and she doesn’t love me any less. And I know that she loves me.
I find it weird because I assume that my mum and dad knew me that well once too. I say it’s weird because to look at us now…I don’t feel like my mum or my dad really know me at all.
Anyway, I’m rambling. Away and have a lovely fathers day, or what’s left of it.
JCPenney Responds to Homophobic Boycott Calls with Gay Father’s Day Ad
In what appears to be a direct response to the failed boycott campaign of anti-gay group One Million Moms, JCPenney yesterday unveiled a new Father’s Day ad featuring a same-sex couple playing with their children.
According to the company, the two men who appear in the ad are “real-life dads Todd Koch and Cooper Smith,” and the jubilant children are their kids, Claire and Mason.
"First Pals: What makes Dad so cool?" reads the ad’s copy. "He’s the swim coach, tent maker, best friend, bike fixer and hug giver - all rolled into one. Or two."
Back in February, the department store chain faced criticism from the American Family Association’s One Million Moms project for its hiring of Ellen DeGeneres to be the company’s new spokesperson. JCPenney refused to submit to the group’s bullying, and stuck by DeGeneres.
