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?

In Dishonored: The Knife of Dunwall players will take on the role of Daud, the legendary assassin who killed the Empress.
During this Ultimate Games Sale, wherein Microsoft reduced the cost of a bunch of games, I bought:
All in, I spent less then £30! And they are sales they would never have gotten from me at the ridiculous full price. Some of the Games On Demand games are like twice the price of the actual real world boxed retail versions. Which I will never understand. There are no physical overheads to download titles, no disk pressing and manufacturing, no DVD box, no printed manual, no need to ship to a shop, no shop markup etc.
And there is one day of the sale left, so, how knows what else I might buy before the day is out!
Xbox are having a sale on their Games On Demand service!
Now, granted, most of the games are a hundred years old, or have only been discounted a little ( to the point where buying the actual disk pre-owned is still vastly cheaper ) BUT! I got DMMM:Elements for less then £3. Three. Fucking ay!
( Before anyone gives it snash for being and old and buggy and clumsy and possibly shitty game, it’s made by Arkane, who also made Dishonored, and frankly, I love seeing developers who I love style and skills evolve…spot reoccurring trends in their games. So far, the “incidental” AI is of Dishonored quality. Makes the world feel populated and alive! )
An amazing article about a shopping center called Diamond Plaza in downtown Nairobi, that sells hacked versions of games ( mostly just GTA mods on the PS2 ).
Nintendo sleeve. I’m an old school gamer geek. Guess it shows. This one is about life. Going from evil at the bottom to good at the top. We all want extra life, don’t we? Done by the fantastic Mina @ Hawk and Sparrows in Malmö, Sweden.
and it’s really making me want to do a parkour photoshoot.
Or rather, not actual parkour, not actual running-jumping-climbing-trees stuff, but y’know when Altair/Ezio is on a ledge, and he is just sitting there, on his haunches…ready to strike, but stationary. Coiled, about to pounce, pregnant, potential energy….
That. But in “urban” setting. Not a cosplay shoot, just….a normal contemp model, preparing to launch themselves…but not actually going for it.
I’ll just put this in the pile of “photoshoots I’d like to do but will never actually do”. I’ll file it right next to all my urbex ideas.
