Goodbye to the noughties

See the noughties out and the new year in by celebrating with your nearest and dearest over a few to many drinks. Grab that bottle and make NYE 09 a night to remember that we all forget.

Here's to 2010, cheers to you all

Do you want to go to the seaside?

These pictures are from my few days at the beach. I took all these at Point Lonsdale. The pier is incredible, so old and beaten by the coastal weather and many years of use, it oozes character as does the light house. A beautiful & tranquil place, nothing but the sound of the water to be heard. Perfect.

The Paddock

Sorry the blogs been quiet for the past week, been pretty hectic as I'm now living in Melbourne, Australia. Since Thursday 3rd its been a crazy mess of goodbye parties, drinking, traveling, drinking, catching up with people here in Melbs, getting settled in and more drinking.
However amidst the madness I managed to get these photos at a paddock where two of my cousins out here keep their horses. Beautiful scenery, dramatic Melbourne sky. Love it.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck?

Don't forget to have your fire wood ready like the gorgeous Jess here, its that time of year again where its cold outside and a cosy fire is the number one plan.

Spiral staircase going down

Here is another photo from the shoot on Saturday. This one features Katie Crouch looking rather seductive on a spiral staircase wearing not much more than an umbrella.

Let me stand next your fire

So I was asked by my friend Emma if I could help her out and take some photographs of her and some of her friends who are doing an art course at the University of East Anglia, to be made into a calender they want to sell to raise money to go towards their end of year show. Naturally I said yes.

We went out to an amazing old house in the beautiful Suffolk countryside yesterday, totally in the sticks, to shoot for the day. The day was fueled by coffee, pizza & slo gin, it was a really fun day thanks to all the girls.

I'll let you know when/where the calender is available once it is made, which shouldnt be long at all, it will also be dead affordable.
The photos will gradually appear one by one on here to.

Here is the first photo which features Emma Daniels sat by the fire knitting herself some clothes to wear as she somehow completely forgot her out fit, woops....... enjoy.

Adam Howe: seeing is believing

Here is Adam Howe, fs smith to fs 360 out sequence and a couple of portraits which we shot last week.

I've known Ad for years and been capturing him skating since the day we met, he has literally never stopped progressing on his skateboard. No matter what changes for him in his life or in the skateboarding world, he has always remained the same person. Always a pleasure to be out with, forever pushing himself forward and a lot of fun to be around.
Dont ever play s.k.a.t.e with him and expect to win. You will get shut down! Seeing him is believing. He is someone who I consider one of my closest friends and also one of my favorite skateboarders. I hope you enjoy Adams skating as much as I do.

Watch Adam on the team SHINER edit at...
please vote for the SHINER edit to help Adams crew win.

And Now...

Here is a shot I took of Si Gray, the mind & driving force behind new band in the making "And Now..."
The band were fortunate enough to have a song titled "John Dillinger" featured on the skateboard dvd which came free with this months Sidewalk Skate Mag, "The Big Push 09" on the Team Shiner edit.
you can watch the edit and vote for Shiner at
please vote for Shiner, the boys need your support.

Si is currently working on new material for "And Now..." and searching for a bassist, expect them to be gigging early in the new year. I've previewed the songs Si has written, recorded & deemed 90% of the songs "not up to scratch" and its all brilliant stuff, I cant wait to hear what he's working on now.
Si is an amazing musician, an undeniable talent at its rawest. Definitely one to watch and not to be taken for granted.

Look out for "And Now..."

Carl Vance

I bumped into Carl Vance at ABD Skate shop on his most recent visit back to Ipswich. (Last time we saw each other, we were both a little worse for wear at Uttys wedding reception...)
So we decided to go for a sesh at the new Felixstowe skate park. After both slamming because of stones, slippery surface & pikey kids we shot this photo of a true Vance styled boosted yet relaxed 360 flip before he headed back to Bristol. He's still got it.

Here are two shots of Chandos from a couple of weeks back, same trick, different angles.
I know both these photos arent great, my fault, was rushed because it was starting to rain so didn't get properly setup so apologies for that. However, this trick is amazing so the photos go up regardless! Pole jam to hippy hop off the end... its got Chandos written all over it!
He is one of my favorite people to skate with and to just be around, there is nobody like him. Such a colorful person in every sense.

Blacktop Harrison

Blactop Harrison, the outstanding rock/metal band from Ipswich launched their brand new album titled "No Direction - Semaphore" on the thursday night just gone by. The four piece band played to a full house at The Blue Room, premiering songs from the new cd which sounded great. Blacktop play with power and finesse which seems to be a rarity in bands these days. This quality is also there in abundance on there recordings. A complete pleasure to hear and to see perform.

The band also have some music featuring on
The Big Push 09 DVD on the TEAM SHINER edit. which is out free with this months Sidewalk skate mag. You can also view Big Push at...
