Zeitgeber starring Gestalta

During a sweeping visit back to Blighy in July 2013, I went to Wiltshire and experimented with taking video footage on a Canon 5DmkII with a Lensbaby Muse.  Consequently here’s a little atmospheric semi-narrative music video for my friend Eigenfrequenz’s song ‘Frequenz 18: Zeitgeber’, starring Gestalta as (according to my ad hoc analysis) a “romantic but morbid girl, a bit of a loner, lost in her own world and somewhat obsessed with death” floating around in the swelteringly hot rural English summer meadows thinking dark thoughts.

“the plan was simple, just walk around the centre of Bristol and react and shoot what we find. […] Rebecca is a truly awesome model to work with, i just love her looks, she always look like she has something to say and you want to listen.”

portraiture with Andreas Neubauer

Last March, I hitched a ride to Munich to be photographed by Andreas Neubauer. I say ‘be photographed by’ rather than ‘shoot with’ or ‘model for’, because this time the whole thing really felt more like he was taking my portrait. Maybe I was modelling as myself.

a girly shoot

Hotel Estherea, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

Hotel Estherea, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

When I was in Amsterdam last February, I did a shoot with a lovely lady called Yolande de Kort in a lovely lovely hotel called Hotel Estherea. Here are some iPhone snaps which I took in the lobby. Stained glass on the ceiling. Plants growing indoors. It is the embodiment of feminine happiness. Continue reading

Also in February (2013), I worked with Stephen Roberts, a Brit living in Luxembourg, using one of my favourite lighting setups – the ringflash combined with ambient light. I think it makes just about any genre of people-photography look fashionarty. Likewise bubblewrap as a form of makeshift clothing. That’s all. Here are the results.

Switzerland in January

I’ve been almost perpetually in a state of being ‘on tour’ since the beginning of this year, but now I’m back at my base in Berlin for just about long enough to sit down and record some of my adventures on the bloggy thing. I also started using tumblr within the last 24 hours, and much of the content between this blog and that one will overlap, though this one will involve more discursive writings from time to time, and tumblr will be for piccies.

So I started the year with a Europe tour beginning in Switzerland. A short documentation of my little excursion, starting with Zurich, featuring Amriswil and concluding in Luzern.

Reykjavík’s neat hour

My second installment of iPhone vid tributes to cool cities. Reykjavík, capital of Iceland, veritable world-class partying town, a considerably cool and cute city on that eccentric island floating in the North Sea. This is Reykjavík’s New Year celebrations which they take very seriously (in so far as they take anything seriously). Music is ‘Reykjavík’ by Sykur. The lyrics in the chorus ‘Reykjavík ϸú vekur mig’ mean ‘Reykjavík you wake me (up)’.
