Another long wait from the last issue to the current one, but most defiantly a worthy wait. Issue ten is stacked with some great content and I’m proud to say that the profile me and Matt Smith had been shooting for over the summer featured ( Thanks Dave x) Really happy with how it was put together and cant thank Tom enough for his words which really made the profile a true insight into the Matt Smith we all know and love.
I recently got a email from John Adamson about taking part in a online feature based on discussing issues to do with our sport. The first subject was too perfect for myself to not be involved with. The piece featured the first and only shot of a scooter rider on the website of which I shot.
24Skateboards have used a image I shot of Joe Hinson doing a Blunt slide at the infamous T block at Milton Keynes bus station. It was snapped during a shoot that was originally intended to produce images for a interview in the now dead Bleach magazine
Issue ten is going to the printers so what better way to get juiced for that than having a flick through the issue that preceded it. Issue nine with the profile I shot of Leo Oppenheim is now online for all your viewing pleasure. well worth a peep either if you have or haven’t seen it yet.
Kingdom Magazine Feature - The Final Chapter Review
Well the premier has been and gone, the video viewed by a much larger crowd than I ever expect and has since been bounced around Facebook and various blading sites like a high speed ping pong ball. Overwhelmed with the love shown for what we simply did for each other and ourselves. The Baron has been kind enough to write a small Review of the video and the day for kingdom. Big thanks for the support again.
Well this video project really has been a huge undertaking for all involved. All a bit older and all with the complexites of “grown up” life taking hold made it both a struggle but yet still an absolute delight. I honestly never thought I would film anything again let alone something that turned out to be what this has. I have to thank Paul bates first and foremost for believing in a old man and insisting that I had to be a part of the project. Its been a pleasure to work with someone who hold such a similar vision of blading and capturing it. Next up my fellow barbs, I could not have pushed that little bit harder when my body and knees said no more if it wasnt for Joey, Adam and Hammond being right behind me with every clip laced and trick attempted. Last of all I want to thank everyone who has took the time to watch and have appreciated what we have done here, I never expected such a warm reaction. Thank you all for being so kind x
Kingdom Magazine Feature - The Final Chapter Preview:-
With the premier of the video project I’ve been apart of approaching we felt a need to get some more promotion out there for the video and its first showing. Mr McEwan was on the case and got up this nifty little interview up on Kingdom Magazines website, big thank to Kingdom Mag and any one ells who has supported our silly little project.
The third issue of ONE mag’s digital version of their print mag has just gone live and i’m so stoked. I’m always made up at getting worked featured any where but this Spotlight is not only featuring my images but also upon a video project that I’ve been a part of. It has been going on for about the past four years, so its defiantly one thats very close to the heart.Huge thanks to Justin again for support us with this feature, we cant thank you enough dude.
Even though that was defiantly more than enough to be excited about I also got a picture in the Picks section. It features my close friend Leo Oppenheim lacing a sweet Topacid on this high bank to rail with a 80mm flat set up…crazy!
