The Weird & Wonderful × North West Barber Co
A few months ago I was contacted by Norman, he had just started renovating a new retail space to be the home for his store The Weird & Wonderful. The Weird & Wonderful is a Natural History store specialising in the highest quality taxidermy, osteology, entomology and oddities from around the world. And just when you […]
AnyForty Versus Volumes, Chapter 01 Lookbook
Last month I shot down to London to shoot chapter one of the very first AnyForty Versus Volumes range. As normal the weather was against us but we powered through and got some awesome shots. I even managed to get a little studio session in after bumping into a friend who had setup a pop up studio — nice!
Tom Exton Folio Shoot Highlights
Recently Spadge was contacted by a friend of hers — Tom. He’s been hanging out with some model types in Paris & they had managed to convince him to build a portfolio.
AnyForty — Spring/Summer 2013 Lookbook
I recently shot the new lookbook for AnyForty Spring/Summer 2013 rage. This collection celebrates their fifth year of dropping sick designs — Blood, Sweat & 5 Years.
Stay Dead/Stay Lucky
My friend Daniel aka Baker2D has been putting out some pretty rad T’s recently. He asked me to do a couple of shots for him to use for promo and on his store. I went for a high key look using a white wall in my house & a bit of strobist magic.
AnyForty — Autumn/Winter 2012 Lookbook
Last weekend I was lucky fortunate enough to work with the AnyForty family again, this time shooting the new Autumn/Winter 2012 Lookbook. The weather was dull, overcast & spitting — a perfect contrast to the Spring/Summer range I shot earlier this year & ideal for the autumnal feel we wanted.
WAY back in January 2011 I shot this image for my buddy John O’Nolan. It was to be used as the cover for his soon to be printed/published book ‘Designing Emotion’. However it was not the smoothest of endeavours for John, he describes his book writing process as “a terminal plague on the soul”. You can read the finer points of the process on John’s blog but the crux of it is that he will now be publishing his book himself, for free, online chapter by chapter at emotion.onolan.org! How cool is that! It was an awesome project to get involved with, & I even enjoyed the 10 hours of photoshopping I went thorough to complete the composite.
In May I did a shoot for independent UK streetwear brand Vapour Clothing. Working with brands like these guys is one of my favourite things to do. Vapour sent me a few items from their current range to shoot for a Summer lookbook. I shot in a city park in Lincoln at golden hour, of course shooting into the sun a whole bunch because I can’t get enough of that.
AnyForty — Australian Invasion
At the start of April this year I got to shoot the new AnyForty Spring/Summer 2012 range dubbed “The Australian Invasion” featuring work from some of Australia’s best artists including Beastman, Dale & Ben Bigeni, Numskull, Ben Brown & more. I always love working with the AnyForty family when they put out any new products. We headed back up to London Fields, the same location we used for the ’11 Crewneck Lookbook shoot.
