Relentless Freeze 2011

Another year went past and another visit to Relentless Freeze came up. As per usual I decided to arm myself with my SLR and head to Battersea Power Station. After an hour long struggle to get a media bib so I could get up to the jump, I had to blag my way up there and compete with 30 other photographers for a spot. Seems that it’s become slowly more popular with the world’s media and looks like it’ll be heading that way for some time to come. But I digress…

Here’s a selection of photos I managed to get from the event. They aren’t very good, I’ll be the first to admit that but you do what you can eh?! I think I need a new camera…

The Wedding Polaroid

Come on everyone, let’s be honest, we all love a good wedding. From watching the awkward uncle throw down some shocking dance moves while the fat cousin chows down on the fondue, which always looks suspiciously like someone has liberated their stomach lining into it.

At the majority of weddings there’s some bloke who’s been paid an absolute fortune to drag along his Canon 550d to take the best posed shots you’ve ever seen. He’s also got to take some photos that aren’t meant to look posed but they are posed, but not meant to look posed, without seeming like they’re not posing by posing in a way you aren’t posing. Yeh…
So anyway. I spotted the Impossible Project (who I’ve written about before) tweet this absolute delight out. It’s from a couple’s wedding and they took a lot of shots on polaroids and, well, it just makes it look ten times better. I’ll let you decide but I think it looks f*cking awesome.

The 90th Birthday

The 90th birthday of any person is always an event to be taken notice of but when it’s someone in your family it’s an even bigger deal.

Dear Photograph

Some people say that they don’t like their boss but mine send me links to amazing websites like this.

Dear Photograph

This site is incredible. It’s everything I like about photos and more. I am a huge fan of old photographs, especially when they’re not yours, and there’s nothing to hate about this website. The idea is that people go back to a place where the original photo was taken and then take a photo of themselves holding the old photo in the place where it was shot. That’s a ridiculous explanation but hopefully the screen shot of the website will explain it a little better.

Dear Photograph

If you’ve got a old photo and know exactly where it was taken then I urge you to get involved on this site. It’s already making me want to add to my collection of old, random slides. Maybe I should put them on here…….

The Impossible Project – the new Polaroid film

The Impossible Project

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a bit of a crush on Polaroids. They’re the best type of photographs out there because every single shot tells a story no matter how dull or exciting. When Polaroid announced they were stopping production on their film it was a pretty sad day for everyone that has ever taken a photo but luckily there’s people out there that don’t believe the legacy should be forgotten so easily.
Take a look at The Impossible Project. They’re making film for your Polaroid camera and having exhibitions all over the world as well.

Brighton Festival: Fire Night – Sunday 8th May

Fire festival - crowd and tree

This has to be one of the best invitations I’ve had for a while and it will always cement how good the Brighton Festival actually is. I’ve always known about the Brighton Festival but have never really taken in any of it so this was a happy blessing! Read the rest of this entry

BHAFC Victory Parade

It’s been one hell of a year for Brighton & Hove Albion Football Club! With a new stadium pretty much completed at Falmer, there was only one way to cap it all off and that was by winning League One with style. They held a victory parade along Brighton seafront on Sunday (May 8th) with a pretty decent turn out. Here’s a few pictures from the day.
