The other day, I got a text from SJ Whiteley of Built For Sin Apparel, asking me if I wanted to shoot some pictures of their new “Dead Men Tell No Tales” Vest (click to view), as I leave just round the corner and she needed them done ASAP, in time for all you guys to buy them for xmas!
Of course, I said yes, especially as I could do with some experience in shooting ‘Models and Portrait’.
So the next day, I went round and shot some pictures in their living room.
They were more than hospitable, helpful and fun, they knew exactly what they wanted and were extremely nice in making sure I was comfortable and everything was fine. I had a great shoot, of which I got all the pictures sorted and posted the disc round to them later that night after work.
I’m fairly pleased how they turned out and I’d love to do some more shots like this in the future! So if you want any done, holla me up! Check out the new vest on facebook here.
And props out to Tom and SJ! This ones for you…..
This weather has been miserable, so its been difficult to get photos and an update in a while, so I thought I’d treat you guys with something different (not BMX) for a change.
There’s a abandoned mental hospital near us recently they have started turning into flats and apartments, if you ask me, with all the stories and events that have gone on there, you’d have to have some guts to move in…although, I am a pussy.
Nevertheless, the Children’s Ward/Nurses Building is still up and someone has conveniently cut a square whole in the fence recently.
As I have never ventured in there, I thought it would be worth a look and taking my camera in with a couple of friends, who…at the moment are filming a film called ‘Paranormal Bacon’.
That day was a right laugh, after we had visited Park Prewett, we went back and devised a plan to break into a friends house and fuck shit up, without him knowing, then filming it and see how freaked out he was……..and I have to say, it worked perfectly, it was so funny.
I have a feeling that will be edited up into a video, so stay tuned for it, as well as the Paranormal Bacon mini film….stay tuned for that too.
So, here for you, right now, are the pictures I took at Park Prewett and the Trailer for the mini film ‘Paranormal Bacon’ which is COMING SOON!!

Mikey has bee saving a load of clips he has been taking while out and about doing his thing and having a good time.
Well at least this is what he says on FFWDBMX.
Mikey, to say the least, is an amazing filmer, even if I do hate him with all my heart and it pains me to compliment him, god I hate that guy.
But here is the Summer Edit he put together, and it’s fucking RAD and as twitter suggests he is “Stoked on how this came out”, and along with the edit below, here is a top 5 interview he had for >>>> rideUKBMX.
Even though Chunky is basically disabled, this boy never ceases to amaze me when he asks me to come down and take a picture of him because he has learnt flairs onto the box.
I didnt believe him at first, mainly, because he is full of shit 85% of the time, but nevertheless I went down and asked him to do one quickly before I set up…….this resulted in him nearly doing a 360 flip and landing straight on his bad leg.
So what did he do?…..he got up and did it again so I could do the picture……
Enjoy (click to enlarge)
My mate just sent me this link, FATBMX used one of the pictures I shot at King Of Southsea at the end of August for FFWDBMX for an interview with Ben Cobley, and he also listed me as his favourite photographer, so that’s left me pretty stoked really.
Sorry for the delay on this, considering Budget Jam was almost a month ago now.
But here it is, finally. Video/Photo Budget Jam Exclusive, so feast your eyes on some never before seen pictures from FFWDBMX and a brilliant new video from Mikey King.

So yesterday, I was having a lazy day, due to having a day off in the middle of the week and the weather being absolute crap recently. I was minding my own business when the ‘facebook pop’ sounded, and Usher was asking me if I was heading down the park, I wasnt planning to, but I decided I might as well as it wasnt raining for once.
Usher asked if I’d have my camera, kind of a stupid question really, but I assumed he wanted some pictures, so after I waited down there for about an hour because he is a longggggg cat, I got some pictures of him, after I got the rest of my photos for that night, which meant I was basically taking photos in the pitch black, but here they are never the less.
Feast your eyes upon the Usherbot.
Well these pictures are an anti climax really, James iced the whole of this ledge, so I set up to take a picture, and I jinxed him by saying “is this going to be another pedal hang five fiasco”, which basically refers to a time I spent about 2 hours sitting on a cold floor because James was trying a pedal hang five across this ledge and kept catching his back tyre when dropping off the end, and he’s a perfectionist, so I kept having to get another picture because he wanted the one he pulled.
Now, I was joking when I muttered these words, but his hub guard kept getting caught and he was either going into feeble or looping out at the end of the ledge….then he fell off, onto his bad arm that he recently had surgery on….so we decided to stop before he really injured himself.
But I am a witness, he did pull it, I just havent got a picture of it, but here’s a couple from his last try 🙂
This boy has been getting increasingly good recently, and after coming 1st in Amateur at Budget Jam 2010 he has been riding harder than ever.
Yesterday I went down the park to find out he had downwhip airs now, so after I set up some flashes to get a picture, he does it twice for me and thats that, no constantly slipping pedals or inconsistency with this mofo.
Then just as I was ready to pack up, we got a couple more shots, so here are the outcomes.
As always, click to enlarge.
Well, usually the day after budget jam is just as good as budget jam itself, but we live in england, so the weather is a piece of shit, and after the budget jam after party antics and the amount of alcohol consumed, pretty much everyone had gone home before I woke up from my hangover.
But nevertheless I headed to the skatepark to see who was there and ended up getting a couple of pictures.
Nothing special as I really couldn’t be bothered to set my flashes up, theres just a couple of the street boss Jake Murphy and some of Basingstoke’s newly appointed 1st place Amateur at budget jam 2010, Craig Sims.
So check them out, or don’t, I have nothing to prove to you, ok?
