Delighted to be involved with an online auction of 8 of my signed portraits of Iriah band The Strypes who I photographed in 2012 for my collection. The band are ambassadors with Enable Ireland and together we have these pieces at the attached link..thanks to the lads and Enable Ireland.
Having made arrangements to shoot the lads portraits in Belfast..we decided to do a mini shoot and have some fun. I admire where these gentlemen have taken who and what they are, they have a fan base and they use it to educate people..make them laugh..inform and make them dance..what is not to love..aswell as wearing plastic bags on their heads..not black or white or rich or poor or anything.
I’ve always wanted to try some serious mountain biking and picked up a bike last year which I hadn’t really tried out. I got an invite to try out this track on the way to Glendalough in Ballinastoe which was about 25km of 15 trials..some flat and some full on 45kph downhill. Thanks to Tadgh for being my guide for the day and looking forward to heading back soon.
Having worked on the art for Mr Cas on the last few mix he has released (https://www.mixcloud.com/MrCas/) I had asked him could we collaborate on a piece together where he would do the score for a video project of a number of GoPro videos I have shoot over the last while in different locations. In doing this..I decided to ask a number of people to get involved such as the wonderful Arlene Caffrey from Irish pole dancing academy (http://irishpoledanceacademy.com/), I had also done a project a few years back with Dublin Thai Boxing (www.facebook.com/dublin.thaiboxing) so I approached the gentleman that is Paddy Douglas who was training for an upcoming title fight to get involved along with members of Dublin Thai boxing.
This is the first of two pieces I am doing with Mr Cas and look forward to adding more to the collection soon.
I would like to thank everyone who has been involved and help inspire,
Trailer for a piece I’m working on with good friend DJ Cas. It’s an interesting thing to try video and what it can do as well as having a score to work into it..thanks to Chris and and all who have got involved so far..more to follow.
I was lucky enough to be able to do a portrait shoot with the excellent Waldorf and Cannon who were supporting Frank Turner on some of his Irish leg of his tour. I’ve been playing around with my GoPro camera taking some wider angle images on a remote system and expected the Academy to be a good venue for this so I decided to shoot a video of a song which I have linked below. Thanks again to the lads and Frank for a great night.
A project I’ve been working on for the last number of weeks documenting the fall of the last tower in Dublin’s Ballymun, changing the landscape of the city forever.
