Firstly I must admit I have been lazy and busy why I havent added anything on my blog for months… For this I am sorry
Sharing a little of Henry
Now I saw Adele’s music video (who is my to be wife) which was released yesterday 29th September 2011. Really like videos like this and it suits her. Now the reason I am even blogging about this video is because I had done one of myself and well this song hit home for me. Without going into too much details this song connected with me. I didnt show much people simply because after doing the video I thought it might have made me look like what I am not (more politically correct way of putting it) I hadnt changed the lyrics to put it in my terms and well I basically played the part of Adele (before I even saw her video).
Life goes on and well I have learnt not to hold anything against anyone…. “You live when you have leart… and you learn once you have lived”
Thanks to Stef Cameron my 15yr old cousin who filmed this we spent a lot of time in the living room doing absolutely nothing.
Designer: Stina Gjestrum Larsen
Model: Mona Mi
Photographer: A bit obvious isn’t it
Last year September I was asked to film the Cosy Showfor friends of a friends its was suppose to be straight “biz” nothing else. I really didnt want to do it but I only did because well August would of made it 6 month since I last worked a 9-5 (so yours truly was what you would say in a delicate way BROKE). My first show I was a bit anxious partly because i didnt know what to expect. At the time I had only known of one of the two guys that put the show on, Semo. Matthew the other guy seemed a bit of a panicky prat cause all he did was run around to confirm everything was good (which I later confirmed he actually was, naw am playing)
10 months down the line on Cosy Shows Birthday I have to give alot of respect to both guys especially Matthew, by far two of the most hardest and dedicated men I know in this country (yes I am still saying my visit to England is still just a visit I just decided while I am here I would go to university). Working with them has been a pleasure and they never hesitate to show there appreciation (I still have the New Years and Christmas card from them that I received my January pay from them). It is clear to who ever knows me for Cosy that Cosy is not my job, it has slowly taken over my life I dont just think of it every first tuesday of the month.
Here are a few clips of whats been happening at the cosy show
I asked by a good friend of mine to come down and watch a designer do a shoot, “Her name is Mona Mi” i was told. Went because of who invited me. Very enthusiastic and charismatic person that without a doubt seems to love what she does. I didnt use any pictures of her complete face simply because a couple days later I did a shoot of her with as the model for another designer she is close with. But for now viewers meet Mona Mi.
Met Josh couple months back from a friend of mine I study with. “Joshy boy” Is an actor/musician and you can see a vidI did with him couple months back called “Meeting the High Seas” heard his music and thought I just had to record. The pictures I actually did the same time as the video and also a Actors Monologue (which I cant release,, atleast just yet).
Let me just add that for both picture he was not aware of me taking them, I was always told that although you should wear the clothes and not let the clothes wear you. I am convinced that wearing certain garments brings out a certain character in you and well this I think is a perfect example of it. Putting him in sweat pants and a “hoodie” I am sure this same person would not pose or even behave like this. Now I am not saying he would necessarily act “hood” but he would not see the need to act like a total “debonaire” wearing sweats. This is the opening of street photos. This though is a more recent one but I liked because I think this is what is expected to see. Beware though that what I find interesting might be a WTF for you. All in all I hope you enjoy because I have alot to share
