m2 Gallery

Located in Surry Hills.

My exhibition has been booked for the 20th of November. 

I will need to organise promotional material, journalists, printing & paper, and my book, by the above date.

paste up, and the cinelli

Ishi wearing our new skull tee in the paste up on the right, and my beautiful bike on the left.

At the moment, i have narrowed down my images to 30 images, which is more than what i was after. I will still be shooting for the next two weeks.

Over the next two weeks i will also be working on my book layout, and promotional material for my exhibition (more details for that in my newer post.)

Slowly narrowing down selections from shooting with Ishi

(this isnt even a quarter of all the images i have selected from the shoot, such a time consuming process)

Ishi Neve

One of the best up and coming tattooists, based on the central coast, and honestly one of the coolest dudes I know.

I was lucky enough to be able to use Ishi as my model for the editorial side of my project. I chose Ishi, as i wanted someone with a distinctive look, someone who will capture peoples attention when they see the image.

From here, the images will be slightly edited (contrast, brightness… thats it, i hate over editing.) Then printed and pasted on walls. From there the images on the walls will be shot as an editorial style image.

(this image is completely unedited)

Been shooting heaps lately, currently planning the studio shoot that will then be pasted up and shot from there.

Ive also decided on the exact paper i will be using, ‘CANSON BFK RIVES 310gsm’

Sending out my proposal to galleries today tomorrow or thursday sometime.

Photo obviously by me, of Chris Logemann, hippy jumping a local fence.

Editorial

Since the outcome of the project will be an exhibition, i will be including roughly minimum 20-30 behind the scenes (BTS), street shots, then 5-10 editorial images. To tie the two types of images together, instead of just having a clean studio based editorial. Ill be shooting the editorial in the studio, the doing paste ups of the images, and then shooting the pasted up shots, in the same style i will be shooting all the BTS shots.

Technical 

I’ve been shooting heaps lately, testing different exposures, and refining my shooting style. Pushing and testing film 1-2 stops, using 1 stop for a slightly less dramatic effect, and 2 stops to give a real rough and raw outcome.

camera: Voigtlander Bessa R2

film: tri-x 400 - shot at 800, pushed 1 stop.

picked up a few rolls a couple of days ago, finally managing to scan them now

Inspiration

Although not the exact style i want to achieve, i do like the idea of the group shot, with just silhouettes, no facial detail.

ICNY
A clothing label made famous for there use of reflective products.
Although the ORDER gear isn’t reflective, I really love the rough raw feel in this image. This is an image I will use as inspiration for my bike shots.

Our setup from the launch party at wasted years on Saturday night.
I shot a few rolls of film, which are going to be processed today.

An exhibition by Andrew Reynolds, the king of skateboarding.

What caught my attention in this image was the way the images are displayed, just pinned up, no frames, just roughly pinned to the wall, yet they are perfectly spaced, showing a sense of attention to detail. A quality we aim to show through ORDER. I can see this working for my major projects exhibition.

Terry Richardson

Raw, uncensored and provocative. A few words that pop into my head when trying to describe Richardson’s photographic style. Often using point and shoot cameras to create candid images, for example the above image of Lady Gaga.

The way he sees each image is something i aim to take from Richardson’s style, each image is something that could never be planned, it is a spontaneous moment. This is something i need to achieve in order to capture an insight into the ‘ORDER’ lifestyle.

ORDER - PRODUCT LAUNCH

On the 2nd of August 2014, ORDER, in collaboration with Wasted Years, will be holding there first product launch. Live music, live art, pop up stall, and much more will be happening on the night.

This is the first product launch for ORDER and myself, so i see this as being a huge opportunity to capture so nice shots

Inspiration…

Supreme, one of, if not the largest ‘street wear’ label at the moment. They are exclusive, raw, and honestly don’t give a fuck what you think.

On the 2nd of August 2014, ORDER, in collaboration with Wasted Years, will be holding there first product launch. Live music, live art, pop up stall, and much more will be happening on the night. 

Although this photo may not be perfectly exposed, perfectly focused, or even perfectly composed, this photo is raw, and all these ‘mistakes’ add to this feel. I will be shooting all areas of the night, so my aim will be to capture the event using a shooting style relevant to ORDER.

I will only be shooting film, as it is my personal preference, and it wont be smart for me to be carrying around multiple cameras. I will be using black and white kodak tri-x 400 film, and testing oush processing, similar to the work of Yamasaki Ko-ji.
