I got my dream camera this weekend, a Mamiya 6 medium format rangefinder.
It is literally the most incredible camera i have ever used. Im very much looking forward to producing LOTS of work with it. Its so quick and easy to use and the quality of the lens and the camera itself are the best I’ve ever come across. Better than any Rolleiflex, Leica, Hasselblad, Nikon or Canon camera i can think of.
I ran two test rolls through it at the tattooist below my studio on saturday and spent the day developing the film and prints. Its boosted my thirst for photography! Much more coming very soon!
Two of my very good friends, Nav and Renata, got married a while back. Just before Christmas they moved to Dubai and they have been sorely missed ever since they left. I thought id reminisce by looking through some old negatives and found the images i took whilst Nav was being dressed by his dad along with images at the ceremony. Hope you like them.

I found a lost book of negatives recently. I had pretty much written them off and thought id never find them. However, whilst having a monster cleaning session i found them under the sofa! Obviously?! Safest place for them!
Here are a couple of shots from a Fickle Twin set back in May 2011. These guys are another level of mental. check em out!

My band mates waiting for the bar owner to turn up in Sokolov, Czech Republic, so we can get out the cold and play a show.
Mamiya C220 / Ilford FP4 / ID11 - 11mins
I’ve been looking through some old negatives recently and found some images i took in Brno, Czech Republic whilst on tour. I’d forgotten how interesting the building was that we stayed in. The place was in a pretty bad way but the people that lived there had made it nice and homely. Mostly students and elderly people lived there. The building in the courtyard used to be a bakery for the surrounding apartments. Apparently the proprietor turned to drink some time ago and the place has been left empty ever since.
I took the images on my Mamiya c220. I distinctly remember having trouble with my viewfinder fogging up, the temperature was -20 degrees C! I will never complain that i am cold ever again.
Hope you enjoy the pictures.
I recently had the honor of playing a gig with the mighty Cowtown and they ended up crashing at my house. Heres some photos i took of then the morning after the night before
