Prefab77 at the printers

Posted in Art work, Photography, Screen Printing by Richard on May 8, 2012

Long time friends, regular clients and co-conspirators Prefab77 recently asked if I would come with them to the printers as their latest edition of 5 new prints were expertly produced.  It’s always great to see artists work being produced in front of you, especially when it’s of such a high standard.

Pixels of Pancho

Posted in Art work, Graffiti, Photography by Richard on March 6, 2012

So I’m just back from a nice little pedal down to Hoults Yard in Newcastle to see how the first artist in this years series of the White Walls Project was getting along.  And the answer is: he’s smashing it! as you can see from the pictures below.  Pixel Pancho is going to be in residence all this week working on his wall and some canvases (which I’m looking forward to seeing too), so I’ll post some images of the finished piece at the weekend.

Old camera, new photos

Posted in 35mm by Richard on November 14, 2011

I picked up a lovely little Ricoh 500G 35mm rangefinder at a carboot sale for the princely sum of………. £1.00!! The new battery for it cost me more!  I’ve shot a couple of films through it now with mixed results, on one hand the light leaks are lovely.  But on the other,  just realising now it’s a bit broken and it’ll only shoot in f16 when in shutter priority mode has been a bit of a bugger as I’ve lost some potentially nice shots. Oh well……

Red Bull Mini Drome.

Well, it was a long day, but what a day it was!!

Congratulations to Toms for not only winning but also setting a new world record in the process!!

A massive thanks to the lovely folks at Red Bull for asking me to shoot the event.

It’s a bit blurry…

I recently borrowed a lovely 24mm Canon tilt-shift lens for photographing building exteriors for a client.  I’m not going to post any of those photos here but I did get a little chance to shoot some other pictures with it that are below.

A bridge too far.

Posted in Fixed Gear Bikes by Richard on June 29, 2010

Last Sunday morning I hopped on the train with my camera and my bike and headed down to York to meet some of the nice folk who ride fixed gear in that neck of the woods, and take some pics at the ‘A Bridge Too Far’ alleycat.

Wor’ Kid!

Posted in Art work, Graffiti by Richard on June 28, 2010

Very big things have been happening (quite literally) on street art scene in Newcastle this week with the arrival of Kid Acne and a lot of paint.  The Sheffield based artist was the first of several ‘big names’ to come and throw some paint about as a part of the Hoults Yard Project this week.  For 3 long sunny days I took photos, climbed ladders, helped to paint the wall – and myself and all my kit with very sticky gloss paint, and wished for cups of tea when “there’s only water!”.

Barcelona

Posted in Fixed Gear Bikes, Graffiti by Richard on April 14, 2010

We went to Barcelona the other week with the fixed gears and had an awesome time if you haven’t already heard.  All the pics here were taken on my phone (as usual) as my DSLR stayed in the safe in my hotel room the whole time due to Barca’ being literally full of thieves, my habit of falling of my bike and breaking things (usually bones) and because I’ve not had the films from my lomo developed yet.  I’m saving the actual riding kind of shots for a post on Breaksof10.com when I pull my finger out and get it sorted, so ladies and gentlemen without further adieu I give you ‘Barcelona’

Blasting off the cobwebs

Posted in Fixed Gear Bikes by Richard on January 24, 2010

I’ve been dying to get back out into the countryside and do a half decent number of miles for what seems like ages now, especially as we’ve booked flights to Barcelona at the end of March to blast about on the bikes.  So with the snow finally gone (from the roads anyway) we hopped on the train to Corbridge yesterday and peddled back to Newcastle, and worked up a hunger for a pit stop at Bread Point for some meaty buns.





Cameras and Camber

Posted in snowboarding by Richard on January 10, 2010

Finally got to go snowboarding yesterday – first time since Austria last Feb, which is way too long.  I’ve been harping on about a trip up to Yad Moss to go and ride ever since the flakes started to fall.  I’d wanted to go during the week, when it would be quieter, but seeing as my friends have proper jobs unlike myself, it just wasn’t possible.  So in the early hours of the morning Danny, Lee and I set off for our first runs of the season.
