Oxford twilight vintage bus rides

Friday, April 5th, 2019

I’ve been looking for the right light conditions to test out some Lomography 800 colour film that I recently bought and after a friend tipped me off about the twilight vintage bus rides I knew that was it. A couple of years ago I photographed them on Fujichrome 64T tungsten balanced slide film but because the film speed was so slow I had to use a tripod the whole time. On this occasion I wanted the freedom to move around handheld so I went along with fast film and a fast lens.

[Tech info:] Nikon F100, 50/1.2 lens, Lomography 800 film, developed and scanned by FilmDev. Noritsu scans.

Public Enemy at Common People 2016, Oxford

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

When I heard that Public Enemy would be performing at the Common People 2016 music festival in Oxford I was really looking forward to photographing them but when Chuck D came on stage he announced that Flava Flav couldn’t make it due to problems with obtaining a visa in time which was very disappointing and quite limiting in terms of photography as I find him the more photogenic of the duo.

[Tech info:] Nikon F100, 70-200/2.8 VR, Ilford HP5 @ ISO 800, HC110 1+31, Pakon scans.

Ken Fox Troupe – Wall of Death

Monday, August 29th, 2016

During my visit to The Great Dorset Steam Fair I got to experience the Wall of Death for the very first time. This wasn’t any old Wall of Death, it was the Ken Fox Troupe Wall of Death and what made it extra special was seeing it with my old friend Benedict Campbell who made an excellent short film about themĀ (see it here). The show is nothing short of spectacular and I highly recommend it if you get the chance to see it.

[Tech info:] Leica M2, Voigtlander 50/1.5 Nokton Classic, Ilford HP5 @ ISO 800, developed in HC110 1+31. Pakon scans.
