I shot some portraits last week of a gaming crew called F3AR Ad3PT who play Call Of Duty. It’s quite an obvious approach but I figured it’d be fun to light them from underneath as if lit by laptop / tablet etc. It’s also the way comic book villains are lit which makes it kind of relevant if you consider these guys are killing people for fun.
A few months back I got to shoot with PnKi and DaBruin from fuck-knows-what-to-call-it-genre-of-music outfit BFAKE for the Red Bulletin Magazine. The guys are also involved a Cape Flats skateboard movement /brand called 20sk8. I got to hang out with the guys whilst in the process of recording their new album which they’ve just released in Holland. They sent me through the video. Give it a listen.. it’s unlike anything you know and it’s catchy. Some of the tracks I got a sneak peak to were really dope and I look forward to hearing them fully mastered. Anyway’s check them out and watch them live. Just don’t take it seriously, or do, be yourself I guess. I’m lost and rambling again. arrrgh… here are some photos:
Following on from my last post here is a Pantsula outfit from Soweto called The Perfect Storm. I’ve just got to say I’m a huge fan of Pantsula. The outfits, the moves and general attitude I’ve experienced each time has made it a firm favourite culture for me. You can follow them on Facebook
Red Bull Beat Battle took place on 31 May 2014 at Walter Sisulu Hall in Soweto. (For a full report on the event click here)
