Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

World Cup Legends by Geo Law

posted by on 09/07/2014

The World Cup is almost over, but I’m still enjoying seeing content around the biggest sporting event in the world and will honestly miss it all when it’s over. The way people (and brands) get involved in the World Cup with things off the pitch continues to evolve and that’s exciting. A colourful display of artwork was shared on to my Twitter feed recently and I just had to share it. Sheffield-based illustrator Geo Law is an avid football fan, and demonstrated his love for legends of the World Cup through his latest pieces of work. Fantastic illustrated portraits of some of the greatest players ever such as Pele, Diego Maradonna and Bobby Charlton. Read on to see more.

Creative Class by WeTransfer

posted by on 03/07/2014

Interviews are a million times more interesting when they are visually appealing and away from the typical questions/discussions we see far too often. A well filmed interview about a relevant topic goes a long way in being an enjoyable piece of content to watch. WeTransfer (yes, the file sharing platform, that is also now on the App Store!) knows what it is mainly used for – people sharing things of the creative form such as photos, videos and other large scale formats. It now labels itself as more than a file transfer service, but also as a global exhibition of creative talent and a platform for creative exploration. With Creative Class, WeTransfer picks a selection of influential people within the creative industry to interview and presents it in a glorious way. Read on to see more.

A Space View of the World Cup

posted by on 26/06/2014

The World Cup is far, far more than a football tournament. It’s a time when all eyes are on 32 countries from across the planet, observing their athletes and their fans, as we find ourselves paying attention to and discussing countries that we never normally would (asides from the general FIFA corruption and ‘problems in football’ chat). Not sure about you, but I find myself discussing things away from the football. The culture of these countries, the population, what I think their people are like, what the country and land is like and where the youngsters play. A fan of photography, and still holding on to a mild obsession I once had with geography and differences in landscapes and terrains, I was very satisfied when I stumbled across these incredible images of all 32 counties in this years World Cup taken from space. Have a look at some below.

Pepsi World Cup | Directed by Idris Elba

posted by on 18/06/2014

We’re all in that World Cup fever mode now, and despite how much we think they annoy us, we all love the football ads. Pepsi is running a music campaign for the World Cup called ‘Beats of the Beautiful Game’, and in their latest installment, UK icon and man of many talents Idris Elba has directed this rather quirky short movie to the tune of DJ R3hab – Unstoppable. It’s a usual jocks and nerds tale, where the nerd gets another nerd and has an unexpected talent, but I am impressed with the way it’s shot despite the awfully cringy dialogue. What do we think? Watch it after the jump.

Present it a concept that displays the design of the mix, if you are sharing your playlist digitally. 5 Revise the playlist (optional). It is possible to slowly create a mixture Disc. It’s also a good software to really get your brain about in case you opt to blend on the fly. Stop the mixture over a substantial note, with one a melody that you consider will genuinely stay with the audience. Obviously, you’ll find generally exceptions, for example tunes which can be designed to be enjoyed together (for example “The Hellion” and “Electric Eye” by Judas Priest, “Depths” and “Surfacing” by Chapel Team “We’ll Rock You” and “We’re the Winners” by Queen, or “Brain Injury” and Eclipse” by Pink Floyd) and two tunes which have special meaning to your intended audience when performed together.

In the Pit | London Grammar, O2 Academy Brixton

posted by on 11/06/2014

Enjoying taking photos is one thing, but it’s taken to a whole other level when you’re put in positions that only photographers have access to. Being in an environment like that feels completely different to just strolling around taking photos. I had shot at the Brixton Academy a while back and thoroughly enjoyed my first experience of gig photography. Thanks to the lovely folk at the O2 Academies we had the opportunity to experience this feeling again with access to the press pit for London Grammar‘s latest gig in Brixton, shadowing their in-house photographer to get a true feeling of how it all goes down. I ended up getting some pretty nice snaps of the trio from Nottingham and managed to have a chat with the photographer. Read on for more.

Through the Lens | A View of London

posted by on 05/06/2014

We love our city. Yes, we all need escapes sometimes, but London is where we dream and chase those dreams. I’m taking my Through the Lens feature to the blog for a second to share some snaps of my favourite place on Earth – London. Google City Experts and BT invited us to an exclusive trip to the iconic BT Tower to learn some more history of the city, the tower and get some photos from the viewing gallery at the very top. It really was something special to see London from this high up, and watch how the city landscape changes it’s character from daylight to night time. Have a look at some photos below.

North Korea Through Google Glass

posted by on 21/05/2014

Unknown to many, North Korea is a mystery to this planet. Published on CNN recently, we got the chance to see North Korea through the lens of Google Glass thanks to reporter Kenny Zhu. The photos give a more personal look in to the mysterious country through a first person view. Zhu was told that so long as the photos “reflect the positive side of North Korea” he was fine to take photos with the wearable tech and upload (although there is no internet access for temporary visitors to the country). The pictures are fascinating. It’s clear how military minded the country is from the war statues and the political photos and messages displayed everywhere, to the uniform clothing people wear. It’s also brilliant to see wearable tech being used like this – a discreet camera that is far from obvious within Google Glass. Take a look at some photos after the cut.

Clarks – A Shoe for the Summer

posted by on 07/05/2014

Summer’s nearly here, and if you’re anything like me you’ll be happy about that until it arrives and then look forward to Autumn. However you’d also be thinking about what you’ll be wearing on your feet when the sunny weather arrives. While we know footwear is footwear, we also know the right pair is needed for the right occasion and style. After being mighty impressed with the diversity of their mens Spring/Summer ’14 collection, the lovely people at Clarks agreed to let the Y&Y gents take a pair each for a spin on a glorious day in the even more glorious Richmond Park. Six dudes, six pairs of shoes, six different ways to achieve effortless style in the Summer. Read on to see them all.

Where Children Sleep by James Mollison

posted by on 29/04/2014

I wonder how many of us considered how lucky we were growing up to have that cosy bedroom with the Jurassic Park bed sheets, a book shelf full of Biff and Chip classics and a box of toys that had about as much meaning and relevance to our lives as the decisions made by those sitting in the seats of Parliament. Nothing mattered except our happiness and development. And that was because things were made easy for us. James Mollison is a heavily-awarded, Kenyan-born, England-raised, Venice-based photographer who has a passion for showing cultural diversity through his work. In 2011, he released a book called Where Children Sleep showcasing the material and cultural differences of children around the world, focusing on class, poverty and the diversity of the children. A portrait of a child is paired with a photo of his/her bedroom. This will open your eyes. Read on.
