Young Blood, Old Shot

posted by on 28/03/2014

Film is dead. Long Live Film. Between the accessibility of the the digital camera and ubiquitous nature of the camera phone, its no wonder that the world of analogue photography is being dwarfed in mainstream. Despite the slow but reassuring resurgence over the past few years, the analogue club is still pretty inaccessible for the uninitiated. Luckily for those with an interest in the craft, two London-based photography collectives are celebrating the young mavericks who are keeping the art form alive…

NFL London | New Era

posted by on 02/10/2013

I’ve pretty much been through every major American sport growing up. From regularly following the MLB and NHL (including watching the London Knights ice hockey team every weekend), to playing and coaching basketball and being an NBA fanatic. Of course, I’m also a big NFL fan, and after getting more involved in American football a few years back with my brother playing wide receiver for a local team, I just had to make sure I saw one of the games they play this side of the pond. Thanks to New Era, I got the chance to experience the 7th London game in style, between the Minnesota Vikings and the Pittsburgh Steelers. And what a game it was. More after the cut.

Now what was the meaning of all this I hear you ask, well check out the full post for more details.

O2 Launch 4G

posted by on 02/09/2013

As you probably may have heard by now, O2 have launched their super-fast (no word of lie, this thing flies) 4G network coverage. To celebrate the launch, O2 held the #O24G launch gig at the Shepherds Bush Empire and we were luckily enough to get invited along. Plan B headlined, with the brilliant Faith SFX supporting. To put the networks 4G through its paces, we used Samsung Galaxy S4′s to live blog, vlog and all the rest right from our seats. Plan B and his fans seemed pretty excited about the whole thing, as people snapped away and told their followers about what was a fantastic evening. I took some photos myself, so check out more after the jump.
