A selection from the full set can be found here – www.bangphoto.co.uk/triptychs.
Currently in the process of setting up a place for the whole (current) set to reside.

The Yorkshireman.
A man long overdue for the series. Ricky is the true story of cycling evolution. Starting young on the BMX he made a name for himself, got sponsers, travelled europe and a custom named frame. He has now become pretty much an all out roadie thanks to first a spell riding fixed gear. However this is only part of his recent story, the most inspiring part is his frame building business. A one man start up, custom building steel bike frames (pretty much in his shed) he’s since gone on to win numerous awards, best in shows, public choice awards, selected to build bikes for pro riders along with features in GQ magazine amongst others. This is just the tip of his list of honours, the main thing to take away however is his dedication to his craft. The acclaim helps build the publics awareness of his business but to Ricky the joy of turning a customers dream bike into a reality is all the reward he seems to need.

Here are a few links to check out the man and the business –

Sorry old blog of mine it seems i’ve been neglecting you a little of late. Lots has been happening, plenty of new material shot, a good few irons in the fire coming up plus I’m starting to form a plan of where the second 50 Triptychs are going to take the project (once I get to 50 that is).
So for now you’re just going to have to make do with lots of beard as I splurge a little from this one. Currently formulation an editorial piece from it so enjoy.

The in betweens

A quick post just to confirm I’m still here. Busy with submissions, shoots, concept building and portfolio updates so just figured I’d post a few in betweens for you to stay in the loop.

Fashion portraits made in the in betweens, that moment just after one lie ends and another begins.

Away from the hustle of the studio, just the simplicity of my subject and myself.

ATQM (All The Queens Men) – Promo film from the Summer Campaign shoot.

Just thought I’d throw this one into the blog. Shot by the rather talented Mathew & Dominic during last weeks S/S campaign shoot for ATQM.

 

Enjoy.

I’ll simply add a quick run down of the components of us creating the appearance of beautiful golden late summer evening light when actually shooting in the middle of the day in Early March;

4 models
3 locations
1 make up artist
14 hour day
Freezing conditions (like actually below freezing)
Summer campaign
video crew
Car convoy around Liverpool
The worlds smallest florist shop
The worlds most awesome beaten up camper van
Over use of the phrase “think warm”
Being happy because somehow we picked our shoot day in between two days of blizzards.

So a good day all in all.
