New Project…

Hello All…

With apologies to LJ readers who syndicate this blog as well and are therefore approaching being spammed 😉 …

I am starting a new photographic project and I am looking for willing volunteers…

I know, you are immediately assuming that I want you to take your clothes off, but I beg to differ – this “work” requires y’all to keep ’em on!

Now it wouldn’t be me if there wasn’t a catch, so here goes…

I’m looking for couples (real or fake I don’t care, but if you are going to rope a “mate” into this, keep reading before you do), gay or straight, young or old, big / medium / small, white/black/brown or even green… These couples need to be comfortable with the following three requirements:

1. You need to be ok with kissing in public, and when I say kissing I mean snogging / tonsil-hockey / pashing

2. You need to be ok with putting your hands in places on your partner’s body (and vice versa) that __might__ raise some eyebrows, but without showing ANYTHING.

3. You need to be ok with the idea that these images may well end up in a book, or on a wall in a public place and they will DEFINITELY end up on the Internet, but only on my site – they will NEVER be sold / syndicated to any other internet sites. They WILL NOT appear on Facebook; in fact you will have to agree to not post them on Facebook or in fact anywhere on the Net (except online modeling site(s) if you are a model and wish to self-promote with them).

I am not offering any money for this assignment, but I am more than happy to supply one or two images per couple as keepsakes / portfolio material etc…

If this sounds like something that you might enjoy doing and you have a lover / occasional partner / friend who you could do it with then please get in touch.

If you like the idea, but it’s not for you, then please rack your brains for people you know that would be “up for it” who will not have seen this post – it is posted as public in order to facilitate the “pass it on” thing…

..::EDIT::.. For the record I am more than prepared to travel (internationally if necessary) to get this done with people who are cool, diverse and into the idea, so don’t think I won’t come to you if you are in [insert country outside the UK here], ok?

Thanks for reading, I hope to hear from some of you…

I’ve already blogged / tweeted about Casting Red…

…which is a musical partnership between a friend of mine, Tess, and someone that I don’t know (at least to my knowledge) who is known as JS Tolar on Alone Tone. Their band is Casting Red

Check out their latest work:

Watch this space, there should be an album from them later this year…


What it feels like to be abroad on today of all days…

Well, at the moment I am not in the UK, and for the first time in my memory I am completely torn about the fact that I am not __in__ my country in the aftermath of this General Election; often in the past I would rather have been out of the country in these circumstances. In 1997 I was unhappy, in 2002 I was still unhappy and even in 2005 I was deeply unhappy; now I am completely depressed. Ever since I have paid attention to party politics in the UK I have believed staunchly in two things; that I am a Liberal and that the electoral system in the UK is simply unfair. As I write this my party of choice is currently confirmed to have received 22.9% of the popular vote which would equate to 148 seats rounded down in the current count of 650 seats in the Commons. How is that fair? Nearly one quarter of my fellow Britons agree with me, that the Liberal Democrats represent our feelings about economic, social, domestic and international policy and yet less that one tenth of the UK population will be represented by a Liberal politician.

This is not fair, and while I realise that I run the risk of sounding like a four year old who has been denied an ice cream, I nonetheless want to say that it is not willful or unreasonable to want my democracy to __actually__ represent me and my beliefs and politics.
