My ideas for shoots aren’t just ideas I have came up with, I guess you can say it’s my mind translated into photos. What was the best bit of this shoot? Meeting the team, going wild in the studio and being creative in post processing. How did you get into photography? I get asked this question a lot. I don’t see it as something I ‘got into’, I see it more as something I’ve always been a part of, something I’ve always had a passion for and something I hope to do until the day I die. If you could work with any photographer or model, who would it be? One of my favourite models is Coco Rocha, she moves perfectly. I enjoy being in a room surrounded by creative and interesting people so getting the meet the people I have is a blessing on it’s own. What are your plans for the future? I’d like to be a photographer, pretty please. You can see more of Damon’s work on his website - www.damonbaker.co.uk17 nulput in euipsum modoloreet lore con velenim vendion ulputpatet alit 18

  16. 16. JAK SPEDDING I decided to take the idea of rebellion back to its simplest form. The human form and the apparent ‘rebellion’ when people do not conform to the idea’s of modern society; I decided to use a female model rebelling against so- ciety by bearing all for the camera but took the edge of it by placing her in a place where society has no say over what is right or wrong, nature. The antlers from a deer are to show the idea that nature is encasing her rebellion and inside that ‘capsule’ the idea of being naked is a totally normal thing. I shoot most of my work on digital for convenience but I crave the look of film so I shoot all my work using old film lenses which I have adapted usually with a big hammer to fit on the front of my camera. This is an extremely pleasing way to shoot as a lot of the lenses don’t have the modern coatings and the feel you get off them is amazing! It stops you thinking about how sharp a picture should be and what a picture truly means to you!31 Velessis nulputeuipsum modoloreet lore con velenim vendion ulputpatet alit 32 nulput in in euipsum modoloreet lore con velenim vendion ulputpatet alit 32

  19. 19. Combining the concepts of Disposable Perspec- tives and the creative and production talents of YEAH, “WE ARE DISPOSBALE YEAH” is a pho- tography project designed to promote analogue film photography, concluding in a unique and ex- clusive book. Run as a competition, entrants were asked to enter up to five images, with only one condition; that the images must have been taken using film photography. Aside from that, the brief was completely open, we just had to sit back and watch the entries roll in. We received huge numbers of entries from all over the world with a whole range of brilliant, weird james Hope Flakner and wonderful imagery. Then came the hard bit - Choosing with final images for the book! Sadly we couldn’t fit everyone’s work in, so we were forced to choose 50 images for the book, and a further 5 winners, including an overall win- ner who would win the Diana Mini. It was one of the hardest things we’ve had to do, with so many amazing images to choose from it took us a long time. The book will be released in mid December, and will be available for pre-order very soon. www.wearedisposableyeah.com jovan Todorovic37 38

  23. 23. JAMES HEAD Skateboarding has always had a DIY mentality from it’s genesis in the seventies. This has ranged from people customizing their grip tape, pressing their own tee shirts and creating skate parks. In Aldershot, Farn- ham and Fleet there have been spots grow- ing in the concrete jungles (for those of us that are trained enough to spot them). The main force behind this increase growth is Laup Barter. Here is the story of a skate park that was once in Aldershot called “Laup- side”, this account is written by the laup himself. “The laupside site had a mini ramp on it some 18+ years ago so we knew there was concrete under all the grass, beer bottles, cans and rubbish. My friend French and I cleared the first little bit back in August 09 and built a quarter pipe. At the time we didn’t know that the council were planning the much needed re-build of Aldershot’s park, we figured if no one else is going to build anywhere to skate then we thought we’d build it ourselves. From then on the momen- tum grew and by the time of its heavy hand- ed destruction, little over a year later, there was a regular crew of people riding there most days and building most weekends. A big thank you to Mike Vincent, Rob Hill and Ian Munns who put as much time and effort into the place as anyone.”45 Pat.
