£1 for 10 mins internet!!!
9:50 to go..
It' s been a while since I've updated..been a tad busy, so figure I'd update with everything thats been going on....how do i suddenly have the time.....well, i shall explain.
Since my last update, I've photographed an amazing wedding, my first Maxxis MXGB at Duns, a Burlesque night for the delightful Dixie's Dollhouse at "As You Like It" in jesmond (did i like it...oh yes i did), I've photographed numerous club events and practice days with some beauty results, sorted a new lovely shiny floor for my studio and found a van.....here, i explain, is how i have the time.
After months of looking, I finally found myself a little peach of a van, which unfortunately is in Newport, Wales. Now I have nothing against Newport in Wales except for its geographical location which is unfortunately...Frickin miles away!!! So, easy jet was booked to bristol, little train hop, pick up van...bomb back home..sweet. oh shouldn't type the word bomb, i'm in the airport.
Anyway, my lovely wife dragged us both up at 5am, this morning so that i would be ontime for my 7:30 flight to Bristol, which unfortunately has been delayed.. AN EASYJET FLIGHT DELAYED you say in suprise, they're usually cancelled. So now, i figured, I'd update my blog,... £1 for 10 mins internet..NIGHTMARE!
AGGHH Don't waste my seconds telling me theres 2 mins left..

Well...I finally got my first media pass...which came with a free green jacket with 'MEDIA' written on the back. (i felt so powerful haha).
Round 3 of the ACU Maxxis British MX kicked off earlier today with some great racing from all MX1, MX2 and support riders to make my first pro event a very good one indeed.
Current Champ and 'Local' boy (1.5 hr drive local) Brad Anderson #1 raced an absolute stormer in the 3rd race of the day riding on the very limit to crawl back after a bad start to finish 3rd behind Stephn Sword #71 , but even with a win in the first race could only manage 3rd over all behind Swordy and Bobryshev #777 finishing 1st.
Enjoy the pics :D

The weekend just gone saw Whiterose Motorcross Club back at Rowley. Unlike NEMXC a couple of weeks before, the track had dried out nicely with a few ruts and braking bumps keeping the riders on their toes.
No luck on the bike front from both Ash Harland (#292) and Barry Turnbull (#252)saw them dipping in and out of races for various reasons, with Ash admitting defeat and missing the last heat where Turnbull finally got it sorted winning by nearly 40 seconds.
Overall experts winner Michael Ogden riding #23 took the opportunity to close in on Harland in the overall championship.
#23 Michael Ogden
#14 Rich Stevenson
#131 Richie Collins
#252 Barry Turnbull
Check it out...mini race report and pics... you are truly spoiled!!!

WRMXC made the trip down to Doncaster Motor Park at Finningley. Top awards from the track stewards who had it in tip top condition, despite apparently needing 100 tonnes more sand which would make it rival Normandy beach...but still, excellent days racing.
Whiterose move to Rowley, Co Durham this weekend.

Well...have ordered a few little bits and bobs to upgrade my studio stuff YEY!!
Had an hour spare the other day so took my two little mini-me's down to the studio to pick some stuff up and thought, while we're here, might aswell take some pics.
So after Charlie had ran into the spotty and Had knocked over a can of coke, we snapped a few and left before any serious damage was done.

Well...a bit gutted as the aforementioned motorcross was abandoned due to poo weather... which however, may have turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
In the last 48 hours i've spent nearly 10 hours on the train, see Newcastle go 1 match closer to championship glory and to top it off had a 1-2-1 session with an awesome photographer and photographed an FHM high street honey..... can a man complain about that!!!!!!
A quick hop in the MOTO MAGAZINE van and quick thinking change of plan by Adam saw us back at his studio covering the wonders of lighting. My brain now hurts trying to understand the inverted square carry on and other delights, but I did manage to get some great pics, partly due to some good lighting instruction from Adam and the amazingly lovely poses of Katie Green, who, aswell as being a really really lovely woman all round, knows all about Nikon's (esp colour management haha).
Hope you enjoy the snaps from today, i did!!
MASSIVE CHEERS to Adam and Katie and of course Adam's wife for the wicked dinner of sarnies and amazing shortbread things.
