P.S. I’m not taking a rip on oli sykes or bring me the horizon I love his band and their music and they are awesome individuals, it’s just a running joke we had going with the singer josh and the rest of the band for the day…
I love abandoned houses like ridiculously love them to an extent no person should their character is awesome there is a sense of mystery and always a story as to how the place got that way and plus if we break something being absolute idiots getting the shot we want or getting black paint all over the shop because the guys don’t understand the fact I want it on them doesn’t really matter (keep your eyes peeled for the shots to come) and that to me makes for an awesome shoot…
The Ailment are an awesome band from the sunshine coast, I got the time to hang out with them and shoot their promo’s past Sunday and this is what I’ve come up with so far got a tonne more to edit two more locations slash themes figured I’d edit in the order I’ve taken the shots just to be easy, got a mad t-shirt tan slash camera tan from this location so hot sliced my legs up real bad too but it was fun, all the guys are really awesome dudes really genuine people and their music absolutely shreds, I’ll be working with them again soon on their forthcoming EP out later this year, you can go check them out here I strongly recommend you listen to their stuff (www.myspace.com/theailmentband) or stalk them at their shows…

...and sometimes you go get a haircut right after taking a symbolic photo.
Happyhappyjoyjoy. I forgot how much they hurt the day after.
my tattoo!! gemini sign
It's the zodiac signs Gemini (my sign) and Taurus (Lee's sign) intertwined.
better in black as always, click to view :x
I couldn't resist--even if it was Flash! I swore I would never get flash. But! it was simple and nice not to mention 20% off!
Gemini's dog, Star. Those tattoos on his arm he did himself. He had another on his shoulder of a flame which looked even more awesome than this, but I didn't get a photo of it. I know I should have, but I was pressed for time.
