Here is the next installment that I put together while in South Africa with the What Now guys. It’s been AMAZING so far and I’m super excited for the rest of it.
We’ve had pretty much NO sleep … Good times!
Tour life is a good life but it is not a glamorous and we’ve been living in the van for a week now (driving on average of 10 hours a day) so the space is starting to feel smaller than it did at the start of the tour. We’ve seen some amazing scenery and I’ve been reminded how many beautiful parts of South Africa there are (forgetting about the really scrappy towns we’ve visited as well).
These 3 photographs are from my Instagram feed (@marcusmaschwitz) and are pretty much my view from the last week. How cramped is my work space?
Love being on the road again with such good people!
I had another photoshoot a few weeks ago with the super nice guys from Lost In The Riots and my friend, Brendan Monteiro, assisted me but also filmed a bunch of behind the scenes footage and put together a short video of it all.
I really like how it came out so thought I would share it. You can either watch it below or directly on YouTube.
You can also see a few more of the images from the shoot HERE.
Last year I worked with Colin Pollock on a few portraits as well as a few shots of him busy in studio. He’s super talented and I really enjoyed working with him. He’s playing a one-off show at Hoxton Hall that you should definitely check out.
This is the flyer with one of the shots I took in studio.
I went on tour with the boys from We Are The Ocean for a few days (London, Bristol and Stoke) to promote the release of their latest album and I photographed and video’d the tour as it went on. The guys are super nice and I love working with them so it was a great time together.
This video is just some of that footage.
The album is called GO NOW AND LIVE and track playing through this video is from the album and it is ‘Overtime Is A Crime’. Make sure to get a copy of it … it’s a cracker.
Some of the photos from the tour can be seen HERE.
Last year I worked with the guys from The Wild Archive while they were recording and working on their debut album which I love. The guys are really cool and they have just played their first show together which I sadly missed. They used 2 of the photos shot during their recording time to market the show. These are them.
We decided to continue enjoying the snow on thursday night after a good previous night and headed out with our snowboards and some lights and set up our own little session near Croydon after midnight and even ended up building a small jump which Jason hit a few times in the complete dark (thanks to me forgetting to charge the lights fully).
It was one of my funnest nights in a while thanks to Jason and Jude and some frozen powdered water.
It snowed quite a bit this week and the first night that it started my friend, Jude, and I went on a late night “fool-around” that started at 1am and saw us skateboarding (without trucks and wheels) down snow covered stairs, throwing snowballs at passing cars, covering each other in snow, attempting to make a snowman, rallying and then shooting photos of the Dodge parked in the snow. I shot the first one in this set at 3:41am with no lights, no tripods and on Iso 800 so although I was pushing the camera it really wasn’t by much. It was SO crazy how light everything was thanks to the pink sky. Never seen anything like it before.
I love the snow.
