Hello all.

I don't really come on dA anymore. Just to let you know you can follow my latest work on my facebook account.
Gordon Mcbryde Photography
I only put up finished pieces, normally client work etc.

Anyway... How are you? Gosh, look at my 16 year old face up there. Crazy.

PS, I survived the London riots. Although I had to abandon my house for a few days.

All my love,

Gordon

Hiatus + New Song

Journal Entry: Sat Jan 22, 2011, 1:59 PM
Hello everyone.

I haven't posted anything on this site for a long time now. I am sorry.

At University I really don't have a lot of inspiration. To be fair, it doesn't help that Southampton was bombed in the war and as a result they rebuilt everything out of concrete.

I am working on some exciting projects with Ben Cooper (Radical Face / Electric President >> www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8a4ii… <<) and I promise you will be able to see the finished result in a music shop near you... soon!

I have some photoshoots lined up with some famous DJ's, and I am making a well known British Dub step producer (Joker)'s album cover.

Not to mention a photoshoot lined up with Addict Clothing soon.

All very exciting.

I am also trying to get an internship and a creative post production studio somewhere, probably in London. If you know anything about this area please tell me more!

I really am sorry I don't have any new photos to show you yet. I suppose I could just work on some from my archive, but time has snuck up on me and they are all from 2008 really.

As for my music, I have a new track out today! I wrote it and finished it all in one day, so that is something at least. See what you think. It's a bit of an epic film advert of a song I suppose >> soundcloud.com/tepetl/were-goi… <<

Hope you are all well!

Help me make a famous CD cover!

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 8, 2010, 7:15 AM
Hey everyone! How are you all?

Let me cut to the chase. I am in the process of drawing up ideas for a CD cover, for my friend Ben Cooper. He is the brainchild behind musical projects such as Electric President >> www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWz00t… << and Radical Face >> www.youtube.com/watch?v=P8a4ii… <<

He has a very specific idea, and I wanted to see if anyone wants to help me. Essentially I need to get some good stock images (or take them yourselves if you can!) of children in Victorian style clothing.
Here are some of our ideas:

1. A boy outdoors, standing in a puddle near his house, or out on the street, but the water's up to his knees or higher, as though he's sinking.
2. A girl crocheting, but her chair is hover off the ground.
3. A person facing toward the camera, with his/her back to a mirror. But the reflection in the mirror is also facing the camera.
4. A young boy, perhaps in a wheel chair, with a party hat on. In his hands he holds a set of strings, but instead of being tied to balloons, they're tied to crows.
5. A family photo where all look normal but one child, who has an animal head instead (a deer would be nice).
6. Something involving moths. I'm not sure what. I just think moths look neat.

If anyone could help me find images of children in Victorian clothing, or can take some yourselves, you would help in making the art for what will be a very big album.

So please, if anyone has children/cousins, could you help me out? I would really appreciate it!

PS, my album is out on iTunes if you want to check it out, with the album artwork >> itunes.apple.com/gb/album/pini… <<

Hello all,

Just a quick message to apologise for the lack of any new material. I am not creative whilst at University (very grey city...)

Furthermore, my laptop is broken. May have lost many-a-photo :'(

Please bear with me, more to come at some point.

Until then, I have a little record finished and I would be honored if you would download it! :3

Link is here but it's hard to see on my journal css: >>> www.sendspace.com/file/fxk3rt <<<

I am making songs under the name Tepetl (for no real reason), and I hope some of you more old fashioned photographers recognize the album name :meow:

Hope all is well with everyone.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a Gute Nacht.

Photo Game 2 Entries!!

Journal Entry: Mon Oct 18, 2010, 6:20 AM
Hello everyone! The Entries are in for Photo game two. Lots of wonderful stuff!

First of all! I cannot express how awesome it is for those of you who showed interest and even more so for those who went out and took their pictures.

Me and :iconimustbedead: will now take a couple of days to decide who we feel will win. On the same announcement of the winner of Photo Game 2, we will be putting up the new rules for Photo Game 3. Hopefully you enjoyed this round, and will want to do it again, as well as tell your friends!

Again it is very neat for us to see people taking part and it is truly amazing! Me and imustbedead wanted to do something different and interesting to people, instead of the usual contest. We wanted it to be easy and for all levels of expertise to take place. I think this first public round shows that we may be onto something. I hope down the line in later photo games we will have tons of entries!

We are looking for more prizes also for the prize pool so please note me if you can add anything at all.

Ok! Here are the photos, I put Mine and imustbedead first. The rest of the entries are up for the competition, please look at them all and tell us or them how you think!

In case you forgot! Here were the rules for Round 2

1. The time 5:07 must be displayed somewhere in the photo.
2. There must be a table in the photo.
3. There must be three different color socks in the photo.
4. There must be a mirror in the photo.
5. It must be a girl model.
6. The girl must be upside down.
7. Must have a musical instrument in it.
9. The girl must be wearing two different silk scarfs.
10. She must be wearing red shoes.
11. The photo must be in Square format.

Thanks Everybody! Stay tuned for new rules and the winner announcement in just a couple days!

  • Mood: Zest
Recently :iconimustbedead: and I did a project where we came up with some rules, and then both of us went out and took a photograph using those rules.

The rules were as follows.

1. Must use your own girlfriend.
2. She must have a yellow shirt on.
3. She must have blue bottoms on.
4. Her feet must be in water.
5. She has to hold an electronic device.
6. She must wear a vintage hat.
7. Square format.


And these were the results.

Synthetic by P0RG Print Fish by IMustBeDead



We have decided to do a contest where we come up with a new set of rules. And not only are we going to go take pictures following the rules ourselves, but we are going to give a one year subscription to whomever out there goes and takes the best photo following the rules as well. :iconimustbedead: and I will judge together as to which one we feel is the winner, and we will announce and award that person in one months time.

OK HERE ARE THE NEW RULES!


1. The time 5:07 must be displayed somewhere in the photo.
2. There must be a table in the photo.
3. There must be three different color socks in the photo.
4. There must be a mirror in the photo.
5. It must be a girl model.
6. The girl must be upside down.
7. Must have a musical instrument in it.
9. The girl must be wearing two different silk scarfs.
10. She must be wearing red shoes.
11. The photo must be in Square format.

It is preferred if you find all these objects and take a real photo of them, but if you cannot find one for some reason then we are fine with some of it being composite.


A couple of other details. All submissions must be sent to me in a note before October 15th, 2010. Feel free to post this on your journal to get as many people to partake!

We will then take a couple days to judge and announce the winner.

Again the winner gets a ONE YEAR SUBSCRIPTION. Now go take your photos! Even if you suck at taking photos!

CONTEST! 1 year subscription prize!

Competition Vote Now!

Journal Entry: Sat Sep 11, 2010, 3:33 AM
My competition is now closed!
I have chosen 7 of the best, and my own retouch (I said I would).

Now the fun part! You get to vote which one you think is the best as they are anonymous! You have no idea whose is whose!

Simply vote on the poll (left to right numerically) which one you like the most.
>>> p0rg.deviantart.com/journal/po… <<<

You cannot vote for yourself. You don't HAVE to vote, but if you do - do not vote for yourself.

Good luck!

Hurry! I am going away on holiday for a week on the 3rd of September, and I have been MADE to not take my laptop!

COMPETITION:

I am going to be holding a competition!

I want to see your best retouching skills.

Here is the image (it's my girlfriend :iconmorkandme:):

Competition Image by P0RG

Don't go too crazy, I will ignore silly things. I am into heavy editing, as long as it looks real. No fantasy or sci-fi crazy things.
I want a retouch with sensibility, the kind you would see in high quality advertising. Feel free to resize or crop. I don't want images a million pixels squares.

Bear in mind, I like serious editing. Not just an action you found. One hour minimum as a guide.

I am entering myself. We can all compare yours to mine!

SEND IT TO ME IN A NOTE! NOT IN A COMMENT. I DON'T READ MANY ANYMORE.

The winner will win a subscription as well as a feature!!!

:meow:

Hope you are all well, and don't forget to check out the new site at >> www.gmcbryde.com <<

Petition to stop killing 23,000 dolphins per year

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 20, 2010, 4:12 PM
About this Petition:

In the feature documentary "The Cove," a team of activists and filmmakers infiltrate a heavily-guarded cove in Taiji, Japan. In this remote village they witness and document activities deliberately being hidden from the public: More than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises are being slaughtered each year and their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is being sold as food in Japan, often times labeled as whale meat.

The majority of the world is not aware this is happening. The Taiji cove is blocked off from the public. Cameras are not allowed inside and the media does not cover the story. It's critical that we get the word out in Japan. Once the Japanese people know we believe they will demand change.


The Desired Outcome of this Petition:


We urge President Obama, Vice President Biden and Japanese Ambassador to the United States Ichiro Fujisaki to address this issue and urge the government of Japan to stop the slaughtering of dolphins in Taiji, Japan.
