This blogpost will be filled with impressions of yesterdays studio session.
I was able to shoot atThe Stu, a place made for creatives to fulfill their ideas and visions. Since this was the first “professional” shoot I did it was a bit weird at first but with the help of the Stu people ( mostly Christoph, thank u a lot ) it was a good first shoot. And also to not be forgotten a big thank you to Marco , his brother Max and Nasty (for the kind support and Instagram stories).
Since I can’t really decide on how to start this post off right this time I’ll just skip the part where I talk about irrelevant things and stuff . ( 10/10 on actually writing blog posts and maintaining a blog)
All the following photos were taken on an (obviously) B&W film on my canon analog baby. And these pictures were also taken this summer were I used to spend a lot of time with these people and just chill and take pictures of them. And let me tell you that taking pictures of the people you just hang out with is great, there is no such thing as an awkward silence or an awkward atmosphere. ( These people really helped me out a lot with finishing my portfolio and at this point I just want to say thank you )
So wassup? I think it’s been a month since the last post, but I don’t even want to apologize. I obviously had some shit to do. For example writing this damn 20 page paper about psychotherapy and how it affects your brain. But since I’m done with it, the following image I recently found on tumblr describes my mood towards life now pretty much.
Like I already said I was shooting film this whole summer, and I even got two b&w films from my friend Davida (thank you) and did not miss the opportunity trying them (and I never say no when people tryna GIVE me film rolls bc shit is expensive as fuck).
This pretty boy is named Marco and is one of the cutest and kindest people I got to know. Really had fun shooting this beaut.
This was all I had to say. Thank you for reading and supporting.
Have a good evening.
No this is not a face tat, I just drew these tear drops on his face with a normal eyeliner pen.
He actually doesn’t even smoke but he did it for the pictures.
I don’t even know what happened here lol, I guess I fucked up the film.
Everyone that knows me well knows that I hate Munich and would rather live anywhere else than in this city and that, in fact, I grew up in the North West of Germany and never stop making this clear whenever I meet new people, because I’m still reppin’ and representin’North(R)West. So it’s a special kind of bound I have to this place. The “Block” I’m claiming to be from is Wuppertal, Elberfeld to be more precisely. That’s where I spent nearly my whole childhood and made the best experiences ( and then I moved to Munich lol).
A few weeks ago I decided to visit some friends there and spent some time and, of course, shoot. It’s been five years now since the last time I have visited my hometown so it’s really been bout damn time. It really was great coming back. 10/10 would do it again.
For me it was important to catch the vibe while chilling with cool people and having a good time. Most of the time this is what it’s all about, no further meaning or “message”. Not everything needs explanation. Just do what you want. Or what you feel like.
In case Lil Fuego didn’t tell you privately, contrary to her promise of always keeping you up to date when she begged you to subscribe to her then (before the advent of Big Gelato) miserable blog, I’m gonna take over this blog for a week which will probably extend it’s life for another six months and make it resistant to all the lil fuego posts to come. My goal is to make about 3-4 posts. One about music, one about deep shit, one probably about some less deep shit and one about Qatar cause I be’s there now.
So I’m listening to Quasimoto and sitting in Qatar right now and wondering what I tell you youngens about today. Hm….. I just graduated high school (unofficially but fuck my prom/graduation ceremony (they had to put the two together cause they broke (which then again is because they suck at life))) and as you may or may not expect I’m all like FUCK EVERYBODY, NO MORE HOMEWORK ALTHOUGH I NEVER DONE IT ANYWAYS, I’M FREE, LIFE BEGINS NOOOOW. On the other hand though the way you conduct your social life might totally change for people whose social life was widely based on classmates and school in general. Now for me personally whenever I compile one of my dope ass outfits in the morning I won’t be thinking about how I will school these motherf***ers today (double entendre) or how I will impress my ex in math classes (of course not with my miserable math skills) and guess what, I kind of miss that. Like shit, this is some tradition you know ? Back in first grade when you got (or didn’t) them flashing shoes, made you feel like you had a cop car on your feet (cause that’s what cops are, under your feetACAB) like them original lil ones not the new ones for teenagers cause those are just embarrassing, and you’d be like “Imma walk in that class and show ALL of these guys whose got the most apple juice”. But for real for real ? This is all just something that comes down to the way you conduct your personal life and self essentially. So if you just reach the consciousness of self respect and not doing everything for the omnious “others” then the end of school is just a wonderful chance for you to FINALLY start designing the life you want to have for the next chapter “FULL TIME DRUG DEALING IS ON MA MAN”. You can decide wether or not you want to throw yourself into another commitment like university right away or if you wanna go travel the world, start a blog and become better than Lil Fuego (easy) or me (impossible), kickstart some new hobbies or interests, maybe even start making some serious mullah.
As a final word I wanna get serious and say that most of the stuff you want to do and people wanna give you hassle about, most of that stuff is fairly possible and achievable. Even traveling the world without having rich parents. Research it. The most important thing for you to do if you are taking a year off after skool is GET ORGANIZED. Watch seminars on how to get organized, how to manage money, write down your goals and dreams and learn to manage your time, remember education is not academic education but self education. Gettin an A+ don’t make you educated, it makes you hard working but not educated. If you want success in life or if you are trying to achieve something unusual e.g. your twisted dreams you must be willing to risk shit and go against everyone, get hurt, cry and bleed. So this was the first of a few Big Gelato posts, stay posted and enjoy.
