Fashion photographer Damon Baker hails from a small town in Worcestershire in England and like many people from small towns the 25-year-old photographer is making a big mark in his chosen creative field of fashion photography.

The three things that hit you instantly about Baker’s photography or at least hit me instantly are the naturalness he seems to bring out of his subjects, the retro feel and the sense that there is a narrative to the photographs. It’s all very well taking pictures that look visually brilliant which Baker does but if there’s no sense of story that drags you into the photograph well there’s not much point, is there? And Baker in his work certainly doesn’t overlook this aspect. Possibly it’s the writer in me that loves a sense of narrative in everything.

Vicky Pattison Is The New Queen Of The Jungle!

Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison has been crowned the 2015 Queen of the jungle on I’m A Celebrity tonight. The 28-year-old reality TV star bet Union J singer George Shelley into second place with The Only Way Is Essex’s Ferne McCann finishing in third place.

After Ant & Dec announced the result of her win, an excited Vicky was presented with her crown and staff by last year’s king of the jungle Carl “Foggy” Fogarty.

She said of her win,

“I can’t thank everyone who voted for us enough. I don’t even think I deserve it! Thank you so much. I love you all. And I’m probably going to have to pay for my mam and all my mates’ phone bills when this is over!”

The Newcastle lass became the second late arrival after Christopher Biggins’ win in 2007 and had an emotional reunion with her mum Caroll on the bridge.

Congratulations to Vicky and well done to George and Ferne too. 🙂

My Opinion On The I’m A Celeb Final Five!

i-m-a-celebrity-logo-945762134Well it has been another interesting series of I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here and we have once again reached the latter stages of the competition. I’m sad Lady C isn’t there but obviously there was medical reasons so I’m glad she did what was best for her health but I loved her in it. Both Lady C and Kieron have been my favourites in the series.

Here is my opinion on our final five my dears:

Kieron Dyer

kieron-dyer-main

Kieron seems really nice and is my winner. I find him quite introverted and I can relate to that. I admire him for doing it because I’d imagine it isn’t easy going in among all the big personalities and he is from a sporting background so the whole showbiz thing would be quite new. I also loved the friendship he had with Lady C and Chris Eubank who I also would have liked to have seen in the last five. He’s also been up for the challenges too and I love his sense of humour.

chris-kieron-lady-c

Ferne McCann

My second favourite of the last five is Ferne. She seems really natural and nice and that challenge with the snakes in the pit was pretty something. If that snake was around my neck I would probably so much that the snake would kill me. Although the sight of the pit may be enough to do that to be fair. So yeah, a huge challenge that could possibly be a huge turning point in Ferne possibly winning it. Well I have a bet on her at 33/1 so I’m hoping it is anyway. Her friendships with Vicky and George have also been lovely.

George Shelley

I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!

I have a soft spot for George because I’m a Union J fan and he hasn’t disappointed me in the jungle. He seems really nice and his penchant for hugs always makes me smile. Shows a warmness and a gentleness which are great qualities. I love his friendship with Ferne and he’s always up for every challenge he’s set. I don’t know if George has been in the show as much as some of the others however. There has been times he has faded into the background but he is coming across very well.

 

Vicky Pattison

1447757311_im_a_celeb_late_entry_14gp

I like Vicky and she is always up for the challenges. She seems really nice and I love her friendship with Ferne too. I love some of the comments she made too because she comes across as a feminist which is always a good thing.

 

Jorgie Porter

1447166443_im_a_celebrity_29s

Jorgie seems really nice. She is always up for the challenges even if the last one was a bit of a disaster. Still the eating challenge with Lady C was brilliant and both Jorgie and Susannah did bravely jump out of the plane at the beginning.

 

 

Union J Speak About New Album Revealing that It Is Going To Be More Acoustic!

Union J Are Set To Have A More Mature Country/Folk Sound For Their New Album!

Union J Are Set To Have A More Mature Country/Folk Sound For Their New Album!

Union J’s second album will be more acoustic than their first album, band member George Shelley has revealed.

 

We’ve been working on some new stuff and we’re really enjoying it, it’s very different. It’s a lot more acoustic. It’s more like folk and country music than before.We’re happy we’re getting to choose what we want to put out there as before we were kind of told what we were meant to be doing.”, Shelley said.

 

Bandmate Jaymi said he hopes that their fresh new music will display how much they’ve grown when it’s released.

 

“We’re a bit older now, you know? And it’s been a year since X Factor so we want to show that we’ve matured and I think that will come across in our new stuff.”

(I’m almost the same age and I haven’t really matured that much. It’s just scary when you hear another 1990’s person saying that! So immature, ain’t I? :-))

 

Jaymi also admitted that he thinks their new single might even be a contender for a Number One in Britain and added modestly,

“We’ve worked really hard on it and we’re really happy with it so hopefully people will like it too.”

Good luck lads! Hope it

 

 

 

Union J Dispel American Move Rumours And Talk New Album!

Union have denied rumors that they will be moving to Los Angeles while they are recording their new album.

Josh said on Twitter,

“Seeing all these rumours about us moving to LA/America! ……this isn’t true BUT I’m not saying we won’t be there very very soon.”

While his bandmate George added,

“We saw rumours that we were splitting up and we were just like, no not at all! Basically the idea is that we’re going over to LA in a month or so to record the video and record the new single. I think just everyone’s got a bit mixed up with us going to LA and like splitting up.”

But JJ did speak about their pending new album and revealed that the band may have the first single off the record already:

“So guys I think we might have heard are next single this week!!!!!! I’m soooo excited, think your going to like this one ???????? #unionjsingle.”

I’m sure it’ll be fab! Can’t wait! 🙂

Jaymi Hensley!

Jaymi Hensley!


George Shelley!

George Shelley!

Standing outside the tour bus George waited for Jaymi to arrive. He couldn’t wait to spend his first day both dating and working with Jaymi since they had signed their record contract. Jaymi soon arrived looking snazzy in Topman clothes and urban style runners.
“You look amazing.”, George smiled.
“So do you babe.”
“I’m just wearing a t-shirt and jeans.”
“Doesn’t matter. You always look amazing.”
They kiss gently.
“So this is the tour bus?”
“Yeah.”
“Can you believe it George?! An actual tour bus?!”, Jaymi said excitedly.
“Yeah. I seen something like that in our contract after all!”, George smiled.
Jaymi rolled his eyes and grinned.
“You know what I mean Smarty Pants!”
“Yeah. I love you Jaymi.”
“I love you too George.”
They kiss again. Josh and JJ come along.
“Oh you two get a room!”, Josh smiles and George and Jaymi smile and the four of them get on the tour bus.

The End.

I hope you all enjoyed it! 🙂

Jaymi!

Jaymi!

George!

George!

Jaymi walked up to the door of George’s house and raised his hand to knock at the door but stops and puts his hand down. He sighs. Can he do this?, he thinks. Is he able to control his anger, or worse his tears, when he sees George’s face. He puts his hand to his forehead. Why did life have to be so difficult sometimes? And yet it could be so gloriously wonderful too. Like when he was with George. Like when he was with George before he’d hurt him. And yet he couldn’t stop loving him. He had too invisible, magnetic hold over him that he couldn’t shake and part of him wanted to shake it. However, part of him didn’t want to shake it off either because that would be moving on from George. Not having him in his life anymore. Not seeing him again. And the idea of that hurt him. He didn’t want that. He couldn’t bear that. With that, he knocks at the door. Within seconds he can hear George’s footsteps coming. He knows the sound of his footsteps like an almost obsessed lovesick puppy. George answers the door.
“Jaymi, hi.”, he says awkwardly.
“Hi.”, Jaymi replies just about getting the word out.
His mouth has gone dry. His body has tensed up.
“Do you want to come in?”, George asks.
“Ok. Thanks.”
They go into the living-room.
“Sit down if you like.”, George says, neaves filtering through his voice.
“Thanks.”, Jaymi says just as nervous and sits down on the sofa.
George sits beside him.
“I didn’t think I’d ever see you again.”
“Makes two of us.”
“Meaning?”
“Meaning that I was going to get back with Olly.”
“Fickle, ain’t you?”
“Yeah, you’d know all about that, wouldn’t you?”
George sighs.
“Ok. Ok. I know that you hurt you but running back to your ex. It can’t have hurt you half as much as your making out.”
“I didn’t want to be alone with my thoughts, alright George?! I’m weak! I thought if I cling onto Olly I’ll forget you! But …”
“But what?”, George asked hopeful.
“But I can’t. I love you and I miss you but I can’t forgive you!”
“Jaymi, I will make this up to you …”
“You can’t.”
“If you really believe that, why are you here?”
“I don’t know. I just … I just can’t stay away from you.”
“Give me a chance.”
“I shouldn’t have came.”, Jaymi says getting up.
George catches his arm.
“Please. We can get through this.”
“I don’t know.”
George pulls Jaymi to him and kisses him passionately.
“I love you Jaymi. Please.”
Tears come into Jaymi’s eyes. George wipes his tears in his fingertips.
“I’m sorry babe. Forgive me.”
Jaymi sits down and cuddles himself into George’s side. George holds him close.
Though Jaymi is unsure that he is doing the right thing, he feels weak to how he feels for George.

More soon! 🙂

Josh Cuthbert joined the holiday later.

After his trip to France, Union J’s Josh Cuthbert has joined bandmates George Shelley and Jaymi Hensley and Jaymi’s partner Olly Marmon in Bardbados!

Josh tweeted a picture on Sunday of himself, Shelley and Hensley posing on the beach with the caption: ‘BEACH TIME with @JaymiUJWorld and @GeorgeUJWorld @JoshUJWorld ….. Never want this holiday to end !!!!’ 

He has been enjoying the Bajan waves on a jet ski, but tweeted on Sunday: ‘brilliant….I fell off my jet ski and lost my sunglasses’

Meanwhile Shelley has tweeted, ‘Back to Britain tomorrow. Missed you’

The band was spotted chatting together they tried out jet skis. Brave. I may be a coward talking but brave! Brave Olly also got a jet ski and there’s a cute pic of him and Jaymi next to each on their jet skis.

Jolly and George Shelley Enjoy Barbados!

Loved-up couple Jaymi and Olly and Jaymi’s bandmate George soak up the sun in Barbados!

The happy couple are all smiles on holiday this week!

Is there anything better than hot men at the beach?! 

Union J’s George Shelley and Jaymi Hensley and Jaymi’s partner, honorary fifth member Olly Marmon enjoyed a day out in Barbados at the beach recently. Sure isn’t well for some. Why not? 🙂

Jolly looked cute as always whilst wearing similar urban-style outfits on their holiday while having a lovers’ seaside stroll. George was beach bound also wearing a black and white star t-shirt paired with a pair of shorts and red baseball cap.

Jaymi and Olly are living together and are planning on getting married this December. Jaymi previously said to The Mirror of their wedding planning,

“I’m getting married in December. It’s going to be a big day… Management have been trying to say the next tour is in December so maybe we’ll get married during the interval.”

I hope they get the time to have a honeymoon just as nice as this holiday during the interval too. 🙂

The loved-up couple have been tweeting about the holiday on their Twitter pages with Jaymi tweeting,

“Happy holidays 🙂 perfect start @Olly9191 pic.twitter.com/SBYp7FVSah

as well as,
