Back to Basics – Is Retro the New Future?

Maybe it’s a bit of a mid-life crisis, maybe it’s a bit of a subconscious push away from our instant consumer society, but I’ve recently found a new interest…I’ve just bought and started to play with a 1960’s film camera. Maybe slightly influenced by good friends who play in a very successful 1950’s-60’s tribute band and a visit to look at Paul Berriff’s Hidden Gallery of The Beatles (now unhidden and on show at Liverpool’s Mersey Ferry Ticket Office), I decided on a personal project to complement my day-to-day photography.

Dipping a toe in the water…

Stuart Homer Photography Ltd. is off to the beach, or The Beaches Hotel at least in a couple of weeks for the Daytripper Weekender event, a Beatles convention organised by our friend Glenn Mitchell. We’re going to be, for the first time, offering green-screen portraits on site – dipping a toe in the water as it were.

Daytripper WeekenderGuests will be able to pose for their photographs in front of our green-screen, before some really clever software does it’s stuff and transports them into a virtual reality – maybe The Cavern Club itself where the beatles made their name, maybe alongside the Fab Four on that famous Abbey Road zebra crossing, or on a magazine cover.

In addition, I’m also going to be photographing all the live music of the weekend including The Cavernites, The Mersey Beatles, The Beatelles, The Rockits and more. The perfect chance for the bands to extend their image portfolio with some of my live music photographs at a very special rate.

Check out Glenn’s site for all the info, and maybe see you there. It’s going to be a Fab weekend!
