So after our month off we’ve come back fresh with ideas for how we can innovate the way we document just how great it is to #HOM.
We Should Hang Out More is about people. People are sexy. Like, really sexy. Like, so sexy that we thought we’d bring in one of the best young talents in the world of photography to document just how sexy everyone is.
From the pages of Vogue, Fashion week in NYC to drag queens in LA or dinner with Adam Lambert – the career of BIGBADLLAMA (Tony Webster), has taken off at rocket pace.
He spent 7 years as a humanitarian aid worker, travelling the globe and developing a passion for photography which has seen him featured on Vogue.it over ten times, shot with Boy London, Elle UK, shoot music videos with Rupauls Drag Race winner Raja Gemini, shoot at New York Fashion week and when he’s not doing that he’s cuddling his two little dogs or photographing scantily clad men for his side project ‘filthybadllama’ – which has been dubbed ‘homotography’ or ‘hipster porn’.
Probably worth mentioning his last club shoot in Glasgow… Mixmag’s feature on Subculture’s 20th birthday…
Stereo is a great space for its urban feel with all its nooks and crannies; we thought we might as well go and set up a booth in one of them where Tony can do his thing.
Now getting your photo taken by someone who has snapped for the most famous fashion publications (F*****G VOGUE!!) in the world can be intimidating so just to take the edge off we thought we’d throw in a few surprises on our runway…. Expect the unexpected.
AS ALWAYS El Horno, Shahaa Tops and The Phatman Bhatman will be providing aural and visual delight from start to finish – the dance floor will be its own domain; there’s no obligation to make it into Tony’s next Vogue spread but…y’know, you’re gorgeous; it would be a shame not to.
Vogue-quality photos for all and salacious disco vibes for £6?
Don’t say we’re not good to you ☺
Lights, camera… #HOM… Action.
