Before we move like Wiley Coyote ‘n’ roll deep down route 66 in search of Road Runner, let’s address a mistake made in the previous entry. At the point of writin’, I only ‘knew’ Kiran from Insta. We’d never met in person. So when we linked up, created some content ‘n’ posted, I mistakenly addressed her as Kira. It’s Kiran. K. I. R. A. N. Kiran. Seein’ as I had a dope shoot ‘longside Kiran the first time, we conversed ‘n’ agreed on a second link up to create more content. So that’s what Kiran and I did. Why have I mentioned her name so many times in one paragraph? It’s to remind myself to do my due diligence ‘n’ not get sh*t wrong. ‘N’ I call myself a student of the game! Clearly wasn’t paying’ attention in class. Anyhow, today, I introduce to you: DemzVisuals: Kiran Part 2.
At the point of this shoot, It was the most fun I’d had. It was relaxed; it was jovial; and the energies were aligned. Yet another Creative I’ve had the pleasure of meetin’ through DA YIC, Mamo’s a cool kid. He’s one of the youngers with their head screwed. Currently studyin’ at uni, he’s also signed to Boss Model management. When I was his age, I’d recently dropped out of uni (my first attempt), ‘n’ came back to the bits on my bullsh*t with my boys instead of tryin’ to make positive moves. I feel a sense of pride when I see the youngers opt for positivity ‘n’ not allow themselves to become ‘stuck in the mud’ – word to Isaiah Rashad. So, it’s with pleasure I can say: today I present to you DemzVisuals: Mamo.
Tuesday 03rd September was an incredibly productive day. I said it before ‘n’ I’ll say it again – what started as an initial meetin’ with Joe to catch up ‘n’ test out the 35 turned into a creative accident. By the time I was headin’ home, I captured enough images to curate around a solid week of content – both as Insta posts ‘n’ blog entries. Though a man of routine, expect the unexpected. ‘N’ when the unexpected should meander its way into your tried ‘n’ tested trodden paths, be ready to go off course. Because of course, these are the moments in which we thrive. Today I present to you: DemzVisuals: Taryle ‘n’ Keenan.
In the immortal words uttered by Aaliyah Dana Haughton, the reason I have been a widower since 2001: “if at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off ‘n’ try again”. I actually just switched off one of my house playlists (I listen to Deep House whilst bloggin’, editin’ ‘n’ creatin’ content), to put Try Again on. I haven’t listened to this record in a while. The marriage between Timbaland ‘n’ Aaliyah’s angelic vocals – perfection! Anyhow, I’m gettin’ side-tracked as per. That’s not why we’re here. We’re here to plug some content. Today I present to you: Demz Visuals: JS Visuals – Take 2.
No trilogy is complete without the third act. As I typed that sentence, I realised the utter waffle behind that statement. Without a third act, there is no trilogy – you’ve merely got yourself a sequel. ‘N’ if that was the case, we wouldn’t be able to complete the ‘Scenes from an Unexpected Trilogy’. Go figure. Now, here’s the real. Of the trio, Ethan was the one I conversed with least. This wasn’t due to any ill will or malice. No negative connotation should be taken from that fact. It’s just that in the near two hours we spent with ‘the trio’, we were mainly focused on traversin NQ ‘n’ China Town. But in that time, I did manage to get a few snaps of da kid. Today I introduce to you: DemzVisuals: Ethan.
Here he is – Mr Olympus himself. So glad he decided to descend from his godly vantage to mingle with us mere mortals ‘n’ create some dope content. I’m truly honoured. Jokes aside, this is part deux of the ‘Scenes from an Unexpected Trilogy’. An avid shooter himself, in a conversation post shootin’, he confided that he is on the cusp of a photography ‘n’ design degree at uni, ‘n’ he also dabbles in architectural photography. He sees a career in this. ‘N’ why not hey? Follow your heart I say. Many of us have failed in our attempt to make the subconscious a reality due to reasons rangin’ from fear, lack of motivation, or dedication. Follow your heart young man. Today I introduce to you: DemzVisuals: Shedy.
One of the things I truly love about content creation is the spontaneity. You pack your gear ‘n’ leave your house with a pre-destined motive in mind, but along the way, you may deviate from the path. But there’s beauty in deviation. I’m a man who likes a plan. I’m a man of routine. I’m the guy that makes a plan, to make a plan. Monica Gellar/Bing anyone? That bein’ said, I have allowed myself to recognise opportunity in deviation. Yes it’s good to have a set structure, but when life throws somethin’ out the ordinary, have an open mind ‘n’ go with the flow. It could lead to some brilliant connections – ‘n’ dope content! It’s this open mind which has allowed me to curate the next three posts which I have dubbed: ‘Scenes from an Unexpected Trilogy’. But let’s take it step at a time. Today I introduce to you: DemzVisuals: Dom Braund.
