I have shot pictures everyday for 6 weeks …….. I am not complaining ……. You know me I still completely love it always ……… I can’t help it I am totally obsessed …………. But my hands are kinda hurting from holding cameras too much ………. So its probably time for a day off :-)))))))) ……… Anyway this is the final frame on yesterdays shoot ……… A pretty demanding 3 day shoot for a mega private equity firm …….. Amanda here shown in mid air with me is involved with communications for the company …. she seemed pretty glad we had finally finished too :-))))))))))))))))))) hehehehe…………….

Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS…….. Thanks to Greg Morris for capturing this joyous moment hehehehehe ………… :-))))))))))) XXXXXXXXXXXXX

  • I think using the adjective “Mega” to describe a Private Equity fund is just wrong…how about “grasping cynical capitalist scum” private equity fund.. I think that is probably a bit more accurate don’t you??

  • Er Tony I think u have a fair bit of their cash in your back pocket … Hey the economy has to have activity to create jobs for everyone making things grow can’t be all bad :-))) XX

  • I’d rather work for Gazprom..or Haliburton…or Dr Beers, or the Arms Industry, or any number of those vile mining companies that regularly rape the third world..because at least they are honest and you actually know what they do, there is a process and an end product..and a market too…Private Equity Funds all equate to lying, a lack of transparency and the ethics of Bernie Madoff…what do those “Mega” guys actually invest in??.just curious…

    Tony B`Liar @ May 23, 2014, 10:18 am

  • Stuff worldwide … UK Russia Japan US … Bla bla … There philosophy is of course to invest in stuff and bring their expertise to bear to makes those companies wildly more successful some folks get very rich some just get ordinary jobs in those businesses I think they are like all sorts of other businesses but just on a drastically better financed higher stakes end of things I found it really interesting … :-)))

  • “My objective in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism” Karl Marx…..there can be no more noble ideals, it might have all gone horribly wrong…but what a man!

  • Yeah … it didnt really work out that well tis true … I once visited Novatketnext (sp?) at the time reputedly the most polluted city in the world on an assignment … In what was still the grimest of the grim Soviet Siberia … Dude … Anything those investment chaps r doin could not be worse than Uncle Joes Siberia and its not like they had even deposed God…. Compared to that first trip to Moscow and Siberia anything goin down in NYC is always pretty mega…hehehehehe :-)))) XXXCheers Jez XX

    Ps I’m not sure that’s true of Minneapols … Just missed my connection :-(( XX

  • We shoulda done one of these Paul they r becoming a bit of a tradition anytime we shoot on white… Dude u dragged that full size white and we never did the final jump pic… OK next time :-)) providing like u rudely point out that we can both still jump hehehehe….The joy of it bro … I’m stuck in Minneapolis and I can’t even spell it hehehehe….. Stand by on a flight in 2 hours confirmed in First class on a flight in 4 hours… Al the writer is gonna be getting dizzy in a holding pattern driving round and round the airport down in Phoenix waiting for me to arrive … At least he is a good bloke and will wait… He has the proper team spirit…. At least one famed writer I could name literally would not wait 2 mins I saw them roll off in our limo having said they would wait 5 mins the door shut the car rolled… Leaving me to try and get into Dublin Castle the Irish equivilant of the White House Ina grim battered taxi :-/ XX

  • It was wheels down Phoenix last night….. today ive been attempting to re-earn back my photojournalist wings John ……. working on an important and heavy duty story down here on the border, this has been a pretty hardcore photojournalistic day bro. Hey everyone needs money to eat and live its good to shoot real stories and then mix it up with some comercial stuff bro so you can afford to do real stories ……… :-))))))))Cheers Jez XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  • See that George Rodgers grandson has become a Californian spree killer who posted weird disturbing stuff on Youtube…strange world we live in..

    Georg Soros xx @ May 25, 2014, 8:08 am

  • He got to see the liberation of Paris and went to 176 countries in the 7 years of war …… but if he had lived to see his grandsons actions it would have perhaps shocked him more than anything he saw in his life……… :-////////Cheers bro Jez XXXXXXXXXXXX

  • Jess found Bones, mass graves and gun toting rightwing nutters shooting Mexicans when she went down there! JH

    John Harris @ May 26, 2014, 8:59 am

  • She is always hardcore photojourno John I am not attempting to be in the roll of Jess again but every now and again i dip back towards the true calling ……. there r some very serious issues down here …… ordinary people living in poverty on the Mexican side face threat and violence from gangs and narco and people trafficers…… the border itself has become a giant military complex its a slightly incredible grim place……. :-/////Cheers bro Jez XXXXXXX
