Tim Sprague for Boys by Girls

"Nothing is lost, it's just undiscovered."

I met Tim at a random casting in February last year, and he is now one of my best friends, a key member to the Boys by Girls team and a valued adviser in my life. Sometimes we find things that was previously undiscovered when paths are meant to cross. I can't say enough good things about Tim, his talents and his good heart, as I have watched him grow the last year and become such a unique and wonderful person. Now having found new paths, knowing himself better and a constant shining light of many, it is wish such fondness I look back at our shoot for Boys by Girls issue 7.

We ditched the usual team and went for the unique Boys at Home approach that BBG is getting known for, and captured some really simple, yet stunning instant film images. This image, hangs on my wall in addition to having it's home in issue 7 "Obsessions".

"I want to destroy everything. I can't help it, it's in my nature. I want to tear everything down, and rebuild it, re-appropriate it. I want to shroud us in the remnants of a beautiful chaos."

Kojey Radical for Boys by Girls Magazine

Some boys are so multi-talented that you can't help but be inspired. Kojey Radical is definitely one of those boys. A word smith genius and modern day poet, Kojey has a talent for anything creative, and he has things to say.

One of my favourite "boys at home" shoots in a long time for Boys by Girls Issue 7, as we sat on his dad's velvet sofa talking creativity, poetry, girls and something about a dude in a river.

John Meadows for Boys by Girls Magazine

Some boys have such a unique character about them, and when I first met John during my i-D shoot last summer, I immediately wanted to feature him in my own magazine. One of those timeless, quirky beauties, John's shy persona with the perfect sense of British humour drew me in to want to learn more about this boy.

This story was captured in his home town of Windsor, where he showed me and my team his favourite places to chill and walk about.

Ballet Dancer Sander Blommaert for Boys by Girls Magazine

Every now and then I get to do some really amazing things, and for Boys by Girls Issue 7, once of them was to join ballet dancer Sander Blommaert for a day at his dancing studio at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The Royal Ballet artist moved with such grace and talked to me about his passion and commitment to his art form, and I was completely captivated by this world. His honest interview reveals his great character and the story behind the perfection of the world of ballet.

Every now and then a band comes along that you really connect with and who's music you simply can't live without. Conor and Nothing But Thieves was definitely one of those bands.

Sean Joseph Young - Two Housemates

When actor Sean Joseph Young said he was making web series, I knew it was something that I'd like to watch. I expected quirkily, funny and slightly odd. I got it all. Very much enjoyed!

Looking back at this picture, which is now like a year old (cause I'm super slow on my blog cause the world spins very very fast), this is the shortest hair I have ever seen Sean have. Not that this is important in any way. I hear there may be a second series of Two Housemates though.
