Lewis Fredericks

Posted on February 3, 2016

Phoebe (Clyne) in Lewis Fredericks. All Photos/James K Lowe for Lewis Fredericks. A while ago me and James and Paige Best got together and created these images for Lewis Fredericks, an eyewear brand based out of New Zealand. They make handcrafted horn frames, they’re pretty dope – great quality and nice, classic styles (nothing too freaky or trendy here). Anyway, I thought you might like to see the images so here they are:

I have zero days to figure out how to do 25 full push-ups because the challenge ends tomorrow

Posted on November 30, 2015

  The above is a photo of me that my friend Lani told me makes me look cut, so of course I’m posting it here. Well, it’s basically what the title of this post says. Tomorrow at 4:00pm I’m meeting up with Kirsty and Lydia for the final workout of my four week long journey, where I’ll be ‘tested to see if I’ve reached my goals’, the main one of which is to do 25 full push ups on my toes, in one go. It’s been an interesting four weeks. I’ve worked out more than I’ve ever done in my entire life, mostly out of fear that I’m going to look like an idiot at the end of this and partly because I’ve actually come…

Tennis gears I saw and loved

Posted on November 25, 2015

Kind of crappy screenshots of Tory Sport gear/  I don’t know if you know, but of all the sports in the world I only really have interest in one, and that is tennis. There are a couple of reasons for this. Firstly, I played it as a kid so I guess it’s like anything – if you know the basics it’s easy to like a sport because you’re not absolutely shit at it. Secondly, it’s non contact, you don’t have to touch anyone whatsoever and the likelihood of getting hurt by another person is low. Thirdly, it’s not a team sport (unless you play doubles) so you don’t have that stress of everyone being mad at you if you fuck something up. Finally, tennis gears are dope.…

I have 24 full days to figure out how to do 25 full push-ups.

Posted on November 7, 2015

My Nike Training Schedule for the rest of the month.  I have 24 full days to figure out how to do 25 full push-ups. Simple enough. I mentioned this last week briefly, but if you didn’t see it I will recap: I am one week into a four-week Nike training programme put together by New Zealand fitness extraordinaire’s Kirsty Godso and Lydia O’Donnell. The programme was built based around some fitness goals I want to achieve and you know, my actual ability. If I’m being completely honest, my usual strategy with this kind of thing is to really play down my fitness level, give myself the easiest goals possible so I know that I can achieve them with least effort possible, post lots of instagrams of…

Highs and Low(e)s.

Posted on November 1, 2015

Madison (Clyne) on location for a shoot James and I (and a bunch of other great people) did for the upcoming issue of Remix.  Highs: This should’ve gone in last week’s Highs and Low(e)s but I didn’t do it because you know, long weekend. Anyway, you will already have seen the dance video for Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ and hello, New Zealanders doing great things, hellooooo. Those girls are bloody talented. If you haven’t seen The Royal Family’s World of Dance Los Angeles performance from a couple of months ago you really need to. Absolutely incredible. Also, if that’s not enough, here’s the close up. This is the only Selena Gomez song you need to listen to off her new album. Truss me daddi. Confession: I…
