October screen print for Thomas Knights
October screen print T-shirts and vests again, for one of our favourite photographers and film makers, Thomas Knights, As part of his RED HOT project to promote awareness around issues affecting the red haired gentlemen among us…an issue dear to our ginger English hearts here at October.
We often urge you to visit the websites we feature with our Screen Print T-shirts, but in this case, if you’re a lover of the moving and static image, you actually must take a trip around Thomas’s site — we could wax lyrical here, but we’ll leave his pictures to paint a thousand words….
Thomas Knights began his career as a music producer and performer. He now has screen print T shirts to add to the portfolio.
He quickly realised he also had a talent behind the camera. Inspired by underground visionaries like James Bidgood and Pierre Gilles, and the greats, like Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Guy Bourdin and David LaChapelle, he has a dark, cinematic yet pop approach to photography, film and music.
His many music videos for the likes of Marina And The Diamonds, Willy Moon, Karin Park and Maya Jane Coles have amassed millions of views online, and his photography has been featured in Marie Claire, InStyle, Dazed And Confused and Vogue Italia.
Last year Thomas was chosen by Rankin to feature in an exhibition showcasing emerging fashion photographers, and in collaboration with celebrated fashion photographer Tim Bret-Day and queen of nightlife Jodie Harsh, he produced a multidimensional exhibition featuring one hundred of London’s nightlife characters. The film was showcased exclusively on LOVE Magazine. He has also shot a Swarovski campaign with the singer Karin Park and his fashion film Tigress Reign was showcased at the Berlin Fashion Film Festival.
This year has already seen Thomas shoot a major Malibu campaign in Cyprus, 2 big budget music videos for Maya Jane Coles (and also featuring as a collaborator on her album Comfort) and the explosion of his first solo exhibition RED HOT, which has already amassed 30,000 re-blogs on Tumblr alone and has a growing Facebook and twitter following. He also announced his latest music venture Pandora Drive set for release at the end of the year. The dark disco record will also act as a creative vehicle for Thomas to explore his film and photography.
