Toys!

I just took some photos of some toys my good friend P Nut created and well, I thought I would share. He has a show coming up, February 20th - "Cool Kids Never Die" at 1810 Broadway SE @ 6pm. I had fun shooting these guys. This is just a small sample. There are tons more! And a lot of gold toys too.










At it again

Since I'm now out on my own doing the freelance photography gig, I finally had a chance to meet up with the Westside Boyz again. I really haven't seen them all winter. I was stoked to meet up with them again. And they were all stoked to see me. It was great.
Every time I plan on meeting up with them, I get it in my head that I have to get those epic shots. The ones that I'll look back on and be so glad I was there. I want to capture that moment that will never happen again. I remind my self when I get there to get into the action and not just stand back from a distance and shoot. It has got to the point now that where ever I am, they will come over. If I'm standing next to the half pipe, they'll yell out some trick that are about to do and I'll snap it. These guys really haven't stopped skating. I could see progress in all of them. I can see a lot of life in them when they're skating. And I can feel a lot of life in me when I'm out there shooting. For me, it's away to build my skills, think about the shot and framing it all while they're skating non-stop. It's fast and fun. I love being at it again!

Rulers



After 4 seasons, it was time for some new boots. I got the hook up on these Burton Rulers. I haven't had much luck with burton boots in the past. But these are working out well. I have 3 days on them so far. I love the Upper and Lower Zone lacing system.
So before I got them all the board, I thought I would play around with them and get a little photo action going.
