Redline Catalog

Front cover
Back cover
Just got the new Redline catalog straight from Las Vegas. Evan Moss at Redline did a great job with the layout and out did himself from last years catalog. Thanks to Tim Thompson for driving all the way out to Vegas and back to get me my very own copy and Fuzzy for giving me the opportunity to shoot the catalog. I shot the photos of Josh Hult and Fuzzy (both images are on the right of each photo).

Old photo

I was looking through a magazine the other day and came across a photo that has brought up some not so fond memories. Here are some things that went into this photo:
-this photo was the second attempt
-4 hours worth of preparation.
-12' ladder on top of a 4' deck is very scary. At one point I was on the very top step reaching out as far as I could. 5' quarter plus a 12' ladder equals a 17' fall to flat. Good thing I didn't fall.
-two packages of black and white construction paper that my wife was nice enough to help me cut into half.
-my friend John-eric was nice enough to let me use his 70-200 lens to shoot it with. I shouldn't have borrowed it because I ended up buying it later on.

Thanks goes out to Chris Arriaga for putting up with my idea, checkmate!

Dew Tour in Salt Lake

I'm getting really excited for the Dew Tour this week. Last year was amazing. These are the reasons why:
-Mike Aitken showed all the riders how to ride the course brakeless.
-Cameron White pulled the first backflip barspin tailwhip in a competition.
-Jamie Bestwick went 10' higher than everyone else and did tricks at the same height.
-I had the chance to talk to Chris Doyle.
Remember, these are scans out of a magazine

Arrive Magazine shoot with Mo Rocca

Now I'm allowd to spill the beans about the shoot in New York with Bryan Niven. Arrive Magazine wanted Bryan to shoot some portraits of Mo Rocca for an issue of theirs. Even though we only shot one day from 9 a.m. to 3p.m. we had the rest of the 5 days to see the sites. It was fun to work with Bryan. I owe him a pat on the back. Enjoy the photos
