Captured over the course of a handful of years and spanning thousands of miles of travel across California, and to Arizona, Texas, and Utah these 14 images feature some old friends and also riders whom I've shot with only once. As with every image I create there is bound to be a story behind how it was created and relationship with the subject. I haven't been making this sort of work nearly as often these days, but I will always be thankful for the opportunity to shoot with so many talented individuals and the memories made with each and every one of them.
Last October my older brother and his good friend Brandon James opened the doors at their new business Pitch Black Editions, a fine art printing and frame shop in Concord, Massachusetts. I recently got some work in the mail that they did for me, and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! If you are a photographer looking to have some work printed or framed they are a great option, and if you are looking to get your hands on an image of mine please be in touch.
Last July I had the opportunity to cover The Street Series BMX Day Jam in San Francisco, which had an overwhelming turnout of well over 500 riders from all over the West Coast. As Monster begins to plan this year's events DIG shared a photo gallery I shot that afternoon. What a day!
For BMX Rider Magazine's 22nd issue they showcased work from a selection of BMX photographers from around the world in a special photo issue. I am proud to have an interview and 10 page portfolio in print alongside some other really talented photographers, including a couple of my personal favorites.
Owen Dawson Youth of Today Interview - My latest work for DIG features Owen Dawson, a very talented young rider from Vancouver, who was a pleasure to work with. I caught Owen at the tail end of his stay in California, and spent a couple of afternoons shooting with him before he road tripped back home.
