Backflip at Blackrock

I've been working on my Ireland photos... they should be ready by November.

This kid was gnarly.

He did a sweet gainer after this but my flash misfired and I missed it.

(Big) Group show

Man thats a lot of people huh?..If anyone that looks at this lives in Vancouver, there's a one night only show on the 26th. It looks like it could be good...its a cool idea. I have nine photos showing and hope it all goes well.

Thanks to Jennilee for the invite!

More black and whites

Big man in a little car... this is the same guy with those gnarly blue eyes from a few posts back.

A 3/4 sideline view of a model posing for Luis.


..from out west

I dodged the paper out too much and now it looks kind of retarded....meh. You get the idea. Sketchy/trashy white folks doing dumb desert stuff.

Here's Justin holding one of those smoke bombs that would later burn the shit out of my hand.

Drifting around over there..

More signs

Couple more signs from out west.

I'm pretty stoked with the stuff from Utah but I don't want to put up any selects till its all done, edited, and on the website. I'll try post more b roll from Utah and Ireland as I go.

Impound is where a car goes after it completes a near record run. Early the next morning it has to do another run and the two are averaged as the top speed.

I spent every dawn hanging around the impound, drinking coffee and eating and talking. Once the record runs started I would take my press pass and go all the way out to the very end. Most of the photos from the project were taken out at the end of the seven mile course.


..in Jersey on a shoot for Luis last June.

This Jpeg is from a shitty print scan.. for some reason I can't take the saturation down without him looking all dead.

Waiting around

Some models waiting around for Luis to take their picture.


This was in Paris a few months ago.


I've been working on photos from Utah all week..forgot how much of a pain in the ass negative scans are.

This photo is too grainy/shitty for my liking. I drove out with these folks every morning around 5:45. The racers start their record breaking runs at 7. This was shot out the car window with a half second exposure while trying not to run into cones or potholes.

The first hour of daylight, when your out in the middle of nowhere salt flats, is one of the weirdest, quietest places you'll ever experience.

There sure is a lot of room out in west Utah. This photo below was taken at around 10 in the evening. The dad was trying to get the little girls shoe out of the salt. This exposure was around 3 or 4 seconds.

Every day the officials in Bonneville close the salt at 8. That would give me two more hours of daylight to cruise around in. I did lots of exploring in nearby Wendover and caught this kid front flipping.

Pretty lucky too.. that wall in the foreground is about 7 feet high and I heard splashes, got on a boulder, and took this quick photo.. right after he surfaced they closed the pool down. Its all alone on the contact sheet.

Shot sign

A shot up sign out in Nevada.

Sound stage

Long shot of a set while working for Luis.

Taken a few months ago in London.


Back from the break...here are some tourism snaps from Ireland.

This is the Cliffs of Moher on the west coast. Huge tourism/suicide spot.

Every now and then the sun would come out and I would take lots of grassy pictures like this one.
