I want to thank you for stopping by. This blog will be an outlet to show my day to day work, alongside anything else that comes up along the way. My mind is constantly thinking of all things photography. It is extremely hard for me to simply step back and take in the moment. I feel a constant need to capture each instant so that I have something to look back on. It's kind of like having a visual history of my life through the images I create. Now that i have this outlet maybe I can, finally, get some sleep at night and let my mind rest.
The last stop of the Ride with Us Tour was a little while back. After a long summer of travels and sk8ing tons of parks all over, this RWUS was here in Boulder. That made it nice and easy to come out and hang and capture the team having fun. Everyone met up at Satellite for a BBQ and then headed over to Boulder sk8 park which is just down the street from the shop. Here is what I got from the day of hanging. Big thanks to Satellite, Redbull, Vans and the whole crew for a summer of fun.
Growing up I’m sure just about every kid alive said, “I want a tree house!” Being a big kid now, I think I would substitute the tree house with a mini ramp. Believe it or not, there are some people out there who have both… the tree house and a mini ramp. As you can see, this is the first day of the build and things are still pretty rough. Our goal for the day was to get the ramp assembled and leveled. With a few more hours and a few more people to help, this mini will be ready to skate. The next step will be to lay down the plywood and then the sk8 lite. I’ll keep you posted on our progress.
The Ride with Us Tour rolled into Silverthorne and Edwards skate parks a few weeks ago. With several car loads of skaters and camping equipment in tow, this event was going to be fun. The game plan was like usual, no game plan! Our mission was to just have fun with friends and skate as much as possible. On the way to Edwards we made a quick stop at the Silverthorne park to get warmed up and to get out of the car for a few hours. After 2-3 hours, we packed up the cars and the crew and headed further west to Edwards. Upon arriving, we found an empty park, but decided it was a little hot, so we headed to the creek to cool off a bit. After a dip, it was game on at the park. By this time, several more people had shown up and things were starting to go down. A number of hours later, everyone was tired from a great day of riding and we headed to our camp site for the night. The camp site happened to be on a private 5 acre property equipped with mini ramp/bowl, trampoline and a giant groove of Aspens. Oakley was also kind enough to throw a BBQ for everyone up at the spot, so we were styled (to say the least). Here are some frames I was able to capture from the weekend trip. Big thanks to Satellite, RedBull and Oakley for the fun times. I also want to thank EW and family for letting us enjoy your private retreat in the mountains.
