Run This Town

A few weeks ago, my friend Hollis and I woke up extra early to get in a work out. Well, he worked out, I just took the pictures! Check them out:








Plus a nice portrait:


Model: Hollis with Vision

Wardrobe: Valerie Pineda

Hair and Makeup: Jadyn Ngo

This shoot was really great. We got up bright and early to get the beautiful morning light and get all the good locations before they got too busy. Mornings can be tough when it’s really really early, but we kept the yawns away by laughing, having fun and keeping it really high energy. We shot in Santa Monica and Culver city at popular work out spots. To keep the backgrounds clean I had to choose the right angles, shooting up instead of straight forward or down. This can eliminate a lot of clutter in images.

As always, if you guys have any questions about how these images were shot or anything like that, please feel free to ask.

Olympic Sized Dreams

We are going to take a quick break from extreme sports to celebrate the world coming together for our greatest sporting event: The Olympics. A while ago I did a little shoot with a couple Olympic hopefuls, check out the shots!

The Olympics are one of my absolute favorite things, so it was an honor to spend an afternoon with a couple of America’s finest athletes.

Also, this year I am crazy stoked and honestly not surprised that one of the girls I grew up playing water polo with, Melissa Seidemann, is absolutely killing it for Team USA. The ladies won in overtime against Australia today to make it to the gold medal game on Thursday against Spain. I cannot wait for the game and I wish them the best of luck.

Tune back in at the end of the week for some X Games rally car action! In the mean time, make sure to to follow me on twitter, like my page on facebook and if you have a blog on tumblr, follow my new tumblr blog and share all of your favorite images with your friends on tumblr!

Freaky Styley

Last few pictures from Winter X Games 2012! Snowboard Slopestyle insanity!

Eric Willett coming over the second hit in the slopestyle course.

Mark McMorris, gold medal winner in slopestyle and big air, during practice.

Mikkel Bang after his first run in prelims.

Seppe Smitts on the second to last hit on the course. I dig this shot because you can get a feel for the whole run.

Charlotte van Gils in the sky.

Gjermund Braaten chatting with his coach during practice.

Mark McMorris going into an insane wall ride on the first hit.

Peetu Piiroinen taking off.

Gjermund Braaten going off the edge.

Peetu Piiroinen testing out the course on the first day of practice.

Shaun White on the Slopestyle course. Shaun was going to compete in slopestyle, but backed out after he tweaked his ankle in practice and decided to save himself for SuperPipe. It’s great he did because if he would have pushed it we may not have seen that history making 100.

Eric Willett waiting for a snowmobile back to the top of the course.

So that’s all she wrote! Until next winter, Aspen. Now, on to lots and lots of new work. Very excited to share the stuff I have been working on over the past couple months.
