Congratulations Colin and Tanya

August 8th, 2008 No comments

So last night I was out to see my friend Simon who is back from his grape growing in France for his girlfriends sisters wedding, we got in a round of golf on Monday (where I crushed him I might add), and then everyone met up last night downtown. I think it had been 2 years since I saw Simon last, same with most of our friends. Colin who is always late, or has something else planned, said (obviously) he was going to be late today and he couldn’t change it. He did show up only an hour after me, so not really even late, but for the first (and probably last) time he had a valid excuse, he had a mini afternoon trip planned out for him and Tanya to go scuba diving, where he proposed to her. Congratulations to both of them on their engagement! (stole this photo from Tanyas FB)

Enlightened Art Show – Toronto

July 3rd, 2008 1 comment

If you’re in or around the Toronto area in the next couple of weeks (until July 28th I think) you should stop by the Steamwhistle brewery near the CN tower and check out the show that’s going on right now. It’s called the Enlightened Art Show, a series of photos by action sports photographers. I didn’t make it down for opening night, but Andrew Norton snagged this photo of the prints up (from left to right photos by: Brian Garson, Gonzo Tudela and Geoff Cliffard) . They took everyones digital files and created 2×3′ prints on light boxes, it looks really sick.

New OnDeck 20th Anniversary Board

November 13th, 2007 2 comments

So I’ve been keeping this one under wraps for a while, but this is hella sick. OnDeck is celebrating their 20th anniversary in business this year, so Tomas did up a new deck using my photos of each person on the team. They’re going to be available for purchase around Dec 1st in the shop. I’m looking forward to seeing them, and contact me if you’re looking to pick one up for yourself.

New portfolio website

October 8th, 2007 8 comments

Once again I switched up the “portfolio” part of my website, I felt like the previous version was lacking in oomph or something. So I spent the weekend going over photos and building out this flip book idea, with bigger and badder photos.

Anyways go check it out: http://briangarson.com and let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Miami

May 29th, 2007 No comments

Wow. Miami is a whole other world. I was down there for a week, and just got back this past weekend. The trip was really fun, I wish I was there for longer. I have a ton of photos to go through, so I’ll be posting some of those soon. Met some awesome people down there too, Dennis (king of Miami), Jack a filmer for MIA, Manny, Anthony, Johan and Cousin some local skate dudes, who kill it.

The beach was awesome, the weather was ridiculously warm and sunny all the time, and the accommodations were splendid. I definitely can’t wait to go back next year. My wife beater tan is second to none, and I finally started peeling this week.

Some highlights from the trip include: swimming, beering, skateboarding, taking photos, seeing and skating famous spots, calling out every third person on the street as Rick Ross, girls in bikini’s, girls in only bikini bottoms, yoshi, skating the benches on the old highway/pier, bullet ledge, crack head laughing at aaron after he fell, making nick almost cry, eating checkers 24/7, airplane rides with Chris, hanging out with a bunch of cool dudes everyday.

350 days till Miami.

New shoes

April 23rd, 2007 2 comments

Today was a good day to come home, had 2 packages waiting for me, one from Color Magazine and one from my friend Jennilee. Color sent me a t-shirt and a pair of Circa deck shoes which are damn comfy, and Jenni sent me these coming out soon Rodrigo tx 2′s that she designed. They look rad, I don’t think I will skate them.. at least not for the first month or two:

Just a little print

March 30th, 2007 No comments

So I’m participating in a gallery in Toronto that’s going to be running from April 4th to 27th, it’s a collection of various action sports photographers around North America. I had 3 photos picked from the 5 I submitted, but due to circumstances, I ended up just getting 1 done of Tomas.

Tomas - Full Pipe

Got it printed at Proulx in Ottawa, and mounted on MDF, I have to say they did a great job and I’m very happy with it. Details on the show if you want to check it out are available here.
