Been holding onto this one last summer, this was either 5 minutes before, or 5 minutes after Keith landed ass first on his board.
I think for anyone that knows Aaron the real title of this blog post should be Aaron can die now, he’s in Miami or Tampa with Tomas and Charlie this week and next. I don’t know what he’s going to do when he sees this, probably cry, I don’t even want to know the motivation he’s going to have when he gets back.
Anyways I shot this FS Flip of Aaron on the first or second day shooting this spring, it was the day Sarah Dea, James and that other dude came out actually (if you scroll a few back you can see a loose fish photo of them all set up). Anyways fs flip over the chain, I was hyped on this from Day 1.
I also got a few more photos, in the magazine, specifically this big one of my good friend Tomas on the mini at OnDeck and a few photos of the shop, our trip to miami and Trev. ( bottom left photo 2nd from the left is Chris, 3rd from the left is me.. who knew!)
I got my first double page spread in a magazine, and a little portrait of Sam as well. Color released a regular size magazine which if you’re not familiar isn’t normal for Color, normally they release big square shaped mags. I shot this photo almost 2 years ago of Sam Lind, congrats to him on his first photo in a magazine and having steezy front feebles.
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.
I got a few photos and a short article written by Keith in Confused Media skateboard magazine from Vancouver. I was supposed to send in photos forever to them but I always put it off, forgot about it, so on and so on, so I guess they just got fed up and grabbed the photos off my blog and ran with them. I’m pretty impressed they printed as well as they did. Anyways here’s some old ones of Aaron, Keith and Neil.
I got an email a few weeks ago asking for my mailing information, which meant SBC was actually going to run an article on my good friend Sean Fraser.. aka Fox Fraser, sure enough Friday afternoon Sean called me; which meant he had seen it too. Sean got a small write up about him playing shows in and around the Laurentians area if you get the chance to see him, it’s well worth it.
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.
Skateboard Village.com released their 2nd issue of their new magazine, which is available here: Spring 2007 in flash format, once again I have two photos in it. The dudes putting it together are doing a great job, and hopefully it starts to take off soon with more people checking it out each issue. Spread the word if you can.
So I got sent a link today by my friend Ben to the french MSN homepage, lo and behold, 2 of my photos are up on the site, I love when no permission is asked, makes getting paid that much easier. Invoice will be out in the mail tomorrow.
I finally got the new Color mag in the mail yesterday, it was much anticipated to say the least. This is the first time I’ve had a skate photo published in a skate magazine, so I was hella stoked, even more stoked that it’s Color Mag. If you can find it, pick up a copy, Jeremy Elkin’s new film Floorwork premiering soonish has a 4 pager in there with some rad photos, including a 2 page spread by my buddy Ben Fournier.
