I’ve been posting a lot of my old BMX photos up on Instagram over the past few years. (Since June, 2011?!) Despite the bulk of material that is up there, I still have more. Primarily a mix of photography and typography with the odd photo of my daughter thrown in.
The Hevil DVD was released earlier this year by Surrey Steve, a DVD in the making since the early “double ohs.” It covers the Vancouver scene from around 2002 until 2005, but not limited to that time period. It’s such a wild snap shot of time, when I was editor of Chase BMX Magazine, and roaming around the Lower Mainland with many of these guys. Wild scene. The Northern Embassy posted a few photos of mine along with an interview of Surrey Steve.
I wrote a few words on Spike Jonze – the photographer and a few of his photos. You can read it all over at the C41 Blog.
The photo below (shot by Spike Jonze) of Eddie Roman was given to me by Ron Wilkerson. Ron had a huge stash of Spike photos that he used for his 2-hip zine back in the day. Going through that stash was like panning for gold – but with better odds.
I covered the final race of the season for the UCI Supercross series in Abbotsford on September 14-15. Man, what a great weekend. There’s a full screen gallery of some of my fave shots from the weekend here.
In addition, there’s plenty of coverage with my photos over on FATBMX.com.
I shot a gallery of photos of Canadian Olympic BMX team member Tory Nyhaug for ESPN. I caught Tory out at the Abbotsford BMX track on a scorcher of a day just before he left for Europe. As an added bonus, Team Philippines member Danny Caluag was there too. This was such an unique experience. Even though it’s BMX and I’ve shot a thousand BMX photos, the recent obstacles that Tory has had to overcome to get his spot on the Canadian roster made this shoot exciting. The gate drops in London for time trials on August 8th! A big round of thanks to Pat Nugent for the story! Check out the gallery here…
