movie clip monday #1

so friday is rad, the cure said it best "friday i'm in love"... monday is not so rad. back to work, back to school, back to whatever responsibility you may have... at any rate i am starting movie clip monday to help with this. just a great clip from movie history, or maybe just an awesome 80's movie clip... nevertheless, it is there to make you smile.

enjoy

enjoi

enjoi has had some great ads. i use to have this one hanging up in the office, mostly because the only thing better in tahoe then hearing the word "hella" was hearing the phrase "hella tight"... enjoi

vote for kara

my good friend and snowboarder who i like to photograph, kara rennie is trying to win some car. believe me, she needs it. i rode in her car last week. the door is broken so it always makes the noise that warns you the door is open(update:that has been properly fixed with some duct tape), it has no reverse(try and imagine your parking situation when you always have to think if you will need to back out to get out), it has no side view mirrors, it has a messed up front wheel and thus a messed up front tire, it is pretty much one step above a flintstone's vehicle. so at any rate, if you have a second, vote for her and maybe she will get a new car. think of it this way, even if you do not know kara and do not care, it will make the roads safer just having her vw golf off the road. see everyone wins!
check the link HERE for the contest and help kara out.

ahh, april in breck

finished up my trip to breck with some more fun night missions and some sunny park days. super stoked on the trip, many thanks to kara and jordie for their snowboard stuntary and hospitality, many thanks to breckenridge for having a great park, thanks to the weatherman for being wrong and getting some sunshine, and a big fuck you to the swiss riders for getting me drunk with games of bagök and subsequently giving me a splitting headache for most of the trip(actually i hold myself totally accountable for that and harbor no harsh feelings towards the swiss or any euros for that matter, keep on partying until 5am boys).
kara... bagök!

jordie... bagök!

teddy karlinski

jordie karlinski... there must be something in the water at the karlinski house

kara is not a karlinski, but she is still better then you

even with a broken wrist... casts are slimy and itchy

rider is unknown but the grab sure isn't

mmmm

breck visit

as the season wraps up, i wanted to make at least one more photo trip out west. so i called my friends kara rennie and jordie karlinski who i met last season on the nikita trip. a super saver continental ticket later and i am back in the hills.
we have been on a few missions so far, first one was a bit of a bummer because the speed needed to make the cool happen just wasn't there.
jordie showing the problem here

oh well, still got to head up to breck and ride the mountain a bit. their terrain park looks as nice as ever and we managed to find a few patches of blue sky and sun to shoot in. by the end of the day we were looking at full on spring conditions in the pipe and some good times.
the japanese national team was there, man those guys were good.

not to be outdone jordie sails out of the frame on this one.

kara, grabbing some rail and rays

this was my tribute to lee friedlander whos exhibit i just saw at the cleveland museum of art. lee liked to put himself and his shadows in the frame...

after the day on the hill we set up a bit of a night shot, super stoked on the outcome, you will have to guess what happened here...

this will make your day better...

i know it did mine.

stay out of here

old skate

currently working on getting everything i have organized and backed up. kinda fun because it forces me to look at everything and make some decisions. looking through old photos always makes me sentimental. even if they weren't the best of times, I seem to only remember what was good and what was fun. old skate photos remind me of my summers running the wv skate camp. tons of fun, kids were usually pretty good, parents were usually pains in the ass, but the best part and hardest part was dealing with all the coaches. not always the most reliable of folks, but when all was said and done, they were awesome. always enjoyed heading out with them in the few moments of off/down time and shooting photos.
