Top 5 Feature with Brian Freeman

/ 05 October, 2015 /

It's odd when you're shooting people you've only ever known through videos.  You know what they're capable of, but not who they are.  Then it's  up to you, the photographer, to showcase their personality and yes, their tricks.  

Brian Freeman (BFree) was a pleasure to work with while he was shooting for his upcoming Bladergang VOD.  I didn't see myself shooting with him, but when you get the phone call to come on and shoot, off I go right?  

Anyway, here's a link to the feature if you want to take a look!  

Be-Mag Post Up On Sic Urethane Wheels

/ 01 August, 2015 /

It's something wild when I pop up to see Be-Mag pic up on the photo of Anthony Gallegos for his Pro Wheel.  Makes for a rad Saturday!  That and I get to shoot B-Free later today...That helps too.

Anthony Gallegos Pro Wheel for Sic Urethane

/ 29 July, 2015 /

Going through social media earlier and noticed this ad by Sic Urethane for my friend Anthony Gallegos.  Two things came to mind.  Couldn't have happened to a better guy!  Finally, a company willing to back this talented skater.  Two, whoa, that's my photo. lol. Thanks guys for the heads up, but not really.  Still, Very rad that they dug the photo enough to turn it into an ad!


Posted this up and actually got a response from the owner of Sic Urethane.  I just appreciate that a guy I have long supported, even made a skate video for, is finally getting a wheel.  Seems small, but it's probably the best news of the week!

The little things are a surprise

/ 22 July, 2015 /

I was going through my social media and noticed my friend and professional rollerblader/musician posted up some songs on soundcloud.  To my surprise, he used a portrait I took of him a few weeks ago as his album art.  It's surreal given I used to watch him skate growing up and only 10 months ago really got to meet him.  And these days, my photos are making it onto his music.  It's surreal!

Check out his music if you get a chance on Soundcloud!  And if you like him, he's got an Instagram of all his travels on wheels and music production life.

Victor Galicia Interview on Wheel Scene Magazine

/ 15 July, 2015 /

It's been over a year since I shot with Victor Galicia and finally, these photos are out in the daylight!  Originally, Wheel Scene wanted these last summer for a possible cover, which turned into the magazine's silence and for a while, no one was sure if they were still alive.  After a resurgence, I reached out and shot them over these photos.  Though by that point, I had piecemealed several photos to Be-Mag, Haitian Magazine, The Booted.  Luckily for me, Victor had a nice stack of images!

It gets weird though.  During the interview process, the editor is going back and forth with me, asking questions about Victor because he can't get a solid answer.  I'm not sure what to tell him.  Victor is an enigma wrapped in a labyrinth.  All I can truly say about Victor is you can never anticipate his thoughts and movements.

The good news is the story is finally up!  The less than good news is the editor decided the interview raised more questions than it answered.  That's what it's like hanging with Victor.  You just gotta take him as is.
