A lot of times when I’m out doing things I end up going until it gets dark and this day was no different. As sunset rolled around I drove by this railway with this sky and of course, had to stop for another half hour to snap a bunch of shots as the sun dipped behind the clouds. This railway goes to the Bonneville Salt Flats to the west and to the Morton salt factory, then to Salt Lake City to the east. It’s a spot I’ve actually driven by a ton of times in the past few years but this was the first time I had actually stopped and noticed the visual element of the train tracks. Unfortunately, there wasn’t a train coming…..

I came across this guy the first day in Tokyo, cruising through the insanely busy streets of the Shibuya district with Jen Hudak and Julian Carr last February. This guy, damn. If I were a bum, I’d probably look exactly like him. Scary look into the future huh? We tried to have an impromptu Discrete Headwear shoot but even after we offered him money, he declined. But I at least got this one.
I’m currently at Sun Valley, Idaho where I’ve spent a bit of time over the past few years with the Level 1 and 4Bi9 crews doing some park shoots both in winter, and in the spring after closing. Since I’m here now I thought I’d post some of my favorite shots that didn’t make the cut for the magazines last year. This one is of Ian Cosco during a shoot for Scott Sports & Monster Energy. It’s not as apparent that it’s a shoot for Scott, as it is that Monster was involved with the shape of the jump…haha. I hope you can pick that one up yourself. Look for some more Sun Valley shots from last season to come through over the next few days.
We have a pretty epic view from the hotel room in Tokyo I’ve been staying at for the last four days. Tonight was the best sunset of the four days to say the least. Unfortunately, our crew is leaving tomorrow. I’ll have an update in the next few days.
A few weeks ago I went out to Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, UT to help out Orlando Echeverria on his shoot for Modified Magazine of Aaron Brown’s Mitsubishi Evo 9. Orlando’s shown me a bit with his camera rig shots and has a bit on his blog here of the behind the scenes. As much as I’d love to be shooting my own rig shots, I haven’t committed to the investment of getting a proper rig, as they are quite expensive for me to do that right now!
Anyhoo, I finally got a chance to use some graduated neutral density filters, and take a car portrait out on the track so it was a pretty good day of new things for me. I do have to say, driving my truck on a race track to get out to the shooting location was so so so painful……a truck, on a race track. Yah.
A random funny potrait out-take from a shoot for Saga Outerwear’s web giveaway campaign back in July. The shots they ended up going with were a bit more on the hectic and abrasive end so the more simple shots were more for fun. Wiley’s hair was going big Spicoli style so thought we’d get a bit more entertaining with this one. Another fun shoot as usual at the Saga offices.
Just a sunset and a dirt jump. Too add to the list of new subjects to shoot this summer, today I gave mountain bike dirt jumping a go. I came up to check out the jumps with Carston Oliver yesterday and was hoping we’d get a sunset today. Just about 45 min before sunset the clouds broke so we ran up to the zone to give it a go. Things turned out pretty well for my first go at it, lighting with dirt can be pretty tricky compared to the giant reflective canvas of snow that I’m used to. It was pretty fun and I can’t wait to get another go at it. Here’s what it looked like today, glad we made it out!
