website update

I just updated my website for the first time in quite a while.

I changed around the galleries, adding new photos and taking out some older ones. I also added sections with some of my published work and commercial work.

I took the print galleries down. Please just contact me if you are interested in buying a print, and we can work something out.

I hope that you enjoy looking through my newer photos.

last shots

The lab that I've been taking my film to here in Portland happens to be really close to the famous Burnside Skate Park.

Created under the Burnside Bridge in 1990 without city permission, the project started modestly, but with passion. Within a couple years, people saw that it was a good thing, and it gained support and funding. With passion, motivation, and the money to build, it didn't take too long for the park under the bridge to become awesome. That's the short version of the story, at least.

I have memories of playing Tony Hawk's Pro Skater on playstation with my friends a decade ago, with Burnside as one of the main parks.

Being under that bridge watching the people skate reminded me of those good times skating in the driveway, snowboarding in the backyard, coming inside and playing Tony Hawk while warming up to some hot chocolate...

Anyway, I had two photos to finish up before I took my film to the lab. One on my 35mm and one on my holga. Here are those last shots.

Part 3

Click here to read part 3 of the road trip journal, describing the drive from Arizona to Oregon.

Here's a shot that I took at the beginning of that part of the journey -- on an overcast evening back in July.

SE to NW

I haven't updated anything on here in a while. Sorry for that.

Towards the end of the summer I moved from the East Coast of Florida to Portland Oregon. I have a little write-up on the move in three separate parts here, and here.

Part 3 to come soon.

About a year ago, when I first got to Australia, I updated my website. I haven't really added anything since then, and it's time to integrate some of the past year's photos in, while taking out some of the old ones. Check back in a bit to see when that is finished. I expect it to look quite a bit different.

Once I'm all caught up with that, I hope to post more often on here. I have a couple video edits to show, and of course I'll have new photos. Until then, I hope you find the photos and writing from the road trip interesting.

Here's another photo from New Zealand that I like.

It's of Analisa heading out to bellyboard at a beautiful spot on the south island. So fun. Beauty in the water, beauty in the mountains, beauty crossing the road.

Our friend Parrish makes these boards and they are extremely fun to ride. Kinda like boogie boarding, but the flex and thinness of the wood makes it trim better, more responsive, and just way better overall.

Back in December, Drift Magazine interviewed me about my life and my work. It was published last week. They are also selling a limited edition print of mine.

I like Drift's style and content, and their work is worth checking out. There are plenty of features to keep you interested and entertained.

new zealand

After the Noosa festival, and the Australia trip in general, we flew over to New Zealand while we were still on that side of the globe.

The trip to NZ wasn't really a work trip, although I took a ton of photos that I think I'll be able to do something with. It wasn't really a surf trip, but I got a lot of great waves. Basically it was just a vacation at the end of a year abroad, but it was one of the best places I've ever been, if not the best.

Anyway, I'm scanning a bunch of the photos now. Along with the digital photos I shot, and plenty of images that haven't been shown from Australia, I have a lot I can put up here.

I'll do it a little bit at a time.

I'll start with just one.

This fall I'm moving to Oregon. I've never been there, but I imagine parts of it look like this...and I like that.

noosa festival action

I was looking through my action photos from the Noosa Longboard Festival, trying to choose which ones to put on here. I was trying to narrow it down to 10 or 15, and was struggling.

So, instead, I'll split the photos into a few categories and spread them out over the next couple or few days.

I'll start with shorter boards. In my opinion, the waves during the festival week were more suited to shorter boards, although there was some amazing longboarding happening anyway. A timed barrel contest probably would have been better than a timed noseriding event, this year, though.

No matter which boards were ridden, the common factor was speed. The waves were fast, so if you didn't go fast also, you didn't have a chance of making the waves.

byron again

It got pretty busy around here (Noosa) with the festival on in March. And with being on the road in New Zealand for the last month, I haven't had a good opportunity to update much on here.

In the last post I was about to leave for byron, so here are some photos from that trip. It didn't end up being exactly like I thought it would be, but it was still really fun. I met plenty of new people who were on their way up to Noosa, where I got to hang out with them a bit more.

The next post will have some photos from the festival week.

Until then, I hope you enjoy these ones.

We're headed back down to byron bay tomorrow for a few days.

One last little road trip in australia before coming back to noosa for the longboard festival, then to NZ for a month.

I got way behind and pretty much haven't posted any recent photos on here. I'll either mostly wait, and post a lot of them at the end, or just pick up with things that are happening in the present, and go back to everything else later... we'll see.

Until then, here are a few photos from our last trip to byron in december. I'm pretty sure that this trip coming up should be pretty amazing.
