West Coast trippin’

Tuesday, October 5th, 2010

Just booked some flights to head out to the US for a few weeks.

Friends of mine whom i have also done some promo shots for, the band ‘Esben and the Witch’ are on a whirlwind tour of the States as we speak in support of ‘Foals’ and i was lucky enough to be invited to cruise along for a little while.

So as well as traveling with them all the way upto Vancouver, Canada,  i shall be hitting up some buddies along the way to get a bit of skating done, firstly Stockwell who was featured in my last post, then upto SF for the Valo premiere and some good hangs with Carl Sturgess then i shall end the trip by grabbing shotgun with Erik Bailey back to his hometown of Boise, Idaho.

The below photo was shot in Brighton and was used for Esben’s promo to announce their signing to Matador Records,

So it’s been 4 months or so with no update or nothing….SLACK!

From now on this is gonna be updated daily, whether it be decent content or nonsense, iphone photos / film / or digi, whatever i see in the day that i find interesting could make it as my ‘photo of the day’, or it might be something from the archives, as lets face it, 4 months of nothing, even being a man of leisure, a shit tonne has taken place.

So for todays which may cross over as tomorrow as we are close to 12, is the good old Brighton pier, it never gets old. Shot almost a year ago on my diana with a 35mm back, completely out of focus and not exposed correctly, i still think it’s rather nice..

we have snow….!!!!! loads of it!

I saw photos from last year of brighton in the snow and it looked awesome, so ever since i moved i’ve been waiting for the day. Well it came and it was cold, very cold. Still the roomies and i fearced it and it was mega. I haven’t seen snow like it since i was in whistler in Canada some 12 years ago. I managed to get a few photos while everyone else got gnarly on geoffs skateboard deck. Check back for the touched up versions, as these have snow drops ALL over them, it was insane.

Previous to this we had also been getting some wicked sunsets, bunch of photos below…

Also the same week Sim warren was in town shooting a short about Brighton and its people, the link obviously being that they skate but its portraying a side to the individuals that people rarely see. It was all shot on sim’s new 7d and has come out really nice…

The DVD’s finally arrived and as its an absolute banger, making it even more of a pleasure to be distributing this fine peice of blading mastery! Customs and parcel force held their grubby mitts onto them for a week too long but they are being unleashed onto the Uk as we speak, so if you would like a copy, which i very much think you should, get on over to the kingdom online store or your local shop.

Below are a few photos (featured in the dvd, the last photo is a GIF so give it a clicky click) taken whilst i was hanging out with Lonnie and Brandon in LA and SF.
