A week ago or so I had a few of my photos featured up on the Kinkbmx.com website. I had been sitting on some of these photos for a possible interview with Chad Osburn but decided to let em go instead.
Stoked on finding a killer deal on a decent condition Hasselblad 500 c/m, this will be my go to camera from now on.
Chrome and black, leather, beautiful bright focusing screen, and a super awesome shutter “clunk” this camera is so much fun to use.
I will be plenty of photos up on here from now on, keep checking in.
This shot was taken about a week or two ago, this was our second time back to this spot to shoot this trick. The first shot was good but the lighting didn’t do it for me, plus I had received some tips from Jeff Z (Associate Editor @ Transworld RIDEbmx Magazine) for a change of angle and back light. Anyways, after taking this all into consideration, about three weeks or so later Olson and I were at the same spot again, and here is what we got. Hope you enjoy!
Go to my Flickr page to see some other photos from that night, some of which are not all posted yet.
If you go over to fresnobmx.com, I did a little bike check with a good friend Ryan Olson. The photos were taken in downtown Fresno Ca, deep in the hood, it was a little scary with all my camera gear and our bikes out there. Needles to say we got it done, and in record time!
Got back my first roll of film back from Horn Photo my local camera supply shop. Anyway’s I was just nervous buying an old camera (Honeywell Pentax Spotmatic 35mm SLR) and not knowing if the timing is close at all to normal or if the shutter is slow or sticky. Needles to say the roll came out awesome!
I had been looking for a cheep 35mm SLR for some time, finally found the one and got a crazy deal on it. cant wait to shoot through my first roll of film with it (shooting Kodak TMAX100 B/W) and take all over, only wish I had room for a darkroom at the casa.
Should be posting some shots with it soon!
I am a newbie contributor on RideBmx.com, so come go by every now and then and check my video selections.
This had been on the back burner for some time now with Fat Tony ( RideBmx.com’s former online editor ) who had mentioned adding me as a contributor to Ride after helping me out with a job on my WordPress site (Fresnobmx.com). But Fat was super busy and had no time to give me the run down and get me set up to contribute, not to mention that more than a month or so later I found out he was resigning from Ride Bmx. After Fat Tony resigned, I noticed the Ride Bmx site looking like it needed some help, so I turned to no other than Ride Bmx’s super talented journalist/photographer Jeff Z. I figured since I have been keeping in touch with Z for some time, plus the fact that I assured him that I knew WordPress. Z was happy to add me to the team. After Z gave me some guidelines to follow and some “how to” email lessons I was set, the rest is history.
I am proud to help support a website for such an influential magazine as Ride Bmx, one I have been reading since I was a kid. Hope my two cents helps to keep a few more people pumped on the site and hopefully supporting the magazine.
Support bmx and your local scene!
Also “FYI” I’m also going to start working on a small Fresno, Ca scene report for Dig Bmx online with some articles and photos, keep an eye out for that soon!
