My Week in Utah with Nikita Outerwear Team.

I’ll give ya the quick and dirty, this was one of my more favorite freelance photo shoots to date, It may have been due to the surprising openness of everyone involved to G.S.D. no matter what! All the girls were awesome and open to suggestion and copped zero attitude, I know some male riders that are more high maintenance to deal with compared to any of these girls. Ha. Nikita has a solid group of riders, killing it from the pow, park, pipe, streets and their focused. Special props go to Nikita office crew that absolutely killed everything from buying large amounts of avocados and string cheese daily to keep the small army shredding to putting a roof over our heads. I like to think I came out of this trip with everything I set to accomplish and like 20+ new friends I can’t wait to run into in the near future. Well enough rambling… go to Yobeat to get the full scoop as told by Brooke Geery! Make sure to check All the pics and DAILY video coverage! Click here.

Thanks Nikita!


Word for the day…

Von Iva by Plain T

I just came home from the Von Iva show at Doug Fir, and this sunday night show was fire! Those three girls put on an amazingly energetic show and the crowd was no let down! Keyboardist Rebecca Kupersmith was really stoked on the poster i did for the show (props for Nemo!) and once that trio got on stage is was loud, fast and personal. Kelly was throwing her drums and Jillian was unbuttoning my flannel and flashing the fans! The Portland crowd roared and the girls came out for one more song after they finished their set, the show was ferocious.

 

 


Sam Kuhn’s Lion Attack!!!!


When I met Sam a few years ago my first impression was this kid is gonna kill it, since then, he hasn’t stopped impressing. His amazing work ethic, creative drive, positive attitude, knowledge of equipment and straight up talent set him far apart from his peers. His ever expanding client list already consists of the likes of Nike 6.0, Snowboarder Magazine, Transworld Snowboarding, Community Transit, Avalara, Dellacio Collection, Imperial Motion, Stevens Pass, Bonfire, Ir77, Slow Runner, Roxy, your’s truly, Nemo Design and get this…he’s only 20!!!

Just about now you should stop feeling old and unaccomplished…instead, check out his motion picture collective Lion Attack. Keep it up Sam!

Winter X Games 13 – Mark Kohlman

Congrats goes out to our boy Shaun White and his back to back victories at the X Games. Studionemo alumni Mark Kohlman was a contracted gun to cover the event for ESPN. Pictured here in the essence of a still image telling a stroy. Sarah Burke took home the gold for the third time in the pipe. Burke is the first female to successfully land a 720, 900 and 1080 in competition. 

 

Mark has always taken the path less taken when it comes to photography. At the X Games there are plenty of shots form the obvious angles. Always the craftsman, Mark searchs for that shot that stops you in your tracks! 


Coolest Commercial Ever!!!

A Glass Half Full Productions  Cadbury’s somewhat mythical production company has created an ingenious piece of work. Enjoy!


Danielle Levitt at Nemo

Save the date! This show is going to be amazing. Powerhouse books has just published Danielle Levitt’s book We Are Experienced that takes an inside look at the teenagers of today. She is going to be gracing Portland and studio nemo with her presence. Don’t miss it!


Photographer/videographer of the day Autumn de Wilde

Sometimes, I feel like I’m in the seven degrees of Autumn de Wilde. She seems to know so many people that I do and people say, “you should meet  Autumn,” but alas, our paths never cross. Never-the-less, I love her work and am inspired by her creativity. Though I love her photography, I wanted to share a video she recently did of the Raconteurs where she filled the forest with 8ft mirrors to create a truly surreal world.

“This photo changed my life” -Trevor Graves

Trevor came in this morning with this classic Grant Brittian print of Chris Miller. Immediately it caught my eye, I went over to TG and asked what was up with the shot. “This photo changed my life.” is what he says to me. ” You know when you draw an image over and over? It’s like an album cover you really like or something, I must have drawn this image over 100 times.”  I was a bit stunned staring at this photo while listening to TG go on like like a schoolgirl about this photo. This image inspired Trevor graves to pick up a camera, which in turn TG created images that inspired a myriad of shred photogs to do the same (raises hand). It kind of blew my mind for a split second knowing that if Grant never took this photo or if TG never saw this, I and many other photographers may not be doing what we’re doing now. Which makes me realize that inspiring creativity is much more rewarding than dollars and cents, make sense? Heavy stuff, right? Go check out Grants site, see if you can catch the inspiration bug yourself.


The Gap Narrows…

The difference between the cinematographer and the photographer has narrowed even more. Photographer Richard Walch, traditionally a photographer who had never shot a movie, took out the EOS 5D Mark II to test drive its HD video capabilities at the annual freestyle.ch Zürich. He loved it. 

One of the positive aspects of this transition that photographers are taking is the foresight to think about shooting stills in a narrative style. They are finding a way to tell a story better, whether in fashion or advertising.

Walch sees another plus, Richard explains: “For me the camera changed the way I work over night. When I presented the video ‘D-Style’ to a client I instantly got a job for a photo and video production for the car company Infiniti taking place in Paris. ”

Clients see the benefit of doubling up and finding a consistent storytelling style. Check out his video here

About Writing on the Wall
The four-man crew of Garrett Reynolds, Dennis Enarson, Nigel Sylvester, and Mike Spinner spent over a year living out of suitcases to film the first Nike 6.0 BMX movie, Writing on the Wall. From 4-wheelin’ to 4-star, ditches to public parks, the 6.0 crew scoured the corners of the Earth to discover the undiscovered and lay down new lines. Battling school calendars, narcolepsy, ridiculous competition schedules, and border patrol; the crew rallied to capture amazing riding. Writing on the Wall showcases the distinct style of each rider, from Nigel’s street skills to Spinner’s technical prowess; from Dennis who rides anything at any time to Garrett’s assault on cities around the world. The 6.0 crew represents the next generation of riders driving the progression of BMX. Enjoy the tour, as one of today’s most diverse BMX teams travels to Beijing, Dubai, Barcelona, NYC, Australia, and more.

Backyard Bang in Portland,OR


Backyard Bang Rail Jam- 2008 from Austin Will on Vimeo.

Photos, video and words by Austin Will.

Salomon and Bonfire went for gold this year for their second annual Backyard Bang Rail Jam. Teaming up with the Art Institute of Portland gave them prime location in the heart of the Pearl District in Portland, Oregon. 30 some odd competitors climbed the scaffolding time and time again to impress the celebrity Judges, Josh Dirksen, Nick Dirks, and Tim Windells. Sadly, only a handful could make it to the end of the rail, another handful couldn’t even make it down the initial slope without face-planting, which gave announcer Jesse Burtner a lot to talk about. Granted one can’t expect to much from an amateur rail jam in the middle of the city, the riders who made it to the finals stood out miles ahead of the rest. Between hanging in the VIP Free Beer section and the judges booth, I heard some notable honorable mentions. Jarad Hadi was granted most consistent. Alex “Wildcard” Burton was noted as the most Hazardous Material, and best trick on the wall-jam. Tyler Verigan easily took the best trick with a first try 180 switch nose press. A bum danced his way into a VIP pass courtesy of Salomon. Austin Sweeten received first place by doing 180 wizard switch up swivel variations on everything. There were some great bails, good tricks, and over all it was a fun time with amazing friends and fantastic beer. Cant wait for next year. Click ahead for some photos.
