Future (or present) Fossils of Photography By Bughouse

Artists Jeff Klarin and Rebecca Johnson from Los Angeles design studio Bughouse have created some awesome sculptures which are individually hand-cast in cement and then color-stained to bring out the subtleties. Its funny that the title is Future Fossils, because as far as the world of photography in this new year of 2012 and the past 10 for that matter, the sculpted cameras are fossils of a photo generation past.

National Geographic Photo Contest Winners

National Geographic has announced the Winners of the 2011 Photo Contest. It always astounds us what photos they choose to be deemed the “best”. Photography is so objective everyone in the world has a different image they are drawn to. Us included. The two in the nature section that caught our attention best were just “honorable mentions”!!!

Kevin Pearce Will Ride Again!

I read this article in the NY Times about kevin getting on a snowboard again and my heart skipped a beat! This boy who was at the top of the snowboard bracket when i met him, and yet still one of the most humble and kind people in the industry, is now going to be stepping back on to a board as man who has overcome hardships many of us cant even imagine.

The new york times stated “For the first time since Pearce’s life-altering accident, he will strap on a snowboard and glide down a mountain. He plans to ride Tuesday afternoon at Breckenridge, Colo., surrounded by friends in the snowboarding community and anyone else who wants to tag along.”

Sending our positive energy your way Kev!

Nike Vision Winter Wear

I have to say that alot of the shoots we produce end up in our design department and i dont end up seeing the final results until they are in print of online. Its kind of exciting that way. To wait and see how our vision in the photo department corresponds with their design needs.

A recent example is the nike vision website. GO BOYS! Nice job with the shoot. The images look almost just as we directed and produced. We love it when that happens.

A special thanks to Adam Haynes,  Mark Thompson and Colin for modeling and riding. As well as  Tim Zimmerman and Bump Films for shooting.

Buzz Feed posted this article featuring some of the most powerful images of 2011. It is pretty insane to see all the disasters that have occurred this year! You can see the whole article here.

Bow The Mold: The stories behind their style- featuring Caleb Ruecker

This is the first instillation of what i hope will be many. Tasked with finding fashion forward thinkers in the action industry started with a mere fashion on the street type standard. But faced with the fact that i am no sartorialist, i cant just look at what a person is wearing and not try to figure out the personality behind the garb. I was determined to go deeper.

I began to rack my brain and think of all the athletes i have met and the individual flair they bring to their sponsors and style i couldn’t imagine just documenting what they wore. As far as i am concerned “Name Brands, overpriced items and the hottest new style on the market all pale in comparison to the style brought together by individuals and their personalities.

This monthly essay is one that will strive to capture the real, the raw and the individuals i meet in a new light. Any stereotypes you may have had when first meeting the individual will melt away, confusion will in sue and you will want nothing more than to meet the individual with these fashion forward frame of minds.

The first of these young trendsetters is Caleb Ruecker. A Portland native and a BMX athlete iconic for his personal style, infinite flare and talent for bedazzling even the most plain of nails.

You see him fly by on the street, hop a curb and spin off into the distance, your initial though? “What a Punk” A reaction he has received with a smile for years and happens to be the same reaction I had as he was flying on his bike over a crew of us nemo workers as we enjoyed an afternoon at the loading dock. Once the intimidation and pure awe of his personal style settled in, i got a hold of him, it only took 3 years.We collaborated and talked, gossiped and giggled (yes girls he giggles) talked nails and fashion. Seriously, not the rail ogling, bmx jabber i expected. This is where the shattering of stereotypes idea came into play. I wanted to make a series of fashion essays in which this person who normally appears intimidating and hard would come across calm, collected, complex and the soft man i spent the afternoon in the park. Not the spiked, tattooed, ruecker the hucker that the world knows him as.

To my excitement he agreed. This is the series we created in an afternoon here at studio nemo.

 

An extra special thank you to Caleb and Camille V for spending a saturday in the studio with me.
