Proud to present….

Here at Studio Nemo we are proud, proud, proud to present the work we’ve been doing over the summer months. I travelled with an amazing crew of Nemo, Nike and Selby folks to NYC, New Jersey, Duluth, Tahiti, Florida and Georgia to capture this year’s Nike 6.0 apparel campaign on film. Todd Selby has incredible style and was great at getting Nike 6.0’s athletes to take us deeper into their everyday lives. Thank you to everyone who was involved. Check out The Selby and his post about the shoots. It’s amazing- Videos, interviews and photos from all the athletes.

Nike 6.0 at StudioNemo Round 4

We were extremely happy to welcome the 6.0 athletes Nigel Sylvester, Ben Horan and Trevor Jacob back into the studio the other day to shoot some stuff for Nike 6.0. And Josh Letchworth was back again ready for action. Thank you everyone for another great shoot and for sweating it out.

Ben Horan- a cinderella story

Na huh?

So Ben Horan is this amazing wakeskater on the Nike 6.0 team. He is from Nahunta, GA. Just say it one more time….hear it start rollin’ off your tongue like a real southern boy. So, what do you call a “cinderella story” if it’s a guy? Just doesn’t sound right like that. Anyways…for lack of better words, thats the deal with Ben. He was picked up by a sheer matter of fortunate circumstances that put him and his abilities in front of the right people. I couldn’t wish for it to happen to anyone better. The kid is the most down-to-earth person you will come across, humbled by his peers and supported by the limbs of his distinct family tree.
I had the chance to spend a few days up in home town with him just doing what he does. That experience really put all the pieces together for me. It was clear to see why Ben is who he is. We made cheeseburgers with his mom, winched a rail on his neighbors farm lake, skated his satellite dish in the driveway, played with his turtle “shredder” and hung out at the DQ. I am sure there are 100 kids in other similar small towns doing nearly the same thing. Ok, so maybe not quite as good. Did i mention that his sister drives the winch for him? Well, yes she does. Thats pretty cool. Thanks for the hospitality
Ben, I’ll be back.
