A little while ago nemo participated in our friend Thor of SeeSee Motorcycles’ colaboration with Bell and various artist’s around the portland area. The helmets turned out amazing and the show was awesome. Check out our studio shots of all 21 helmets and the behind the scenes with the artists, video by Jess Gibson.
All on Hell For Leather
We can easily say Sarah Burke was one of the sweetest, down to earth, chill girls we have met in the industry. Spending days on end shooting with her was a pleasure indeed. It makes our stomach’s turn and our hearts drop to think that a woman that amazing and talented has been taken from us so early in life. You can read more about her injuries and what caused her death at USA Today Sports.
You will always be remembered Sarah!
Much love and our warmest feelings go out to her family.
You can go to the give forward site where you can make a donation to help Sarah’s family pay for the medical care she received over the past couple weeks.
What do you think of when someone says Portland Oregon. Well, thanks to the popular show Portlandia you are probably dead on with any Portlandia influenced image that comes to mind…but when you are here in Portland there are 3 things for certain….1. you cannot walk a Portland block without (literally) running into a designer 2. 99.9% of the people you talk to will be heavily over caffeinated and have a tattoo 3. You will become privy to at least 5 art shows you should visit, within in your first 15 mins here.
So in the true spirit of Portland Oregon, Jason Sturgill, the mastermind behind Art is Forever created a nice sandwich comprised of art, designers, the Portland art museum and tattoos. Thanks to my cellmate here at nemo, Jess Gibson, we have some visual stimulation, in the form of video of this tasty design nerd sandwich.

Damn girl! Cute, sweet and ripping. You have it all in our book!
Keep up the amazing riding in 2012!

Congrats crew, job well done.
Just as we begin posting the uplifting story of Kevin’s recovery from his serious injury 2 years ago. Sarah Burke sustains a serious head injury at the same half pipe location, while also training for the Olympics. Our well wishes are with the beautiful young star and her family. You can read more about her injury at powdermag.
His story continues to inspire us all. Read more here.
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 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”!!!
This is really really rad!
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.
For all you shredders out there that think helmets aren’t cool….you might change your mind after this.
Seriously crazy riding on Travis’ part, conan cracks us up!
The first email to pop up in my box this morning was from the amazingly talented Mr. Letchworth. This is his awesome new site.
A special thanks to Sandra Hillen for making the video with me…that girl has so many skills!
And of course an extra big thanks to Josh Letchworth for agreeing to make a how to video with us!
As a Nikon shooter myself I am not as up to date with the canon equipment as i should be. However this new body is one that shooters, both Nikon and canon will appreciate. The action sports photo world will never be the same with this baby on the market! This new body is an action shooter’s dream, with features like 12/14 fps shooting and built in Ethernet cable!!!

Its a snowboard boot people! That’s right, in this day and age there is no reason, unless you have baby feet like me, to not have a pair of fashionable and functional snow boots for shredding the gnar. With Nike Snow’s constantly upgraded Zoom boots, and now the new Burton x Red Wing ‘Rover’ boot you have fashionable options!
With a visually appealing layout for those creatives who want to know what the different functions of your camera actually do. Seriously, take the camera off auto and make the photo your own. Check more out at Living In The Stills.
So true, so awesome. Check it out.
You know how they say, “behind every great man is a great woman”? Something similar can be said about skateboarders only it would go something like this: behind every great skateboarder is a great photographer and/or Filmer. If a trick were to happen and no one were there to photograph or film it in order for you to see it, did it really happen? You ever heard that other cliche, “I’ll believe it when I see it”? I think a skateboarder made that up. Think about everything you’ve seen and were inspired by in skateboarding and I’ll bet you most of it has been through the invention of photography or filmmaking. Throughout the evolution of skateboarding there has always been the photographer and/or filmer right there by the skateboarders side ensuring that whatever happened it would be documented for the world to see. This segment is as simple as it sounds. Shoot All Skaters with legendary photographer J. Grant Brittain. Enjoy. — sb
PHOTO NERDS UNITE!
Looks like the campers are enjoying the late snow up at Mt hood for session one of the summer camp for snowboarders!
Cant wait till we get up there for the photo workshop this year. It should be awesome!
There are a few blogs i like to browse with my coffee in the morning, one in particular inspires me every morning, Design Sponge, there was a certain house under the sneak peek section that caught my eye last week. I didn’t have much time to read into it since my dog was pushing her head under my laptop and whining to go for a walk. But this morning i decided to check out the details of this fabulous place. As i began reading it became immediately apparent, this was Nemo’s friend Greg of clutch camera and Antler&Co! I love seeing the amazing creativity in the homes of those you work with on a daily.
Greg we love you and your insane ability to build cabins and make amazing art out of your homes! Oh and for supplying us with top notch service and photo equipment from Clutch!
With that said, check out Antler&Co for amazing wall hangings and if you are ever in the Portland area and need some rental gear, Clutch Camera is the place to contact! (Justin and Greg will never let you down!)
Ok, ok i know, I’m a day late here but what can i say…it was go skateboarding day yesterday and the temperatures here in PDX hit a whopping 80! So out we went sweating our way down the streets of PDX. So in honor of the amazing talent of skateboarding heres a little overview of a project we did with converse a little bit ago.
The launch of Converse skater Rune Glifberg’s signature shoe “The Allston” was intended to both introduce Converse Skateboarding to the masses and make it unmistakably clear that Converse Skateboarding and Rune stood for originality and creative disruption. Nemo was briefed to create a scalable campaign, with skate-authenticity being paramount.Nemo collaborated with Converse Skateboarding to develop an inventive, visually arresting campaign that would speak to both core skaters and a mainstream audience. “Seeing is Believing” is what resulted. Combining both new technology with 3D cameras and old technology of dazzle camouflage (utilized in WWI to confuse German U-Boat commanders), we were able to create a totally new visual environment to experience Rune’s awesome lines. These videos coincided with a 3D print campaign published in core skate magazines and thousands of mailers, again, speaking to both core and mainstream audiences. The campaign culminated with a Converse 3D take-over of The Skateboarder Mag and a huge presence at the Summer X Games. Rune even earned the cover of Skateboarder that month.With the help of Nemo’s expertise, and an introduction like that, Converse Skateboarding was welcomed to the skate community with open arms.
