Nike Vision Vintage Collection

Back in December, a few of our Nemoites, along with fun-loving photographerEmbry Rucker, took a little trip down to sunny San Diego to enjoy bikes, beaches and bonfires to create the new campaign for Nike Vision’s Vintage sunglass collection. Needless to say the rest of us in the offices were stoked to see the photos, and not so stoked to see that they scored amazing weather in December. Anyways, the Vintage website just launched, and the images and video look awesome. Head over to Nike Vision to get yourself amped on summer.


Nike 6.0 Presents: Leave A Message- A Women’s Surf Film

People can get pretty defensive in the argument of women vs men in sports, but let me assure you, women’s surfing has come a long way. Nike 6.0’s team of female surfers are not only showing up most of the boys, but they seem to be completely re-writing the present and future of women’s surfing. Here at Nemo, we’ve been traveling with, photographing, art directing and supporting most of these girls since the start of 6.0- Kari Rowe was recently down in Mex with Monyca Byrne-Wickey shooting for Sweet Cheeks (big sale at Roozt.com right now!)- and we couldn’t be prouder of the release of their new flick, Leave A Message. Featuring Malia, Lakey, Monyca, Carissa, Coco, and Laura, 6.0’s first legit surf film premieres May 19 in Los Angeles, and will be available for download May 24!

Trevor’s Birthday

Yesterday at nemo we celebrated TG’s Birthday. For Mark Lewman‘s birthday TG decided to hire a Bret Michaels impressionist to serenade him. Mark Lewman vowed he would get him back. So he hired “a walk on the wild side” to bring in an 80lbs albino python. They hid it in the bathroom and told Trevor the pipes burst. He goes running down there to document the destruction. But he found more than water!


Photo Grom Turned Photo Master

Cole Barash. The name that represents the aspiration of many photo groms today was a wide eyed photo grom himself not too long ago. Over the past years his hard work, dedication and mad skills have shot him to the height of snow photo fame!
Check out the interview with Mr. Barash himself in this months Steez Mag and take a trip down memory lane with our own Trevor Graves.

the softer side of shooting ft. Chloe Aftel

As the new year begins, the fresh talent is pouring in. One thing I couldn’t help but notice while perusing through the portfolios, would be the number of amazing female photographers. As of recently the female to male ration has been heavily weighing towards the XX chromosome and it couldn’t be more beautiful.

A great example of a talented, lovely and inspiring female shooter is Chloe Aftel. Always sending new and amazing eye candy our way, she has just updated her site and will not disappoint.

To all the lovely lady shooters out there, we say keep killing it. More XX shooters in the posts to come.


The Birth of Big Air

THE BIRTH OF BIG AIR

Nemo Design presents The Birth of Big Air, a 60-minute documentary film featuring BMX legend Mat Hoffman in his pursuit to go higher on a bicycle than anyone ever thought possible. The Birth of Big Air chronicles Hoffman’s influence on BMX: the physical and emotional strains of riding at his level, and how he continued to question conventional thinking, ultimately leading him to set a World Record.

Our special guest, Mat Hoffman, will join us for the event. Nemo’s creative director Mark Lewman is a longtime friend of Hoffman. Together, Lewman and Hoffman executive produced The Birth of Big Air for Dickhouse Entertainment with Jeff Tremaine, Spike Jonze, and Johnny Knoxville.

How Many Dreams in the Dark? My life on the road with the legends of snowboarding. by chris brunkhart

That’s quite the lengthy title but it suits the length and depth of his career. The other day i received word that Chris Brunkhart has made his goal of raising 5,000 dollars to publish his book.

“I have been photographing for over 25 years. Starting my career at a newspaper in Chicago and eventually found my home in Portland. Around 1991 I got involved in snowboarding in its infancy. Becoming a senior photographer for Snowboarder and Transworld magazines, I shot with Craig Kelly, Jamie Lynn Terje Haakonsen and Matt Donahue and host of others from all around the world.

I have seen 6 continents, finding the beauty not only in the mountains but in the people I’ve met, the cities I’ve visited and the culture I’ve encountered. I helped found The Movement Snowboards and Frequency magazine. In 1996 I published “The Creedle Chronicles” with Volcom, and 3 years later released the cult snowboard movie, “The Walrus Dreams.” Currently working on my book, “How Many Dreams In the Dark?” to be released this fall, and continuing to shoot near my home in Sandpoint, Idaho.”

The book is going to print in 3 weeks so keep an eye out and get yourself a piece of snowboard history. In the meantime check out Transworld Snowboarding’s interview with him.

Studio Nemo Got a New Intern! Meet Jordan Lutes.

Heres a quick interview I conducted digitally with the young and talented Jordan Lutes who happens to be sitting in his posturepedic computering chair about 4 ft to my right…aaah technology. George Orwell called it….who needs to speak when we can just i chat!

But the story is, I snatched up this young man from Cali the day he graduated from Cal Poly and managed to sweet talk him into moving up north to continuously clean up the whirlwind of mess that is left behind as we power through shoot after shoot. He’s been here a few short weeks and I already don’t know what i ever did without him. *shout out to Jordan’s parents….he’s killing it.

So Jordan, first things first, have you ever buried anything?

No. What a creepy question.

Really nothing at all? Weird, i bury stuff all the time.

Really?

Of course, i thought everyone did! Ok here’s one every guy has a messed up answer to…Best fireworks story?

Two years ago I was in Pamplona, Spain for the running of the bulls. We figured the festival was small, and were completely overwhelmed when we got off the bus into a chaotic town. We’d had a pretty shit trip so far: no surf, rain everyday, missed our train from Paris, and no word from our contact in Spain. But just as we’d pretty much given up, a giant bang goes off, and an insane fireworks show starts shooting out of the town moat right next to us. The Spanish weren’t too impressed, but we were stoked, it ended up being a crazy night.

*side note: a kid got gored by a bull the day after we ran.

See i called it! Messed up!!!! Wait you actually ran?!

That’s a long story consisting of bulls, booze, no sleep, cops and combat boots. We’ll save that story for a later date.

I can’t wait to hear…next question. What moment in history would you want to shoot, and why?

Can I say dinosaurs? Put me in one of those jeeps from Jurassic park and I’d be happy.

Well, then this question seems to pale in comparison to dinosaurs and Jurassic Park: but who are your favorite photographers and why?

Anyone that can really capture youth in motion. Dewey Nicks and Embry Rucker were the first guys to really get me inspired and amped to get into surf lifestyle, they could really make it all look like a paradise. Neil Krug nails the whole expired film thing. Same goes for Ryan Tatar, dude can tell a story with a single Polaroid better than anyone else. Steve Sherman and Jack English’s black and white portraits were iconic to me- there’s a shot of Donovan that I’ve had taped to my wall since before I could surf.

I concur, all amazing lensmen. Now, on to a more pressing question what’s more important, wind or lettuce?

My two worst enemies. But I guess no wind equals no waves.

Excellent deduction my young friend “All I need are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and I’m fine.”! Finally the greatest question of them all, how did you learn about Nemo?

Originally from the credits in Afterbang back in like 2002. Eight years later, I’m getting ready to graduate from Cal Poly and saw a piece in PDN about Nemo. Noticed they were shooting a lot of stuff that I liked for a lot of clients that I liked. So I sent Kari Rowe an email, just to see what the studio was all about. A few weeks later I picked up a 5mm hooded wetsuit and got up to Portland to be the new photo intern.

Thanks for the info Jordan! Welcome to Nemo!

I will be waiting for the running of the bulls story!

RJ SHAUGHNESSY PHOTOGRAPHY

When more than one person emails me the same link in a period of 4 hours, my interest will surely be sparked and i may decided to take the time to check it out. In this instance I will lower my head and sheepishly admit, the thing that sparked my interest was the second of two short emails containing this guy’s link, that read and i quote,

this stuff is radical. plus there are boobs. enjoy Kari.

Now, let me tell you. That email was right. His stuff is radical and yes there are boobs.

So to quote my dear emailer,
enjoy.

Hello Jake Stangel.

I had the lovely opportunity to meet with this talented and driven young man last week. Unfortunately for me, his stories stuck more readily in my scattered brain than his pictures…so now, a week later i have a hot minute to peruse his website and it only took seconds to recalled a few of my favorite shots. One of his stories is set on a farm in central flordia where he worked for room and board. In his free time he snapped off these wonderful shots. Keep up the great work Jake!

Check out his website where he has written the stories that correspond with each photo collection.


Hannah Teter and Her Very Sweet Cheeks

We here at nemo love helping others and we love snowboarding…so naturally we love the one and only Hannah Teter. A gold metalist and olympic snowboarder, life time shredder and younger sister to two amazing snowboarders and one sweet talkin’ rep. She really stands out as one amazing young woman.

She has started numerous foundations to raise money for those in need including selling maple syrup and other products online at Hannah’s Gold to provide water to a village in Kenya, sold underwear online to support Doctors Without Borders, and had a Ben & Jerry’s flavor named after her, with proceeds going to charity. She’s raised over $250,000 for Kirindon and at least 40% of all net proceeds from the sale of her Sweet Cheeks panties line is given to charity partner Children International to help feed and nourish children living in extreme poverty.

With a little bit of help from her big bro and friends Hannah has officially launched the Sweet Cheeks Website!! She is joined in the cause by her close friend and fellow shredder Gabi Viteri! With more lovely ladies of the action world sure to be joining the young Miss Teter’s panties with a purpose the gallery is sure to be stuffed with more beautiful babes with big hearts!

As if this wasn’t enough this beautiful young philanthropist is nominated for VH1’s do something award. Join online and giver her a vote!

These Austrians have drank waaaay too much Redbull!

article-1265891-09214629000005DC-398_964x517

Really?! you people are insane! According to the Daily Mail:

“A skydiver has pulled off an astonishing stunt by climbing out of a glider’s cockpit, crawling along the wing and then somersaulting underneath and stepping onto the wing of a second glider flying below.

Paul Steiner then moves back onto the main fuselage of the second glider while the first glider turns upside down and flies overhead so that he can reach up and hold the tail fin at 100mph, forming a human link between the two aircraft. He then leaps off and parachutes back to the ground.

The spectacular stunt, captured on YouTube, was carried out by the Red Bull skydive team 2,100 metres above the mountains in Styria, Austria. And they look mightily relieved as they returned to their airfield.”
