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!

Its that time of year again! When the sun starts to peak out, the rain slows and the snow starts to disappear….well most of the snow. Those of us who live in the great state of Oregon are lucky enough to have the glacier. That’s right, Timberline‘s own summer snowy play zone!
To make the summers up there even more amazing, there is High Cascade Snowboard Camp. A camp strategically nestled in a tiny mountain town a mere 10 min from the glacier; created for the active souls who just don’t want to stop riding even when its 73 and sunny. Every year they collaborate with Snowboard Photo Legend and founder of Nemo, Trevor Graves to form the most amazingly fun and educational snowboard photography class EVER!
This year anyone who comes to the photo camp will be schooled by the photo genius of Mr Andy Wright, Sir Tim Zimmerman, the lovely Christy Chaloux and the tiny wonder Kari Rowe! I have it on good authority that the people behind the class are on a mission to bring in some amazing guest speakers this year…snow photogs from around the world who are at the top of their game. You will leave this class with not only a better knowledge of your camera, and a new mind for business but a whole new network of contacts and riders to kick start your career.
Come join us August 5-10th and learn all your brain will let you about snowboard photography and how to kick a**!!!
See you this summer!!!
Here at StudioNemo we’ve been working on a top secret project for a few months, the Aries2010 book/time capsule. Nike Snowboarding commissioned Trevor to collaborate on the curation their “history of snowboarding” book/time capsule that was revealed at the opening for the Winter Olympics in Vancouver this last weekend. Artist Brian Elliot‘s time capsule looks incredible. Kari Rowe did an amazing job shooting the time capsule and everything else for the book. Trevor and Jay worked non stop curating and art directing. Here is a taste of what we’ve done behind the scenes….
Vancouver shop The Boardroom is hosting Aries 2010, helping to launch it alongside the 2010 Winter Olympics with events this past Saturday, 13 February 2010 and next Friday, 19 February 2010, which will both feature presentations by snowboarding legends Terry Kidwell, Dano Pendygrass, Ken Achenbach and Barrett Christy.

Nemo welcomes the Jeff Anderson Memorial show “I Am Snowboarding” to Portland! Over 500 friends came to view the art and listen to DJ JOELSKOOL and snowboard legends, Jamie Lynn’s band, Kandi Coded.
Snowboarding being the youngest of the core sports (surf, skate,snow) the maturation of the art has prgressed in this show to strat to play along side the older siblings. Mark Gonzales has grown from a pro skateboarder to being a contemporary artist. Snowboarding artist are getting there. Mike Parillo‘s sophistication with his strokes, Michael Jager has been part of the XBox brand building, and Kevin Zacher has branched out of snowboarding to having commercial success as a photographer. I look forward to where Ryno, Lenhardt and Haynes will take their craft.
Jeff”s be gone for 7 years now and many of the folks in the space never had the pleasure of meeting him. The early memorials of Jeff were with close family and friends. What is so interesting is how the positive energy of that groups love and sincere missing their friend has resonated for years and even into other countries. “Newsweek” writer Ken Auchincloss calls this “event grief,” in which “emotion is the glue that fastens people to an event played out in the papers or on television. Emotions of this sort hardly count as feelings at all; they’re a form of participation. They’re like screams at a pop concert, which don’t signify love or even admiration but just exuberance at being part of the show.” In our often-isolating society, joining others to mourn for a stranger helps people feel connected, part of a larger community and a simple reason for being.
There was a honest sense of community that resonated in the studio, in a small way, bonded the group, just for a few hours. Carpe diem.
Please Join us this Friday the 8th from 6-10 pm for the I AM SNOWBOARDING event. It is a benefit for the Jeff L. Anderson Memorial Fund and the Brothers Skate Park. LOTS of art and prizes. Art work by: Jeff Anderson, Trevor Graves, Mike Parillo, Jamie Lynn, Mark Gonzales, RYN o, Adam Haynes, Jeff Curtes, Ben Brough, Michael Jager, Danny Zapalac, Blotto, Shem Roose, Cheyenne Eliis, Jared Eberhardt and more

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.
Vbs has posted the second half of the brushie spot. Its awesome!
Our friends at Vice featured the one and only Jeff Brushie on their Powder & Rails series. The episodes are packed with pictures from Trevor’s history. There are two more episodes coming up next monday and tuesday so keep your eyes peeled, the next two promise even more entertainment.
Snowboarding legend Laura Hadar approached about the idea of showing some of the old work at here new high end boutique in Salt Lake City while we are on a photo shoot in Russia for Nike Snowboarding. Salt Lakes finest photog, Andy Wright showed up to share some stories and a beer.
If you remember a few weeks ago, Trevor Graves posted his thoughts about Canon’s new Powershot G10. I know I know, you can’t believe someone would ruin such a new camera blah blah. Before you get all in a twist about Trevor’s smash happy video again, remember we put the smashed cam up for auction? Well, it sold! We actually donated 100% of the proceeds directly to Boarding for Breast Cancer. We were surprised to even see people bidding on the thing, so we were blown away when 10 bids were placed. It topped out at $300.00. So here is to you anonymous bidder, you will receive your framed hunk of scrap art in a few days to remind you, you rule because you love boobs, and so do we!

Seoul-based Korean artist Ham Jin makes the tiny a spectacle, and spectacles a scream. “I want to make a spectacle that is invisible to the eye—which is a part of everyday life,” says the 30-year-old artist, who, since the age of twenty has made a living and a name for himself with miniscule clay sculptures defying humor and horror.
“The superficial” ran a piece that came across Jeff’s desk here at Nemo. There is a coming of age story in here. When I was at BIKINI magazine/ Ray Gun (1992) we photographed Alyssa Milano nude in the desert and it was a huge deal. She was a child actor trying to avoid the child actor syndrome and striped for the magazine. It was mild. Her mother was there and knew about the entire shoot and I even wondered if she staged the shoot. Janet Jackson, Lindsay Lohan have all signed deals with the devil to continue their careers. Here we have Hanna Montana aka Miley Cyrus needing to make the transition as well. This is how Hollywood does it people. Her audience is growing and it is sad but true. Jodi Foster made the leap from child star to Oscar winner based on her reputation as an incredible actress. She did it.
Annie Leibovitz issued the following statement to People: “I’m sorry that my portrait of Miley has been misinterpreted. Miley and I looked at fashion photographs together and we discussed the picture in that context before we shot it. The photograph is a simple, classic portrait, shot with very little makeup, and I think it is very beautiful.”
Apparently Disney, who owns Hannah Montana, was not aware of the photos until they appeared on Entertainment Tonight. You know how Disney cares about that wholesome image. They don’t want their young starlets flashing their goods until they’re good and insane. Right, Britney Spears? Now get that kitten out of your mouth. For the last time, putting hot fudge on it doesn’t make it food. You gotta use ketchup.
