Clearing the Fog
It’s not that I’ve been too busy to post stuff here, and it’s not that I’ve been slacking on it. Somewhere in between. Either way, it’s been too long. Allegedly blogging is dead anyway. Instagram, twitter, blah, blah, blah. Hands are full, having fun, working, etc. etc. I’ve shot some stuff the last few months… everything to the guys in Dinosaur Jr. to high-end custom road bikes to snowboard legends. A little BMX too. I’ve designed a few catalogs, did a bunch of logo projects, and did a ton of stuff for Yobeat.
The above shot of Ben Hucke is from one of the BMX shoots I did. This one was just for the heck of it in our parking lot… something loose I wanted to play with for a bit and never did. A couple years ago I bought a couple fog machines on clearance the day after Halloween. Finally, a few days prior to halloween this year, I finally got around to using it. Now that we have our own parking lot that we own (re: can’t get kicked out of for doing weird shit like this), I set up a giant black backdrop, brought out some flashes, and got the fog machine going. Flashing lights and fake smoke really confused the neighbors and local tweakers. The tailwhip shot of Ben above got used for a Diamond Back bikes ad. There’s an alternate angle from the shoot after the jump. There’s also a flatland shot probably my favorite of the night, of Matt St. Gelais.
