Agenda 2012

I went to the Agenda trade show last week and snapped a few pics.  They always put on a good show and it’s great to see a lot of friends I don’t always get to hang out with.  Enjoy.

Hasselblad test shots

So I recently bought a Hasselblad H2D-22.  I’ve been wanting to move into medium format for some time now.  The quality of the pictures are overwhelmingly amazing and have a distinct look which I really enjoy.  I’m still adjusting and getting used to the feel compared to a DSLR, so far I’m really happy with the results.  The biggest change for me has been the timing, my Nikon is much faster on the draw so when shooting action I need to switch up my timing a bit.  Nonetheless I am extremely psyched and here are a few quick test shots that I took with my friend Aquil Braithwaite, it’s harder to notice because these are lo-res images but if you click the pics you can see the sharpness and clarity a bit more.  Enjoy!

Laguna Surf and Sport Demo

Go Skate Day 2012….on the Red Bull Bus!!

I have actually had to miss the last few Go Skateboarding Days because of this or that reasons, but I was beyond stoked to not miss out on the festivities this year.  Liberty and JSLV hooked it up and got a red bull bus to cart 30 or more of us out to the Venice Skatepark for the Go Skate Day event there.  I decided I wanted to pound a bunch of red bulls and see what happened, bad call.  Here’s some of the photos that I was able to snap whilst my heart was going a million miles a minute.
