Video of me! other side of the lens...

My mate Aaron Bartlett who films for MTB-CUT and did the FootOutFlatOut films got a new camera yesterday, and rather than sit in his room and read the manual, he came out and filmed me riding, bit weird being on the other side of the lens, but proves i also can ride bikes, not just shoot them...

Luke Ball Web Edit and photos...

I had a few days where i didnt have anything going on before i get busy shooting videos/photos/races etc for a month or so non stop, so gave my mate Luke Balla call and asked if he was up for a shoot, after the last one that did pretty well getting on every major MTB site in the world pretty much, after another 6 months of riding, lots of new gear etc, i thought i would go and film him on his home tracks, the ones he knows like the back of his hand, and it shows i think!

Shot like every video i do on a Nikon D90, 80-200,50 1.8, and 15mm fish eye, editing in vegas.

With all the videos i do for Dirt and other people, i am restricted as to where i can put them, and by putting one magazines logos on them, others arnt so keen to link them up, so its good to do some personal work like this every now and again where i have full control from start to finish.

Also shot a few photos through out the day, here they are, colour/BW versions on my flick stream here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/9381585@N02/

My few days with Josh Bryceland

For those of you who dont know Josh"rat boy,miami,bryce" bryceland is ex junior world champ, world cup pro and team mate with steve peat and greg minnar so a bit of a big name...

Last month i went up and stayed with him for 3 days at his place filming a day (or 3) in the life of video for dirt.

I had caught him on a rest week so was pretty chilled just messing about and having fun, seeing his mates,something that with his hektic lifestyle he doesnt get to do to much...and something he misses im sure. first shoot with a DH racer ive done where we didnt go anywhere near a dh track, so no photos of him shreding turns. but im sure i will get another chance ;)

So i just hung out with him and his mates, and filmed it all and got some great images from it all.

Mission done by all accounts i feel...

2 Photos and the Dirt vid, for more photos wait till i know whats happening to them, or keep an eye on the next dirt.

ps: blog posts galore over the next week or 2 so keep it locked!

This morning i packed up all my gear hoping to go out and try out some more "out there" angles...When i got there everyone was building and not riding, light was shit and i just wasnt feeling taking photos... so we got cracking and knocked out this and cleared another 50 meters of track, the rool in has taken the club tank/ledgend chaz about 10 hours already... Tavi woodlands is getting good!

Martial Arts Clothing promo shots

A mate of mine runs and is the trainer at a local Martial arts/fight club.

Well they just got a new set of hoodys and tee shirts made up and needed some promo shots doing to show them off.

Not something i shoot i lot of but im really happy with the results and will jump at the chance of doing something like this again.

I was told "some sporty shots and urban gritty shots, all high contrast and hard"

so this is what i shot, click to see the full images, to wide for the blog:

Josh Bryceland Shoot

Was up staying with Josh Bryceland the UCI junior world champ for a few days at the start of this week filming for another "day in the life" video for dirt.

The footage is all hillarious and will make a funny and entertaining video, will set about editing it in the next week...

Photos are still in the stage of holding back the best ones for magazines etc and will get some up as soon as i can.

Anyway shot a few quickfire questions with him for WideOpen while i was there, heres that video... more on the main dirt vid and photos soon.
