The long trip to Euro Bike

Sorry I havent updated this for a week or so, I would say I have a good excuse, but I dont, just been to busy going out and seeing my mates.

And was going to be going out for a big weekend when I realised everyone else doing what im doing is either out in the USA at the WC finals, or out in Germany at EuroBike.

So I made a few calls, sent a few emails and got myself all booked up on the next flights out here.

Working for for the week as there 5 strong team of people covering the event, so keep it locked to PB for updates from everything Euro and Bike related.

Anyway few photos from the party camera on the way over...

and a few nice landscapes from the last BDS in Wales...

New 2010 Portfolio

Just Earlyer today put the final touches to my new 2010 Portfolio of work.

Even though we are only part way through 2010, this is the time people start thinking about finding people for the 2011 season, so had to get it out there now...

Rather than a simple web gallery I put together a PDF book and uploaded it to ISSU

You can read it online, or download the PDF file from there and read it on your PC, Iphone etc

Take a look and let me know what you think, look forward to hearing from you.

Ideas for posts ??? + a few shots from Gawton

Right a bit of a 2 in 1 post here, im looking for suggestions for an almost regular blog post, like tech stuff, gear stuff, photo of the week etc etc

Comment bellow of email me with any ideas you have...

Now the second part of this post

Had a rare saturday off yesterday, so my mate and fucking pinner Adam Price who rides for long term client of mine Juice Lubes came down to practice at Gawton and stay at mine before racing today...

I just went down the woods for a few hours before going off in to plym and shooting a promo vid for local bmx shop and got a few photos of him.

Pretty happy with the berm shot, all Natural light, on the 80-200 2.8.

New published work..

A month or so ago I got an email from a ncie chap at Mpora.

The long and short of it was they wanted a photo to run in Dirt as part of the new Mpora Add campaign...

We went back and forth with ideas of the image to use, prices etc and then a month later, I get Dirt through my door, open it up and BAM! looking good!

The shot is of Berny Kerr from the shoot I did with him back in Jan for the Dirt Day in the Life video... so nice to see it get used somewhere...

Few more smaller bits in the issue aswell from BDS 3:

Warehouseexpress Blog

After most of the BDS series rounds this year Ive dont a short article for Warehouseexpress's blog, Im working through a list of topics through the season and the one from Molfre is about a few tips on how to not piss people off at a bike race...

Have a read.

Raceface promo edit

If you follow this thing with any diligence, you will have seen the straitline and cane creek promo edits I did as part of the mythic work I've done this season...

Anyway final and in my personal opinion best one yet, for Raceface.

Filmed in 1 day in and around the Lakes on lots of secret tracks, edited in a matter of hours, I love it.

Anyway enjoy, its on PB,mpora,youtube and vimeo...
