Chase Gouin’s Ride UK interview was the most involved BMX interview I’ve ever done. The irony is we shot all the photos for it in about two hours at a Metro Jam in Toronto, Canada. The interview took much, much longer. Chase is pretty meticulous, a bit obsessive, and also one of the most important bike riders of all time. The effort was worth it.
I have a design background, so most of the time when I’m shooting I think from a designers standpoint, about layout, typography, etc. I had the vision of an opener, text at the bottom, title in the top right, when I shot this, and that’s pretty much what happened when I sent the shots to the magazine, without me even suggesting it. I reposted the whole interview on my site last year if you’re interested. [link]
