Shot October 2006: I had a bunch of expired film from my old boss in Chicago so I was shooting as much of it as I could. I believe this was the Shakey’s pool in LA and Brian Martin was always down to ride pools with Dean an Kurt. At that time I was in Huntington and riding with those guys as much as we could, weekends and nights. Brian was a private investigator and later moved to Hawaii.

If I had to guess this was Ilford 400 film on a Canon 1N body triggered with Pocket Wizard cables. Since this was 2006 I had probably eaten a tuna sandwich from the nearest 7-11 within minutes of this photo being taken.

Golden Dawn Mixtape

Some quick Chocolate Truck crew action to hold you over before their 2nd DVD drops. Loved the first one.

We’ve written down 100 random questions and assorted topics, all of which are unbeknownst to our victims. We will be asking people to pick 20 random numbers from 1-100 and then supplying them with those questions/topics to answer. Who knows what might come up!?!?!

Up next, young gun Mark Burnett out of the Sunday Bikes / Shadow Conspiracy camps. Straight outta Albany. NY.

Mornings At Grant : Brian Kachinsky


Mornings at grant_14

It’s no secret that Chicago got a new skatepark in the heart of the city at Grant Park. Dew Tour invaded it a month or so ago and I’m sure there will be more jams and contests held there in the future. My work schedule leaves me to mainly be getting in some early morning sessions and I have been meeting up with some of the dudes here in the city to get some morning coffee and bmx in before we start our normal day.  I felt this would be a great place to share some photos for an ongoing pseudo series that I’ve been shooting with some of the dudes here in the city, some known and some unknown.

Q&A: Eisa Bakos / Endless Mag

Eisa Bakos, endless mag, bmx

Endless Mag sprung up out of nowhere in the wake of Ride UK’s print demise. It seemed like support was instant for the new venture. While the first issue is still yet to come out, Eisa has been busy on the road keeping the Endless Instagram active, dropping features on the site and presumably gathering content for issue 1.

I hit up Eisa Bakos to throw some questions his way regarding Endless. Click below!

Whenever I get a text or call from a rider coming through the L.A. area looking to shoot I make it a priority to link up and see what comes of it. I don’t always have a plan for photos, and it isn’t necessarily a priority to figure that out beforehand either. I have been fortunate enough to make some solid connections along the way over the years and that allows me the freedom to shoot and figure the details out later. I have also grown to love just letting things happen organically. I’ve worked in print long enough now to appreciate just going out to shoot and enjoying that experience for what it is and not always focusing on the end result. That is what happened in this case with Travis Collier. I met Travis years ago when I first moved to California and I’ve always appreciated him as a pro rider as well as an artist/designer. He’s played an important role in the flatland community and has offered his own style and take on riding for as long as I’ve known of him. We set out to meet up, shoot a few flicks and catch up for a bit as he was only passing through town on a trip. Here he is caught mid steamroller varial on the streets of Hollywood. This photo to me is a simple reminder that it is sometimes better to leave the plan at home and just see where you end up.
