Scrapbook 2013 – Harrison Boyce

harrison_boyce_photography_main

It’s crazy that 2013 is already behind us and as the year comes to an end I always have fun looking back at my photos over the past twelve months. I was able to do some pretty incredible stuff over the past year and see some pretty incredible places and I can’t wait to see where this year takes me. To kick 2014 off I put together a collection of photos from last year shot on various cameras. I really felt like I spent a lot of time thinking about my photography, trying to figure out what type of photographer I am and hopefully that translated into my work. Out of everything I did, I still enjoy roaming around the streets on my own with my point and shoot snapping photos of all the random stuff that catches my eye.

Q&A – Vincent Perraud / Portfolio 2013

I always enjoy Vince Perraud’s photos, which is why I’m psyched to have received his newsprint 2013 portfolio that he put together (those are my feet up there). He’s covered Simple Session for us, provided an Autophoto plus more… He’s a regular around here.

Seeing as I was stoked to receive this piece of newsprinted awesomeness, I decided to ask him some questions about it. Click below for that interview.

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 is the man behind the classic Deadline video (and other sweet shit), Tony Ennis.

Photogallery: Beat Ass

Here are some awesome photos courtesy of Korey Kryder from the FBM/Lords of Fun/Beat Ass adventures. Loooooving the feel of these. Good ‘ol film.

We’ll be premiering the Beat Ass travelogue here on Friday, so be sure to check back.

Click below to eyeball the photos. Please note, I would normally post these in our normal gallery, but the format of the pics would be annoying to view on smaller screens.

Texas Toast Jam by Brandon Means

Another Texas Toast Jam has come and gone, and what a sweet time it was. Considering the amount of rain we received the week prior (the dirt jumps were literally flooded), I’d say the whole thing ended marvelously. It was great seeing people from around the world descend upon Austin for the jam once again.

Brandon Means was in town for Toast (ice to finally meet you bud) , and he graciously contributed a bunch of pics from the weekend. Click below to check them out.

Photogallery: Defgrip on UP

Jeff Icepick Mackinac

So, about a month ago, I put together a trip for some of us midwest guys: Jeff K, T.J. Henderson, Rob Diquattro, Ryan Wayne, Nick Wilbat, Anthony Loconte and myself to head out on a four day adventure to camp around Lake Michigan. We didn’t go into the trip thinking it would be 100% riding and I don’t think any of us wanted or needed that anyway.

Poler helped us get outfitted with some camping gear, as pretty much none of us were experienced campers and most of us had little to no camping experience. As with any trip nothing goes exactly as planned and time constraints didn’t’ allow us to get in everything we wanted and we definitely didn’t get to ride as much street as we would have liked, but that didn’t keep anyone down. We all had a blast and laughed the entire trip, especially from all of Rob’s antics and newly acquired front brake skills on a bike nearly half the size of his own.

Click below to scope out some snaps from the trip and be on the look out for a trip edit to drop later this week filmed by Anthony Loconte.

I’m happy to present you with the 4th installment in our “VS.” series.

The idea for this series is basically to do an ongoing interview of sorts, where the previous interviewee goes on to interview someone of their choosing. Previously, Jay Roe interviewed Joe Rich, and now Joe has chosen to interview Empire’s Tom Williams.
