Imprint Project – London

The traveling photo gallery known as the Imprint project (Through Quintin & Breaks Mag) comes to London this week, and features work from the following:

Walter Peringer
Walter Peringer is a photographer based in Austin, TX. He has completed commercial and editorial assignments on six continents and in more than two dozen countries across the globe. His BMX photographs can be seen
in Ride Uk.

George Marshall
George Marshall is a London based freelance photographer and associate editor of The Albion BMX magazine. In 2006 he graduated with a masters in photography from the University of Nottingham and as an undergraduate exchange student he studied photography at the University of California, Santa Barbara, USA. George is definitely one of those photographers with The Eye: he gets in there, figures out the shot, takes care of it, and it always comes out a treat.

Ricky Adam
Ricky Adam likes to shoot photos. His current employment at Dig BMX requires him to shoot photos of BMX, but he takes his photography much further beyond the realm of technically accurate BMX riding to capture the reality of life.

Jeff Zielinski
Finding the best new spot to ride for the most epic tricks to be photographed, lies Jeff Z. Part human navigational system and part photographic visionary, he is the go to guy if you want to shoot some polished BMX photos. You can call him obsessive, crazy, over-prepared, or just call him the Associate Editor/Photo Editor at Ride BMX.

Edwin Delarosa
Edwin DeLarosa is a professional BMX rider turned photographer who has uninhibited eye for the streets. His images capture the life around him and the energy of NYC

Opening Info

31st January (RSVP Essential)

Exposure Gallery
22-23 Little Portland Street

Edwin De La Rosa: 2012

Will Stroud’s Favorite Video Parts

Will Stroud has been putting in work behind a video camera for many years now. He’s a staple in our scene and an absolute professional. I know because I’ve dealt with him first hand. He even provided me with direct links to each video part for this feature for crying out loud. Professional.

Anyway, instead of picking Will’s brain about video cameras and videography, I decided to find out what some of his all time favorite BMX videos & video parts are from a fan/viewer standpoint.
