No words. Except FUCKING AWESOME!!!!!!!
S/O to the DIGGEST crew. More HERE.
Someone like James is bound to have videos/video parts that they cherish from their years in BMX, so I got in touch with him to find out what they are and to hear what he had to say about each.
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 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 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.
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 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

It should be clear by now that we’re fans of Edwin De La Rosa around here. With that said, our boy hooked up a handful of photos that he shot throughout 2012 for a gallery. These photos play out like a cruise through New York with other various moments sprinkled in. Thanks Ed!

Quintin has released five tee shirts featuring the photographs of the five guys featured in the Quintin / Defgrip Imprint Project shows.

Thanks Edwin DeLarosa, George Marshall, Jeff Z, Walter Pieringer, Ricky Adam, Quintin, DTA, and everyone who came and drank Tecates!

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.
Click below to check that out.
Anytime there's some new Edwin stuff, I automatically want to see it. He is one of my favorite riders, no questions asked. His style and approach to street riding is one to be admired, but hopefully I don't have to tell you that. He is as important to street riding as pegs are.
Needless to say, this interview seems way overdue, but the timing couldn't feel better for me.
