PHOTOGALLERY: BRIAN BARNHART / 2019

Here is a roundup of some favorite photos from 2019.  They include shots from a visit home to Catty Woods; a trip to Orcas Island; a road trip to Tahoe, Utah, and Boise shooting new projects and helping with the build at Woodward Park City for Alpine Bike Parks; scenes from here in the PNW; and probably my favorite thing to shoot – Swampfest, which I had published in Victory Journal, Issue 17: “Outliers” (2019).  I also just released a zine called Groundbreaker commemorating the two Portland trail spots that were plowed. The original print run of 100 copies sold very quickly.  I’m currently feeling out doing a second print run for those who missed out.  Also hoping to build a new trail spot this year, and hence have some trails to shoot!

BEHIND THE PHOTO: BOB SCERBO

I’m always looking for ways to keep shooting BMX interesting. After 20 years of pointing various kinds of cameras at essentially the same thing, it can become frustrating in a way. I think that is the main reason I tend to enjoy only taking pictures of things that people can do a few times in a row, so I can experiment a little. The idea of catching a split second in time where someone is really risking their life does not appeal to me, I leave that to the professionals. 

I envisioned this picture to look somewhat like this, but when I looked at the LCD after I was ecstatic. It looked strange and almost made me uncomfortable, it’s really just a fish eye shot of Steven Hamilton’s head.  Somehow you can still see the take off and the landing and tell it’s a wallride. I also am a true believer that the subject is always the most important detail of a photograph and I don’t think there is any denying at this point in time that Steven is an icon in our little corner of the world. He has been on the scene for a long time with ups and downs and somehow managed to come out motivated and still loving the act of riding. I spent 5 days at his house this summer and couldn’t help but be motivated by it. I think all those factors are what make this image so important to me, it captured an energy and that is always the goal when taking a picture.
