Beans - Hardflip

This wasn't a land, he was on it a good few times but the board kept shooting out from under him.
There's also some light leak on the top right corner. To the untrained eye you probably wouldn't notice, i do, and it does my tits in. It happened again this weekend so i need to get one of my film back re-sealed.
Oh the joy of shooting on film.



Beans came into the shop last week, he's looking well. Pop in again soon, it was good to see you.

Danny Jack

After a few months down under, Focus team rider Danny Jack has returned to Sunny Scotland. He's been out skating pretty much everyday when he's not working, filming or shooting photos. I think Zander has been filming for The Harmony's next project. Should be sick to see a full section from Danny again.

I shot this just before he left.

Frontside Noseslide



Been out filming with him too, check out the epic Switch Tail footy




Oh yeah.

Crazy Dave

I shot these two photos on the first day of collage. They were taken on a Pentax K1000, i didn't have my own camera yet so i got used to using that for a few months. It's a dope camera.



I didn't know what to expect from my classmates but there were a couple of characters for sure. It was only a small class, i think maybe 10 students? It was a small photography department so we all spent a lot of time together. Dave was by far and is by far one of the weirdest dudes i've ever met. I remember one night while skating at the park (Livi) I heard someone shouting from the other side, i looked up and saw it was Dave. I skated over to see what was up, he was a little drunk and was shouting "Graham, you're a human being!" Then he went on to say that you could put some funky multi coloured lights in the big bowl and shoot some crazy photos.
Another time at collage he was convinced that the FBI or 'Feds' were after him and they were trying to get into his locker. he showed me where they had drilled a hole in the padlock. I'm pretty sure that wasn't the case, but he was adamant it was them!



Regardless of the silly stories, Dave was awesome. I also think he was way ahead of his time, i mean look at that hipster outfit, it's even shot all out of focus and shit!

Blur

I shot this just before Christmas. The security at this spot is the worst, I managed to talk the guy into giving me five minutes hence the shite lighting. Also looks like Daniel has no legs.
I got the film back and noticed there was a blur in the middle of the shot. I pretty much shat myself as i thought i had scratched my fisheye, turns out it only needed a clean.



I think everyone has seen Daniel do this already, so it's just ended up on the blog.

Look at that face, looks like this guy
