Summer Vehicle

In the summer my town can get so packed at times the best form of transportation is a skateboard. With tons of careless drivers who will run you off the road on your bike or back up into you, the skateboard give you much greater response time to weave in between the idiots. This is a board my buddy "Gorn" left with me before he passed. Keeping up the tradition of skating out to the bar or check the waves on the regular. This was shot while skating up to check the waves at the pier.

This random DOG

Looking back through tons of nothing on my hard-drive I came across this image which stood out to me. This was shot at 1010 a historic spot for a group of friends in the Side of "O". Takes place in Ca where and when I pulled up I noticed this dog straight up chillen Solo and as content as he could be, he appeared. Just a nice time of day with good light

Dirty Jerzy Never has Waves

So People always ask, "Really you can surf in New Jersey". The answer is No!!, you can't but we can. Stay home and never come here, someone will talk shit to you and will drop in on you probably within the same day. This is the Garden State of people who keep it real, booze it up and stay right. This image was shot with my G (9). It felt nice to swim around in garbage during the north east days but when it decided to go offshore it sure as hell cleaned up its act and started to look like beautiful summer.

Vin Mo fo Sho

Vin Mo fo Sho

This is a portrait of a homie of mine for quite some time now. He has trouble sitting still like a lot of people that I chill with. Straight up Vin Mo has nothing to prove to anyone. If he wants to skate full time and make $ he sure as shit could, but Vinny always says I got nothing to prove to anyone. You can check out his very old skate part on you tube. You should all know this is like 5 years old. www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFx5mUGyad0

Red Rocks Sunrise

It was very early in the morning as we drove through the corner of the Red Rocks in Utah when we pulled the car over to wait for the sun to peak through. Patience is very important even though I don't have any. So thanks to the driver at the moment for making sure we didn't let a sick spot go to waste. This was done on our drive through the night to the Grand Canyon.

The Scenic Downhill

Jeremy my buddy who took the drive with me, got off the plane with 2 back packs and a longboard skateboard in search for a dope hill to charge down. On our way to Lake Tahoe we came across this road which doesn't get many drivers on it, perfect for nice cruise down the mountain into sunset.

Yellowstone Hike through Bear Country

Our first hike through Yellowstone started off sketchy and only continued to get sketchier. With Jeremy creating noise and always on the lookout as we hiked pass bear caves into the thick brush and constantly hearing noises became extremely common and after a few hours of being followed around and eyed up by Bison the size of some cars, it was now time for the sun to go down and start freaking out will begin. As we made it back to the highway we had 2 Bison charge towards us. At that moment I knew it was time to bounce out and start to continue with the rest of the journey to our next location.

Next Stop Yellowstone National Park

With 15 hours of driving ahead of us after leaving Yosemite Nation Park we are on our way driving off into sunset in search of Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. With good planning and staying on our schedule we got into a few of the spots where I wanted to shoot in time for good light. Drive during high noon and be posted up shooting at sunset and or sunrise.

Self Portrait in a storm while climbing Yosemite Falls

Yosemite is such a amazing place. After leaving Mammoth and going to my place in Tahoe for a good night sleep it was time to head out to Yosemite for 2 nights of camping and hiking for soaking in the sites. 8 miles of hiking later and it was time for some beers and sleep. Left Yosemite and got back to my place in Tahoe, packed up the remaining of what I had left then bounced to go see some friends on our straight drive to Yellowstone, Wyoming.
