Skateboarding and Photos
Yes I am still here… and it is time to update the site. I was looking at skateboarding sites and looking at the photos that they had up. I went to the skateboard warehouse and was looking at the new flip skateboard. It is awesome. It is a quattro deck and measures 8″ wide. It is a great board and it is a versatile deck that is ready for anything that you throw at it including vert, pool, street and just cruising. It also comes pre-drilled for you to install your trucks and you wheels.
I had to try this out so I picked up this board and tried it out and I have to say it was a great board. I was not disappointed with it. I took some pictures of it and I would love to take some more photos of it hope to see some people using it and I did.
So I was out photographing some girls on this board. The women that were using it told me that they loved it. One even told me that it was so light it was like skating on air. It was used in the pool and on the vert and nobody had any complaints about it. The only thing that the women did not like about it was the colors that it came in. If I remember correctly it was in green and blue and the design is not that great it just says “flip”. It is boring at best and yes I agree it is a mediocre look/graphic design. The board does hold up though and the women would buy it if they needed a board. BTW on the left is a picture of Sam and she is using the Filp board and it has independent trucks with spitfire wheels and bones bearings. The picture on the right is of Joy and she is also using the Flip board and with it she has slime balls wheels with spitfire bearings. The trucks she is using are stage 11 t-hanger trucks (and yes i know their boards are filled with stickers so you really cannot see the bottom of the board).
Not The Only One
So I was out photographing and saw a fellow photographer out shooting some images for a site he was working for. His name is Jeff and is a great commercial photographer coming in from New York. I had not see him for some time and went to go talk to him. He has had some world renown photographs of commercial buildings through out the country from St. Louis to Seattle. Most of is work has been featured in Time magazine and https://www.scientificamerican.com. He told me that he was working for a new company doing pictures for a yoga knowledge site and on the same site, yoga clothes. He was working at http://yogaworkout.online and he was photographing 3 women in a newer type of leggings that I had never seen before. Asked him what he was up to and told me about his work and also asked me if I was interested in some work. I said of course and with that he told me he was going to be doing some work for Major League Baseball. He asked me to come on board so guess what I am going to be working for the MLB!
