Top photos:

BSD

 

Shot on the way back from California with the BSD crew during the filming for "Any Which Way" last January. Shot with a panoramic camera.

Coste

 

Taken while shooting for Vans Off The Wall with fashion photographer Dimitiri Coste at Las Bardenas desert in Spain this summer. Shot with a Canon 5d mk2 and 70-200 lens.

Miller

 

During an ad campaign for Carhartt I shot this photo of Mike Miller in Spain at Euro camp. We played around with smoke to try and get something different from the usual skatepark photos. Shot with a Canon 5d mk2, three flashes and a lot of smoke.

New York City

 

Just a snap in the streets of NYC with three good friends, Kalkoff, Valentino and Dandois, and nice light. Shot with a Canon 5d mk2.

Pool

 

I shot this for a Soul cover and tried a different angle with Max Bonfil. Taken in Algorta, Spain, and shot with the Canon 5d mk 2.
