sorry for the lack of updates, kinda working on some stuff here. in the meantime, enjoy this out-of-focus shot of a double line that Andi and Timmy did. also, i photoshopped cats in there. because cat you, thats why.
sometimes it is really hard to decide between shooting a sequence, shooting a still or just staying at home and playing video games.
well, i guess here i should have done all of the above. Luki Krobath did a fs lipslide, but he popped from the upper table, across this channel-gap-thingy. which is quite a lot tougher than you would expect from the picture at first.
see, i found the perfect solution. magazines, take notes here! also, there is joel in the background. hello joel!
so, there is this magical rail, high up in the hills of Graz. every single one that sees a video or a photo of that spot is like “dude, so small, looks perfect, i am gonna try XXX on that one!”
well, then you arrive there. downhill, rough as all hell, basically everything that can be wrong. look at those faces. fun fact: you have to “drop in” 4 m above the rail, if you push, you die because you get way too fast. when (if) you land a trick, you have mach 4 anyway. i somehow dont manage to transfer that onto the picture though.
those handsome fellas were innocent bystanders at the recent skatecontest in town.
they were obviously important and successful business men, which explains their fine garments and of course justifies them complaining about all the people there looking like bums and losers.
Julian is quite the person that you would want to shoot with. he doesnt care about “do that again, i am not happy with the angle” or “your face looks ugly, do it again” or “i forgot how to take photos, do it again”. he just does it again.
here he is testing the rail while i run around like an idiot trying to find an interesting angle.
Flip didnt enter the contest. he just skated around for fun. or, as one of the best actors ever would say “flip dont contest” (if you can add the original quote in the comments, you win eternal happiness, my right to go on with your life and a high five)
since Flip isnt skating Grünanger too much, he was surprised to find this ledge. IT IS JUST SO WELL HIDDEN. he was stoked on the secret spot he found. Continue reading “flips contest side.”
man kann es glauben oder nicht: ich kann auch auf deutsch schreiben. und das passiert jetzt. but dont get used to it.
Der Freedom / Blue Tomato Greenanger Contest fand dieses Wochenende statt. Ich war einer der gefühlt 12000 Fotografen, also hatte ich keinen Druck. Ich bin unglaublich talentiert mit Namen, also falls ich jemanden falsch benannt hab oder kein Name genannt wird, bitte schickt eure brennenden mit Kacke gefüllten Tüten an HC Strache, der is nämlich schuld.
Dieses Wiener Kid fuhr besser als er in diesem Alter sollte. Nachdem der nollie inward heelflip nicht wollte war die Frustration trotzdem zu groß. Als Fotograf natürlich gefundenes Fressen.
part 2 of the series “i liked where i sat and didnt care about another angle and rearranging the flashes and my back hurts and kids of today dont have any manners and how they are dressing is annoying me and why does it always rain except when it doesnt because then it is too hot and why are there so many mean people and …..”
