2017 Turns All Year

I didn’t ride everyday but I did ride every month and every month theres something pretty all time to do, thanks to all the friends who did this with me.

Hunt For The Powder People

New Zealand will always be home, even if I don’t call it home day to day so having the chance to get back and hang out with family and friends but also sneak in our fair share of days on the hill.

Last Tracks

For longer than I should probably admit I’ve been working on this piece, when I moved down to Queenstown we had a real good collection of vinyl, another year later I started messing around with 3 axis gimbals and then finally this spring we got some of the snow shots to start editing it up, I had to get Alex Bowater’s help on it as well but it’s something I’m happy with.

Ben was the one that came up with the name, basing it on this being the last track of Ray Charles, Yes Indeed album and the last days of spring, this was filmed literally the last full day I had in New Zealand but what better way to spend it than shredding the old stomping grounds.

Manual #58 – Winter 2015

The new issue of one of my favourite mags just dropped and I’m happy to have this shot of Ben Comber in the Good Times, Bad Times article working the after season at Treble Cone with a miller flip, this was the kind of thing I really wanted to shoot a lot more last year. Looking through the NZ coverage there were so many shots of international pros coming down under and working things that were cool but not absolutely crazy in a way the NZ riders could do but just didn’t.

Volcom PBRJ

For a decidedly white day it was a rather fun and mellow comp and for my first time working with Volcom a good chance to get a little more weird on the logo animation.

Pipes

Really happy to see this shot of Ben Comber’s pipe ride in print. It’s not the biggest trick out there but it’s a cool spot that I think a lot of people have looked at but I don’t know if it’s been hit before, as is a little obvious there’s not a lot of snow around it but sometimes you have to make the most of a lower snow. Check it out in the new issue of CHILL Adventures mag out now.

Simple Laps

I’ve been cutting away on this clip for Ben from across the ocean. The internet opens up nice little options like being able to quickly and easily help someone out like this to do the editing on a piece of footage that you wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to film.
