Mountain Biking and Flashing

With studying lighting at school I thought I should take my new found knowledge into the field. A friend, John Harbord, has been kind enough to volunteer his skills on a mountainbike. We took the show up to Oxford Falls in Sydney’s Northern Beaches area. Also met up with another friend, Josh a BMXer, at the nearby Freedom Jumps. The following is a few of the shots.

Easter Weekend

Easter Weekend

Bondi Bowl, Sydney

Had a great weekend over Easter. Spent my Saturday at the Five Dock jam. It was a great day with some very impressive riding, huge airs and a great atmosphere. On the Easter Sunday and Monday I spent my afternoons down at the Bondi bowl shooting skating. I had never really spent any time there before as it’s a reasonable length of trip to get there from here and I figured the scene there was as weak as it is here. Sunday afternoons down there are great though and the scene is very much alive and kicking.  The bowl is a great shape and size and the park is not over-run by kids on scooters. As you can see in the shots below the spectacle attracts quite a crowd who all gather round to watch. I am looking forward to heading back down there this coming Sunday and shooting a heap more shots. Continue reading →

Five Dock

Five Dock

Jake, Five Dock, Sydney

I caught wind of a BMX jam going on this Saturday at the not-so-local Five Dock skate park. There was also a visit to Hell on Wheels in Newtown by then Triplesix Distribution team who are on a roadtrip. I missed the meet in the shop but caught up with some of the riders as they came to Five Dock for a sunset session. The guys hit the park bigtime with super smooth runs and big airs. They will be hanging around for the competition on Saturday. If the level of riding that I saw this evening is anything to go by it should be a great day on Saturday. I will definitely be getting myself over there and shooting plenty on the day. Continue reading →

Dirt Sessions

Dirt Sessions

Dirt Sessions, Sydney, Australia

Finally managed to link up with some guys hitting the dirt jumps on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and had a great day shooting with them. They had a bit of a jam session and invited me along to get a few shots. Around 30 people turned up at different stages throughout the day and a lot of riding done. Many thanks to Josh for giving me the heads up and thanks to all who were there and kind enough to let me shoot. Cheers guys. Continue reading →
