I just came across this image I captured years ago. It lived on an old hard drive and wasn’t given a second thought. This shot is pretty different from how I shoot now but I wanted to share it here because like all photographs we make, it’s part of the process. I feel like I am a better photographer because of images like this one. Being able to self critique and see what did and didn’t work here. It’s a constant learning game and I’m sure I’ll share something another 5 years from now that I’m capturing in this present time and be able to express the same sentiment.
I feel like that’s part of the beauty of art; it keeps growing and if we put enough work in, so long as we’re doing it right, we do too.
The Austin X-Games are just around the corner.
I can’t decide what I’m most exited about shooting, big air, street, vert or park. Luckily it’s all there to enjoy.
Here at SXSW we had the amazing privilege of capturing Aaron “Jaws” Homoki do his thing. Not only is this guy amazing on the board, he does it all with a smile on his face. Even when Aaron bit it (which only happened quite seldom) he was smiling and laughing. It’s an amazing thing watching an athlete at this level truly seem to enjoy what he’s doing out there.
A big thanks to all the guys who came out to Rock the Lot for SXSW!
2014 is going to be a big year for Austin, TX with the X-Games coming.
This city is already hopping in anticipation.
