All Day Apparel – Skate Sessions w/ Z Roy

I’m currently working on 6 video installments for All Day Apparel featuring skateboarders. The first one to drop went live on Karmalooptv.com today and it features Z Roy skating and talking a little bit about what fashion means to him. You can also watch it on my vimeo page. Stay tuned for the next one featuring Mike Crook!

In keeping with the Fashion Theme, another video I worked on with Chris Wardle dropped today for Shop Girls in Queen West. This was the third installment in a series of videos we did to promote the uniqueness of the in-store experience at their shop. It’s a super rad little place with awesome clothing for women, if you’re shopping for summer in Toronto you have to pop in and let the girls take you on a shopping experience like no other! Check the video out below.

I’ve been swamped lately so I’m sorry for the lack of updates lately, but I’ve got lots of exciting stuff coming up over the course of the next few weeks so stay tuned and I’ll try my best to keep the content flowing in!

Ambush Apparel BTS Video – SS12 Collection

I’m always anxious to see the final edit when I work on a project with Chris Wardle and this shoot for the SS12 Collection for Ambush Apparel was no exception. Check the video out below, and click here to check out Ambush Apparel.

CBMK with Phil & Z Roy

It was through skateboarding that I first got into still photography, so I was stoked when I got a call from Phil asking if I wanted to go shoot with him at CBMK last week. Z Roy came along as well and we pretty much had the whole park to ourselves for the night. I haven’t been to this park in about 4 years, but not much has changed, and it’s still one of my favourite winter spots in the GTA.

Z Roy with an Ollie from the Upper Flat into the Mini-Half

Z Roy with...I guess a Nosegrind up, 5-0 down?

Phil with a lofty switch kickflip

B-Roll Weapon of Choice...$5 from an antique store and it has a hot shoe!

Z Roy again, with the 50mm instead of the 15mm

My favourite photo from the night, cropped square so it's Instagram-ready 😉

I also decided to warm up the motor drive and try out a couple sequences. Z Roy’s finished up a bit sketchy, as every other attempt I’d had to duck under his board flying out of the mini-half…so I was a little uneasy…but I assure you it was a land.

You already know.

Sometimes 1 frame just isn't enough.

...or one angle...

It felt really good to get back to my roots and shoot some quality skateboarding with old friends, I’m really looking forward to skating street in the coming months!
