Will here popped up a year ago and brought power to the Zurich skate scene. He's loud. He's proud. A good sport. Good humored. There should be more of South Africa in our city. There should be more of South Africa in the world. Especially of the kind we lost today.
One more down the road. Back from Sicily shooting for Vans. Back from an other skate trip where I only got one single shot for my personal folder. Don't need more. Great country. Great people. Incredible food. And in general an intensely productive trip.
Completing work on our last odyssey. Last night. Last pictures. First night where we'd know where to sleep. Relief. Singing, Chanting, Horrible voices. Great laughter. Great friendship. This one sums it up best. Livio. Igor. Bella.
Those and the Weirdo
Working on band pictures and album artwork. New to me. Friends make me do stuff. Those and the weirdo. Weirdo friends. Trusting me in something I've never done before. That's actually nice. Thank you.
Completed a book for Safari Clothing. Collecting, scanning and editing work of ten different photographers. 120 pages. Partially mine. Ten years of Skateboarding for the Safari Clothing company. More than that. An important chunk of Zurich's urban culture. Friends and inspiration. You want a copy? Write me a mail and we'll send you one.
Back from Tour. Warriors. Can't get any better then ten days on a road with no plan. Seven cities. Plenty of action shots. Plenty of pictures of unique moments. And here and there an option to shoot a character you can not cast. Pero. One of 13.
Back home. In between Tours. Office days. A book is on its way. The next being sorted out. So are all the unused scans. Some get dumped. Some raise memories. Good memories. Unexpected. Like these. One of the best. Thomas. Ca. 2006. Analog dirt.
Simple et sec
Hey. Need a picture for my CV. Got your camera here? Sure. Can we do it? Five Minutes? Sure. Keep it simple. Keep it straight. One Flash. One Window. White Walls.
A corner. Full of puppets. Lousy light. Lousy conditions. And zero space to move the puppets. Couldn't be better... Just squeeze those DJs in between and hit the fader. Cheers Ruben. Cheers Claudio. And thanks Jane for letting us into Manor's deco-storage-space.
Squeezing in. Shooting pictures for WeSC Switzerland. DJ Acee is their newest Protégé. Slowly adapting to new fields. Lucky me. She knew more about posing then I did. Even luckier. The wind decided to gust in from the side every once in a while.
Spin my hype machine!
