You know you truly love doing something if you’re willing to get up early, stay up late, spend tons of money, and keep trying at it after countless failures. I began dusting myself off and trying again with BMX over 20 years ago, and photography followed shortly after.
When you boil them down, they’re inherently the same – you have a tool that you can operate by yourself, and once you learn how to use it, you can manipulate it and ap-ply your own style to it. I’ve always considered myself to be extremely lucky to turn the marriage of my two labors of love into what I do everyday for a living.
The staff position I’ve held at RideBMX magazine for the last 15 years has enabled me to travel the world, meet countless amazing people, and photograph a lot of in-credible BMX riding. The constant demands and unpredictability of the day-to-day grind of a BMX photographer has forced me to continuously hone my skills and con-stantly refine my style as a photographer and prepare me for any situation or subject matter.
