Any time I get an email from Devon Denham, I get stoked. Mostly because he usually sends through a sample of photos for me to check out that are always super on point. This time around he had more than just photos to check out! First off, Devon has just redone his portfolio website, DevonDenham.com had been completely re-designed and loaded up with a bunch of his latest work. Then Devon also included a link to his latest edit called “For the Photographers” where you can check out Devon putting in work in front of the camera! You can check out the edit along with a selection of his latest photos for this fresh photogallery for you guys to check out. Get a look at 19 fresh shots featuring the likes of Garrett Reeves, Greg Henry, Alfredo Mancuso, Cory Foust, Dylan Stark, Mike Gray and Brandon Begin along with a couple rad landscape shots! So check out the photogallery and edit by hitting the link below, then head over to his site to get a look at even more of his work!
Intro: Kurt Hohberger
Words and Photos: Cody York
There’s no denying that one of the biggest things pushing the growth of BMX is the exposure of it online through web videos. Years ago, it was pretty difficult to produce an edit. Filming on tapes, capturing each clip, editing and then finding a hosting site to upload the video to was always a bitch. Who remembers having to actually download the video to your computer before you could watch it?
Over time, technology has progressed amazing with cameras and computers which has made it a whole lot easier for people to film, edit and distribute their videos for everyone to see. One brand in particular, GoPro has been simplifying things and making it affordable for everyone to get their riding filmed and put out on the internet for everyone to see.
A few months back, GoPro released their latest version of their camera, the Hero 3, which produces some high definition footage at frame rates that can look like it was filmed on a high end camera if done right.
Cody York recently got his hands on one of the new Hero 3′s and decided to put together a quick write up of why he’s stoked on the camera. Check out a few more photos and words along with a few videos that give you a look at the quality!
Typically when I shoot photos these days it’s for a specific purpose. Either for a print project, an ESPN feature, something for my column, something for an ad, catalog or anything else a company might need photos for etc. In some cases though I have shot photos over the years that never end up going anywhere but my hard drive. Typically it’s just that they become leftovers and aren’t needed at the moment. Other reasons include riders changing sponsors. For example, if you shoot a rider that is wearing a pair of Etnies and then they get sponsored by Vans you can’t really do anything with the photo of them wearing the Etnies anymore. It sucks but that’s just how it works. Either way though, that is why I love doing this column because I have complete creative control meaning that I get to finally give some of these photos a home and give them a bit of shine-time.
Well, another year has come and gone and this years Frostbike is done until next winter. This year definitely brought a good number of new products to check out from all the brands which was nice. There’s definitely that chance that not much has changed since Interbike in September, so the trip up this year was more than worth it. I’ve gone through all the photos from all the booths and posted them up for you to check out now. Below you can find links to each booth! Give it all a look.
I’d like to give a shout out to all the brands who had people at their booths to give me the low down on all the latest and greatest from each brand. I’d also like to thank QBMX for letting me come in and check everything out! Until next year!
The final stop at Frostbike. Here’s a quick look at what FBM had on display this past weekend. They had a fairly small setup, but as always, some quality made in America goodness like their Berzerker frame. Let’s take a look!
Keeping the party going… I rolled on over to the Stolen booth to see what was new with David Wootten and to check out what they had on display. They’ve got a few fresh items for you to check out, so let’s get into this!
I made my way over to the Tree Bicycle Co. booth to see what Sam was up to and to take a look at what he had on display. As always, Sam brings plenty of unique and well designed products to the table, so let’s get a closer look!
Next up we’ve got the Odyssey booth. This year they had Nuno Oliveira and their new sales guy, Michael, manning the booth. As always, Odyssey has some fresh products brewing and they even had a few unseen items to check out. So let’s get into this already!
Making the rounds, I stopped by the Fly Bikes booth to say what’s up to U.S team manager, John Povah, and take a look at what they had on display. Fly have always done an amazing job to focus on quality and aesthetics of things, so it’s always a treat looking at their stuff in person. They’ve got a few changes for 2013 as well, so let’s take a look!
