A little while back I had the privilege of venturing up to the Oregon coast with some of the Burton crew to do a shoot for their Fall lookbook and the relaunch of BurtonGirls.com. Seeing as their new site just went live, I figured I would give you a preview of my day exploring the woods and the shore with team riders Gabi Viteri, Kimmy Fasani, and Hannah Teter. It is always cool working with Burton seeing as they are like family, but it was especially rad to do this shoot with an all girl crew from the talent, to the stylists, filmer, and producers. Be sure to check out the full lookbook here and click around the rest of the site to see what these lovely ladies have in store for you.

More photos and a video from the day after the jump.

Rhythm Photoshoot

The other week a friend of mine Gus Cawley, the US marketing manager over at Rhythm asked me if I would shoot their entire catalog for the upcoming season. A daunting task to take on between all the other stuff I have going on, but I figured why not. After a day of work at SNOWBOARDER I had to rush up to Laguna Beach to get some lifestyle shots in the couple remaining hours of light we had left. A beach shoot turned into a sunset shoot, and without flash equipment on me I was forced to get creative…but it all seemed to work out in the end. Check out a few more photos from the shoot after the jump.

Never heard of Rhythm? The are an Australian based clothing brand making their way into the US. Check out more of their stuff at RhythmLivin.com. Also keep an eye out for their upcoming snowboard outerwear line… I got a sneak peak and their stuff looks surprisingly good.

A few weeks ago my friend Andrew Arthur asked me to come up and help him with a photoshoot at Lake Arrowhead in Southern California. One of the models was FORD LA’s Mariana Saori Renteria, who happens to be Eddie Wall’s fiance. Eddie was there to document the day for his site Video Hyper Shred. Check out the video above. And below are two pictures I took of Saori with my Polaroid Land Camera.

So I’m not going to lie.. I’ve been neglecting my Rad Collector column a bit, at least as far as putting up my own photos. So this is an attempt to make up for that. A few months back Corey Smith asked me to shoot some portraits of him with his artwork for an interview he did for Kitten Magazine. See more photos from the shoot after the jump.

While you’re at it take a look at Corey’s artwork and photography.

Last fall I made a trip out to Berlin, Germany with Nikita as the North American winner of their photoshoot contest. This was my first time to Europe, and it was an incredible trip, with an awesome group of people. We bounced around to interesting spots throughout Berlin doing photoshoots. Between shoots the incredible Ben Fee shot some videos….. here are a few from the trip.
