This passed weekend we (revolution and kfd) went to Klerksdorp for two days of skating and chilling with the locals. I have always wanted to shoot on the railway lines so I made everyone get out the van on the way there and did some stuff. I shot a bunch of photos but made this set with Braxton who is looking like a ripper right now. Sadly he broke his wrist the next day but good times were still had by all. Quick thank you to Clayton for the good times and for being stoked on my work. It means a lot.
Last night we did a quick shoot in the Revolution Warehouse for the start of our skateboard tour that we are doing in the next few days. Anyway, the sunset there is always so beautiful and joburg just always looks so clean. I love it. Well, I shot these two photographs of the skyline with the sun from inside the warehouse through some fencing. I liked it.
For those of you who don’t know, tomorrow is the Night of 1000 Drawings exhibition. It is all for a charity and definitely the coolest way to raise money ever. Basically people submitted drawings, photos and just other random art peices on A5 and they will be sold for R100 and the money will be used to purchase a bakkie for the charity. You can read more about it all on their blog at http://1000drawings.blogspot.com but anyway, these are the ones I submitted. Whoo hoo.
During December last year (2005), I joined the Revolution / KFD Team for a skateboard tour and I shot these portraits of the team in the Johannesburg warehouse at the start of it. I liked these photographs a lot and decided to post them because in a few weeks we will be touring again and this stuff gets me excited for it all.
On friday night, the maddest lightning storm took place. I was driving so decided to race home and give my first attempt at shooting photographs of it. The Joburg sky is so bright from all the city lights so I was limited with exposure times but these four are what I got from my roof before the rain belted down. Was an amazing site and a really good date.
