The Face of an FBM Jam
Mark and Devon
Here are a handful of photos of Mark Burnett and Devon Swahlan. Mark, Devon, and the Call Your Bluff crew were cool enough to let me follow them around one day and document the filming of their video. They are still out there grabbing clips so keep an eye out for Call Your Bluff soon.
Snaps with Kyle Hibbard
These are five photos I shot with Kyle this spring. I offer them with little explanation.

Jaunt in New Zealand
Mike and Mark Potoczny put together this awesome edit from New Zealand for Jaunt. Open a beer, press play and plan your next excursion.
Lost Bowl Photo Gallery
This was my first ride on the bus. We drove through the rain to a pool jam and Crandall was still cracking jokes.
Fire Brooms Mayhem
Van Homan literally kicking things off.
Fellow bus first-timers
Van working the crowd
Steve, always a smile on his face.
Seamus, pitted tire slide around the shallow end.
Garrett, footplant to fakie under the shelter of a tree.
Conor, topside whip
I am pretty sure Seamus learned these during the jam.
Sometimes, Seamus would end up down here.
Crandall has the jokes
WE ARE 138
Kenny Horton, from the quarter, to the roof, to the small quarter. Crandall had just finished drying the landing for maximum deah.

Seamus, pitted champion
Thank You Steve!

A rad edit from a trip last summer. Kyle Hibbard, Chris Hancock, Bryan Tarbell, Tobias Pettineli, Greg Bloss, Ray Rankin, Henny, John Corts and Gary Ellis hold it down for going fast and having fun.
90 East Spring Collection
The 90 East site was relaunched today in conjunction with a new line of apparel for the spring season. I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse just prior to the release and I have to say I was amazed at the attention to detail throughout the line. Lino himself stitched the patches on both the jackets and hats for the entire line. When I asked him about it, he jokingly responded that he was now in need of a new sewing machine. Afterwards, he told me that it was because he knew he would obsess over a detail like that if it wasn’t right; also that he enjoyed the process of learning something new. The effort shows. Check out the site 90 East.
For those who may not know, 6×6 is a format of film shot by medium format cameras. There is something about this increased film area that does something strange and wonderful for bmx and skate photographers. Once I realized those square pictures came from a certain funny camera, I knew I had to get one and start making my own. This gallery is a celebration of the larger, more-to-love film format.
This would the be oldest photo in the gallery. I shot this at the second Chowdaw Jam. The gauntlet was set up by the Bone Deth guys the night prior. Before they could arrive at the Jam the next day, this dude was taking rebel runs down the gauntlet.
I shot this with Jack Hartje at an abandoned swimming pool in the woods of upstate NY. Jack took a fall recently. Some sources described it as a freak pizza-eating accident. Heal up, Buddy!
Deep in Patriot country, Jake Reid wears a Steelers jersey that almost overshadows this rad ice pick grind.
Lee Hopkins was good enough to tell me about this spot over dumplings and PBR. That weekend, we trespassed our way to what has to be one of the craziest places I have been on a bike.
If you are not familiar with HCS, it is the playground of the infamous Derek Nelson. The ramps are truly unique. If you are not familiar with Kyle Hibbard, you may not realize how quickly he got this downside table.
David Harrison of Spooky cycles, FBM, and now Pedal Driven, took me out this summer to ride around his neighborhood. I guess he stumbled across this gem while walking Curtis.
