RAY BARBEE

Ray Barbee is one of the most gentle men you will ever meet. Under his quiet facade, you will uncover a passion for everything creative. This man can play music directly from his soul, skate like no other, and photograph images that capture the true persona of the person underneath… Watching Ray direct his creativity on a skateboard, through his guitar, and behind the lens will most definitely blow your mind.

Kirk and I had the chance to spend a day with Ray playing music, skating the neighborhood, and developing in the dark room as he processed endless rolls of film from past travels and explorations.

Check out the video created by the handsome Kirk Dianda, and my images and footage from the shoot below.

FEAR AND LOATHING IN AUSTRALIA – 1

Earlier this year Oakley sent us to Australia to shoot Ryan Sheckler’s commercial for their Beyond Reason campaign. While out there, we documented the trip for an online article for the newly re-launched One Icon site and interactive platform. The feature Fear & Loathing in Australia exposes a trip down under, starring Curren Caples, Eric Koston, Rune Glifberg, and Ryan Sheckler. With three RED cameras manned by Kirk Dianda, Eric Brag and Tim (not related to Steve) Irwin, along with photographer and skateboard superstar, Arto Saari, and myself to shoot photos, we captured all the mischief that went down.

See the full feature here.

Here are some of the behind-the-scenes images I shot.
