This is a local Byron girl, Tahnee. We just shot the latest Globe winter apparel campaign at our little surf shack in Byron and Tahnee was kicking around. It’s taken through the windshield of my car with the tail of a longboard on the roof providing the shade that you can see her through. It would be so much cooler if I could actually ride the longboard instead of shuffling around the Pass on it like a German tourist.
A few months ago we did a trip to Italy for Craig’s new movie that Dane is making. We had such a fucking rad time but we ended up spending three weeks on the road getting skunked in every corner of the globe imaginable. Australia to LA to Paris to Milan to Portugal to London to LA to Mexico and then we gave up finally. Souls destroyed. This is Craig on one of the last days in Portugal overlooking howling, rainy, messy shit. Pretty much sums up the whole trip.
On the road again for Dear Suburbia fanging through some gator-filled wetlands down south. This was a roll of slide film that I got cross-processed because I didn’t want to wait to get it done properly. I thought it would look OK, but ended up looking like it had been through the Lomo filter on Instagram 100 times, which was a bummer.
I did a trip a few months ago to Big Bear with my girlfriend for a little escape from the spinning, destructive vortex that is LA. It\’s so nice that there’s a place you can drive two hours and actually get to be amongst nature and fresh air. The first afternoon we were there we hiked up to a little ridge and pretty much the whole time we were up there I was convinced we were going to be mauled and killed by a great white bear or something. I tired to act tough and pretend I wasn’t scar
Warren and I did a drive from LA to Panama City, Florida a few months back for a little online magazine we do when we can called Proxynoise. We ended up at some wild little town in Texas for Fourth of July and I shot a roll of fireworks and then double-exposed it. This portrait of Warren was one of my favorites from the roll.
This is Kai, on a barge, somewhere on the Dear Suburbia trip again, with his little Super 8 getting some seagull gold I think. One thing you have to know about Kai is he never. Stops. Working. Ever. His nickname is Business Borg and he is the busiest man you’ll ever meet. And drinks seven people’s worth of coffee per day.
This is Nate Tyler’s zone up north around Morro Rock. We surfed here one evening and then when we came in to get changed two old girls were feeding these prehistoric-sized seagulls. This lady nearly lost at least three of her fingers when she started throwing bread to these monsters.
Cross-country for Proxynoise again, I think we were somewhere near a little town called Needles here. Someone’s Japanese rice rocket had been pushed too far and given up. We were too scared to stop in case the thing blew, so I held the camera out the window and hoped for the best as we sped by.
