Who’s your favorite Canadian?
Do you remember the first time you saw a bike? What was so attractive about them?
My Dad had a Honda when I was a child. I remember riding on it with him around our property because I’m pretty sure it wasn’t exactly “Street Legal”.
You’re going to a desert island. You can only bring one: Skateboards or
Skateboard for sure…but either way starvation is inevitable.
Do you own/ride a motorcycle?
Which of the two do you find more challenging to shoot? Why?
Motorcycles are definitely more of a challenge for me to shoot because I’m a total outsider to that whole scene.
What do you think attracts skateboarders to motorcycles, motorcycle culture?
Definitely the danger/badass factor attracts skateboarders to bikes. They have that in common.
Give a little background to your photo(s) for the Soul Seekers show…
After the previous Soul Seekers show myself and Oskar Szydlowski talked about how cool it would be to shoot a photo of myself skitching behind Osks bike. After the right location was found we hooked it up and made it happen. No slams!
