Just finished up this "Day in the Life of a Weena-Man" with +Cory Grove of the infamous Cobra Dogs for Yobeat. Fun stuff. A little peeing off mountains, a little heckling by Aaron Draplin, and a little snowboarding.

Checked out the NW Vintage BMX show today in Vancouver, WA. Shot a few photos. The late 70s Patterson was amazing. That bike has stood the test of time.

NW Vintage BMX Show. When it comes to BMX bikes, it doesn't get any better than the stuff from the early days — the late 70s and early 80s. In many respects, the late 70s Patterson Racing bike sho...

I'm 90%sure it's from Mt. Hood (meadows) earlier this year. I dug it up from some stuff I had saved from my point and shoot that I liked. Seems to be the Meadows lift though.

In the mid 90s, Kieran Chapman took the New England BMX zine "Wire" first to Hypercard stack (distributed on a 3.5" floppy), then to the web. eWire was way ahead of it's time.

Kieran set up a Vimeo channel with the "best of" Wire video containing highlights from the videos he made between 1989 and 1995, all New England based. Some big names in these things: Joe Johnson, Keith McElhinney, Josh Heino, Adam Murphy, Darren Pelio, etc. There's also a dude who looks like a much younger version of myself.

These videos only made it to VHS, then a few years ago surfaced on YouTube, so it's great to see them archived on Vimeo.

Vimeo channel for Wire (the original BMX web site) best of video (1989-1995). New England BMX history. http://vimeo.com/channels/wirevideo
"Wire: 1989-1995" contains highlights of the riding videos I did in those years: "Documentary: New England" (1989) "Buck Whyrin'" (1991) "Live Wire" (1993) "Losers of the Year" (1995) The videos fea...

It's been a long time since I've really had any BMX clips of myself filmed... Shit maybe 10 years... But my old Boston friend / fellow Portland transplant has been filming some stuff for a video, and its always easy filming with old friends. There's a clip of me in the trailer at 1:48.... Guess this means I have to get on my filming game and stack some clips? Fun stuff. Let's tear ligaments and get bruised! http://vimeo.com/27469483

Just watched the "Art of Flight" trailer again that came out last week. Even if you have no interest in Snowboarding, watch it for the cinematography. The Brain Farm guys are killing it as always. http://www.yobeat.com/2011/07/30/art-of-flight-metal-teaser/

Introduction
Atop a small set of stairs which can only be accessed through a vegan bakery in Portland, Oregon, you will find my studio. I got started in design by making magazines in the mid 90s in Boston. I've photographed BMX bikes for many, many years, and in 2001 started a creative studio called Souney Media. In 2008 I helped relaunch the snowboard web site Yobeat.com, and currently assist as Creative Director, as well as the development of a retail apparel line.
