As a photographer I am always searching out ways to set myself apart and create content that people will be into. It’s one of the biggest challenges and one of the hardest parts about it to be honest, especially these days when everyone has a camera of some sort with them on a regular basis whether it is a digi-cam or an iphone and life is being documented by the minute. It’s a mix of doing what makes you happy and trying to figure out what will make viewers happy as well. That’s where this new “A different perspective” idea came from. Over the years I have interviewed tons of pro riders about anything and everything except one important topic. What is it like from their perspective to go out and shoot with a photographer? What it is that makes one person better to shoot with than others? I have always wondered about what goes on inside a riders mind before they prepare to shoot a crazy banger and put all of their trust into the photographer. Check out some more photos from my trusty disposable camera from the X Games and see what Rob Wise, Aaron Ross and Josh Harrington all had to say for the second edition of “A different perspective.”
Since we started doing photogalleries we’ve been getting a ton of real good submissions from all over the world from some of the best in the game to up and coming guys. It’s been pretty amazing to say the least. As long as we keep getting the submissions we’ll be dropping photogalleries to give these guys some shine time. Brandon Squires is one of those up and coming guys from the Philadelphia area that has been getting the hang of things and producing some real solid shots. He recently sent through a set of photos for you guys to take a peek at so get to it!
The Quintin Co. crew loaded up the van a few weeks back for a trip from Los Angeles to Austin, Texas for the Texas Toast Jam. While they were on the road they stopped to check out some street spots and parks and ended up filming this video that has everything but footage from the Texas Toast Jam, haha. After you check that out, hit this LINK to check out a bunch of photos from the trip.
“Follow the Quintin boys on a trip into god’s country, where they encounter sleepless nights, a million cold ones, rumbling ese’s, forest fires, and a boat load of good times.
