Ahhh, it’s Camzilla!…. Okay, that might make more sense after you watch the video then hit the Ride UK website to get a closer look at the cover.
“The first issue of the new year is here! Who would of thought that we would be shooting a cover on something as simple as a concrete block. A concrete block which is situated less then 100 meters from Ride UK HQ. About a month ago, these cold and crusty looking blocks outside the Smithfield Meat Market found themselves a new lease of life, when Berlin based street artist, Evol gave them a fresh lick of paint.
We joked about shooting a riding photo on these blocks, but there was no doubt about it though as they look pretty sweet whether you’re into “street art” or not. As the shorter-than-normal-Christmas deadline approached we needed a cover and Cam Hardy was on hand to come visit the Ride UK HQ and shoot on the transformed concrete block. Check it out!”
Ride UK staff photographer, Nathan Beddows, put together 18 of his favorite photos from the year. There’s a TON of goodies like this above one of Corey Martinez so make sure you check this out!
