Photography is something that I have loved for almost as long as I can remember. It’s one of those things that just makes sense to me. To be able to capture single moments in time and have them to look back on forever is an incredible thing. Photography is not only what I live for but it’s almost somewhat of an obsession. Now, even though the saying is “a picture is worth a thousand words” no one wants to see a magazine without a little something to read. Writing magazine articles is a huge privilege and an opportunity that I never take for granted. Having your own photos in print is one thing but having an article with your photos as well as your words is a pretty amazing feeling. Most people might wonder how articles come about, how magazines decide on which ones to run, who writes them, and who comes up with the ideas. Well, if you happen to be one of those people then you are in luck because that’s what this week’s column is all about; creating an article from a concept to a finished product.
Soul loaded up Max Bimar, Berenger Cordier and Justin Fouque and took them to some of the best trails spots around the U.K to do some filming. They came back with this awesome video that’s loaded with style and good times. I definitely suggest you hit that play button.

For this week’s feature I wanted to do something different and put together an exclusive gallery from the time I spent working on the #MCNLBC article for Soul Magazine. I went through my folder of files and ended up stumbling upon this mix of photos that seemed to work well together. Whenever you invest a decent amount of time into a project you are always going to have an overload of photos that end up sitting around for no reason other than the fact that you can only fit so many photos in a single article in a magazine. Instead of letting them disappear into the darkness of my archives I figured I would let them see the light of day and get some shine time. Sit back, grab a drink and enjoy the gallery.
This is damn good! Take a look!
“This remix features our trips and sessions of the past year all over France, Russia and Spain on some of the craziest spots we’ve ever ridden. So we decided, in collaboration with Soul BMX, to put it together for a DVD bonus section of the Soul issue 73.
