Although most of you know that I headed East for the summer and ended up taking on the role of head photo instructor for the Digital Media program at Camp Woodward in Pennsylvania, you may not know anymore than that, or might not even know what the program is really about. After spending three months back on my home-coast, it made me realize how different the East Coast is compared to the West Coast. More specifically Los Angeles, California compared to Woodward, Pennsylvania. I had the opportunity to take on an important role at one of the most influential places on earth. If you know anything about Woodward, you know how amazing it is. Every person that goes there has the same exact sentiment towards camp. It’s a place where you can truly be free and exist in this unique, almost surreal environment based around action sports. As for the Digital Media side of things, they have one of the most progressive programs around and truly put in the effort to do things the right way for the good of the campers. The future is looking bright for upcoming photographers and filmers thanks to a unique program that lets kids work not only with professional creative’s, but also have the chance to meet and shoot with some of the most talented BMX riders and Skateboarders in the world.
Here’s a fresh one TCU dropped featuring Sean Ricany, Grant Germain, Alex Midler, Mike Sugdinis and Jordan Stewart all getting down at Woodward! As you can imagine, a line up like this is bound to have some wild riding in it. Take a peek!
Jeremiah Smith is one of those riders that has been putting in work year after year and it’s finally been paying off. He has a major bike sponsor, travels on a pretty consistent basis, rides exactly how he wants to ride, and just recently finished on the podium at X Games in Los Angeles. He ended up in third, right behind Garrett Reynolds and amongst the top street riders in the world. It’s not every day that you get to line up with nine of the best riders in the world on live T.V. but he’s no stranger to laying it down when it counts. He’s the type of person that knows what he wants, and does what he wants. He has his daily routine pretty dialed and rides more than most people that I know. I caught up with him as soon as he got back from the X Games to talk a little bit about riding, life and the future. Keep on reading to find out what he does in his downtime, where he plans on moving someday and what projects he’s currently working on.
