Erick Stricker Skate Jam

So some of my homies and I decided to head out to the Transworld Skateboarding offices this past Saturday to pay our respects to Eric Stricker who recently passed away. Eric was the Editor for Transworld Skateboarding Magazine and he will be greatly missed.

I have been reading TWS for 13 years now so I was glad that I could come and show my respect to someone such as Eric that made it possible for myself and millions of other skateboarders and skateboarding fans to have a magazine with some real skateboarding content inside.

The turnout was a good one, seeing many people rocking Chi-town Jerseys and putting back plenty of silver bullets! People were tearing up the skate park and all in all it was great vibes from everyone that was there. It felt like a real family, a skateboarding family which is what we all are.

Here are a few photos I shot. Enjoy.

Kelli's Cali Trip

Ok, so Kelli (my G/F :) took a trip to Cali for the weekend to spend some time with me (the B/F :). The last time I saw Kelli it had been in early July from a roadtrip I took with some good friends to Flint Michigan. Before this I had not seen Kelli in a little shy of one year.

A lot has happened in Kelli's life and it hasnt all been good, in
fact a lot of it has been very tragic and sad.
Kelli is one of my favorite people to photograph, she has so many different amazing raw feelings and emotions that show through her that are always amazing to capture. She's also so beautiful to photograph, im always telling her that which she always shrugs off but I believe these photos show for themselves.

Kelli, you are truly a gorgeous girl.
