It’s been a busy summer so I haven’t had a chance to write much. So it’s time to catch up! I was offered a great opportunity to shoot Nyjah Huston for O.C. Weekly a few weeks ago. He’s an amazing skateboarder based in Orange County. Dude this kid is wicked talented and at the top of his game. Nijah has is own personal skate park in an industrial park in San Clemente. Shooting the cover was a breeze and Nijah was fun to work with. Even the action shots. I kept instructing Nijah to keep doing the same tricks over and over so I can get the shots I wanted and every time he pulled them off flawlessly. Made my job easier since we only had a two hour window to get what we needed. The guys at O.C. Weekly were great and the issue turned out fantastic.
You can read the online O.C. Weekly article HERE.
Here is a excerpt:
Nyjah Huston’s black Nike SB T-shirt hangs off his slender frame as he casually cruises around his private, indoor skate park in San Clemente. It’s the kind of setup every skater dreams of having—an entire warehouse full of ramps, rails, benches and stairs in all shapes and sizes. The neon-green rails and bright-purple women painted on the walls surrounding dark-stained concrete give the venue a bit of an electric eggplant vibe. With Future’s “March Madness” blaring from Huston’s iPhone through a pair of massive speakers, the only sign of the tranquil South County setting outside is the sunshine peeking through the open door of what would normally be the loading dock.
