Johannesburg Article for COLOR Magazine

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

I shot this photo as part of a little article on Johannesburg for the guys over at COLOR Magazine in Canada.  It’s really an awesome magazine and covers not only skateboarding but  music and art as well.  I know we don’t get the magazine down here in South Africa but  if you’re abroad you should go ahead and pick up a copy, you’ll be happy with your purchase!

Streets for a Playground

I shot these photos on a recent trip to the Maboneng Precinct in the downtown area of Johannesburg.  This kid really enjoyed running up to the camera and then riding off down the street on his skateboard.

Cultural Contrast

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Johannesburg is definitely a place of diverse culture, with so many different languages and tribal back rounds, just about every person you meet has his or her own individual story of tradition and belief.  It’s an interesting place to say the least!  I’ve been going down there to meet up with the local skateboarders for the past couple weekends now trying to capture moments in time as they move about in this crazy, contrasted environment. 

Streets of Johannesburg

Monday, August 8th, 2011

A couple months back I wrote an article for COLOR MAGAZINE about an artist/friend over in California.  I have since then been trying to get more involved with doing some photography for them and getting some other articles published about the skate/art life here in South Africa.  I’ve been pretty busy with shooting photos in the downtown area of Johannesburg, with skaters and random people alike.  Trying to put together a story of life on the streets of Johannesburg.  There’s so much to photograph and interact with, so many different kinds of people and skaters, all hangin out and goin about their daily routine.  It’s an adventure in itself.  Here are some of the shots I took this last weekend.
