The Cool Kids / Clipse Tour – Summer 2009

Posted: October 10th, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Friends, Photography |

This is a collection of photos I snapped recently on the road with The Cool Kids and the Clipse. My priority was shooting video for a new Cool Kids documentary that Ch’rewd is putting together so I didn’t have a lot of time to use the still camera. I think a got a few decent shots amongst the madness…..

Streetfighterz “ROC” 2009 – Day 2

Posted: October 2nd, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Friends, Photography |

Things almost got out of control (like Grahm pictured below almost dumping his stand-up wheelie on Hwy 270) but that seems to be the case every time these guys hit the highway. Sunday was a beautiful day for a ride. No wrecks, no fights, no cops, and no rain. Everybody wins………

Streetfighterz “ROC” 2009 – Day 1

Posted: October 1st, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Friends, Photography |

Local street-bike stunters “The Streetfighterz” hold an annual event in St. Louis called Ride Of The Century. In a nutshell this event consists of a large highway ride followed by a lot session somewhere in the city. Every year holds new surprises. The only thing organized is where and when the ride starts. Police, traffic, luck, and the law of averages make up for everything else that happens. The photos below consist of The Streetfighterz (AZ, DJ, Vaughn, and Sit Down Steve), Section 518, Grahm, and several other unknown riders.

I have been working with these guys for the last 4 -5 years helping them out with events, sponsorship, shooting video, and just hanging out. I have been waiting to shoot this event ever since I picked up a decent still camera and lens last November.

My boy Keith Mokris came in town from Cleveland to shoot stills and video. He is super talented, look him up at www.keithmokris.com. Here we are below snapping away on highway 44! This gives you an idea of how wild this ride really is!
