2010 Photographic Year in Review.

As the year comes to a close, I like to look back at some of the photos I shot over the past 12 months. I do it mostly for myself but also in hopes that this will hype some people up to go skate, shoot photos or just get outside and live. I have skated more backyard pools this year than most people will get to skate in their lifetime…Ozzie Ausband and the Badlands crew are 100% responsible for that. Getting to skate and shoot with some of the greatest dudes around is truly an honor. Each year my board and camera take me to amazing places and introduces me to people that I know I can call friends for life. Here is just a small sample of the things that went down this year.
