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.

Huge thanks to everyone for the photo opps, taking me to your spots, letting me in your backyard and for just inspiring me to skate. See you next year.

sick! you should get something today just to do it up right.


Great work Brandon. A very impressive year to say the least. You consistently covered so many great spots and skaters. Looks like you were shooting every week!! Were you able to skate much or were you too busy behind the camera? Tough balance man. Have a great new year.



thanks Jay! I actually skated more this year than in the past, but still managed to get some shots. Definitely tough to balance the two. Hopefully I can get up north and skate this year.

Thanks for sharing your images with CD and the world! Your doing an awesome job. I hope you have another great year. This write up reminds me of what I used to be doing up to about 5 years ago when my health started to get in the way. Now I’m on a much more limited program, but appreciating the same sentiment you have.



Thanks Jeff. I appreciate all you do and for letting me be a part of it. Heres to a healthier new year!


Hey dude, between you and Ozzie, my stoke has been fueled to new levels.
And seriously, I’ve needed it this year. So thanks. And good job. Heres to a healthy, prosperous and skate filled new year. I’ll be reading…
