“We shot this photo at Villanova University, there was probably about 30 people standing around watching so that was stressful, and I had to clone a couple people out of the photo. it was the first day with my new camera so i was still getting used to it. Marty didn’t even really wanna do the hanger, we didn’t film it or anything, i just thought it would make a cool photo. Marty is the man.

During my recent stay in Los Angeles, I linked up with Push It A Stop contributor Chris Mortenson and suggested that we make a photo walkthrough. Within minutes, a shoot with Raul Ruiz was organized and we found ourselves in Glendale, CA a couple days later. The resulting photo can be your new desktop wallpaper by choosing your monitor resolution from the list below-
Here is how the photo was made-
“I took this photo one evening at my friend John’s mini ramp that was just recently constructed. As the sun was setting we decided to setup up an older box jump take off lip “upside down” to create a pocket air transfer. I setup two vivitar 285hv’s for lighting to mix with the reddish evening glow that was going on. Went with the low fish to help the ramps frame the rider with their distorted look.”
