Stop Talk regular Jeremy Pavia reached out to let us know his long-awaited and much improved portfolio website is up and running. Take a few minutes to click around and you’ll most likely find some motivation to do creative and positive things.
Joe Simon explains his methods and reasoning for ramped slow-motion footage citing his Chase Hawk “Austin, Texas” project from last year.
Kenny Stremes in Antwerp, Belgium shot by Brent De Geeter
“Last week we were riding in Antwerp & noticed this abandoned boat in the harbor. So one week later we went back to the boat with all the equipment that I needed. We row to the boat in a little rowboat with two pieces of wood as paddles. When the flash was set up on the boat I took a couple of test shots before the final result. I’m really stoked on how this photo came out !
Canon Eos 6d
Canon Ef 70 – 200 mm f 2.8
1 Yongnuo 560 II on the rider’s right (full power)”

Ben Towle in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire, England shot by Mike Chudley
“So Ben Towle & Myself were out filming a couple of street clips around 11pm the night before this photo, he was sending up a few hop whips flat ground and I shot a few but they had horrible lighting and the location was poor (Scunthorpe) so we got talking about perfect locations to shoot a photo and we both thought about the Humber Bridge. It’s only a 20 minute drive from where we live so that is pretty convenient. We figured the best time of day to shoot the photo would be really early in the morning so natural lighting was good enough but the roads weren’t too busy. After we pictured what we wanted it to look like we just thought we may as well just go do it in 5 hours’ time at 4am when the sun rises. We headed down, I got various different photos but the main one we pictured came out perfectly, so yeah not much else to it. I must give Ben credit for sending about 50 hop whips so I could get the perfect photo haha.

Jay Dalton in Poughkeepsie, New York by Zach Honahan
“While sitting down on my computer editing wedding images, I received a spontaneous phone call from my good friend Jay Dalton who was in the area,who just left doing a Ramp show performance in a elementary school. I quickly grab my light stands and camera bag, rushing out of my front door toward my car. I drove an hour to Poughkeepsie, New York where I would soon meet Jay and two other homies. An hour later, I arrive at Waryas skatepark seeing Jay and his two other friends looking quite winded from the session. I approached Jay asking to shoot a boosted T-Bog air and hopefully angle it enough where I could get him in the sky. For the photo, I used an Alienbee B800 sitting on a 10ft light stand, at around 8 1/2 foot tall. The Alienbee was angled toward Jay at around a 10-20 degree angle. The Alienbee was fired at full power, to the left of the frame, around 12-13 feet away from Jay. As far as a secondary light, there was a Nikon SB910 shooting at 1/16th as just a little filler toward the back of the frame sitting on another light stand.”
Nikon D3100, 40mm 2.8 Macro (I left my 50mm at home, so I pulled out this lens from my camera bag), Alienbee B800, Nikon SB910, two 10ft lightstands.”
