Reagan Riley, toboggan
“I had been wanting to shoot something with Regan for some time. After a few failed attempts to shoot together, due mostly to my family/work schedule I made plans to meet with him at a ditch I had seen him post on his Instagram. This thing is not easy to ride at all, but its home turf for Regan plus it defiantly helps that the dude can shred. After several failed angles and waiting on the sun to get lower than f16 I finally found the angle I wanted and here is one of the few fun shots we got that day. Hope you enjoy!!
Shot specs were:
Sunpak 622 to camera left @ 1/2 power with Pocketwizard PLUS II Receiver
Sunpak 555 to camera right @ 1/2 power with Pocketwizard PLUS II Receiver
Both triggered by Pocketwizard Flex TT5 so since Regan was in the upper section I can boost up the shutter to 1/500th sec.”

“February in a bike shop here in central California is typically a slow time of year. On this day in 2012 Chad Osburn and myself took an extended lunch to ride Chad’s Alma Matter. After shooting a few other shots digi around the school, we stumbled on these rails. I knew this would make for a good medium format shot, due to the ambiance and timeless, reckless, high school feel. What obviously added to the difficulty, was trying to avoid the snack bar counter, but he ended up sliding a few nice slow cranks across the cool blue rail. I shot this packed up and back to the shop we went.
As far as flash setup, my memories a little foggy, but I believe I used two flashes – Sunpak 555 in the far back right approx. 8ft. back, and a Nikon SB-28 to the camera’s left facing Chad.
Camera: Hasselblad 500c/m with the 80mm 2.8
Aperture: f 5.6
Triggered with: Paul C. Buff’s Cybersync’s
Film: Kodak Ektar 100”

So a few months back Cult held the Dehart/Swain Storm video edit competition. Out of 50 edits submitted, Chase D. chose Ryan Olsons’s for the grand prize. The grand prize consisted of a (At the time not available yet) Chase Dehart Butter frame, fork, pedals, tons of stickers… And the bragging rights haha.
Personally could not think of a more deserving dude than Olson, has to be about the most dedicated/innovative street rider in the area. I’m more than certain you will hear more from him in the future.
So Olson hit me up a few weeks ago so we could go get a couple shots of his “Buttery” new rig and this is what we got, follow the link and hope you enjoy! http://www.cultcrew.com/butter-winner-ryan-olson
Here is the edit that got him the CULT winnings.
