Today was one of those days where it was tough to find the motivation to blog! When you spend 7 hours looking through your whole house for the wallet you think you lost (I did find the wallet eventually at Jannis dads place!) and then kill yourself at the gym and come home with zero pictures on your camera its tough to know where to start!
But then I spent a few minutes on google and I figured that I would give you some throwbacks to some of my favorite memories from the past few years! So much fun to look back and think of all the fun stuff I have been able to see and do! Text under each picture!
Lets start with the day that had a big part in why I am where I am today! D spin 900 on a big ass step up back in the early 2000 in Mt Hood, not bad considering that it was almost 15 years ago! This was the first shoot I did with Chris Oconnel who later introduced me to Greg Strokes who was the Oakley team manager at the time! Two weeks later I signed with them and I think thats a big part of why I am where I am today!
Race shoot with Mattias Fredriksson in Panorama up in Canada the day before we drove up to Galena and spent a week heli skiing! Remember that it was cold as hell that day but we did get a ton of cool pictures and I almost hit Mattias a couple times as he wanted to be super close to the action! haha
My second home for a few summers, the water ramps in Stockholm. No fancy pool with bubbles there, just a ramp straight into the ocean where you had to clib in over rocks to get back up! Did 452 jumps all alone in one summer! haha
An early version of the Rebellion while it still had a Lexus TT engine pushing 962hp! Just a crazy machine! This was in Poland and the day after the track meet we had there I drove this thing to Monaco, well not all the way as the center bolts broke and we had to leave the car in Italy and take a taxi the last 500km!
One of my altime favorite shots from Mattias Fredriksson. This was in Limone which is 1 hour by car from Monaco, pretty crazy! Extra fact is that the pilot of the heli was the pilot in the Cliffhanger movie!
Same location in Limone but a different style jump a couple years later shot by Paul Ripke, love this jump location and the fact that i could spend the down days at home!
Shot in Åre during the Red Bull Home run right after I won the event in 2013, might be one of the most fun events out there. Will for sure do my best to try to make it out there this year! 750 people from the top of a mountain and a crazy afterski at the bottom, thats how a ski event should be run!
This shot was taken during the first 30 meters of the Audi R8s life! I guess it was a little low for the snow, but it sure looks a little funny on the picture! Really loved this car and now when I look back I wish I would have kept it, but I guess if I did, I would not have had the RS6, so with every sale comes new opportunities!
Hope you guys liked the post, will try to dig up some more old stuff, super fun for me as well to look though the memories! Time to sleep, see you guys in the morning. Some fun stuff coming up in the next few days, so stay tuned for that!
