    double exposed photos on film featuring some of my friends surfing in pacific beach, including billy snyder, matt dalton, j.d. yount, mele saili, hayden frye, nico espinoza, ricky cunningham, and boot poskey. a few of them were shot at windansea, including a couple of my personal favorites: a) the barbed wire shot, and b) the dude carving up the side of a la jolla bmw motorhome with his trusty rusty. enjoy.

    surfing double exposures volume II

    here are a few recent shots plus many of my earlier double exposure attempts, many of which i really dig for their whacked out ethos. lots of mood in this collection; reflections and missed corrections abound. half baked swap meet camera setups and whatnot. lately i find myself going for the 'home run', and looking at these reminds me how randomness can so often jive with the subconscious to create aesthetically pleasing imagery in the constant struggle to achieve 'unconscious competence'.

    Johnny and the Coasters

    this series of shots were some of my first intentional double exposures. they showcase one of the most entertaining longboarders i've ever had the pleasure to watch, johnny fay, and san diego's iconic belmont park coaster. the sheer providence of these shots continues to blow my mind. look at johnny raising his hands in joy as the coaster makes its plunging descent, reaching for the sky as if to shake some coconuts from a giant palm tree, and then being seemingly blown back at terminal velocity as a jet plane roars by overhead. none of this was planned... just magic!

    dbvm2 - mattson 2

    I shot these in 2012 when the Mattson 2 were playing a gig in support of the San Diego Surf Film Festival. Someone told me that Andy Davis is lurking behind the flowers in one of them, is it true? In any case, there's a certain synchronicity to double exposing twins, right?
