Owen Howells Photography

One careful lady owner.

Sam Thompson-Bluntslide.

Stormy St Govans.

Brooklyn bridge with Manhattan, New York.

Above are some brilliant photographs taken by Owen Howells, I have know Owen on a personal level for several years now, we first met in Carmarthen when he was filming a Pembrokeshire skateboarding scene video, and asked me if I would like to have a section on it. Since the release of the video 'Don't Walk' in December 2006 Owen has concentrated on his photography rather than film making, he has developed a unique style and a very good reputation for himself, shooting a variety of different themes. You can see more of Owens’s photography on his website by clicking here.


Zach Johnsen Illustration

Here is a really good piece illustration by a guy named Zach Johnsen, the title of this illustraion is 'life under the power lines'. To view more of his work click here.


Spike Jonze Videos

Here are two amazing videos to watch, both have been directed by the famous Spike Jonze. If you have not yet heard of him you should really check his work out.
If you skateboard you will without a doubt like the first video, but even if you don't I'm sure you will appreciate it! The first video is the intro to a skate film that was released in November 2007 by a shoe company called Lakai the video is called 'Fully Flared'.

The second is the music video to a song named 'Drop' by a really good hip-hop group named The Pharcyde. A lot of other people have ripped of the idea behind this video but this is the origional. Check out the videos bellow.

Anyone For Some RJD2..?

Rjd2 'work it out' video.

Rjd2 'ghostwriter' this is not the officail video for the song.

Here are two music videos from one of my favourite music artists, Rjd2.
I really like his different approach to maikng music and have been a fan of his musci for about 4 years, his song 'smoke and mirrors' is one of my top favourite songs out there. I also really like the song 'work it out' and i think the video for it is amazing, it includes a guy named Bill Shannon who was born with a degenerative hip condition. Basically his legs cannot carry his own weight and so he has lived most of his life on crutches. He has developed a new way of moving through life using a skateboard and crutches. Though this may seem like a recreational hobby , it is simply how Bill maneuvers throughout the day.

I hope you enjoy the music and the videos!


Nighttime Photography

Above are a few photographs I took while I was out on a late night photography mission the other night, this is the fist time I have played about with long exposure times so they are nothing to write home about.


Face Templates.

Got some spare time on your hands..?

Then check this out,
It's great fun and can take hours away from your life if your not too careful! It's part of the Converse website, they have given you five different face templates to do draw on. Above is a quick example of what you could do. If you have a graphics tablet it's even better because your designs look better than using a mouse or track-pad. Hope you enjoy it!

My First Blog!

Hi guys!

As this is my first blog i am not really sure what to blog!
Sooo.....I will start by giving you two YouTube links to look at, they are two skateboarding video edits I made between easter and june last year. The first link is a short video of leftover footage that I had not used in anything, and the second link is a video that was filmed in one week while me and few friends were on a skateboarding holiday in Barcelona last year.
I hope you enjoy them..!
