"The thing with digital photography and the Internet is that anyone can be published. Anyone can post something online. That’s why I always want to have something in print; otherwise it wouldn’t hold any weight for me. You don’t have to go through much of an editing process, other people didn’t have to make decisions on your work: “Is this good enough? Is this sharp enough? Is this well-lit enough?” You know? With a magazine, only the best shit gets through. If you can do that then you’re a real photographer. Any idiot can post some Instagram photo and put a filter on it. That doesn’t make you a photographer."—Dave Chami

The famous Picasso sculpture in downtown Chicago. 2007 Ice Cream trip. Jimmy had to run, hop up the ledge, throw his board down and then wallride. He re-did it so many times for me as I was scrambling to get my flashes right. I tried to get more of that bum in the picture. You rule, Jimmy!

Almost forgot about shooting this one. Ben stayed true to his East Coast roots and always wore camo! Pete Jimenez was filming this day.

Willy found this spot at a fireman’s training facility in Poway, California. Major trespassing but a unique spot. Thanks Willy!
