Team Birdman - Highlining Los Angeles

I spent the last couple months shooting this video while I graduated from slacklining to the lustrous world of highlining. After spending most of my free time training with David Kingston, Jon Fait, and Phillip Thomas, and people in the park asking if we were a club or a team, we decided to call ourselves Team Birdman. It's been exciting to dive into this new realm of pushing the body's limits. Got a little shout-out from Huffington Post as well!

Day Trip to Joshua Tree

It's been over a year since I've made a trip to Joshua Tree. I always seem to forget how close it is to Los Angeles. Did a day trip on Friday with David Kingston and Jon Fait from Team Birdman and my roommate, Ryan Hurtgen, to set up the 90' Hall of Horrors highline. Spent most of the day shooting video, but came back with a few fun frames. Successful sends from the crew and myself, making this the 4th highline under my belt. The last frame is a composite of a few long exposures of Jon scrambling through the dark to get his anchors he had forgotten at the peak.

Rockin' Like It's 1986

A few weeks ago I set up a photo booth for a friend's 80's theme birthday party. It was fun to work with lights and such an awesome background. Ended up being a little shiny for my liking but made it work as best I could. Hope you enjoy!
