Mt Baker Banked Slalom 2013

February 11, 2013

The Mt Baker Banked Slalom is always an awesome event. Its a weekend filled with good times and a place you can always visit to see old friends. People race down the course, others hike for powder lines, and some even manage to do both. I decided to mostly shred hard during the 3 days so I didn’t take that many photos. Sometimes you just gotta ride for fun, even if you are carrying heavy camera gear. I did enjoy filming/photographing the Mt Baker Banked Handplant Competition, a new event for the more freestyle-oriented riders. It was a fun weekend. Thanks to Patrick McCarthy for hosting me and numerous other friends at his cabin in Glacier.

Here’s some video of Carl Lautenbach and Morgan Rose sending it off the Diving Board Cliffs, even though the landing looked pretty sketchy.

I just edited this Stevens Pass spring park all mountain snowboard park snowboard video. Its from last weekend on April 30th. Watch Colin Spencer and Madison Ellsworth tour the Stevens Pass and meet up with friends like Matt Wainhouse, Kevin Hanson, Dan Reid, Tony Richards, and Travis Cloughton for some hardcore spring shred in Stevens sick springtime setup. Stevens stayed open for some extra days in April and we had to get up to the mountain to enjoy the shred. Its awesome to see the resort stay open longer than I can remember and keep the park in such tip-top shape.

Today we hit the Mt Baker Cat Gap. The conditions were partly cloudy with some extended bluebird skies. The crew was me, Colin Spencer, Madison Ellsworth, and Langer, a filmer from Minnesota/Breckenridge/Snohomish. Luke Thorington showed up to help build, Carson Artec snapped some photos on his Canon 7d and Nick Ennen came out with his dog Luca to snag a few shots. Highlights were the epic sunlight and Colin Spencer snagged a backside 720 that was a definite solid shot for a video part. It was also a successful photo mission, I was able to grab some shots of the cat gap from a few unexplored angles.

Mt Baker Arm Snowboard Session w/ Carl Lautenbach

April 3, 2012


Monday, April 2 was a sick day at Mt Baker. It was a surprise bluebird day so Carl Lautenbach decided he wanted to do some drops near the Mt Baker Beast, an area located out of bounds near the top of chair 8. Carl went to do some drops off of the diving board and I filmed him from across the way with the Panasonic HPX-170 while I left my Canon 5d Mark ii filming in a static angle to show the overall size of the mountain. Carl ended up hiking 4 lines and his friend Darren decided to take a couple lines as well. It pays to go to the mountain regardless of the forecast, because the forecast is hardly right anyway.

Deejay Julicio visits Seattle

I went to pick up my friend Deejay Julicio from the Sea-Tac airport around 11am. Since he was only going to be in Seattle for one day we decided to attempt a mountain of travels around the city.

Casual Industrees

Julicio visits Casual Industrees (L to R: Chris Tagge, Julicio, Dan Reid)


First stop was West Seattle and the Casual Industrees house. I wanted to show Julicio what the local art scene is like here in Seattle. The boys at Casual are producing some of Seattle’s most fun and innovative clothing designs out of Dan Reid’s house near Alki. They have a full screenprint operation up and running, with the ability to receive, design, screenprint, and ship all in one location.

Deejay Julicio visits the grave of Jimi Hendrix


Someone at the Casual house told him that Jimi Hendrix was buried nearby in Renton. As a musician you can’t pass through the city without visiting the grave of Jimi Hendrix. According to Julicio, “It’s like visiting Paris and not visiting Jim Morrison’s grave.” Kinda creepy, we both agreed, but we decided to visit for the adventure. Plus I’d never even been there and its a local landmark. It turned out to be a very classy memorial made of marble located at Greenwood Cemetary.

We headed to downtown Seattle so I could take him to my favorite happy hour sushi spot called Umi Sake House. We ate a couple Seattle Rolls, mmmmm, then went to scope the Pike Place Market.

Gum Wall Seattle

I showed him the infamous Gum Wall. There is a gumball machine there and by my estimates they have sold well over a million gumballs. There is hardly a spot to put gum anymore, there are so many pieces all over the wall.

We went through the waterfront district and up to the Seattle Center. There is all kinds of cool stuff to do down there like the Science Center, the Seattle Skate Park and the International Fountain. Key Arena was hosting a live taping of the X-Factor TV show and all kinds of people were filing in.

Deejay Julicio at Ibiza Seattle

By this time we started to get ready for a set at Ibiza Nightclub where Julicio was opening with MIC T at an album release party for 206 entertainment. After great performances by the two, we headed out to Bellingham to get prepared for Friday’s Summer Hiphop Kickoff party.

Snowboarder Magazine Competition

Superpark Showdown Video Competition

I was fortunate enough to be invited to go film as a representative of the Wildcard crew during Snowboarder Magazine’s Superpark 15 at Mt Bachelor, Oregon. We used the footage to compile an edit for the Superpark Showdown Video Competition where videos go head to head against each other. Right now our video is up against an entry from Bataleon Snowboards, who based their edit off the rap movie CB4, with Chris Rock. While I gotta admit the Bataleon boys have a challenging entry, I think we produced a better edit. We even got the one foot frontside 720 by Scooty Vine.

I had the privilege of working with the artist Son Duong yesterday. He asked Nick Ennen and I to come down to Seattle and film some behind-the-scenes footage of a couple magazine ad photo shoots he was doing with photographer Dan Manning. Son also had two gorgeous models there to participate in the shoot: Brenna Nickels and Brooke James.

Our first stop was Jewel Box Cafe in the Seattle Northgate Mall area. Its a pretty cool spot to lounge, with a rustic feel. Its a good place to kick back with coffee, tea, smoothies, bubble tea and crepes. The idea was to shoot a photo for an ad for Son of a Gun, the art company Son Duong runs.

The second stop was Acme Tattoo in Kent, Washington. Its a large shop with some cool owners that has a unique feel. We set up near the tattoo station in the middle of an array of art on wakeboards and skateboards. Everyone was discussing what tattoo we would get next and if we would even get one at all. In this location we were trying to establish the Skullcandy feel, and it seems to be the perfect location for it.

We had a great time, everyone got a pair of Skullcandy Headphones, and now there’s plenty of photos and footage to edit. Great work by Manning Shredtography getting those photos captured. Soon we will post our behind the scenes video of this photo shoot, but for now you will just have to enjoy these retrocamera photos from my phone.
