Jerry Spagnoli Daguerreotype portraits

I´m working on my essay at the moment and whilst I was doing research I found Jerry Spagnoli's website and I just had to post a couple of his studio daguerreotype portraits.

These images by Salve López left me pretty speechless.
Finally found my motivation again. Times to start working...

my dumb luck

Scanned few rolls of photos today from christmas when I was back home in Finland. I think these came out alright.

Eetu Sundvall, Backside disaster at Jyvaskyla indoor park.

Okko Sirvio, Frontside nosegrind. I was struggling with this photo quite a bit. I couldn´t find a good angle for this trick, due to the limited size of the park, so I had to shoot it from behind.

Santeri Kulmala, frontside smith grind. We also went to Räsälä aka the pit after christmas and like always the pit scared the shit out of me.

Still trying to find motivation to get me started for the spring term. don´t know what´s going on, but I´m finding it so hard to start working again. I should be working on my essay right now, but....

SF photographer collective website CALIBER has an interview with Isaac McKay-Randozzi.I really like he´s work and I think it´s worth checking out.
I think it´s time to start taking more photos with my russian half frame camera....

back to work

It´s been a while, since I last posted anything. I was back home (Finland) for Christmas and New Year and my parents do not have the best internet connection at home, so I didn´t get a chance to post anything the for the 3 weeks I was there. But it was really good to be home, see my family, friends, relax and take some skate photos again. I´ll upload some later on, after scanning everything.

Now I´m back in Bournemouth with shit loads of work and no motivation what so ever. sounds good yeah? I must be stuck on "holiday mode" still. I´ve been really tired for the last 2 days and it feels so hard to start working again. don´t know....
Well, I guess I just have to start working again and stop complaining. After all, we have around 4 months left of uni and I´m going back to Finland again.

HUH. magazine has a interesting interview with one of my favorite (skate) photographers, Tobin Yelland, so check it out NOW! thanks for the heads up Jamo!

Also Cliché Skateboards finally released their new book called Resumé. 320 pages of european skateboarding history with photos, board graphics, art, etc.

Worth getting for sure. I´ve got two other photography / art books from Cliché and I have to say they are pretty damn good as well. All I can say is support Cliché and get it now. I know I will.
Well, I guess it´s back to work...
