Pogo Photo Archives – Part 2

Last week I posted the first part of a multi-part series with a peek into the pogo photography i’ve taken over the last fifteen years. As promised, here is part 2 with ten more photos!

Michael Mena – Sarasota, Florida (2014)
Mena throwing a huge Mandy with the ocean in the background.

Ryan O’Malley – Bradenton, Florida (2010)
Found this one on my camera from 12 years ago, not sure who shot it but I love a good Tuck Reverse photo.

Russ Kaus – Auckland, New Zealand (2017)
Russ, Dan Brown, and I took a trip to NZ for a gig. We had very little time to explore, but we found this old dormant volcano and adventured to the top.

Nick Ryan – Bradenton, Florida (2009)
I obviously didn’t take this photo seeing as I’m in it taking another photo, but I still had the original on my hard drive from whoever did. Nick Ryan with a huge tweak.

Biff Hutchison & Jake Gartland – Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
A little behind-the-scenes. Biff showing Jake a video clip during a sesh in Canada.

Pogo Photo Archives – Part 1

Basically the entire time i’ve been pogoing I’ve been taking photos and documenting my experience. Every once in a while I will dig through my archives and pull out some highlights and bring them new life. Here’s part of a multi-part series with ten photos throughout the last fifteen or so years. Keep an eye out for part 2 coming soon!

Tone Staubs – San Diego, California (2016)
We climbed up to the to the top of this seaside cliff for a photo sesh after a day of exploring.

Still one of my favorite photos, i’m glad I caught this. This child saw us at the skatepark earlier in the week and showed back up with his own pogo stick!

Photo Sequences

While digging through some pogo photo archives recently, I started noticing a lot of photos sequences I (or someone else) shot but had only ever used one of the frames. Some of these I had shot with the intent of stitching together into sequences, some were just happy accidents with the camera in burst mode. I’ve always liked this method for showing the entirety of a trick in a single image – each motion is broken down, and the parabolic curve of each jump is revealed.

I couldn’t leave these shots in a dark corner or some hard drive, so I gathered a bunch of photos and edited together this collection from over the years. Enjoy ?
