The 2014 Interbike Super Duper Ginormous Gallery Day 03
PAUL

This is it, the final day of Interbike. My shutter finger is sated for the time being, my feet are sore and It’s been a busy week. I think I’ve hit all the booths I wanted to, along with some requests… Vegas is rad and all, but I’m ready to roll on home to Texas. Thanks to everyone who hung out and chatted this week. It was a pleasure to meet you.

Enjoy the largest gallery to ever grace this site and again, feel free to ask any questions in the comments!

King Dude and Ghost at Emo’s in Austin
King Dude

Each year, my friends in the band King Dude roll through Austin for a tour of some sorts. Whether it’s a festival or just a quick stop through, I always look forward to having them around. Usually they crash at my house and we get to drink bourbon and hang out. I like to think that it’s a bit of a break from the chaos that is touring across the country in a van.

This tour in particular found them opening for Ghost, the Swedish stadium NWOBHM band. While I haven’t been into Ghost all that much, I will say I really enjoyed their live act and stage antics. They packed out Emo’s East in Austin and put on one hell of a show. The fans were sooooo into it!

Each of these bands have been busting their asses on the road for the past two weeks and tonight’s the first stop on their east coast tour. If they’re coming through your town, give them some love. Also, you can now pre-order King Dude’s newest record, Fear at TJ’s label, Not Just Religious Music.

2013 Interbike: Gallery 01
Hey boyyyyz

After spending a week at Eurobike, I was already over tradeshows. For me, Interbike is less about seeing new products and more about meeting people and hanging out but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy shooting products. My favorite product from the first day was the Paul Component quick release skewers…

See more in the Gallery!

Selection
MW_photoshow-94

Since receiving low res scans of my 220 and 35mm film from the Mission Workshop China tour, I’ve been slowly editing down the photos for a show and a limited edition book. Lyndi from Mission Workshop has been a huge help in editing down all the photos and in this selection process, we’ve found a surprising number of pairings. It’s nice to finally nail down a concept.

My photo show and book launch, entitled the Ends will be taking place on Saturday, June 15th in San Francisco at Mission Workshop. More details to come on the event but mark that date down.

I hope you can make it out!

2013 NAHBS!
Chris King is bout it bout it.

NAHBS. For some, it represents a culmination of a year’s efforts and creates unbearable stress and deadlines. For others, it’s a place to see all your friends, have a drink, or twenty and dork out over bikes. Then there’s the media, scrambling around with mini recorders, LCD lighting for their DSLR rigs, flashes, notepads and sweaty brows. Somewhere in between all of this, I fall into place.

Over the years of covering NAHBS, I’ve gone from taking it very seriously to finding a middle ground (thanks to Tracko for always talking some sense into my bull-headed mind). Halfway between the all-nighter, hot tub hopping, bourbon binge fest and the casual conversation in a pizza restaurant is where NAHBS fell for me this year. I didn’t stress about how to cover what, I just showed up and went with what I felt was right.

This Recent Roll is an amalgamation of my time in Denver. Mixed in are some convention center shots, some party pics from the #OutsideisFree event, a few from the Mile High Messenger Challenge alleycat and some around the town photos.

I already can’t wait until next year! Again, this photoset is a little long, so I narrated each photo.

2013 NAHBS Gallery
Pass it over here now!

“builder’s hands are always dirty…”

NAHBS is always a difficult event to cover. There’s no feasible way for me to go to every booth and talk to the builders, or select one of their frames to shoot, so I tend to just walk around, aimlessly and stop to shoot when something catches my eye. This Photoset is filled with randomness from the show, check the captions for more information and check out my other NAHBS coverage here.
