I'm Not Going To Lie...

I'm not going to lie... it's a pretty cool feeling. Not sure if you read that from my previous post but... I'm a happy camper. So stoked that I dropped cash money and bought a magazine. I haven't spent money on a surf or bodyboard magazine in a long time. I'm one of those cheap asses that goes to Borders or Barnes & Noble and takes an hour or two to skim through his my favorite magazines to see all the sick photos and only read those topics that catch the eye.

But this was different. Now, I get to skim through Standup Journal and stop and say to myself... that's your photo right there sucka. I have a ton of great photographer friends and I see there names in the magazines all the time. But because I hang and am friends with them, it's seems like no big deal. They're good and that's what they do. You expect it from them. On that note... I really hope my pro photographer friends don't forget what it was like to get that first photo in the mag.

It's a pretty cool feeling.

Cover of the new ish. I got some old guy to take the photo. I think he was 93 years old.

Top photo. I like shooting with Sean Poynter. He's not afraid to get close. Whoa, that sounds gay.  That's Sean on the bottom right posing in a, shoud I say it, _______ position. Hahahaha... I love it.
