A few flicks from last weekend. A couple chilly day trips ending with some snow… So Adam brought us to an abandoned warehouse he knew of. Marc got a couple awesome clips in there and a couple nice pictures too, as well as this rail hop by Nick. Still pushing through the cold weather stacking those clips.
Filming’s been going strong into the deep fall, getting warmed up is a little harder but everyone’s still going hard and killing it. Photo chances have been slimming because of the rush to clip up, racing the daylight, but this passed week I made a point to get the photos to post a little update.
Stayed tuned as well as we’re looking into possibly getting some toques made, also, if you haven’t got a copy of the first Business DVD hit me up on Facebook (Ian Fleming, or the Business BMX page) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll hook you up for a toonie or free if you buy a shirt, because we’d like to get the last of these out there.
Filming has been crazy busy and crazy good lately. We just went up to Antigonish to film at St. FX University and around the town, and to visit an old family friend at his amazing house in the middle of no where. Super relaxing weekend, and the clips came out banging at the same time. Everyone killed it, especially Zach Williams, coming out of the trip with a ton of gnarly clips on some awesome setups at that school.
We also met up with some awesome locals that know the town inside and out, who showed us some pretty perfect spots, and taught us how to climb the roofs of the downtown area, useful. Here’s a couple shots from the trip including a couple of Allan, one of the local kids, that I managed to snap in between filming. Awesome time.
Also, be sure to follow @businessbmx on instagram! We just got the account started and will be posting tons of BMX stuff as much as we can.
Just a few flicks from the passed couple weeks. Filming has been heavy lately and things have been banging out. Riley came on a little filming trip through the week and clocked some pretty crazy clips like this tight high speed gap. Also a couple pictures of Harrison doing rowdy Harrison things.
Been working on a lot of things lately so stay tuned! More photos to come.
Every year a few of us go on a filming trip to Montreal to stack clips and party. For the 2013 Business trip we decided to do hit up Quebec city for half the trip on the way down to Montreal, and to hit up QC city for the last couple days on the way home to get last minute bangers. We wanted to make it a little different since this summer the trip will be for Business 2.
Well Quebec city was amazing, and super cool, but unfortunately security was super tight all over the city. Our good friend Matt was in town with some guys filming for a video for The Rise and he felt the same way, so he offered to hook us up at The Rise HQ in Montreal for the last few days of the trip so we wouldn’t have to return to the hostel in QC city like we had planned, which was amazing.
So from there we had a blast, stacked quite a few clips at unique spots in QC city and were off to Montreal, and man, this was by far the best trip to Montreal yet. The guys threw down such crazy stuff every day, the partying was the best yet, and we met so many awesome people and new friends.
Luckily, Daniel randomly bought a disposable camera which was the best idea ever. Some pictures aren’t going to be posted, but thanks to that little camera we have great shots of memories I’ll never want to forget from the best trip I’ve been on.
This is definitely going to be a section to watch out for in the DVD, crazy moves and crazier good times. Can’t wait for next years trip, hopefully with the same crew and more.
Filming for the second Business DVD is still going strong, so I’ve been trying my best to snap some photos along the way. One thing to take note of here is young gun Dustin sending himself over some pretty big stuff that him and I shot yesterday, and he’s only 14!
Taylor Dacey also sent through some pictures of prizes, and more information regarding the Foot Jam that will be taking place on the 20th of July, this is a contest no one will want to miss.
There is going to be 4 best trick format contests going on at The Commons skatepark for the Foot Jam. The locations for this will be the old bowl in the back of the park, the new red bowl in the middle of the park, the whole street section, and the two way. Each location will have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. The judging is based on creativity, going big, and the progression of each individual rider, which means everyone has a good chance of winning. There will be a sticker toss, and there will also be a big prize pack for best rider of the day!
Sounds like an awesome time. Join the facebook group for it ASAP HERE.
Business BMX will also be dropping new tank tops at the jam for prizes or to buy so watch out for those too.
See you guys there!
It’s been raining for about a week in Halifax now. That includes Canada day weekend… which means that we couldn’t have an awesome time filled with biking and adventures like last Canada day weekend. We did however manage to get out for a few hours a couple days and go for little rides. Here’s a couple quick shots of Kyle and Nick at the Spryfield skatepark.
Also, if you don’t live in the area or can’t seem to get a hold of our Skyline T-Shirt, it is now available through our store in Heathered Red and Grey.
Filming for the next DVD is well underway tons of clips have been filmed and the guys are starting to stack clips towards gnarly parts. We’ve been super busy filming, and the downside to this is it’s hard to get the photos out that we’d like to, especially when it comes to stuff that only goes down once. Luckily, the talented Alec Crowell is back behind the lens and will be coming out with us to shoot photos for Business whenever he can. Thanks to Alec, we got this rad picture of Nick nailing a whip out over this railhop yesterday.
I also decided I’d post these couple pictures of harrison I’ve shot in the passed while and have been meaning to put up.
Keep an eye out for many more of Alecs photos, we’re getting out a lot and it shouldn’t be long before we have a dialled photo set to post on here.
Taylor Dacey and Chris Burke are organizing a big jam at the Halifax Commons Skatepark on Saturday, July 20th. Make sure to book the time off work, find a way into town, it will be a super worth while event to make it to. Taylor has been hard on his game and organized a big group of sponsors for prizes, and has been thinking up some wild contest format activities for the jam. It’s going to be a wild time. Also, Business BMX will be sponsoring the jam and you’ll be able to win some awesome shirts and there will be tons of DVD’s up for grabs, along with tons of purchasable merch.
Be sure to make it out to this event, you won’t want to miss it!
We always do our best to take part in the contests the guys over at The Northern Embassy put on. Lately, we’ve been crazy busy filming for the next Business DVD, but we had recently filmed a bunch of great night lit shots, and thought it would be an awesome theme for a five clips video for the embassys contest. So here it is, Business: The Back Shift. Don’t forget to check out and like our new Facebook page as well, and keep an eye out for photo set updates on filming I the near future!
