What's up everybody. So I guess Im a fan of good images turned photographer. I actually bought my DSLR so I could work on a website, but ended up taking over 20,000 images that year. I feel like I've grown a lot and I am figuring out what I want to do with a camera. I spent 2012 concentrating on Motocross and did some work for a Pro Team. It was an awesome experience and I am grateful for the opportunity. These days I want to do more personal work and focus on Commercial/Product photos. My acclaims thus far: 2 designs in Road Racing World magazine (Abe Stacey) 1 photo in Next Moto Champion ( AJ Catanzaro ) http://500px.com/photo/4052395 Marketing/Promo photos for the LWR motocross team FSTOPPERS Photo of the Day http://fstoppers.com/potd/logan-stokes and a few nods from brands I hope to work with in the future. I don't want to leave out how awesome it is to have a photos go "Popular" on here. :-) Lately I have really enjoyed going back to rework old photos at my current skill level. If you made it this far I appreciate the attention, enjoy your stay. Oh, and if you need me. email@BLAKE.is Thanks again. Blake Johnson a.k.a SkinnyCanDraw

What's in a Name

Published July 26th, 2011

Well it's obvious that most photographers use their own name as their business. Well, I didn't want to be just another _______ photography. Actually there is more to it than that. In early 2010 I was asked to come to a race with some friends that had a sport bike race team. I had been hanging out there for months on occasion after a good word from a long time friend that was part of the team. I ask what I need and when they are leaving and the excitement begins. I had never been to a pro AMA race and I was going to be in the pits with a team shirt on. The weekend turned out to be awesome even though we didn't finish up front. Over the coming months I attended other races and became the media guy for the team. We took a long road trip from the east coast to Utah for a race weekend. Now for people who don't know, race tracks often have different types of tracks in one location. It's kind of a bonus to be able to go ride racing level go-carts after a weekend of work at the races. ...
