jeremypavia Color was one of the numerous improvements made in photography at the turn of the century. Awkward and complicated by today's standards, several workable systems of color photography were available to the rare professional and dedicated amateur willing to cope with the attendant difficulties. Oh, how the times have changed. 1w

jeremypavia I never turn down the opportunity to meet someone new on the street wherever I happen to be. Yesterday afternoon in Venice Beach CJ made sure to introduce himself and then explained to me soon after that he has "weed, speed, and whatever I need." Although he's on parole after some time spent being locked up, he keeps it low key by just being a "middle man" as he calls it. Not carrying anything himself but making sure that if anyone needs a fix, he can make it happen for them through his connections. After telling me a some jokes and sharing a few wild stories he asked for a few bucks for a beer. Needless to say I cruised to the market right down the street and at his request grabbed him a "Watermelon Four Loko." In return he gave me the opportunity to photograph him for a few minutes. To me, this portrait will always be worth more than the $3 that I spent to make it happen. Although at one point while we were shooting he pulled a screwdriver out of his pocket and put it to my neck while he explained how crazy prison is, it is moments like that which stand out to me as a photographer, and the unique experiences along the way are what keep me going. 4w

jeremypavia Sometimes it's easy to get caught up during a shoot and forget to capture the moments in between. At times, it is those exact moments that end up being the most memorable. Go check out @elinafedorova to see a sneak peak from our location yesterday in downtown Los Angeles. And if you know what's good for you, you should follow her. She is a hard working, dedicated person chasing her passion in a new country, and I have nothing but respect for that. New work will be up soon at www.jeremypavia.com 4w

jeremypavia If you didn't get the chance yet, feel free to check out my new portfolio site. It just went live yesterday and the response so far has been incredible. I can't thank everyone enough for the support, kind words and positive vibes surrounding it. As a result I have never felt more motivated than I do right now to keep pushing and moving forward. If you appreciate photography please feel free to spread the word and share the link. Also, I couldn't be happier with the mobile version as well so there is no reason not to give it a look no matter where you are or whether or not you are in front of a computer. But, I do suggest viewing it full screen and taking them all in when you have the time. On to the next one! 1mon

jeremypavia Only three more days until the newest version of my portfolio site goes live. If you want to be on the email list, just DM me your email address and I will add you and get you the initial launch email. I am also going to be doing a print giveaway for anyone on here that wants to be added to the list. On July 1st I will pick a winner at random and send out a limited-run 12"x 8" archival digital-c print. I've been patiently waiting and working behind the scenes getting ready for this and appreciate everyone's support along the way. Anyone who has ever enjoyed my work, commented, sent me emails, or personally told me that, I can't thank you enough. I've never been more motivated to move forward and continue creating. The countdown begins! 1mon

jeremypavia Today is the final day at the @xgames and that means another year in the books as the BMX Researcher for ESPN. It's been an honor to work alongside such talented riders over the years. In between events I had the chance to shoot a few photos and this 360 turndown is one of my favorites from the week. Huge congrats to @chris_doyle22 and all of the rest of the guys that snagged a medal and a piece of action sports history. Until next time! 2mon

  •   t_diddy666 I think there are some homeless people that actually enjoy being homeless. This guy does not look like one of those people. I wonder if a million dollar a year salary CEO ever loses sleep over something like this. I bet it's the ones with too much pride to share their stories are the ones with the saddest stories to tell 2mon

jeremypavia The pipeline operator that is responsible for the recent oil spill in Santa Barbara, California has been cited for 175 safety and maintenance infractions over the past decade. They have paid around $115,000 in fines for those infractions over the years. Keep in mind they netted nearly a one billion dollar profit in 2014 alone. Hopefully all of the people in power that share those profits are enjoying their Memorial Day, and the freedom America provides them. What's the harm in 105,000 gallons of crude oil being spilled into the ocean, ruining a beautiful coastline, and killing helpless wildlife? I guess those numbers mean nothing unless they have a dollar sign in front of them. 2mon
  •   johnyamc I work offshore, it's horrid the way some places treat the environment they work in. 175 infractions is absolutely mental! He should have been kicked off long ago. 2mon

jeremypavia In July 1888 Eastman's Kodak camera went on the market with the slogan "You press the button, we do the rest." Now anyone could take a photograph and leave the complex parts of the process to others, and photography became available for the mass-market in 1901 with the introduction of the Kodak Brownie. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Honolulu, Hawaii April 3rd, 2015. 3mon

jeremypavia As a photographer there is something so satisfying about seeing your work published that its almost hard to put into words. I can't remember anything I've ever wanted more in life. It has been over a decade since I was first published but there is something about this one that just feels right. Thank you to @seanricany for letting me document his madness. Thank you @ridebmx for seeing something in my work, and thank you to anyone who still buys magazines and books and understands the true value of print.

  •   cinemuck Just saw you guys on TCU TV and it's really motivated me to keep pushing though! You guys are all such an inspiration to me. It kinda saddens me that a lot of the younger generation doesn't really realize that someone is standing being the camera. Grabbing the best possible shot or trying to. They are completely focused on what they see and not what they don't see. I hope a lot more people see that discussion and look at everything from a different perspective! 3mon

jeremypavia Sometimes getting lost is the best way to find yourself. I feel as though there is something very therapeutic and calming for me when it comes to photography. I can truly say that I feel the most comfortable with myself and who I am as a person when I am behind the lens. It's hard to explain but there are times when I'm shooting and it is almost as if the world stops, and nothing else matters at that moment. My life revolves around those very moments, and as time passes I value each one more than the last. 3mon

jeremypavia I will be working on all new original BMX content in the next coming months and look forward to contributing to some new outlets along the way. @ericlichtenberger with a wild fence ride to pop out while filming for his part in the new @strangerco DVD "No Hype." It was filmed and edited by @mrogoish who killed it behind the lens and gave the whole Stranger crew a solid sense of identity in the process. 3mon

jeremypavia What you are looking at here is the inside of Mike Aitken's 1979 Trans Am. He happens to be one of the most stylish and influential BMX riders of all time and is a huge part of the reason why I am the rider I am today. One of the most surreal moments of my career so far would have to be having the opportunity to interview Mike at his home in Utah a few years ago for @soulbmxmag issue #79. After looking up to and idolizing his riding since I first saw him in all of the magazines as a young kid with BMX dreams it was crazy to sit in the passenger seat and do some burnouts with the man himself. Thank you Soul, and thank you Mike for being the legend you are. Often imitated, never duplicated. @nightwolfslc 4mon

jeremypavia In six days I spent twelve hours flying 5,000 miles across the Pacific Ocean, saw three different Hawaiian islands, photographed an 80,000 ton cruise ship inside and out, shot nearly 8,000 photos, met some new friends, shared a few smiles, snorkeled alongside some mesmerizing fish in Kona, worked way more than I slept, ate some delicious food, made some lasting memories, and had an entirely new experience that I won’t soon forget. My cameras have taken me on some amazing adventures over the years, and I can’t be more thankful to be able to say that. 4mon
