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. 7d

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. 1w

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 3w

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. 4w

jeremypavia The moment after the sun falls below the horizon line happens to be one of the most beautiful times of the day to shoot. It only lasts what sometimes feels like seconds before the night sky starts to take over. No matter how many times I capture that moment, the feeling will never be any less fulfilling to me. This is just another one of the many reasons that I love photography, and everything it stands for. 1mon

jeremypavia As a photojournalist I often times find myself asking people to photograph them simply as an excuse to hear their personal story. No matter how many portraits I shoot of complete strangers, it will always be fascinating to me how open people can be with the right approach. 1mon

jeremypavia Out of the 105 original weekly "TTL"columns that I created, the one with the owner of @treebicycleco was one of my personal favorites. I documented the process of Sam Schulte making one of his signature meals and interviewed him about his 100% raw diet which includes different varieties of meat. It is a controversial topic among many and few truly have what it takes to dive in head first, get educated and make the decision to commit to this lifestyle. I have nothing but respect for a person that can dedicate themselves to a strict diet such as this. If you want to read the article, just google "TTL Eating Raw with Sam Schulte." 1mon

jeremypavia As a photographer, traveling is a huge part of what I do. The feeling of being out in the open with nothing but a clear path and clear mind is something I have grow quite addicted to. When I'm at home, I appreciate every moment of it but when the opportunity comes to go, I'm gone. 1mon

jeremypavia As I was on my way to Santa Cruz to shoot for the next few days I realized that I forgot one of my battery chargers and had to turn around. When I was headed back towards home I noticed a cloud of smoke starting to form and ended up being directly behind a fire truck that was on the way to the scene. Instead of going home, I followed them straight there, jumped out of my car and grabbed my camera. I documented the scene for a half an hour or so, and as I shot photos of the owner laying in the grass across the street with his eyes slammed shut in disbelief I couldn't help but imagine how devastated he must be. It was incredible to watch the firefighters do their best to minimize the damage and take control of the blaze. After I realized I was the only photographer on the scene at the time, I made some calls and headed home to send out some selects for a few media outlets. Oh yeah, and I grabbed my charger too. Instinct over everything is the only way to live. 2mon

jeremypavia Shooting with natural light is one of the things that I love most about photography. Sometimes the lighting is so beautiful that it's hard to explain in words. Recent work with @amyloubris as she takes in the warmth of the afternoon sun. 2mon

jeremypavia This was one of those moments that you can't ever plan for. The sun came out from behind the clouds for just shy of 30 seconds, which provided me with enough time to fumble for my camera and compose this shot. Seconds after I got the photo, the sun disappeared back behind the clouds and the lighting went flat. It is moments like these that will make me forever value still photography and the act of capturing a moment in time. 2mon

jeremypavia Photography at times is entirely centered around a very specific moment and once the moment has passed, you can never replicate it. The constant challenge of being prepared, combined with the ability to anticipate a moment before it happens is something that has drawn me to photography since the very beginning. Breaking down every aspect of a photograph from composition, to lighting, to contrast, to color, to sharpness and everything in between is something I constantly obsess over. It's what keeps me up at night. 2mon

jeremypavia The idea for this photo came about one day at the @xgames years ago during a conversation with @catfishvsthug while brainstorming what would make a good two-page cover photo. It was an honor to take the idea and make it a reality inside of a warehouse in downtown Los Angeles with two of the best riders to ever touch a BMX bike. Both @brettbanasiewicz and @drewbezanson made this happen and at the same time made doing simultaneous fakie wallrides on a couple of 2 x 4's nailed together with no room for error look way too easy. I still can't believe how level their back wheels are even after all of these years. Much respect to them both for supporting the cause and being down to make it happen. It's memories like this that will live on with me forever and always remind me why I do what I do. 2mon

jeremypavia Multnomah Falls is the biggest waterfall in the state of Oregon and drops in two major steps. It is split into an upper falls of 542 feet and a lower falls of 69 feet. Underground springs from Larch Mountain happen to be the year-round source of water combined with spring runoff from the mountain's snowpack and rainwater during other seasons. It is a thing of beauty, and its power is truly moving from up close. 2mon

jeremypavia Back on April 26th, 1895 a woman by the name of Maria Barbella was fed up with her boyfriend refusing to marry her so she did what any sensible person would do and slit his throat ear-to-ear with a straight razor. He clutched his neck with both hands while blood sprayed everywhere. He eventually stumbled and fell into the gutter where he died seconds later. 2mon
