Owens is the man. Check out an interview with him about his new gig at TWS HERE
This shot is by Jaime Owens from the Blind Video Days 20 Year Reunion shoot we did for Skateboarder where we got the cast of the iconic skate video together to reminisce about shooting Video Days and skateboarding in the ‘90s. It was an awesome experience with one of the heaviest line ups I’ve ever been around and I’m pretty sure it was my first and only time meeting Gonz.
The shoot took place in a big photo studio that’s used mainly by automotive magazines and like many studios it looked the walls had some natural transition. As soon as we were done shooting, Gonz threw his board down and went for a fs ollie up the wall, came down and broke through the thin transition. The guys in charge of the studio freaked out and said it was going to cost five grand to fix. Gonz scooted right out of there and I’m pretty sure it ended up being a much easier fix, but all in all it was a good first time meeting Mark.
