The guys of Blood of the Young at Leeside.

4×5 inches

Thursday, July 19th, 2012


Hey, I promise every now and then I still go skateboarding. This here is an instant print of New Pal Dimitri of Blood of the Young. He and Long-Time Pal TRH were just in Vancouver being international-art-badboys, doing a one night art show/party (details on the event are here!), and I had the exquisite fortune to go skateboarding all day with them Sunday. The proof shot for a B&W portrait of both of them troublemakers.

I spent Saturday racing bicycles, the results of which can be seen here on Canadian Cyclist but if you want to cut to the chase for a nice photo, click there. Because well, really my results were kinda crummy, I was stuck behind a crash in the second last corner. THIS IS HOW LIFE WORKS.

This is what happens to your Vans when you work as a bicycle courier using toeclips and Toshi Straps (still the best toe straps ever).

True story.

I haven’t updated in a weekish. Sorry! Been racin’ and more racin’. Also taking 4×5 instant pictures because, well. I can. Kinda made a purchase my wallet regrets but my heart adores. It looks very much like this. The above 4×5 instant print should be the familiar face of a one Brendon Hartley. Again, if you’d like me to take your portrait, contact me and we can work out some kind of trade or something!

A test shot. Many many more to come. I’m pretty excited. And this test is on the film, which makes it way more rad.

the wrong things at the right times

Friday, March 25th, 2011


I’m on Facebook chat with one of my best friends ever Ian Fenwick, discussing coffee, bicycles, tattoos, trips to Montreal and jobs. And I reminded myself that in April, I’ll have been working two jobs (both, delivering things on my bike) for an entire year. And I guess that is why I went and dug out this photo, taken last September I think? Marking the last time I was able to get away from working and other responsibilities for an entire weekend. It’s really making me look forward to the three weeks I have booked of in June. And my plans include basically what Ian and I are still chatting about on Facebook: coffee, bikes, skateboarding, pals and a trip to Montreal.

It is however unfortunately reminding me of the amount of homework I have to do in a subject that is rather unfamiliar to me. I am basically splashing around a design-based-science-credit class to fulfill my graduation requirements, and finally get a sweet piece of fancy paper with my name on it. Soon after, GLORY.

Oh, and speaking of lurking on Facebook, I found Dylan Doubt’s Tumblr in my newsfeed, and was quite glad to peruse some of his offerings. I’ve always enjoyed Doubt’s photography from inside skate magazines, and he is quite the gentleman to ride a bike or skateboards with.

‘Business Card’ series

Thursday, February 24th, 2011


I have decided I want to give away an entire print series. The print series is titled ‘Business Card’ and the series is infinite. All prints will be hand titled, embossed and editioned. The series is a varied edition, and every print is unique. All the prints are hand printed and developed by me, archival quality is likely, but not guaranteed.

This is an actual artwork/performance piece. I will be giving away prints entirely cost free, with the exception of a one dollar donation for an envelope and stamp. I’d like to involve as many people in this work as possible. If you live/work in Vancouver, please email me, and it’s likely I can deliver a print to you personally, at no cost.

If you do not live in Vancouver, please email me (dylandaviesphoto @ your address, and you can send a dollar via paypal. Or if you like, I can send you my mailing address where you can send a self addressed stamped envelope, not cost whatsoever!

Please feel free to send this to anyone you might think is interested!
