Sebastopol, CA 2008

Sebastopol, CA

I started going through some photos from past trips. I am finding that I shot so many photos on the trips, that a lot get overlooked, and never see the light of day. I am also finding that I like a lot of images more NOW, than when I originally went through them after the trip.
This shot is from the backyard of Gerald Bybee during a trip to San Francisco a couple years ago. Gerald is a very successful photographer and pioneer of digital imaging/editing. He moved out of SF and now lives on a vineyard (like I said, successful).

Labor Day: Matty Coles Preview

Matty Coles is getting an article in next month's issue of SLUG Magazine. Today was Labor Day, and boy did we put in some labor. Moving concrete slabs and building make shift skate spots is not easy work. It was all worth it. We some good stuff.
I haven't had such a fun and creative skate shoot in a long time.
Thanks for the hand Cory, and thanks for the determination and persistence Matt!

Greg Hunt x The Skateboard Mag

I got an email a few days ago from Greg Hunt asking permission to use the portrait I shot of him for his blog roll photo at
Greg makes incredible skateboard videos including the newest Alien Workshop video, MINDFIELD, and the The DC Video.

Photos of me, by Sam Milianta.
Skating the 3 up 3 down in The Mission, San Francisco.
The glass broke on one of my frames in the shipping. Luckily we got to San Jose early enough for me to go get new glass. This is the Empire 7 Gallery, and Jai Tanju, who organized and curated the show.

FACT: Sam processes his own black and white film faster than you process your RAW digi.

sagebrush and salt

Anyone familiar with the "Tree of Utah" located out by the Great Salt Lake near the Bonneville Salt Flats? It is an enormous sculpture of a "tree" that has balls at the top... anyway, the point is this: I saw a photograph of this sculpture and the photographer's description gave the history of the piece and then basically called it ugly, but then she said "The sad thing is that this tree is the only thing for hours worth photographing". My jaw dropped upon reading this. I couldn't believe such a statement would be made by a "photographer", and a landscape photographer to boot. Apparently she doesn't think the Great Salt Lake or the Salt Flats are "worth photographing".
WOW. I'm offended.
Well, here are some more photos of things not worth photographing. Enjoy.
