Jeff Z just put up his Top 10 photos of 2015 and our guys, Broc Raiford, Drew Hosselton, and Bill Perry (pictured) all are featured in the feature. All the photos are picture perfect and were in RIDEbmx print mag. Now that’s saying something…
“In terms of coverage, this spot went from zero to 60 in record time. And the resulting trick list is pretty insane. In an effort to shoot the spot from a new/unseen perspective I walked outside the gate and after a little snooping around I came up with this angle. I can’t remember if it was my car or Mike Mastroni’s van that I was standing on to get close enough to the barbed wire, but I know that I just barely got everything setup in time to capture the peak golden hour light before the sun went down behind the buildings behind us. I never like to say never, but I’m fairly confident that I will never shoot a better photo at this spot.” – Z

Huge thanks to everyone that came out last night to watch The Finer Things video at the Lido. Definitely surreal to see if finished and on the big screen. The guys have been busting their asses off for the last 2.5 years and glad to finally have their hard work all wrapped up and in a damn fine DVD that Mike Mastroni pieced together. This photo above says it all.
The video and tees will be shipping out today and will also be available on our shop. Jeff Z from RIDEbmx, and Kyle Carlson from VITAL bmx were also in a attendance at the premiere last night and somehow managed to get up these (RIDE’s / VITAL’s) rad galleries up in the middle of the night after partying hard with all the guys.
“Volume‘s first premiere for their new video The Finer Things went down tonight in Newport Beach, California at the Lido Live theater for a packed crowd of riders, included top pros, industry heads, and plenty of local riders. There has been a lot of publicity leading up to this video, and it’s been well deserved—The Finer Things delivers on all fronts with incredible riding from start to finish, top notch filming and editing, and not your typical, but well suited soundtrack. I already heard a few murmurs of “NORA Cup” and I’m sure it won’t be the last. Huge congrats to Volume, the whole team, and Mike Mastroni for putting together an incredible video. Whatever you do don’t slack on snagging yourself a copy—you’ll be glad you did!” —Z.

Ride just posted BMX photography god Jeff Z’s top 10 photos of 2014, and wouldn’t ya know it, us Volume guys scored 3 out of the 10 with Jason, Raban, and Myself all included. Thanks Jeff, it’s an honor! Hit the link for the rest, here’s Jason with quite possibly the best X-up version of himself (Canadian) ever captured.

Zach with a precision wallride spotted in a new RIDbmx gallery. This could also be considered a rail ride depending on the position of earth when the photo was taken. Check out more at RIDbmx. Photo by Z

I’m always stoked to see when Jeff Z updates his Tumlr from past RIDEbmx magazine articles of our guys. This month, he put two amazing photos up of Jason Enns (above) and Mastroni (after the jump). Which are both amazing raw images, especially w/o text and blurbs around em from the mag. Check out Jeff’s Tumblr here >> more

We just scoped out the new RIDEbmx issue 200 and saw that it has a slew of crazy photos of Volume riders in it. It’s a badass issue with a ton of good photos and interviews too. Be sure to check it out at your local bmx dealer, Barnes And Noble or wherever else you buy mags. TM and creative rider extraordinaire with an insane roller coaster chainjam photo by Jeff Zielinski

A batch of unseen Jeff Z pics hit the RIDEbmx site recently and has up this sick Eric Bahlman. “Eric Bahlman cranks one over while going from the industrial park center sign into the street.” – Jeff Z

Jeff Z is always updating his photo site with new pics from his archives. He just added a couple dope ones of Mastroni and Drew. This one above of Mike was in a couple issues back of RIDEbmx doing a ledge ride to hop w/ steez through the tree. All while Devin Feil looks on from above in the UC San Diego banner.

Jeff Z from RIDEbmx puts up yet another one of his cool Unseen Exposure features that didn’t get used for the mag for whatever reason. Just saw this one of Broc 3’n over a dirt alleyway from the feature. Check out the rest here >

Wanna ask Broc a question? Head over the the Ride site and ask him anything you want! In the mean time, here’s a classic Z photo of Broc baring a big gap in Long Beach last year.

Just got an email from Jeff Zielinksi that he did some updates to his Tumblr photo site and saw Broc’s new RIDEbmx cover pic without the cover blurbs. The scenery in that pic looks amazing! Click image to go BIG.
