Location, Location, Location!
What's up Brap Haps junkies! Jake Ashcraft here or as Metzger calls me, "The Ashcrafter"... I prefer "Jake Dog The Fotog". Ha-ha, nonetheless I have some sick photos for your viewing pleasure.
Living in So.Cal., notably Temecula Valley, us photographers sometimes take for granted the fact that 90% of the industry resides within a 20 mile radius. I can literally look out my bedroom window and look straight across to Metzger's house. I can drive 2 miles from my house in either direction and on one end we have the legendary spot where many of videos and mag spread shots were taken, Manny's house. In the other direction we have Julian D'usseaus' house. How sick is that? I can drive 5 minutes from my house and shoot photos of some of the top FMX guys in the industry. So sometimes I think of the bros and fans alike that live in BFE North Dakota and wish that one day that could perhaps meet one of their favorite riders. Well, I take that to heart and try to produce images that bring them just a little closer to catch a glimpse into what it may be like if they were privy to such awesome resources.
