I look back and say at 40+ I am happy to be riding again on my 20” bike after all these years. Just to think I got back on it in January 2014 and I feel great to have come this far and still have so many more goals to achieve and I’ll continue to work at it while having as much fun as I can. My BMX photography has allowed me to be involved in a sport I have loved since I was a little kid and perhaps one day there will be a team that understands my passion for BMX and for what I do both on and off the track and allow me to bring that passion to their team. #olddudescanridetoo
This coming weekend I will be in San Francisco capturing the next stop on the Dew Tour. Some of the best BMX freestyle riders in the world will be throwing it down. Stay turned for more. -VPW

This past weekend I had the privilege of capturing the 2013 Reline Cup series in Fresno Ca. This is where some of top riders on the west coast come to show what they have trained so hard for, Pro’s and Amateurs got down to business and left it all on the track for that coveted Redline yellow plate. I met some new folks and some familiar faces and all in all I had a great time. Until next time keep it upright and rubber side down. -VPW
Over the past year I have spent a lot of time capturing the BMX racing community and traveling to many events throughout Northern California and Nevada. I have captured many great moments and met a lot of great people, the response I have received has been overwhelming and I truly have appreciated the great feedback and new found friends. It is sad to see that the season will be coming to an end and I will miss my BMX family, but I’ll be back next year when it all starts again. In the meantime I will still capture the essence of BMX thorough freestyle and the many events I will attend. Thanks to all who have supported my vision. “Ride hard or Ride home” -VP
Well today I was officially given the green light to photograph the
USA BMX Black Jack Nationals in Reno NV.
See you all there!!
Over the past several years I have thought about putting together a BMX photography book that would look great as a centerpiece on a table or even on a display in a bookstore. So after meticulous thought and study I am currently building it from scratch capture by capture, text by text, so keep your eye out for it dropping on a table near you.
Recently I had the privilege of capturing the Santa Clara PAL BMX state qualifier, and it was a great event!! Coming up next is the South Lake Tahoe BMX state qualifier, see you all there.
