My work in photography has been affected ever since I began training parkour two years ago.
I was given the opportunity to join Rilla Hops on their Europe tour during the filming of their 300% video. We hadn’t brought much money so we stayed in an abandoned building for two nights and relied on the parkour community to show us around. Greg Eckles joined us for a few days, Luis Alkim guided us through Lisbon, Hit the Road showed us about Paris and Phosky’s little brother led us around Vigo.
Now that I’m back in Orlando reflecting on the experience, I hope parkour continues to give me chances to adventure and create work that shows the world places they may not have seen from a perspective they may not know.
