Tour life: Jeremy Stephenson (Part1)

Jeremy Stephenson is not just “a photographer”. He was the key staff photographer for Be-Mag, his pictures have been published in almost every blading magazine. Your favorite company has most likely hired him to shot adverts for them and he has had more cover-shots than most photographers will probably ever have.
Not only is he an awsome photographer but he also distributed Be-Mag and Kendama in America, all whilst traveling the world shooting for that next cover shot. He is the kind of person you wish you could hang out with more often. He is one of the friendliest and down to earth persons you will ever meet. Who else could be better than Jero for our first “Tour life” feature. This is the first part of three part series, showing skate pics and snapshots that he has captured over the years traveling all over the world. We are proud to present an insight into the world of one of the most skilled people to ever pick up a camera in our industry, Jeremy Stephenson.

When I first got the email about contributing toward the “on the road” article, I was a little bummed because the hard drives with all my shots are on the other side of the planet right now.  I’ve been in Asia for about 7 weeks, and won’t be back home for a while.  The more I thought about it, I realized it was probably MORE appropriate to make this type of article while away from home.  Even though I don’t have the full archive here, it’s a good excuse to search through the laptop that travels with me, and see what photos I can find hiding inside.  I found a lot more than I expected to. – Jero
