By: Van Styles

It has been amazing to see where skateboarding has grown to be. I mean, if you started in the ’70s or ’80s, I am sure it is mind blowing. But for me starting in 1992, when it was the complete opposite of its present day identity, I still have to pause and trip out. From […]

By: Van Styles

Well, 2014 is coming to a close. I know people usually say the year went by so fast when doing a re-cap, but honestly I think time went by at a good pace. Having the good fortune to spend another year traveling and shooting photos with friends, it would only make sense to share with […]

B True :: Plan B Video Premier

By: Van Styles

Last week I attended the Plan B “True” premiere.

Having no […]

Nov 19, 2014


By: Van Styles

Whoa, what a trip. Sorry for the delayed re-cap of our Street Meet in Chicago. Upon returning to L.A., I had to jump into a big move for V/SUAL. We quickly outgrew our humble warehouse/office and needed a new home. Luckily, we found one so I had to do some moving. All went well and […]

The Air Up There :: Aerial Photography with Copter Pilot

By: Van Styles

As someone who loves photography, I am always looking at ways to expand my techniques in the art form. In my mind, a photographer should be able to shoot any type of subject matter that crosses his or her lens. I have had the good fortune to travel around and shoot everything from models to […]

Being able to do what you love is a beautiful thing. Now to be able to share that with friends is even better. So when it came time to pick someone to do a collab with for V/SUAL Fall ’14, I immediately knew I wanted it to be with Asa Akira. She and I have […]

Bring the Rain :: Nicole Mejia

By: Van Styles

While out in Miami, one of my main objectives was to link up with Nicole to shoot for a project. If you have ever been to Miami especially in the summer, then you know it has random storms through out the day. So it wasn’t too surprising that while shooting a set on the roof […]

Abandonment Issues :: Gary, Indiana

By: Van Styles

While out in Chicago, trashhand suggested we go shoot out in Gary, Indiana. Definitely a change of pace from the city life. We drove about 40 minutes out of town and arrived at said city. Now, trash mentioned to me that this place was run down, but I was definitely not prepared for what was […]

Urban Legends :: Shooting Chicago with trashhand

By: Van Styles

This summer was a busy one as far as traveling went for me. Since I am now in my studio, I thought it would only be right to properly re-cap some of my trips. I am going to start with Chicago. I had not been there since cruising through on a skate tour back in […]

Ice Cream in SoHo :: Monica Alvarez

By: Van Styles

One of my favorite types of shoots to do when I am out of town is to just walk around the city – and in that moment take pics with a model. Don’t get me wrong, staying at a nice high rise hotel and working with a girl in that setting has its pros, but […]

High Times :: Alina Li

By: Van Styles

Sometimes in this world of photography, you need to remind yourself it is all for fun and the love. This is supposed to be a art form that makes you happy. In spirit of this ideology, I thought I would post this set from when I had shot with Alina Li. It was the final […]

Directors of Photography :: Dilated Peoples

By: Van Styles

I remember when I was younger and Tuesdays would roll around, I would get so excited. You know new music Tuesdays, the day that record companies/music groups decide to release new albums. For some reason, it seemed like there was so much good stuff releasing years ago. I don’t feel that way today, but then […]

Test Shot :: Toni Collado

By: Van Styles

Sometimes we all can get by with a little help from our friends. That was a very important message The Beatles once said. This was very true the other month when my buddy Daniel Wheatly brought to my attention this idea of shooting a girl by the name of Toni Collado. When I started to […]

Focal Length :: Zeiss 15mm 2.8

By: Van Styles

If you are anything like myself, you are always curious about lenses. I got asked pretty often on my Tumblr my opinion of certain focal lengths. Now I believe to each their own. What works for me for one area of photography might not be the same as the next man, and that is the […]

Fun City Tattoo :: N.Y.C.

Whenever I am out in N.Y. and running around with 13th Witness, chances are we are going to end up at Fun City Tattoo. Located at St. Marks Place in Manhattan, it has become a sort of Cheers if you will for 13th and Jason Goldwatch. It has an amazing vibe to the shop that, […]

Manic Monday :: Jayden Jaymes

By: Van Styles

It’s just another manic Monday. Lyrics written from the popular ’80s song still stand true today. What better way to help us all get on with the start of another work week than some photos with not only my good friend, but The Hundreds. That’s right, Jayden Jaymes is back in front of my camera […]

Jul 25, 2014


By: Van Styles

N.Y. can be a crazy place. With the hustle and bustle of everyday life in a massive metropolis such as this, it is hard not to. But what do you get when you mix The Hundreds, 13th Witness, and a mob of photographers who are ready to hit this urban jungle equipped with just about […]

Monochromatic :: Mercedes Edison

By: Van Styles

Black and white is such a beautiful format. Aside from the classic and timeless feel it has with photography, I find it can be a lot easier to absorb. Without color, I think people can see the picture more directly without having to process the colors one photo can have. While being beautiful, it can […]

Skate Mentality :: Muay Thai

By: Van Styles

One of the raddest things I have seen firsthand is the influence skateboarding can have on one’s life. From their outlook and approach to things. The ability to take that same feeling from skating and then be able to apply it to another interest or part of your life can be challenging, but I think […]

Test Shot :: Slam Dat

By: Van Styles

One of the things I love is the ability to network in real life. Sure, through social media it is always amazing when you sit back and look at how two people link up for a project. But when I had the chance to shoot with Michelle Maturo’s friend Samantha a.k.a. Slam Dat, it came […]

Uprise Skate Shop in Chicago

By: Van Styles

One of my favorite things to do when I get to travel out and about to different cities is stop in at skate shops to check things out. I think from hanging out at a few growing up in the early ’90s is why the idea of what I remember as a skate shop holds […]

Test Shot :: Elizabeth Hernandez

By: Van Styles

There is something to those sayings we hear throughout life. You know: “I was there at the right place at the right time” or “Everything happens for a reason.” Sayings like these proved true while out in N.Y. recently. I had a chance to link up with my pal Elizabeth and shoot. Now her and […]

Cruising with Chelsea

By: Van Styles

With how fast the internet moves, sometimes I forget to appreciate how awesome it is. Sure it has a lot of downsides to it, but it definitely has some amazing plus sides.

I recently had the opportunity to head out to Wetzlar, Germany, to attend the celebration of Leica Camera turning 100.
