It's Travis Collier's birthday today and we want to wish him the best! To celebrate, Travis put together a rad edit with a bunch of his recent clips. Actually, it has nothing to do with his birthday, but what better day to put the video up! Happy birthday Trav!
Travis Collier just got back from a quick trip out to Japan to judge a contest and sent over a bunch of photos from the trip. "In November I was invited by Hiroshi Uehara, the 430 crew and G-shock to judge one of the biggest BMX contests in Japan. It was BMX flatland, street, skateboarding & breakdance. Shit was amazing! It was set up as a TV show. Felt very compact at first glance, but it was meant to act as an action sports experience in a very intimate setup. Comp was amazing, so was the riding. Thanks to Hiroshi, G-shock and the 430 crew for such a rad week in Tokyo"
Check out this great video with Travis Collier, directed by Mike McKinlay.
Check out our latest ad in Ride featuring Travis Collier. If you have seen it you might be wondering what the deal with the big picturing of Travis' face in the background... Well, Travis and his friend Ryan run Clou Studio together and the owner of Lulu Lemon (a big yoga/apparel company) asked them to create something for the window display of their downtown Vancouver store. Not sure how they came up with the idea, but Travis and Ryan ended up doing huge portraits of their own faces... Pretty funny! Check out a few more pics of the window below.

Hit up Fat Tony's blog to check out a rad 'Behind the Photo' feature where Tony talks about what went into shooting Travis' photo that ran on the back cover of the 2011 Flatland BMX Calendar. The shot turned out super rad and the feature is pretty in-depth, props to Fat on the pic.
Ride BMX released their first ever exposure meter, rating the overall exposure of pro riders based on all their coverage... The chart is super small, so it's hard to see all the details, but check out who slid into the no. 20 spot... That's right, our very own Travis Collier... Look what hard work and a few trips to California can do! Congrats Travis... You are exposuretastic... haha!
