ONE Video Rochester, NY – Submissions

April 24, 2011

“Here is an edit I put together in January of 2009. All of this footage was filmed for the ONE Magazine blade video which was produced and directed by Conner O’Brien, and released in December, 2008. The edit was only made for the eyes of my friends in the WNY scene, so they could see the clips we filmed in an edit since not all of them made it into the ONE Video. The edit was then released as a last minute bonus feature on “The Best of” DVD which was released and distributed at the 2009 Bitter Cold Showdown in Royal Oak, MI” – Mike Torres. Featuring Steve Bruning, Dan Barnes, Tim Adams, Grant Hazelton, Chris Walker, and Mike Torres.

ONE Blade Life: Going For Pro with Nick Uhas

December 12, 2010

“Where do we go from here? Sounds like a question you ask yourself when you break up with your girlfriend or get caught stealing from your neighborhood Wal-Mart. Well, in this case it’s not that type of question, nor is it that awkward kind of situation (no police or girls involved… okay, there was a girl involved). But it was a question that was on my mind. I’d just landed in NYC, home of many amazing legendary skaters like Franco Cammayo, Billy O’Neill and Alex Nunez. However, I did not intend on moving to NYC at all when I took a job in New Haven, CT, in June. I was plucked from the skating training grounds of Los Angeles to work as a video host for a new Webseries.

The Webseries was to center around the making of a brand-new feature length film called “College Musical The Movie.” I previously knew the producer/writer/director and actors from going to school with them at Yale University. Who you know really is so important. Working as camera man, producer, and host of a Webseries is pretty much a 2x full time job, although I did get to sneak away to the New Haven skatepark every now and again. I would also like to add I was hired for the job because of a skating Webseries Brazil and I put together in Chicago. In fact, I learned entirely about production from working on productions with Brazil. That guy stays busy” – Nick Uhas. Full Stury on the ONE Magazine website.


Sam DeAngelis ONE Photo Journal #8

November 27, 2010

This shot was taken during the Franco Cammayo wheel release session held at Tri-State Skate in Hillburn, NY. As everyone was focused on shop rider and newly appointed Eulogy Pro Franco Cammayo, I noticed Austin Paz lacing some tricks on this bank ramp to quarter pipe. I set up as fast as I could and shot away as he laced this Disaster AO Tea Kettle. (What?!) Austin is a NYC native who has recently moved to Phoenix, Arizona. He is known for his unique style and difficult trick vocabulary. It is sad to see Austin leave the East Coast, but he is always returning to shred the city and show support for the scene. Be sure to check out some amazing clips form Paz in Valo’s new blade film “Valo4Life” – Sam DeAngelis.


Sam DeAngelis ONE Photo Journal #5

“Greg Sturino and I met up with good friend and west coast photographer Jeremy Condamine in the Bronx, then headed out to some spots. We decided to warm-up on this kinked handicapped rail, which is a famous NYC spot located near Fordham University. The rail has been featured in several NYC videos such as “1131,” “Nature ONE,” and “Urban Royalty.” This place is a great warm-up spot, not only because of the perfectly mellow, kinked handi, but also the waxed up c-ledge at the bottom. Most choose to skate this rail from top to bottom, but Greg laced this trick going the other direction. As the rail launched him out onto a large sidewalk, Greg laced this bomb 360. I was able to time the shot perfectly to show the huge air he caught. Shot with one strobe up and left beyond the gate” – Sam DeAngelis.

Josh Diaz of Psyko Clothing publishes his fifth photo journal on ONE Magazine’s website featuring Dave Ngo at the Redhook ledge in Brooklyn, NY. “Well, it was our first day of spring here in New York, and after fabulous weather during the week, me, Jose Disla, Jon Ortiz, Dave, and a few other New York rollers came out to roll at the Red Hook ledge, which by far is one of the best ledges Brooklyn has to offer. After the guys had been tearing it up for about an hour, I decided to take off my blades and set up my gear. It’d been a few months since I’d shot any photos, and for this I was using the oldest of the old — a Nikon d1 that my wife got for me. Just know that this thing was old… about 10 years old. It was the most difficult thing to get used to. But I made it work out. This is the shot that I love the most from the spot, and I hope you all enjoy it. I should be getting my camera back from the shop soon, so thank god, and my wife. I will be out in Santee in the middle of May, so I’ll see you guys on the West Coast soon” – Josh Diaz.


Angelo Ferrer Photo Journal #4

January 16, 2010

NYC has been represented once again via the ONE Magazine website in this week’s Photo Journal. Angelo Ferrer submits his fourth Photo Journal this time featuring a photo and a video of Dave Lang doing a dope gap into a bank. Read the full story on the ONE website. “It has gotten to be that time of the year where skating outside for fun can become a challenge. Getting more than three skaters out at the same time can seem impossible. A simple fall turns into a more painful one. I’m talking about the cold weather. Lately, since it gets dark around 3:30 pm, getting some day shots requires days of advance notice and a keen sense of coming weather patterns. While looking out the window and getting fooled by the blue sky I forgot for a second that it would be freezing, so I started to call skater after skater to see who was down for a productive photo shoot. As I called, emailed and texted it seemed that no one was available, and then Dave Lang appeared on Facebook…

…While taking the shot I never would have guessed that this shot would be so complex in its final stage. Somewhere between the speeding Mack truck and the airplane flying alongside Dave, we managed to pull one of my favorite shots of this year, and for Dave the experiance was great. He loved the feeling of airing into such an intense downslope, and he did more than eight gaps while landing seven of them, each time jumping higher and higher. I’m glad to have somone willing to fly so many times, because I was able to film the picture and create a mini edit of the trick. Keep a eye out for a Dave Lang profile in our next issue, that’s Art of Rolling Magazine 7, to see a extensive, in-depth look into the life of Dave, and witness the hammers he’s throwing down in NYC” – Angelo Ferrer.

Billy O’Neill on Blade Progression via ONE

Billy O’Neil wrote a great article on the progression of skating for ONE Magazine revealing his thoughts and his personal experiences within skating. Check the article out here or just keep reading below. “To watch evolution is amazing. Since I started skating, I have been lucky enough to watch and be part of one of the most progressive and innovative ’sports’ that the world has to offer. During this period of time, rollerblading as we know it went through a vast change, going through innovations in skate technology and trends. Skates were getting better, and skaters were becoming more aware of how they presented themselves. What was once an entire group of guys skating Tarmacs, wearing wide-legged jeans with chain wallets, became something more. The stereotypical ideal of what a skater was supposed to look like became harder to pinpoint. These trends transitioned through a few different phases, and some of your favorite skaters grew into their present day personas before our eyes. Today, I look at what rollerblading has become and I am amazed. There’s more style and diversity than I’ve ever seen. We as a community should be celebrating these things and being proud of rollerblading and how far it’s come and will continue to grow. In my eyes, we are at our peak and continuing to mature and present ourselves better as a community, year by year. We are all a part of that evolution.

ONE Magazine posted up a Blade Life interview with NJ skater Erik Stokely. The interview is a good read but what stood out to me was the photo at the Chinatown up ledge in Manhattan, NY. Photographer John O’Donnell captures Erik Stokely doing a truspin mistrial 360 out at the perfect moment. See more photos and the interview at ONE’s Blade Life page.

Brooklyn’s own Josh Diaz has been featured for his third time in the ONE Magazine Photo Journal. New York has been represented well so far in their photo journal and Josh keeps the trend going by featuring this HDR pic of Psyko team rider Miguel Ramos lacing an AO Top Acid on this relatively unknown Brooklyn spot. “I remembered going to this crazy-looking spot with some skaters from Long Island this summer, and told Miguel about it, so we head out. After two hours in Manhattan traffic we got there and got so upset because there were a whole bunch of trucks parked in front. After long negotiations with the drivers we got them to move the trucks, and they let us skate for a few shots” – Josh Diaz. Read the rest of the article at the ONE Photo Journal page.
