The “Free” days were some of the best times (Early 90s). My first ‘pro’ advertisement came in the form of an ad for Surfer Magazine of Brad Gerlach (photo by Steve Sherman) doing a powerslide barefoot somewhere in La Costa. I did this ad on an old Mac IIci that had past through the hands of Ken Block (DC Shoes), and Ted Newsome (TWS / American Misfits) before it reached me. Not knowing too much about color correction, and limited use of Photoshop at the time, I ended up ‘posterizing’ the image to try and give it an old look – kinda blew it out, but without running a proof due to limited funds, it’s what we got! Thanks Ando for giving me the chance to get started!
