Burnout: Sam Smyth


These people are beautiful individuals. They deserve to have their portraits taken and admired by others. I’ve shared incredible moments with all of them. It is my pleasure to capture some moments, and share them with you.

Keep up with Sam on his website: http://samsklub.com and Instagram: @samsklub



This is my friend Brandon, and he is the strongest person I know. Undefeated in arm wrestling.


Beauties and Beasts. Dice game for American cash on Swedish soil.


BA in Hawaii, big deal.


Tony and Trix of Bad Shit, after opening for Dre Dog.


At age 12 I was robbed at knifepoint here, for my Gonz board. 24th and Mission is safer these days. Rick ices the ankle.


Sprinkle me, mang. Baby in back got a pink DSLR to match her outfit.


Alex and Brad, Tampa Nitrous Pro Invitational 2013


Barcelona, 2012. R.I.P Duncan “Pollito” Perez.


Hewitt lends Robbie shade for a Smith. Beauty and The Beast 3.


Tershy gets lined up in Nicaragua.


BA and Spike discus New York in the summer time.


Childhood friends done good. Fisher-price My First Private Plane.


By All Means Buttery. Jeron Wilson. My second private plane.


Stevie Perez can “lay nest” anywhere. Kind of surprising Flaco stuck as his moniker, because Sleepy is also a popular Latino nickname, and equally on-point for Stevie.
