If you ever get the opportunity to go and train in Finland, do not hesitate. Go.

Several times each week, the coaches at Parkour Generations come together to train. Sometimes it is about conditioning, other times it is technique. A few weeks ago, it was exploration.

There were two very good reasons to hook up with Parkour Generations in order to photograph the ADAPT Level 2 course taking place at the end of November. Firstly, this was a unique collection of traceurs gathering for a week in one location.

All hail YouTube!

Ever since Parkour started becoming widespread there has been a wide selection of videos on YouTube. Some are tutorials, some advertise teams to potential recruiters, there are ideas for conditioning progressions, others are documentaries and some are just plain stupid. However, I think it's fair to say that most are training videos or 'samplers'.

Composition: A Parkour Frame of Mind

Authored by Kiell on Tuesday 14

Until writing this article, composition is something that I’ve never really given a lot of thought. There are rarely any conscious decisions when I compose a shot, in the same way that there is rarely a conscious decision of when to pull the shutter. I just know (or at least I hope I do). And my assumption is that other experienced photographers are the same; I feel my way to what’s ‘right’ and in terms of composition, sometimes that’s as simple as making sure I don’t stick something slap bang in the middle of the frame.

Sebastian Palmer and Pawel Okol (www.palmerandpawel.com) are two photographers based in London with a straight forward taste for physical activities such as Dance, Parkour, Mixed Martial Arts, Rugby etc. Below, you can watch a video from the photo session we did together playing a bit with the concept of the feature films Tron and Blade Runner.

Paris with Sticky.

Authored by Kiell on Saturday 12

In October last year I was approached by a magazine and asked if I could make a day trip to Paris to photograph Johnny Sticky Budden. I’ve been photographing Sticky since 2003 and have made some unforgettable trips together. Back in the day, he used to head down to my student house in Birmingham on a Friday night, crash on my floor and then we’d get up at 5am, pick up Blue Devil, and to drive to London to jam with the likes of Kerbie, Asid, Bam, Cable and M2, hitting locations like the Leap of Faith and the Shell Centre.

Empty Elephant

Authored by admin on Thursday 20

The housing estates at Elephant and Castle have been a favourite training location for London’s traceurs for several years. During its early stages, Parkour in the UK was often focused in city centres, both in training and in media representation. In my experience, it’s not that Parkour ever left the housing estates but perhaps got temporarily distracted by the shiny city, before realising that the best terrain is residential, not commercial.

month in photographs...

Authored by admin on Thursday 20

I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed the last month!!! It's been absolutely jam-packed with good people and good energy - vibrant and rewarding to the extreme... So this will be a pretty short post, but the photos may hopefully bring a few smiles to a few faces!
