I'm Derek Gardner
I’m not just a dude behind a camera. I’m a person who has experienced wonderful things and met amazing people, who just so happens to record and share it with others! The point of doing so is not to boast, but to inspire and show other people…. If I can do it, so can you. I’ve won photo contests held by Red Bull, Skullcandy, and Bassnectar. I’ve zig-zaged across the country twice (first by car for a few months, then on my motorcycle), backpacked Europe, and won a few free vacations. Some big names in my videos include X-Games gold medalists Tony Hawk, Tanner Hall and Henrik Harlaut, skateboarder Sean Malto, and Jamaican BMX rider A-Wire. However, everyone I highlight in my travels is equally as important and meaningful as the next. My mission is to show people how beautiful the unpredictability of life and living really is. One day you briefly meet someone, and years later you are in another country sleeping on their couch. I’m a dude with a camera, just doing what I do.
