Interview : Alex Olson

GR: Tell us a little bit about yourself and where you live.

AO: Well I'm from LA and have lived here my whole life. I'm currently in Los Feliz and I'm 25 years old.

GR: How did you become interested in photography?

AO: I don't really remember when I always liked camera but never knew how to use them but wanted to learn. I feel like ED (Tempelton) got me into it. Being on the road and seeing him shoot photos of everyone I think just made me wanna shoot photos. So I think that's how I got into it.

GR: When you're not skating, you are...

AO: Hanging out with my girl friend or making music on my computer.

GR: Night owl or early bird?

AO: I would like to be an early bird but I'm not and I hate it. I'm a night owl by heart.

GR: Dopest band(s) at the moment.

AO: Well I don't know if I would say "dopest" but a band I like would be Neon Indian.

GR: What's your inspiration behind your videos?

AO: Fuck, just make them because I like doing them. I would like to a music video at one point.

GR: Favorite alcoholic beverage.

AO: That would have to be a beer.

GR: You have $8 in your wallet, what do you buy?

AO: Depends ???? 8 dollars can't get you shit anymore but I guess I would go to a Target and check out the dollar section. A bottle of water would be in there.

GR: Any upcoming tours/projects?

AO: Tours no not really. Project?? The chocolate video and I need to make some projects myself.
