For anyone that really knows me, knows that skateboarding is my everything. It’s what I first identified with. Where I discovered individualism and creativity. Of seeing the world differently. I would spend hours, every day, perfecting tricks. I dedicated everything I had to skateboarding. To be frank, skateboarding was the impetus to my photography. I owe a lot of my photography to studying skateboard photographers and how they captured a shot. It’s not so simple, and like skateboarding, every angle is a new possibility. A chance to create.
Yesterday, the Primitive skateboard pros, came to town. Here are my favourite shots of pros Paul Rodriguez, Nick Tucker, Shane O’Neill, Carlos Ribeiro and soon-to-be-pro, Deigo Najera at Toronto’s Ashbridge’s Skate Park. Cheers! Xo.
