These photos are some of my favorites. These photos could have been taken the day I got my camera up until yesterday. I will be explaining why I like the photo in a short sentence or two below the selected photos.
I love this photo more than any of my others. This was taken over the summer in Pennsylvania at a camp called camp Woodward. I have been to the camp many times before and this summer was different. I was really amped on this shot because a couple years before I had taken another shot like this but this turned out much better. It was taken right at sunset and the background looks amazing and I'm very thankful that the shot turned out good.
This photo is really cool from what I think. This was the first day that I figured out how to use my fisheye and it happened to be at Camp Woodward. It was the perfect place to learn how to perfect my shots. This a 5Boro Team rider that was a visiting pro at the camp and I was lucky enough to be able to take his photo of this perfectly dipped backsmith grind.
This photo was of one of my best friends, Grayson Beal. He has an amazing style and he shows it here with a crazy hardflip. For those of you who dont skate its a hard flip hence the name. I really like this photo because of the lighting. Everything is bright except the edges, and because he is wearing a white shirt it really adds to the photo.
This photo like many of the others was also taken at woodward. This is Tyler Hunger and he can skate, extremely well too. Here he is doing a crail grab where you take your back hand which for him is his left hand. And with your back hand you grab the nose of the board and it looks like this. I also really like this photo because it shows how he tweaks it to the side while he's doing it.
This photo is a more recent photo but it stands out to me. This skate (Andrew Johnson) is considerably older then most of the people I skate with. He kills it for someone who's not 14. He did land this front feeble with ease and it was crazy because he said he didn't like how his arms looked in the photo so he went back and did it again.
This photo of Grant Stavas doing a clean backside tailslide is on here because this is just an extremely hard trick and he looks like he's doing it with no effort. The shirt is also something to look at, a teenage boy wearing a I love JB shirt. Don't worry it's not the JB as in the singer.
This picture is of my friend Austin Bland doing a backside feeble at Camp woodward. This rail is perfect for an 8 stair and this was just one of his warm up tricks. I love this photo because of the sun and how its under the rail and almost leaves a silhouette of him.
This is a video about the last days of Progressive Skatepark. It was the best skatepark in Georgia and we will all miss it. R.I.P. Progressive!!
This picture is of one of my best friends, Grant Stavas. He is doing a tre flip at at local park called insanity. What makes this picture one of my favorites is how comfortable he looks while doing this trick. He also stands out so well because he has on simple colors, nothing flashy, the white contrasts perfectly with the black ceiling.
I know what your thinking, why is this on here when he obviously didn't land the trick. This is just a really cool shot and it shows that skating does have its consequences. Dylan right here was trying a front 50-50 and well, he messed up. The look on his face is what always gets me, he knows that he's messed up. He knows that this is gonna hurt. This just proves that not everything comes easy.
This picture was taken on the last day of this park. It had been a while since we had all been up and we all had some tricks we had to land. Blue (in photo above) is doing this trick for the first time. This was one of his first attempts and it was perfect. I really like the quality of this photo because it is not taken with a fisheye or and crazy lighting. All I did was sat down, pointed my camera, and clicked.
This photo is not of any of my friends, actually I never even heard of this guy before the day I shot this. He was a team rider for the shoe compant Vox and they were having a demo/competition at the Kennesaw Skatepark. I noticed he was trying a feeble 180 and I was sitting in a perfect spot to get the whole rail, the filmer, and him.
