I guess skateboarding and my approach to taking photos are pretty similar. Both take a whole lot of trial and error. Every time I shoot I’m learning and thinking about new ways to do things.
As cliche as it sounds, skateboarding as a whole inspires me. I try to watch and see as much of it as I can, skating still gets me just as hyped as it did when I started. That’s what makes me want to go out and skate and shoot. Also, I feel that the more I see the better I will be at capturing it.
The No Comply Network is a great idea, a really good way to connect with other creatives within skateboarding.
I’m currently working on a small series of “zines” with different themes. The first one should be ready in the very near future.
