While Digging Through Old Skate Photos For My Book Gems Come to Light

While Digging Through Old Skate Photos For My Book Gems Come to Light

I have been working on my book feverishly for the last two years and I keep unearthing Photo Gems from my Garage Archive. This powerful photo of Natas Kaupas came to my light table and I did a quick dupe of it with my Macro lens. I ran it on Instagram and some of my followers went crazy, they had never seen it before. If anyone is seriously interested in purchasing a print, let me know and I will get it scanned. Shot in 87 in San Diego. Photo: Grant Brittain

Continuing The Beating Of The Dead Horse

I have noticed a lot of Skate Photographers going overboard with Photoshop lately, so much that it's kinda gross! I started shooting digital photos...

The Holy Trinity of Street Skating

I was very lucky to have been around at the time that Mark Gonzales, Tommy Guerrero and Natas Kaupas were forming what we know as Street Skating. I was fortunate to have been invited into their creative studios out in the streets. Thank you Guys!
