John Gibson Early Released FS Air Del Mar Mid 80s
John "Tex" Gibson is one of my all time favorite skaters, and I still remember when Strople and Wally introduced him to me when I worked at the Del Mar Skate Ranch. Style is talked about a lot, and Tex is the epitome of Style. I shot this early released frontside air at DMSR in the mid-1980s, and it's perfect on John's part. It is shot with a Nikon FM2 and 16mm Nikkor fisheye lens. This was way before digital photography and Photoshop, so my exposure and lighting had to be spot on.
11 x 14", 16 x 20", 18 x 24" printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper Lustre paper. Lustre is the finish style between glossy and matte.
Photo is made to order and signed by me in black Micron pen in the lower right and with title of photo in lower left in the white border and shipped in a thick as a brick cardboard tube.
