Tony Hawk Goggles Portrait 1984 Del Mar Skate Ranch Photo
I shot most of my 80s skate photos of my friends (like Tony Hawk) and the hottest skateboarders of the day. Thousands of rolls of film ran through my Nikon and I honed my photo skills daily at the Del Mar Skate Ranch where I worked at the snack bar selling Cokes and Twinkies during the day and sleeping on the pool table at night. I was pretty much living the skate dream back then. I bought these welding goggles in 1984 at a yard sale for $5 and got Tony to pose in the bottom of Del Mar Skate Ranch's Kidney Pool, he had no idea why, but I knew that it would look cool in 34 years.
