Announcement   For thirty-seven years I've shot the best skateboarders in the world. This shop, full of skate action and skateboarding lifestyle photos, reflects the past (80s, 90s, 2000s), present, and future of skateboard photography. I've been behind the lens documenting key moments in skateboarding. From shooting Tony Hawk, Lance Mountain, Stevie Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Rodney Mullen, and Mike McGill of the Bones Brigade in the eighties to Danny Way jumping the Great Wall of China in 2005, it's been a great ride so far.

I bring you some of my favorite skate shots. It's great when your hobby becomes your obsession and your profession.

Currently offering professionally printed 18x24" prints on Fuji Crystal Archive Paper Lustre paper and larger sizes on wood, metal and canvas. Add this shop to your favorites and keep coming back to see new images.

Enjoy the ride!

About

I have been shooting skateboarding from 1979 to the present and see no end in sight.

I started shooting photos at the Del Mar Skate Ranch in 1979 while I was working there as a worker bee and eventually as the pro shop manager. I had watched the top photographers of the 1970s come through the skatepark with various pro skaters in tow and admired their work in the magazines months after they shot the photos. After borrowing my roommate's camera in February of 1979, I was immediately hooked on shooting. I honed my photographic skills by shooting my friends flying out of the cement bowls over the next few years.

In 1983 I helped found Transworld Skateboarding Magazine, and many of the photos you see in my store were featured within the covers of TWS over my 20 years as Senior Photographer and Photo Editor. My photos were on 60+ covers over that time.

In 2003 I decided to leave TWS with friends and start The Skateboard Mag where I worked until 2016.
I have since left TSM and am a freelance photographer, curator and teacher. I am currently working on a book project of my skateboarding photography.

My skate photos have been featured in magazines, books, and photo shows around the world.

I wanted to share some of my iconic skateboarding photographic images with fans of skateboarding. I hope they can find my shop interesting and helpful and that they can own a little bit of skateboarding history.
