Skateboarding was the first reason I ever got a camera. I asked my father for a camcorder to take videos of my friends one Christmas, and I was fortunate enough to get one. I grew up skateboarding constantly, and as I faded out of skating and started shifting my focus more onto photo/video, I never let go of my love for it. Even now, I sometimes hang out at the skate park with my good friends and shoot photos of them as they put on a show. Here's a collection of some favorites.
