Ever since I was young, I loved skating photography – with the wide angles, frozen action, dramatic sequences and grungy textures. Well, for a promotional photo I took for Orbis ring flash, I decided to use this as motivation to get me one of these shots. Skating photos are a challenge as you have to anticipate movement and stand really close to someone who is moving a wooden board a few inches away from your face. A fun shoot, taking advantage of early sunsets in winter. Special thanks to Matt for being such a willing and daring subject.
