“I’m 17 and I’ve been skating for the past 5 years and shooting for the last 2.
It all began when I’d constantly be bothering my friend to borrow his Sony digital slr, but overtime I realized I really needed my own and once I got it, I was hooked. Spending almost all my free time shooting photos or searching all over the web for tips and strategies.
Nowadays almost my whole life is based around a piece of wood with some wheels and a camera, but I can’t see it any other way. Whether I’m driving down the road and notice a cool looking spot or an interesting subject for photo, photography is always on my mind.
Currently I live in Guelph, Ontario a small town outside of Toronto, and one of the worst things about living in a small town is only having a handful of skaters to shoot with and a limited number of spots. Thats probably why I have such an incredible urge to travel, explore new areas and meet new people.
Even though I haven’t traveled too far, (only to surrounding cities) I love it, and can’t wait to spread my wings and travel this summer. So sit back, take a look at my photos and hopefully this isn’t the last time you hear of me!”

Skateboarding Photo is a monthly “web-mag” dedicated to presenting images and words from emerging, as well as established, skaters / photographers / writers / artists and brands. By promoting the independent nature of skateboarding, focusing on what’s happening just outside of (and often well below) the mainstream, it aims to provide a collaborative platform that encourages high quality contributions from the UK, as well as worldwide, skate community. | SITEMAP | ABOUT | CONTACT
