I took this photo while we were up on Kevin Street [Dublin], skating the gap from the roof over the railing to the path. Andy was trying to tre flip over it, but before he could land it the Gardai came and moved us on…
I use a Canon 5D Mark II and some prime lenses to take the photos, and natural light to create them. Often with my skate photos I use some flashes to enhance the mood of the shot. By lighting up something ordinary like a set of steps or a handrail, and having somebody do a trick down them you can create something extraordinary.
