Shooting skateboarding can suck sometimes. Like yesterday when I headed out to shoot an ad for Quiksilver. I arrived at the ICC in Durban to meet skater Braxton Haine. He was busy filming some technical lines for tv so I decided to get Khule Nia to attempt a drop / gap I spotted. The shot looked like it was gonna be epic. I got set-up (having to trespass to place my flash where I wanted it) and then got Khule to try kickflip the gap. Apparently we sounded off the fire alarm and as a result security clamped down on us before Khule got to land the trick. So now I’m stuck with a cool photo and no where to place it. Well, this is where blogs can come in handy.
