The Photographer Series by Andrew Norton tells the stories behind some of skateboardings most epic images and the dudes who made them.

The best photos I’ve got are a hair between a complete failure and a complete success. I mean, that’s the thrill of it.

Mike O’Meally is an Australian photographer whose recent work is based on a lot of natural light photos. His approach is an oddity in the skating industry, which usually relies heavily on strobes to arrest the movement. His pared down, simple approach lets the skating do the talking and relies more on interesting composition rather than bells and whistles.

What camera I used doesn’t really matter – it is about the moment of being there. Of knowing when to take your hands off of it a little bit and let it happen on its own.
