The Photographer Series by Andrew Norton tells the stories behind some of skateboardings most epic images and the dudes who made them.
I feel like the dude at the Sports Illustrated with the 400mm lens is just sort of capturing and documenting. Where being a skate photographer, you’re in the pack.
The Photographer Series: Anthony Acosta
Anthony Acosta tends to focus on the spot. Where people skate can be just as important as what they’re doing. Anthony is the staff photographer for Vans shoes and The Skateboard Mag. He has become known for finding remote or intriguing locations and pairing them with gnarly tricks and angles. When out on a shoot or collaborating with the skater, it is about the bigger picture, the over arching story: the who, when, and where of that specific moment.
