The Skate Mag 58 - The photo issue (apparently)
I always get excited when i see a photo issue has come out, i'm usually dissapointed and this is no different. This is only the second photo issue for The Skate Mag, i didn't see the first one but i'm guessing it was better than this. I think it came out pretty fast after they started the mag, within the first 10 issues anyway, before digital was everywhere. Also the fact that it was a new magazine probably had a lot of the photographers motivated. I don't want to start ranting so here are the very few photos that i liked.
Atiba used to churn out great photos like there was no tomorrow. Always one step ahead of the game his photos were amazing. I really like this one, it's a lot better that the stuff he's been doing recently. This was the best shot in there for me.
Chet Childress is a beast, look at all the shit peeling off the walls. I don't have to explain this photo, the trick is crazy.
Ollie photos are hard to make look bad. People lurking in the shot can sometimes disstract you from the trick, i think it works well here. Plus Jack Sabback is in my top 3 glasses wearing skaters.
Nice work on the Osiris ad Stew!
Thats it for the photo issue, pretty lame, there are better photos in a normal issue. Ah well, maybe in 5 years when they do another one it will be better, maybe....
