SEATTLE CITY MONTAGE TWO

PUBLISHED November 18, 2014

We got so lucky with our time in Seattle, only a handful of rainy days in a city notorious for its grey and wet weather. We had sun nearly every day and it was never really hotter than 30°C / 85°F. Security was harsh but we prevailed and came through with a good amount of footage. Check out some of Seattle’s heaviest hitters skate around downtown and its outlying neighborhoods. Here is montage number two from our two months of summer in Seattle.

City skateboarding is hard. It takes a special breed of skater to purposefully skate spots with shitty ground, cracks in the ground, huge security guards, or any of the other obstacles that might stand in the way. Joel and Ryan personify street skateboarding with an appetite for the weird, wild and photogenic. While some prefer perfect concrete, designated areas and obstacles that were meant to be skated, these two are prime examples of the guys that keep street skating where it started: IN THE STREETS!

FEATURED PHOTGRAPHER WILLIAM SHIELDS

PUBLISHED October 28, 2014

Street photography and skateboarding are much alike in many ways. You move around the streets and try and find arrangements of people and things that catch your eye, state your opinion, make you laugh, make you cringe, and make you think. Will Shields is a skater who has been experimenting with cameras ever since a family friend left a digital camera at his New Hampshire home nearly 15 years ago. He is quick on the shutter and has been developing his style and perspective over time.

SEATTLE CITY MONTAGE ONE

PUBLISHED October 27, 2014

Skating in Seattle is not always easy. There are 200+ days of rain annually. This wet fact also means that Seattle boasts some of the roughest ground in America.

Good thing real street dogs know that no one or nothing short of a PD badge will stop us from getting a clip.
