Keith Mew // Vancouver, 캐나다(Canada), Will Pursell Rollerblading / 스케잇힝

This is an image that I took as part of a photoset I am working on called Skaters of the West, hoping to promote the Canadian scene. Skaters of the West is an action shot of the skater showcasing the type of skating they like doing along with a portrait that shows their personality. This image is of Keith Mew from Vancouver, Canada. Keith can throw these super stylish stale 540s over anything. On this day we were skating a broken down, old cement skatepark that is all banks. A crazy looking storm was approaching, so I wanted to capture those storm clouds. I tried to think of who could give me a sick trick in such a mediocre park, and I knew Keith had this one in the bag. He tried it a few times before it started pouring rain but we got “the shot.” Keith works at a custom car detailing shop, and he is very passionate about cars, so we got this portrait of him with one of his favorites. Shot with the 10.5 fisheye. For lighting, we kept it simple and used a sb800 to the camera’s left, held by my girlfriend Lauren (aka the Laurenstand), and a sb800 on the ground, slightly back, highlighting his skates. Triggered with Pocket Wizards. — Will Pursell
