I was with [my daughter], heading to Origami Records on sunset (Thurston Moore there), and had parked the car on Glendale heading north (on the east side of Glendale, in front of, or just near, a stretch of small store), just a bit south of the sunset overpass, and ran back a bit to take the photo: looking east.

The skate photos I shoot are almost always a collaboration between me and the skater.  So yes, they are usually set up to some degree.  When we get to a spot, if I’m not skating myself, then I’ll be snooping around looking for interesting angles while simultaneously talking with the skater(s) to see what tricks they are interested in trying.  Then I’ll envision the trick in my head and try to get an appropriate angle for that trick, which also places that trick within the context of the urban space.  Depending on the lighting and the location, I also sometimes will shoot with two external flashes which are linked up via radio transmitters.  This freezes the action in low light, but can also serve to emphasize the skater within a scene. – Taylor Fitz-Gibbon

Final shot tomorrow and see the whole series here.
