For about 4 or 5 years, the most important passion in my life was shooting photos of skateboarding.  Rather than trying to capture “extreme” maneuvers, I was more interested in placing the skateboarding action within the context of the city.  I felt more like an architectural photographer than an action photographer.  However, I was also fortunate to be friends with so many ridiculously talented skateboarders who were finding innovative ways to exploit the urban landscape on a daily basis. – Taylor Fitz-Gibbon
