Tom is an extraordinary skateboarder. His bag of tricks is just completely different than the average skateboarder in Munich. I thought about this metal tree for a long time, but it was not easy to incorporate it into a skate shot that wouldn't look boring, trick-wise.
Since the tree is missing leaves I thought it would be nice to work with color gels on the flashes. Tom had the perfect trick for the shot, a handstand pogostick.
