My name is Luis Farina and I'm a content creator specialized in Skateboarding and Surfing. I've been working in both industries for almost 10 years. My experiences range from print-magazines, news website, and video content. I'm the Editor-in-Chief for Tribo Skate, one of the major skateboarding media-outlets in Brazil. TS was founded in 1991.
An adventure & action sports image should really make you say "wow'. It should really transmit the adrenaline of the trick and the feeling of the rider. From a technical stand point, everything should be in focus (the rider, the obstacle, and the gear). Preferably, you should be able to see the face of the rider. A camera with a faster shutter-speed is your best bet when trying to eternize a trick on a skateboard.
Photography is a big part of Skateboarding and Surfing. Both sports are really visual, and pretty much the only way to transcribe it is through video and pictures. Working in the industry, we are used to dealing with images all-day, every day. From ads to content on our website, it all includes visual representation of these sports.
