Growing up skateboarding, I first got in touch with action sports photography through print magazines. Some photos were surreal and aesthetically really pleasing, as so many subjects were combined into one photo. You could look at them for hours on end. Especially photos in urban settings with impressive architectural backgrounds, those fascinated me. Photography is an evolving art. It will never stand still as the medium changes over time. Especially now, in the time of social media, photography tends to get real faster and just raw. Single shots are not as predominant anymore, and photo and video seem to be merging into a new world of impressionism.
