A man attempts to slow life down a bit outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.
Cold calls rarely yield anything other than some tedious follow-up emails and d-grade photos.
This wasn’t one of those kinds of cold calls though, thankfully. Cameron Strand was sent our way by MC part-of-the-furniture Andrew Peters, and Peters don’t so sub-par skate photographers. Here’re 16 of the A-grade offerings from the Michigan native. Enjoy.
Oscar Candon back-noseblunts into the light somewhere in Canada a while back.
Tre Williams is one of my favorite skateboarders. Look him up and see for yourself. This was a few days ago while Tre was enjoying a rarity in LA: a new skate spot.
Leo Romero watching the session.
Tire tracks in a now slightly-flooded dry lake out near the Salton Sea.
My favorite view in Southern California. Note that this is 45 minutes away from downtown.
Watching Lizard King skate is beyond entertaining. This spot is in between two highways which made it even more fun.. and stressful.
Barcelona and it’s ever-plentiful “spots”. Derricke Nua backside flips just for the photo.
Probably the most Californian skate photo I’ve ever shot (I’m from Michigan). Jack McNulty – switch ollie.
Lance Hakker beginning a line with Jordan Taylor, who recently went pro for WKND.
A foggy morning in Austria a few years ago while on a snowboard trip with The Interior Plain Project Snowboards.
Leo Valls has the ability to make seemingly boring or not “real” tricks look amazing. This back smith scratch is a prime example.
It’s always a blessing when your friends have accessible roofs in downtown Los Angeles. Nate Greenwood kickflips from above.
Nick Merlino running up for what is actually a massive gap but I somehow found this part of the trick more enjoyable.
During the filming of Ty Evans video We Are Blood, we had to shoot part of it on top of the Sears building in East LA. While they were filming on the other side of the building, I borrowed Oscar Meza to make this above shot on a handrail, a reality.
