Skateboarding & photography

For obvious reasons, most skateboarding photography focuses on capturing the trick more so than the art of photography. Skateboarding is an excellent subject for photographs though and cameras are definitely a part of the skateboarding culture. Here are some great shots focusing more on aesthetics and creativity, capturing and at the same time contributing to the skate culture.
