The Centerfold, this was one of the prize spots to score
for a skater and photographer next to the cover. This was
my first one and having this shot at this contest was the
top of it all. Chris was a fantastic skater and a really
good guy. I had to be less than 2 feet away from Chris to
get this shot and to do it during a contest takes a lot of
confidence between the skater and the photographer. As a
contest photographer you actually had the best seat in the
house!
