Ethan Fowler’s Sweet Ollie

Behold… An older picture of one of the best gentlemen out there and Broadcast Wheel team rider, Ethan Fowler. Taken by yours truly around 2001 or 2002 in Portland, Oregon. At the time I was all about shooting skating with a 300mm lens which really makes it a little different. It is kinda like shooting wild elephants or lions in Kenya (which I have never done… maybe one day). As you can see I was using some flash slaves given to me by a friend and I really highlighted Ethan’s backside and armpit. Classic. But this ollie off the extension over the hip is one of my favorite skate photos I have taken and brings back good times skating with some good friends. Thats what make skating wonderful.
