An afternoon at the DC/Monster Energy Vert Ramp with PLG

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

One of the highlights of my recent trip to California was meeting up with PLG(Pierre Luc Gagnon) to shoot some photos at the DC/Monster Energy ramp in San Diego.   A picture of him helping me get the lighting set and a picture of the frontside air to wrap up the session.

Here are some photos I shot for the Moutain Dew event at the University of Johannesburg on Friday the 15th of March.  Always a good time shooting photos for them.  Everyone skated and rode hard and no one got hurt…  It was a good day.

TK Modise

TK is a young ripper from the south of Johannesburg.  This photo does not serve him justice though, the gap which he is clearing is way bigger than it looks here.  Gap to sketchy bank and a gravel covered roll away and it only took him a couple tries.  His style definitely speaks for itself.

Pierre Luc Gagnon, AKA : PLG.

I met PLG at the first contest in Kimberley in 2011 and had no idea that he was one of the top vert skaters in the world!  Having hung out with him the night before and thinking he was just another dude that worked at the contest and then seeing him skating the following day had me feeling like a bit of an idiot.  Shooting photos with him up on the vert ramp is always a good time and something I always look forward to.  Here are 2 shots I took at the recent Kimberley Diamond Cup contest over in Kimberley.
