    The Dynamic World of Skate Photography, Kingsley Attwood.

    The Dynamic World of Skate Photography, Kingsley Attwood.

    New Zealand based photographer, Kingsley Attwood has made his mark on the skate photography world with his moody and action filled shots. 

    Kingsley's unique style of skate photography has been formed by his continual search to capture the action from unique vantage points, a place where no one else would think of, or a location where no one in the crowd would be able to see the action from. This along with his preference for black and white imagery, allows him to capture fresh and unseen perspectives.

    In this episode Kingsley joins Canon New Zealand host Ben Journee to chat about his creative journey, the importance of storytelling, how to get your images in a magazine, and what we can all learn about the dynamic world of skate photography.

    Enjoy!
