In Focus – Moto Shibata

An event like the Vert Attack X in Malmö, Sweden always leaves that vert skateboarding “buzz” in your mind and body for many days after it’s all over. It’s part of the magic of skateboarding and especially for skaters who at one time in the past walked into a vert ramp for the first time and started to ride it. You never forget it and you just want to keep doing it. Read more

Skateboard Photographer Andre Magarao

Andre Magarao

Where are you currently located / living?

I live in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I was born and raised here.

How old are you and how long have you been involved with photography?

I’m 32. I got involved in photography when I was pretty young. My dad had this Pentax K1000 and I started to play with it when I was 15 or so back in the film days. I did a few photography courses back then but for some reason I kind of drifted away from it for a while. And then maybe 4 or 5 years ago I found photography again and have been really stoked on it ever since.

Some say it’s too bad, some say you should have tried this, tried that and you guessed it, the list goes on. And event then there will always be that one photographers that should have been included…the good thing about doing a project you started yourself? You don’t have to adhere to goals, rules and boundaries set up else where. And that’s one big part of the fun. Read more
