Skater x Photographer - Creating Your Own Media.

 Photos Tiffany Williams  / Skater Sari Simpson




Not everyone has Thrasher or Transworld Skateboarding beating down their door to do photo shoots with them, so we think that encouraging girls to create their own media in skateboarding is key.

One of the best ways to make this happen is to find a photographer with a common interest,  whose style you like, and who is willing work with you.  Have them team up with you and your friends to create some imagery that you can all post on your social media sites.  Most skaters also need shots quite often for their sponsors, so this is a great way to accomplish that.

Australian skateboarder Sari Simpson, has been teaming up with her photographer, Tiffany Williams, for a couple years now. Tiffany has shot Sari at practice sessions, comps and they also collaborate on doing shots that are still skate related, but a bit more editorial in feel (like some of the shots above).  They seem to have a bond, work well together, and each of them gets somthing out of the day that helps their respective careers.

Tiffany even shot the Bowl-a-Rama comp for us this past year because we loved the shots she had done of Sari, and it helped us feel comfortable that she came complete with a great skater recommendation! 

Show us who you team up with, by tagging your photos #girlisnota4letterword on social media - we'd love to see them!
