MIKE BLABAC :: THE ART OF SKATEBOARDING PHOTOGRAPHY

OG skate photographer Mike Blabac has been behind the lens for some of the most memorable moments in skateboarding history. As the former staff photographer for both Girl Skateboards and Chocolate, and the Director of Photography for DC Shoes, his work has taken him around the world, producing some of the most recognizable images in the industry. His recently released coffee table book “Mike Blabac: The Art of Skateboarding Photography” documents just a few of Blabac’s professional highlights, like that gnarly photo of Danny Way jumping the Great Wall of China that is still setting the precedent for skateboarding photography years later. Mike Blabac, our newest weekly columnist, sits down with The Hundreds to converse about his early exposure to skateboarding, what makes a great photograph, and the days of developing film in a makeshift dark room he built in his parents’ laundry room.
