I have had awesome opportunities to photograph amazing people. That is my favorite part of this gig – the people. I have also been able to connect with people who committed to creating stuff that is cool, and presenting it to the world with the most pure intentions.
I love families that want to create something more. I feel like Burgess and I are one of them, and it is reassuring to know we are not alone. Josh is a Phoenix firefighter and Kasha has a more than full-time gig at home with two beautiful little kids. They are busy people, but they put so much of themselves into Black Longboards. Josh custom builds all the longboards with top of the line components, often slaving away all hours of the night obsessed with board curvature and other technical points that are beyond my comprehension.
He makes amazing longboards. In his garage. This is the epitome of local business.
I hope you check out their boards, and the web site. Support excellent people doing excellent work.
