If you've ever seen a shot of Danny Way on the Mega Ramp, you've seen a Mike Blabac photo. If you've even just thumbed through a skateboarding magazine in the last fifteen years, you've probably seen a Blabac photo. Blabac has been taking pictures of skateboarding since 1994, and skating since he was a kid. Before signing on with DC in 1999, Blabac shot for Chocolate, Girl, and Madcircle, and before that, he shot for fun. He is as passionate about skateboarding now as he was in the beginning, and that love shines through in his photos. The beauty of Blabac's images lies in their simplicity. Whether he is shooting action in the middle of a crowded city, or a portrait in an empty room, his focus is always on the subject, the composition is always slylishly clean. Blabac is the only photographer in the world who can claim to have his own signature pro model skate shoe. His first book, Blabac Photo: The Art of Skateboarding Photography, was published in June.
