WILLIAM SHARP @williamsharpimages


William Sharp began taking surfing photographs in southern California in the early seventies. and was quickly drawn into the nascent skateboard scene, shooting friends emulating surfing moves on pavement. By 1975 he was brought in as a staff photographer for the magazine Skateboard World. During the next five years he documented the meteoric rise of the movement, capturing thousands of photographs along the way. Back in the Day features hundreds of Sharps astounding photos from this era, the vast majority of which have never been seen before. The work is priceless, not only for its documentary value, but for the beautiful and poetic images captured and later developed by Sharp himself (many in black and white). Pipes in Arizona, aqueducts in California, pools all over the place, the locales and images must be seen to be believed.

DAVE SWIFT @daveswift01


Dave Swift has shot some of the most iconic photos in skateboarding. The legendary skateboarding photographer was an editor at Transworld during skateboarding’s boom, and he even started his own monthly publication, The Skateboard Mag which ran for about 14 years.

ANTHONY ACOSTA @aacostaa


Anthony Acosta tends to focus on the spot. Where people skate can be just as important as what they’re doing. Anthony is the staff photographer for Vans shoes. He has become known for finding remote or intriguing locations and pairing them with gnarly tricks and angles. When out on a shoot or collaborating with the skater, it is about the bigger picture, the overarching story: the who, when, and moment.

DEVILLE NUNES @devillenunes


Born to a lawyer father and a circus performer mother, skateboarder and photographer Deville Nunes had already lived in five countries before he started skating in his teens. All these years later, he’s not only team manager for the iconic Powell-Peralta, but also shoots photos for the company, with his picture of Brad McClain pulling his signature tweaked back foot rock-and-roll at LES in New York – in my humble opinion – one of the best skate photos of all time. – VICE

RAY BARBEE @r.barbee


Ray brings some unique perspective to the art of black and white film photography that he has brought to skateboarding over the past 30 years. A self- described “jack of all trades, master of none” Rays seamless approach to capturing a moment, nurturing the image through the development process, and bringing it to fruition in the dark room makes his photographs as humble and honest as the man behind the lens.

RAY ZIMMERMAN @mrzzz


Ray Zimmerman is a photographer and lifelong skateboarder. Ray credits skateboarding for providing the spark to his 30 year career in commercial photography. He says he’s come full circle. Over the past decade Ray has combined his two passions and has again focused his camera on skateboarding. His work has appeared in all the major skateboarding publications, many film documentaries, books, art shows, and even The Smithsonian Institute. His client list includes Nike SB, Vans, New Balance, ESPN, Red Bull, Antihero, Spitfire, Bones and Independent Trucks to name a few. On any given day you’ll find Ray on his skateboard with his camera. He laughs at the idea of slowing and when asked “When will you stop?” He responds “When the wheels fall off.”
