daveswift01 In the early days of The Burnside Project you could regularly find new terrain and builder/master planner Mark "Red" Scott testing it out. This shot took place on my first visit to Portland in the summer of 1992. #5dayblackandwhitechallenge i challenge @atibaphoto @jgrantbrittain @seutrinh @aacostaa and @blabacphoto to dig up some masterpieces from the file cabinets. #skatephoto #skateboarding #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #theskateboardmag #burnsideproject 1w

daveswift01 So I almost missed wishing @twistthewrist a Happy Birthday! Damn it's been good watching you go from small Grom to full grown human skateboard shredder. Here's to many more good times. #skatephoto #skateboarding #theskateboardmag #daveswift #tomremillard #wsvt #washingtonstreetskatepark #diy 2w

daveswift01 Can't say enough about this guy @parts One of my all time faves. This goes back to the early 2000's and The Dodger bowl in San Bernardino. Lots of great sessions at this one. #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #backyardpools #poolskating #skateboarding #skatephoto #theskateboardmag #daveswift 2w
  •   worldsbestsergio What film did you use? 2w
  •   daveswift01 Velvia 50 pushed 1 stop 2w
  •   worldsbestsergio Niice, jw - did you use two strobes and cross them? Then use that light in the back for some separation, just trying to figure out how it's lit. Thanks for your time. @daveswift01 2w
  •   daveswift01 Definitely lit from the right and left. Been a long time since I shot this but generally with film I'd light stuff like that at night. @worldsbestsergio 2w
  •   worldsbestsergio Sweeet, well I appreciate your help, been shooting digital for a couple years and my gf recently bought me a diana mini camera that shoots 35mm film on a 24mm lens, going to save up for a film.camera that I can mount my EOS canon lenses to. I think the colors film produces are alot more natural looking, it also makes you think more before shoot, anyway thanks @daveswift01 ,i appreciate the response. Btw I have a friend with an empty pool near san diego that stu graham , ben raybourn ,rhino and some other people went and skated, if you wanna go shoot something there I can get it lined up. Thanks for your time. 2w

daveswift01 The Imperial double-set in Los Angeles was a hot spot for a brief period of time. Frank Hirata ( @frank_lucky73 ) and a picture perfect kickflip on what at the time was considered a "gnar" spot. #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #skatephoto #skateboarding #daveswift #kickflip #theskateboardmag 2w
  •   heavymetalchuck Spot was pretty gnar. I threw a one foot down it. Spots all blocked off now. 2w
  •   esteevn Frank hirata thanks for all those shitty skateparks you helped build. 2w
  •   scarecodeine Gawt damn!!!! 2w
  •   blacknightmare Blast to the past yes!!! @frank_lucky73 @daveswift01 2w
  •   daveswift01 Don't believe everything you read in the funny papers @esteevn I'm pretty sure Frank tried to convince Purkess Rose to do a better job. Pretty sure that's why he no longer works for them. 2w

daveswift01 Back in early 2004 i drove out to Point X to see my friend do the gap. At the time I wasn't really planning on setting up and shooting anything more than a sequence of him doing it. Well it turns out that @zakra_miller and his dad Chris Miller ( @owlcat ) were giving the gap a go as well. This frontside air of Pops Miller on the QP was a result of being at the right place at the right time. #skatephoto #skateboarding #skateboardinglegend #chrismiller #daveswift #theskateboardmag 2w

daveswift01 I shot this photo of @willysantos doing a nollie over the rail from my car window. I think this school was called Skyline not not totally sure. So you might ask yourself "why from the car window?" When we pulled up at the spot we got vibes by some gangsters and I didn't feel good about carrying all my gear over the fence and setting up as I'd be a sitting duck just asking to get jacked. Photo came out cool nontheless. #skatephoto #skateboarding #daveswift 2w

daveswift01 Going way back to 1988 with this one. Double sided feeble fun on a kick ass curb in Del Mar. Pay no attention to the Stüssy overalls. #skatephoto #skateboarding #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #daveswift 2w

daveswift01 Back in 1993, @jamiethomas had the great idea to shoot a Pro Spotlight in one day. It all started at my apartment in Carlsbad, Ca. At about 8:00AM. Jamie and Josh Kalis (to film) and @skinphoto and me to shoot the bulk of stills and sequences. There was two things that Dan Sturt would shoot and this apartment gap in SD was one of them. I poached from the street and shot this photo. I don't think anyone has ever seen it previous to this post. #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #skatephoto #skateboarding #daveswift #jamiethomas 3w

daveswift01 @tweestopher has frontside flips on tranny on lock. This one was a few months back in Salbaland. Tight. #skatephoto #skateboarding #daveswift #theskateboardmag 3w

daveswift01 @alphonzorawlsdesigns is a pretty epic human being. Frontal nose skidder at the famous Scripps rail in La Jolla, Ca. Circa back in the 90s. #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #skateboarding #skatephoto #daveswift #theskateboardmag 3w

daveswift01 Brian Anderson skids a solid back tail on the tall UCI hubbas. This was a Droors clothing ad way back when. I think the long lens version ran as editorial. @3Dskateboards #briananderson #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #daveswift #skatephoto #skateboarding 4w

daveswift01 So hyped to finally get a scan of this @therealtompenny frontside flip over the I shot at Chicken's pool ( @pocketpistols ) back in 1993. Slide got lost and all I had was the magazine poster pullout from the issue it was in. This was perfect and fucking groundbreaking at the time. #skateboardinglooksbetteronfilm #skatephoto #skateboarding #daveswift #theskateboardmag 4w
