My homie Jacob Messex had a photo show held at KINGSWELL in Los Feliz. A good formula for a good skateboarding photo is having the right lighting + angle + skateboarder + photographer. Jacob nails it all. Peep his photos and some photos from the opening night.
Stoked for the homie Jacob Messex. He shoots some rad photos and at the age of 19, already has a gnarly portfolio. He’s also a staff photographer over at The Skateboard Mag. His side project, Filmus Zine, are a collection of photos shot on film, from medium format to 35mm. Rad dude! If you stumble upon him on the streets, say what up!
My good buddy and aspiring-skateboarding-photographer-extraordinaire, Jacob Messex from The Skateboard Mag just had his FILMUS zine release / photo show at Kingswell Los Feliz (a skate/tattoo shop/gallery run by Patrick Melcher & DJ Chavez). The first zine itself also holds film photography by Arto Saari, Matt Gottwig, Patrick Driscoll, & Sagan Lockhart.
Active Pro, Nuge was there spinning records. It was a fun night with all the homies that were there, check out the photos from that night!:
