Sturt shooting Rowley is a match made in heaven/hell
 I remember a sturt (color photo ) sequence of Rowley in Thrasher, think part was the cover, but the caption said something like "Geoff Rowley back 3 into the Matter Horn, take this out of the mag and staple it to your fucking eye balls" Something like that, wish I had that one
[close]

I remember that caption well. It was for this photo.

Probably my favourite cover ever, thanks for sharing.

This one's actually a little false as the camera angle makes the bank look steeper than it actually is! Cleverly done but if you look at the bushes they seem a little off.
[close]

Not really the angle, the lens. All that Rowley stuff that looked warped like that was shot on a tilt shift lens.
regardless of lens type, it's obvious he tilted the camera 45 degrees toward making the bank look impossibly steep. an old photographey trick pushed further.

Bumping this from over a year ago. But I think it's worth it.

I scanned and posted the Dan Sturt photo feature today. The one from the Transworld issue with Mullen on the cover.

Enjoy.

well, no not really. tilt shift lenses, when fully tilted either up or down, stretch the last 1/3 - 1/4 of the frame in a weird way. so probably a slight angle to accentuate the bank, and then the shift makes it more dramatic. source - i shoot with tilt shift lenses for a living.

And I have come across the Vans ad of him doing the loop but didn't scan it for some dumb reason. I'll try to find it and scan it and post it on the blog & here.

I think the poster above you means tilt as in rotated the camera not tilt as in tilt shift lens. I could be wrong though.

I've never used a tilt shift lens. They're mainly used for keeping lines straight in architecture photohtaphy right?

I remember when this cover came out, people pointed out the angle the plants were at. If you hold the cover so they're growing straight up that's probably a more realistic  0 degree point.

This is part of the image tilted 30 degrees clockwise. Indeed the bank looks less gnarly and the bushes more natural. Either way, great pic.

Did anyone mention how Sturt "poached" footage of DWay setting a new world record for a highest air on a vert ramp in like 98 (Sturt set up a camera with like a 1600 mm long lens and got the pictures in Thrasher  before TWS who paid for the ramp, location (a former airport iirc) A real legend.

Edit: just compared the footage of the 360 ollie in Extremely Sorry and Sturt (apart from tilting the camera) must have had his camera very low (probably lying on the ground or they must have photoshopped Rowley a bit higher in the air) since it looks way lower in the video. 

Good example of how a camera (angle, lens or both) can make a trick look huge (or sometimes vice versa) like JJ doing a switch tre over what appeared to be almost a river in South Korea but when the footage came out it was a small ditch in a park.

Its crazy how insane of a skater he was too. You gotta be a ripper in order to do the loop, hell even if you are one you might not do it.

Thank you so much. This dude is definitely in that class of true american weirdos that skateboarding attracts. People like the Muska etc etc that are just on another wavelength. amazing interview.

I'm reminded of Sturt's greatness every morning when I drive the 805 through La Jolla. This photo mesmerized me as a teenager

Yeah - me too. Sturt work early  /mid 90s was never seen before and untouchable.

I had the magazine with the Sturt photos in it as a kid. Can't remember how many times I must've read the captions and looked at the photos. Still amazing to look back on, even (more) today. Definitely my fac skateboard photographer of all time.

I think so too. Seems pretty hard to do trick photography on that sequence, especially back then. The only thing sus to me was it seems there should be a frame between 11 and 12.

Have high respect for Stuart - but in this case I think it was trick.
Had a couple of friends who where really good with the swing, jumping off doing flips and stuff - and where really good at skating and they try to redo that stunt over years. It was absolutely impossible.

Our solution was back then from page 6 board & feet where tied up - then the move is possible.

well now that i have seen he has done the loop at 38 years old i imagine he must be actually really insane skater. he might have some sick gymnastics background orsomething. so maybe it is real.

Soz if I missed the joke but there's been trick photography for almost as long as there's been photography. I can think of a couple ways you could do it and I have absolutely zero of the expertise dan Sturt has. But then I also always thought his loop pic was sus too.
