THRASHER’s Most Jaw-Dropping Skateboarding Pics of 2011

THRASHER’s Most Jaw-Dropping Skateboarding Pics of 2011

Thrasher got together with Wired Magazine to choose the most impressive skateboarding pics of 2011. With over 10′000 pictures posted in the print and online editions of the magazine in the last 12 months, you can imagine that the choice was not easy. We cannot choose our favorite of the bunch, they are all just amazing.

“The magazine runs more than 10,000 photos in its print and online editions each year, and damn near every one of them shows someone doing something bordering on insane. These are the 10 most jaw-dropping photos Thrasher published this year. They aren’t the best, in that the lighting or composition may not be perfect. But this isn’t about photography. It’s about skateboarding.

“It’s really more about the stunt being documented,” said Thrasher magazine creative director Kevin Convertito. “Sort of like shooting photos of car crashes.”

As Thrasher photo editor Michael Burnett would say, these are photos snapped when the skater was at his moment of “maximum rad.” And if every picture says 1,000 words, then the story here is of skaters pushing the limits of their sport in what Convertito calls “progression through focused aggression.”

Check out the rest of the photos after the jump.

Gourmet Fall 2011 “Lifestyling” Collection: Behind The Scenes

Gourmet Fall 2011 "Lifestyling" Collection- Behind The Scenes-04

For the Gourmet Fall 2011 Collection lookbook, the team traveled up to the Stonebrook Manor, Los Altos Hills, California.

Story: The background story for the shoot is a man obsessed, obsessed with Gourmet shoes. The book not only features the surroundings and environment of a highly educated man of taste, but if you look closely, in almost every room, the man has dozens and dozens and dozens of Gourmet shoes. So many in fact they do not fit in his closets. They are in his study, his bedroom, his maids quarters and his wine cellars. The concept was chosen to portray an aspirational vibe. One that shows Gourmet on the highest level.

In our gallery you will see a few highlight shots from the shoot giving us some shoe previews from the famed mansion. The Fall 2011 Collection will be releasing next month at a Gourmet retailer near you.
