Interview with Unity Magazine
by David Louis McNamara
Aside from documenting rollerblading, you have worked with The Chicago Tribune, Lotus Magazine and Acclaim Entertainment.
What is your most memorable or interesting experience as a photographer?
hmmm.. I just recently shoot some of the most interesting pictures of my career. I photographed an artist’s collection of period woman’s garments called Ophelia Rising. The images are quite beautiful which proved to me that my photography is multidisciplinary. These works that were shot in the span of 6 hours, are important for the artist and currently used with the show.
I’m constantly shooting many things besides skating. I have even shot a couple weddings in which case I’ll shoot over 2500 images in one day.
