Our 2012 Photo Annual Release Party on August 10th in Vancouver was one hell of a good time, thanks to Fortune Sound Club, InStance, Emerica, Altamont and Cariboo Brewing. Coldies and copies of the new issue were flowing heavily. Check the Photo Annual previews, and keep an eye out for it at local skateshops this week!
Check out Fortune’s photo album from that epic Friday night right here. Concrete Photo Editor Brian Caissie snapped a few pics as well:
The 2012 Annual cover (shot by Andrew Norton) has been creating quite the buzz, and rightfully so. It’s gnar! Matt Berger’s fine stuntwork silenced Jordan Mayfield.
Photo Annual contributor and guide on the annual Canadian pilgrimage to China, William Cui raised the cuv next to Altamont art directer Mark “FOS” Foster, whose art show was also happening at Fortune.
Chad Dickson and Tessa took in the festivities while Sean Lowe provided a UK middle finger.
Rory Fulber, Justin Chorney, a visiting Russ Milligan, and William Cui. Watch Russ in our Metro Vancouver Park Barge video, featuring the Think team.
Stacy Gabriel, Arte Lew (watch his recent “On The Reel” part) and Photo Annual contributor Judah Oakes.
Cariboo Brewing’s Skate TM Tyler Holm got the guns going. The beginning of the end…
