PATIENCE AND RAIN // Cover photo & caption by Brian Caissie

The weather in Vancouver can be a real pain sometimes. While driving to this bump-to-bar it rained twice, making me think we’d definitely have to save it for another day. But MAGNUS HANSON had been here a few times before and was ready to roll away from a SWITCH KICKFLIP. After some close tries, the rain started up again and came down hard, soaking the ground and ending the session. Or so we thought. Magnus decided to wait it out for an hour-and-a-half until it was dry enough to skate again, and even then the occasional drop landed on our cameras. Right when the rain began falling heavily, he quickly ran back for one last attempt, leading to a perfect ride-away and a flurry of high fives. There’s nothing better than getting what you want thanks to a little patience and some rain.

What happens when young Lakai Limited Footwear riders Riley Hawk, Jon Sciano, Sebo Walker and Miles Silvas visit Vancouver for just a few days armed with disposable 35mm cameras? A visual essay depicting each of their experiences, that’s what. Oh, and Brian Caissie was on-hand to shoot skate photos with each of them, too.

After painstakingly trying to duplicate the effects of infrared photography with Photoshop, Huntington Beach’s Deville Nunes scrapped the software approach and began getting DSLRs converted so they can shoot actual infrared photographs. In The Unseen, he explains his experience with IR photography and shares a selection of visually striking skate photos and portraits.

You don’t have to look much further than the Visually Traveling video channel to get a solid dose of Patrik Wallner‘s epic skate journeys to obscure destinations. Lucky for us he keeps an analog still camera handy during filming missions to places like Afghanistan, North Korea, Bulgaria, Vietnam and India. In the Photo Annual he explains his wanderlust through stills and an interview.

Photos: Brian Caissie, Nathan Ethier-Myette, James Morley, Rich Odam, Jon Coulthard // Design: Dave Keras

A high number of photo submissions poured in from within our borders and far beyond, making the selection process for this issue’s Exposure gallery challenging, to say the least. But in true keeping to our roots, we made some careful choices and kept these 12 pages strictly Canadian for your viewing pleasure.

Words: Rob Brink // Photos: Ryan Allan // Design: Dave Keras

Growing up in the Toronto area, Ryan Allan made the move to Southern California to shoot photos (amongst other things) for a number of brands – including C1RCA, adidas, Alien Workshop, Gravis, Analog and now Asphalt Yacht Club. Over the years Ryan has worked, and continues to work, with an impressive list of skateboarders. He’s also discovered much about compromise – balancing his artistic vision with the reality of paying the bills. For this feature Rob Brink unearthed large pearls of Ryan’s wisdom and observations that we’ve published alongside a selection of stand-out photographs shot in recent years.
