A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting up with Ishod Wair, Mark Suciu and some of their friends in Philly. It’s been a while since I shot in Philly but I was pleased to find a thriving, non-bitter, and very positive scene. The kids are motivated and killing it. Check it out.

Ishod reminds me a little of Busenitz or Brian Delatorre. He is always skating something. He doesn't stop. As a photographer if you aren't always ready your going to miss it. No time to set up flashes, Ishod blasts a frontside 180 over this bump to bar on Market before getting kicked out by office clowns.

Ishod Wair - Ollie. Two tries or less this spot is a mega bust but definitely worth the chance.
