Shoot All Skaters: Zander Taketomo

Posted by David Read on Wednesday August 29 2012

The Berrics take a look at the work of Philadelphia-based skateboard photographer Zander Taketomo, who is one of an ever-decreasing group of shooters who are holding on to the art of film photography. Zander disregards the benefits of instant gratification that digital cameras offer in favour of the more considered approach that film gives. While this process is not exclusive to film, he raises the point that some photographers have let their work slip when they turned their back on film. This may be true for some, not all, but the one thing that is certain is that Taketomo’s work is on point.
