Bustin Spotlight: Ashlee Kristin Photography

Action Sports photographers are your best friend, your static extension, your personal GoPro ready to capture the moment.  All you have to do is something sweet, the photog will make you look cool with their lens.    Sometimes you see ‘em, sometimes you don’t.  At longboard events they’re lurking in the bushes, or right in your face with the flash blasting.  Either way – we depend on these soldiers to get in there and capture the goods.  Thank you photographers for your service!

Photographers can go on tour!  There are plenty longboard skateboard events these days for a photog to really get to know the skaters, and to add depth to their work.  Each rider has strengths & style of their own.   Slide Jam, Push Race, Boarder Cross, Downhill, Slalom, Street, Park, team shoot, brand ad – you name it.  Pick your favorite sessions and get to know the riders, we salute you for that!

Ashlee Brown figured it out, and has gained a lot of experience shooting long board skate events professionally, as Ashlee Kristin Photography.  Here are a few shots from Downhill Skateboard events in Michigan this summer.

I started doing photography because it allowed me to capture special moments, use my creativity and view the world in a way that others may not normally see. It really makes you appreciate the little things in life and that’s why I love it.

I picked up my first longboard six years ago and couldn’t get enough. I honestly had no idea there was such an awesome scene for it in Michigan and I got to witness that when I was asked to photograph my first longboard event in 2013.
I’ve been so fortunate to meet some of the coolest and most talented people through longboarding and have made some of the best friends I could ask for. I have mad respect for these guys and ladies because I get to witness their passion firsthand and it’s always incredibly inspiring.

As a local photographer, I also shoot a lot of weddings, seniors, families, etc… But nothing beats hanging out at a race event all day with my “skate family” and snapping photos of my friends doing what they love.” -Ashlee

This summer we sent team riders Max Ballesteros, and William Royce to skate and film with teammate Toti Bicicleta along with Perropro and the crew at Salsito House in Spain.
