Frankly, I think he was under charging for his abilities ;^). This sk8tr had a great idea and his jumps were super. How many of us wouldn't like to earn income while practicing what we love? I just paid him a buck for a photo op, though. He was disappointed that I didn't want to shoot him in action, and thinking on it now, that probably would have been a great idea. I liked his KEXP t-shirt and sign and wanted to capture what I saw as he passed me. Some of my Flickr friends (Hi Steffe!) are taking a challenge of making 100 portraits of strangers. It requires one to interview the person and include the info with the photo, though, so I'm hesitant to try it.
