Andrew Mapstone has been one of Australia’s most respected and prolific skate photographers for years now. Still a ruler on a whizzplank himself he has the photographic skills to make it happen, but more importantly a true skaters perspective and a great understanding of his subjects. Point of proof for this is his empathy for most sponsored skater’s dislike of DNL’s being run in print. Whats a DNL you ask? Well it stands for Did Not Land and basically means the skater didn’t roll away from the trick in the photo in question. Some photographers don’t have as good a set of ethics but Mapstone proves his in his new Now and Then feature on the Volcom site. He runs through a series of shots that all look like epic makes but then he explains that they weren’t and why. Fascinating stuff, especially for anyone that wonders about how the skate industry works.
