Photographer - John Richard Haynes

Age: 28
Location: Minneapolis, MN
Years Blading: 14
Years Shooting: 11
Personal Statement: I always tell the skaters I shoot with that I want to be at least as capable in photography as they are on blades. Just as bladers strive to have their own style, I strive to not be interchangeable with other photographers who also shoot skating. I prefer subtlety and try to challenge my viewers with the way I shoot skating. 

Photo Gear

Camera Body: Nikon d300s, I also frequently use a view camera, various medium format cameras, range finders, and toy cameras on assignments.
Lenses: Nikon 10.5mm dx fisheye, Sigma 16mm fisheye, 17-55mm f2.8 crappy Tamron lens, Nikon 28mm f2.8, Nikon 50mm f1.4, Nikon 60mm f.28 macro, Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 vr.
Lighting Equipment: Dyna Lite Jack Rabbit kit, some crappy Metz flash that I don't know how to turn down. I very very, very rarely use more than two lights on any skate shot. Extra gear: c-stands, umbrellas, sand bags, tripod, light stands, reflectors, Manfrotto super clamps, A-clamps, gaff tape, cinnefoil, polarizing filters, PBR, etc.
