I discovered Fabian Reichenbach and his skateboard photography just this year and for someone who has just been working on his skills since 2013, he’s got some great skills. Have a look at some of his work right here and I’m glad to have him join the United Skateboard Photography Project!

Where are you currently located / living?

Right now, I’m based in Landau. It’s located right between Karlsruhe and Mannheim in Germany.

What is your favorite photography accessory other than your camera?

Definitely a good subject! (USPP note: *laugh* good “answer”, definitely not an easy question!)

If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?

Probably the 50mm. The variety of the lens is just so big, you can almost shoot anything with it.

What makes a skate photograph original and unique: basically what is your idea of a good photo?

For me, the right moment is basically crucial and of course a nice composition. Although the last point always depends on everybodies own definition of “nice composition”.

Name the first photographer that comes to your mind and why?

Fred Mortagne / Hendrik Herzmann – both are brilliant and a big inspiration as well.

What do you feel is the most challenging thing about skateboard photography?

Capturing the right moment and working with your environment.

Name some references you have (past and present photography work) and/or your relation to skateboarding

A couple of photos in different magazines ( skateboarding / punkrock shows ) and a small exhibition at a local bar in Landau.
