For Jeremy Adams, the line between photography and subject matter is blurry. A fervent skateboarder, Adams started taking pictures of the sport in high school after he was sidelined by an injury. "Now I skateboard every chance I get and I shoot photos every chance I get," he says. Using lighting skills learned both at PCC and during a summer internship with L.A. photographer Paul Harris, Adams shot this image of a friend skating at an abandoned elementary school with his camera and a single strobe head placed ten feet high. Though the image is unmanipulated, Adams is a fan of movie poster photographer and master compositor Michael Muller, and hopes to acquire gnarly Photoshop skills when he transfers to Pasadena's Art Center College of Design. -Russell Hart
