Shutter Thug: Ben Karpinski

Shutter Thug: Ben Karpinski

Thanks to the Interwebs, these days skate videos are a dime a dozen. But the art of good old-fashioned skate photography? That’s a bit more elusive. So every week #OnTheGrind likes to honor the slow process of visual progress with our weekly feature on a shutter thug that we feel is capturing some awesome or unique shredding.¬†

Ben Karpinski hails from Cypress, California. His shots have been featured everywhere from The Skateboard Mag to Thrasher. This week his work’s made it on to ESPN’s X Games site and it features a slew of images from his travels to SoCal, Texas, and Illinois.

Check out the entire series of Ben’s “March 2014 Portfolio” photos for ESPN¬†here.
