Inspiration: Scott Pommier

We love The Selvedge Yard blog, as its always on the mark with cool photography to inspire jeans and casualwear. Recently, they have called out ‘of the moment’ photographer Scott Pommier and his series of bikers and boarders that capture, in their words, true ‘Modern Americana’

Pommier tells The Selvedge Yard:

“I started shooting photos of my friends skateboarding. All I wanted to do for the longest time was to take pictures like the ones that I saw in skateboarding magazines, and I learned to do just that. I shot for skateboarding magazines for about ten years, now people ask me what I shoot and I don’t quite know what to tell them. I don’t feel like I’m an action sport photographer, a commercial photographer, a lifestyle photographer or a fashion photographer exactly, but a little bit of all of those things.
Of the pictures that I’ve shot, the ones that I like best, fall in between some of those lines; an action photo that feels more like a fashion shot or portrait that borders on reportage. I spent years learning the skill of photography before I really figured out how I wanted to shoot and what I wanted to shoot. I take pictures of what I think is interesting and significant and beautiful”
