video: LET US ROAM - Atiba JeffersonPhotography // Thursday, 29 May 2014
In part of a new series by Leica, Let Us Roam profiles photographers with skateboard backgrounds. Videos in the past were made on Greg Hunt, Ray Barbee, Arto Saari and now Atiba Jefferson. Jefferson is a professional photographer from Colorado Springs, CO. He discovered photography in high school and quickly developed a passion for the camera. Since skateboarding was his first love it naturally became his primary subject and the focus through the lens. His desire to capture the movement of skateboarding, precisely how he saw it, pushed him to move to California and chase his dream of becoming a professional photographer. Atiba now shoots everything from skateboarding to Lakers games to portraits of world-famous musicians and athletes. This short film gives a glimpse into the crazy life of Atiba and how he became a professional photographer.
