In this second installment of Altamont's "Cut From A Different Cloth" video series, long-time Altamont friend and contributor, Patrick O'Dell talks about what drew him to photography, growing up as an outsider, and the opening of his Skateboard High School Photo Exhibition.

The Cut From A Different Cloth series speaks to the raw energy of Altamont’s eclectic roots. The history of Altamont strewn through music, art, design and skateboarding comes to life as the personalities behind the brand tell the story of what is Altamont; Inspiring in youth, the boldness in each, and to achieving ones own unlimited potential.

The dream was to be a skate photographer. Photography was how skateboarding was communicated, was in pictures and I just loved it.” -Patrick O’Dell
