To all the ships at sea, it never ceases to amaze me how people progress at lightning speed. Jon Mecca came here 2 years ago, and it would be fair to say he was wet behind the ears. What he had was something that many photographers don’t have. He not only has a passion for his photography, he also has a passion for skateboarding. The combination of his athleticism with skateboarding and his rock steady hand with a camera makes him a dual threat. I’m extremely proud of him for his first cover. He’s officially left us, but he’ll come back once a week or so just to stay sharp. He doesn’t know it yet but we’re going to plan a trip to go to Brooklyn and meet up with photographers there. Check out his Instagram @jonmecca and website jonmeccaphotography.wordpress.com, and also check out the photo my partner made just love this photo.
