CHP PRO event 2012

"The Sk8ters takes over Copenhagen" 

Friday evening I went to shoot a couple of pic's at the CPH PRO skate event in Fælledparken. For once the weather was perfect, finally the "Weather Gods" showed some "positive vibes" that very special evening. 

The whole atmosphere around the event were full of positive energy, lot's of laughs, cold beers and a couple of "weedy's" were "consumed" by the crowds, watching the spectacular moves pulled of by these brilliant riders.

I really had a superb time shooting the whole scenery and as you probably will discover in my pic's, I was not the only one who had a fantastic time friday evening.

Only negative thing I can think of was that they scheduled it to start at 8 o'clock - but for some reason they began at 10 o'clock, and by that time the super soft and bright light had disappeared. So the first part of my little photo journey were exactly from 7 - 9 o'clock, were some of the riders played around and warmed up a bit before it all began. So from a photographers point of view that was for me the peak of the evening, when it come to achieving the best photographic result. And just an other small thing they should have arranged was some kind of primitive tribune for the crowds, those in the back had a really hard time following the riders spectacular moves, which generated some frustration amount the crowds. But besides these two small things, the event was a rally nice experience and I can't wait to do it all again next year. Well done CPH PRO and a huge thanks for a fantastic evening.

Anyway here is my little "photo journey" from this brilliant and very successful event arranged by ( go like them on FB - )


  1. This is a really different type of event. It looks like it would be extremely challenging for focusing with the background and low light. Wondering if you shot in monochrome or adjusted for it in PS...? ....and how high was your ISO set?

  2. It feels so nice to find somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. Really thankful to you for starting this. eventpro
