If you were involved in the Canadian skateboarding scene during the late early 00’s then you know the name Dylan Doubt. Here he runs through some of his favorite photos over the years that captured a once in a lifetime scene.

Sample:

I was pretty new to Vancouver when I first met Dylan Doubt. He held a highly regarded staff position at SBC Magazine for many years before taking over as Photo Editor at Color Magazine where I was interning at the time. Mutual friends and a passion for photography got us talking quickly. Mornings would start with a batch of strong coffee while the rest of the day consisted of Craigslist finds, the week’s notes, contributor submissions or a cheeky skate on the in-office barrier before heading to the streets.

Whether it’s ABD’s or parts of an old MG, Dylan is a trove of knowledge and taught me a lot about photography over those years. He’s shot everyone from Jon West to Cairo Foster and knew how to manipulate the Hasselblad fisheye to its fullest potential. Dylan was never afraid to get his hands dirty and hop on the board himself, which is also part of what makes Dylan such a great photographer. He’s from White Rock, BC, which should come as no surprise because all of the best skateboarders are from there. Like anything, practice what you preach, and Dylan rips.

Dylan is a connoisseur of life’s delicacies. It was exciting rolling with him because he would always surprise me with a one-of-a-kind pastry shop, bar or sandwich spot along the way. These days, he’s a father who rides both a pedal and a metal hog and spends most of his time on an island. Still a photographer, always a skateboarder.
