When Mike Blabac was called upon to be the photographer to document Danny Way jumping his skateboard over The Great Wall of China, there was no doubt in his mind that he had what it took to get the right shot. He had literally prepared most of his life for this type of pressure. From the ripe old age of 11 years old, Blabac was shooting with his first DSLR camera and developing his own photos in the darkroom. The only passion that was bigger, and more time consuming, was his love of skateboarding. At age 20, Blabac moved out to San Francisco to pursue skateboarding. Before long his two passions finally intersected, and he found himself shooting photos for some of the sponsored skateboarders he was hanging out with. The rest, as they say, is history. He would go on to become the head photographer for DC Shoe Company and have his fingerprints on some of the most iconic skate and action sports photos in the last 20 years. He has worked with some of the biggest names in actions sports, as well getting the opportunity to produce commercial work for a "whose who" roster of corporate clients. Through all of it, Blabac has kept a very humble attitude, and continues to have a deep love for photography and the access to interesting people and great adventures that it provides.
