Lafayette Skatepark September 22, 2014

There’s an international movement of quad roller skaters who enjoy skatepark (“vert”) skating. They’re called Chicks in Bowls, and Colorado recently formed a local chapter. They invited me to come shoot some video at the Lafayette Skatepark in Lafayette, Colorado on Monday September 22, 2014. Three chicks showed up — Syke-O Sarah, Joanna Gruesome, and Catastrophoebe. Here’s what I saw. Artist’s note: A lot of skatepark videos just show off the skaters’...

Denver Skatepark September 20, 2014

A couple roller derby skater friends of mine decided to go goof off in the skatepark on the last full day of summer. So I tagged along with cameras. It was beautiful weather, and looked like a fun way to unwind. For Militia Vandal, it was her first time skating in a skatepark. And for Angela Death, it was her first time this year. Thanks to photographer Shutter Up for his two still photos I used in this edit. The Denver Skatepark is located at 19th and Little Raven, just northwest of downtown. To...

Denver Skatepark September 21, 2013

On a warm, sunny Saturday morning in September, several roller derby skaters from the Denver area visited the Denver Skatepark. I tagged along with my camera, and here’s what I saw. As you’ll see, some of the skaters were brand new to skating in a skatepark, and some had previous experience. But everyone seemed to have a good time. The Denver Skatepark is located at 19th and Little Raven, just northwest of downtown. To see more of my roller derby and skatepark videos, visit┬áderbyverse.com.

RollerCon Skatepark Tour 8-1-2013

On Thursday August 1, 2013, some attendees of RollerCon met in the Riviera lobby to go on the Las Vegas Skatepark Tour. This event happens each night of RollerCon, the world’s largest annual roller derby convention. It’s an opportunity for skaters of all skill levels to try vert skating in a safe and supportive environment, hosted by Jay and Dawn Cloetens. I went on the skatepark tour for the first time at RollerCon 2012. In 2013, I brought an extra camera to experiment with. This is...

Quads at the Lafayette Skatepark

Quads at the Lafayette Skatepark

On August 20, 2012, a group of roller derby skaters from the Boulder County Bombers and the Denver Roller Dolls made a trip to the Lafayette Skatepark in Lafayette, Colorado. For most, this was their first visit to a skatepark. For me, this was an opportunity to get some more experience shooting skating at a skatepark, and to experiment with my video camera’s Smooth Slow Record mode in daylight. Here’s what I saw.

RollerCon Skatepark Tour 7-29-2012

RollerCon Skatepark Tour 7-29-2012

All week at RollerCon 2012, roller derby skaters from around the world were invited to sample the skateparks of Las Vegas. On the last day of RollerCon, Sunday night July 29, 2012, I was able to tag along with my camera. We went to the Anthem Skatepark, arriving just after sundown. Some of the skaters were totally new to vert roller skating, and some had done it for years. I think everyone had a good time, and I got to try shooting video at the skatepark for the first time. Here’s the result.
