the London greeting at its very best --p-1292
Back in July I made my way down to NASS Festival to hang with some of the best UK rollerbladers and play social media Queen B with Kingdom Magazine. I wrote an event article about the festival to accompany some pretty awesome shots by Sam Cooper for Be-Mag which was a lot of fun. If you haven’t read it yet, check the full article over on Be-Mag’s website.

What can I say about Sam Cooper, he is one of the best and also one of my favourite photographers in the scene, not only for his action shots but his natural lifestyle images which capture that perfect unexpected expression of people faces and movements. It’s best when you don’t know someone is taking a photograph, sometimes the best shots are the most natural when you don’t know the lens is on you… nice work Sam!

When it comes to NASS there is so much to tell, and some things best left untold haha. Mr. Cooper and myself decided to bring together what we believe to be the best images of the ‘Faces of NASS’ to focus more on the lifestyle side of the Blade family. This year’s activities went in full swing as it stayed fairly dry all for most of the weekend which meant one very important annual contest could take place… ‘THE ANNUAL LEON HUMPHRIES X LOCOSKATES BEER PONG INVITATIONAL’! An event obviously not to be missed and is at the top of the list for many in the UK rollerblading community.
