I’ve been a “company man” or staff photographer for a skateboard company ever since moving to San Francisco in 1994. I worked for Mad Circle and Girl, then had the opportunity to shoot for DC in the spring of 1999. I’ve been fortunate enough to shoot almost every single ad, poster, catalog, et cetera ever since. Here are a few of my favorite DC ad photos from over the last 14 years.—Mike Blabac | blabacphoto.com
