Roc City Skatepark – Rochester, NY
This Skatepark is a part of a Rochester City Program called ROC the Riverway – The ROC the Riverway Program consolidates more than two dozen transformational projects along the Genesee River into a unified strategy. This will enable Rochester to better leverage the value of it’s riverfront.
Growing up, I have always wanted to pick up skateboarding but I have never seen any skateparks and I did not have friends who are into this. I guess I’m glad I didn’t take it on as I would have ended up with multiple fractured bones. Otherwise, I will continue to stop by skateparks along my path to document people enjoying themselves and being in their own natural element/ world. When I went over to shoot this video, I had no plan and knew no one there but I managed to hype up some of the skaters enough to get them to do tricks on camera. And it all turned out beautifully thanks to the buttery 120FPS and ND filter.
Camera Used : Canon EOS R6 + Canon RF 24-105mm f/4-7.1 IS STM Lens
