Ed Templeton: A Professional Skateboarder Turns Artist

Everyone knows that Ed Templeton is one of the best skateboarders in the world. But did you know he’s also an amazing photographer? Ed has been chronicling his skateboarding adventures since he broke into the scene in the early 90’s and offers a unique perspective on the skate lifestyle. Unlike most of his buddies, Ed has been sober his entire life and been in a monogamous relationship since he was 14-years-old. He never participated in any of the crazy antics but he was definitely on hand to capture the exploits with his camera. In this portrait, he gives us a clearer picture of his views on life, photography, Leicas, and the nature of his creative quest.

  1. He definitely should, he has a great eye & an original perspective – very refreshing, I must say. Great post!

  2. @bluntcrayon Glad you liked the video! I too learned a lot from it about Ed. I had no idea he was so good at taking pictures. He should publish a book or something.
