Matthias Reich is a renowned Austrian videographer with a fabulous sense of space and its uses in terms of skateboard filming.
If you take a look at any of his projects over the last four years for – the vistas of the former Yugoslavia, the monuments of southern Russia, Daniel Spiegel and Simon Stricker’s equally smoking Checkouts – what comes across in each is a lovely sense of lenswork, framing and composition which elevate the skating without overshadowing it.
This is his bright Videofolio.

Jaako first travelled to the Salar de Uyuni salt flats in Bolivia about 20 years ago, as a tourist. He slept in a salt hotel, travelled around the salt flats and met the salt workers who had their own quarry and produced salt bricks.
Years later he started to think about skateboarding projects that would be different or out of the norm. Perhaps not surprisingly, one of the first things that came to mind was the Uyuni salt flats and skating on them; but he wasn’t sure if this could be done. Jaakko did a little research and found out through videos and friends that the salt flats might be skateable. Watch and enjoy the fruits of his heavy labours!

You may just see a bus stop, but Torey sees a world of possibility.
