Third on my Top 10 List of Transworld Pro Spotlights over the years is Jamie Thomas' Day in the Life-style demolition derby from April 1995. Still incredible.
“I like having real productive days, so that at the end of the day I have a lot to show for it… It’s a good feeling.”
Shooting these things ain’t easy. Even back in 1995, the Pro Spotlight was still a long-term project that typically took several months of shooting if the skater were to see it through to completion. And that’s a very big “if”. So in typical Chief fashion, it only makes sense that Jamie would shave his head and shoot all of his in one day; a feat that is still yet to be matched.
3 is the magic number. (late pass)
