Q:Do you have a flickr?
Yep - it’s under tuff-media
Q:Umm how do u do this stuff please tell me
You get whatever camera you have - be it a phone, point-and-shoot or whatever and start learning about photography. Not just what button takes a photo, but start thinking about what makes a good photo. Use the internet to look at lots of good photos and think about what the choices those photographers made in order to get that shot. Why did that take that photo? What makes it good?
Along the way, you’ll pick up some technical knowledge about f-stops and shutter speed and all that, but it’s developing your artistic vision that matters most.
I grew up looking at the skate photos of Grant Brittain, Dave Swift, Spike Jonze, Daniel Harold Sturt. Those images made me want to shoot skateboarding. Check those guys out (google them). Also check out Chase Jarvis - he has a really good blog with lots of how-tos. The information is all out there, you just have to seek it out.
Q:What camera do you recommend to start out with in shooting tricks? One thats relatively cheap as well as efficient
The thing about starting out, is that it’s hard to have the perspective that you’re building a system. There are a lot of off-brand cameras out there that are good, but dead ends when you want to grow in the future. You want a system that can expand to using off-camera flash down the road. Canon and Nikon are going to have the most options.
If you’re interested in photos and video, I’d say a Canon t3i is a good place to start. I see used bodies on CL for $380. Good for both video and stills. Check out my pal Morgan’s site for some examples of what this camera can do. http://morganandrewsomers.com
Still too much to deal with? Check out Dan Sparanga - he’s the WCS staff photographer and he shoots with a Sony NEX3. http://www.dgsfoto.com/home.html
Can’t argue with quality
You’ll probably want a fisheye lens as well. Rokinon are a good value - just make sure you’re getting the correct mount type for your camera, With a Micro 4/3 or APS-C camera, you’ll want the 8mm. For a full frame camera, you’d want the 15mm. Hit me up at Todd (at) skateographer.com if you need more info.
