You could say that growing up in a town named after a skateboard company provides an unfair advantage to a forthcoming photographer. The city of Santa Cruz, CA earned its name for having tons of skaters everywhere, so all a kid like Grady Brannan has to do is walk down the street snapping photos. And look how good he is at it. This little gem of a gallery is just a small chapter of his portfolio, and the rest is like a how-to guide for living your life well, currently set in San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury. Check out the rest of his stuff over at gradybrannan.com, and check back here next week for more of his stuff.
