Bjorn Johnston
The professional skater has another weapon of choice: The camera.
Frames 1y

Entering his first skate contest at just 11 years of age, Bjorn Johnston has spent over two decades as one of the region’s most renowned board-riders. He’s traveled across the globe to compete with the support of brands like Kr3w and Element, and has documented his adventures with another weapon of choice: His camera.

While his parents used to drive him across the country so he could skate to his heart’s content, it was also his father who introduced him to photography – and Bjorn even ended up adopting his Olympus OM-1 35mm SLR. From then on he’s kept a camera by his side, and now he presents us with some of his favourite selects for this week’s edition of Frames. There’s a solid mix of mates, skate spots and babes, so he’s got all the most important bases covered!
