MAKE IT COUNT PHOTO SERIES – CHAD TIM TIM

Throughout 2009, Kirk Dianda filmed and edited MAKE IT COUNT, The Element Story. The documentary is a four-part series, that tells the story of the iconic brand and the people that helped shape what it is today.

Element recently released a 200-page photo book, which includes a DVD of the film too (available at elementskateboards.com). The book is jam-packed with imagery from Element’s 20 years of defining moments, including ads, unseen photos, graphics, and behind the scenes photos from the film.

Throughout the production process, I was lucky enough to travel with Kirk while he interviewed this collection of truly inspiring people and shoot behind the scenes photos.

Here is a selection of photos I took while we interviewed Chad Tim Tim at his house in Long Beach, California.

Chad is a devoted father and committed husband. And this peaceful nature transcends into his skateboarding, with a well-respected career, defined by precision and power.

    Interesting small world we live in…with 6 degrees of separation.
    I live in Schenectady, my fiance is Australian.
    I saw the link for your site on Bleach Black. I found out about BB, through Alternative Apparels site.
    I’m scrolling down your posts and hey! Element skateboards & Jeremy Fish! Both are from the Capital District. Jeremy & I have friends in common.
    Small world!
    Love your plush creatures, they are what caught my eye on Bleach Black.
