Film: Atiba Jefferson


Atiba Jefferson is a professional photographer from Colorado Springs, CO. He discovered photography in high school and quickly developed a passion for the camera. Since skateboarding was his first love it naturally became his primary subject and the focus through the lens. His desire to capture the movement of skateboarding, precisely how he saw it, pushed him to move to California and chase his dream of becoming a professional photographer. Atiba now shoots everything from skateboarding to Lakers games to portraits of world-famous musicians and athletes. This short film gives a glimpse into the crazy life of Atiba and how he became a professional photographer.

Photography: Atiba Jefferson

Atiba has been shooting the things he loves most in this world for years; skateboarding, basketball, music, just life in general. And everywhere he’s gone he makes an instant impact much like a D. Wade or Ben Roethlisberger. When he was staff photog from Transworld Skateboarding the magazine hit new highs, when him and his pals started The Skateboard Mag it immediately dominated the market. To be honest, I had never even heard of Espn, Adidas, Nike, Panasonic, Mountain Dew or Pepsi until he shot campaigns for them. It really is like everything he touches turns to gold. If i were you, i’d pick Atiba first. I mean, if you like to win. If you’re into losing, you’d be better off going with another photographer  -Chris Nieratko
