Why haven't i heard of Jazz push? I feel ike a fool!
There's a difference between a skate filmer i.e if a skater, photographer and filmer all went out to shoot the same thing togehter and mates/lurkers poaching video/photos for Facebook/Instagram.
It isn't in the interest of either photographer or filmer to tread on the others toes.. On occasions I have been filming people whilst CJ has been on photo duty and we have come to a spoken agreement that I not use the footage before the photo is used in the mag. If the footage is used first then the photo won't get run and it ruins it for everyone!
It is wack when people poach for no good reason tother than Youtube views. Didn't someone poach Chris Cole's back 3 down Love 4 and Youtube it?!
The original question was "Is it wrong to post spots on Instagram" in case they give away clues to who/what/when/where and I say no. personally I think it just builds the hype.. "Holy shit - Lizard king was at Wednesfield 4 the other day! I wander if he firecrackered them or not?!" and then await the footage/photo to drop.
We had a sick spot near where I live, hardly a secret as it was a school but it had just had a massive revamp and it was like something out of skate3 and perfect so we kept it a bit on the DL. We told this one guy who is a bit of a lurker / filmer round the HW scene. Next time I turned up there with 2 mates who knew about it (and understood what discretion was)the cunt had bought about 5 carloads of people there. Security who had been reasonably happy to let one or two of us skate there or at least turned a blind eye went fucking mental and now the spot is a total bust.
Worst thing is, this dude is super protective of the spots he knows about but quite happily fucked over ours.
It still makes me want to stick my foot in his testicles thinking about it now so while I am happy to share spots I find, make sure it's with people who aren't likely to fucking ruin everything by being a complete mong.
