Bands, Booze & Skateboarding: Scenes From the Vans Warped Tour Kick-Off Party

On Friday, best friend Yasha and I went to the Vans Warped Tour Kick-Off Party at the House of Vans in Brooklyn. She was covering the event for Paper magazine and I was her official photographer. We were both nervous about my ability to capture the shots the magazine needed as hanging out and boozing with a bunch of underage guys with skateboards is - no kidding - my favorite thing to do in the world. I submitted a bunch of photos and the one that ended up on the front page was one of my feet. I'm not sure that my photography career got off to the flying start I had hoped for, but we all have to start somewhere. See the rest of the photos and Yashas great article over at PAPERMAG.COM
