Next up with the Dangerous 10 is Brisbane Based photographer and good friend of the posse Jashan Prasad .
1. What are you rolling with at the moment ? (skate setup / Film set up / Photo set up )
At the moment im using a Nikon D3S camera, 16mm fisheye, 80-200 zoom lens, 50mm on the way until i can afford a 24-70. haha. Things are so expensinve these days! I use Nikon Sb900 flashes for lighting
2. Favourite Aussie skater/s ?
Umm, thats a tough one, theres so many good skaters in Aus these days! Ive always loved dennis’s skating.. Amazing style and skates with heaps of speed! Nugget is just rediculous! Cam is amazing to watch at any spot whether its street or ramp.. Always loved Marty Girotto stuff too. but yeh, the list can go on and on.
3. FAvourite Aussie Videos/webclips ?
Glory Ride was so sick! I wasnt expecting to be as good as it was when i first heard about it. I thought it was just going to be some fun little thing just thrown together with a bunch of muck around skating etc.. i guess it was a fun muck around video in a way.. but the skating was amazing and the vid is just fun to watch and get hyped! I used to love those Wednesday at Nerang clips! What ever happened to them Rigby? Michael Pearce always has some rad clips coming out too.
4. 3 things you do before you leave home ?
Make sure my camera battery is actually in my camera. Ive done it before where i forgot to put the battery back in after charging up and didnt realize til it was time to shoot a photo. That was enough to make me paranoid about it and check every time. haha
5. Favourite Home cooked meal/ Favourite Eat out meal ?
i love any of my mums cooking! She can cook an absolute beast of a stir fry. I rarely eat at home these days. i kinda miss it! Eating out.. The “Green and Gold” meal from beach house! Possibly one of the most amazing inventions of all time! Its sorta like a chicken parma but it has avocado and sweet schiili sauce and stuff instead of the parmagiana sauce.. served with chips and salad and a super jug= perfection! Wednesday night is the best to go there cos they have 2 for 1 meals!
6. Best Place you have traveled to and why ?
Umm.. another tough one.. i love travelling in general so its hard to pin point 1. I love going to America.. its always a rad time! Perth is one of the nicest places in the world! China has the best skate spots ever!
7. Best skate city you have been to ?
haha.. i feel like i just answered this. Shanghai has some of the most amazing spots ive ever seen! and like on every single corner as well. You could go past these rediculously perfect marble hubbas and ledges etc and not even look twice at it just cos theyre on every street. Was quite hard to believe!
8. Biggest influences ?
Umm.. photography wise.. Andrew Peters, Dave Black (non-skate) Life-wise.. god, anyone who is positive and encouraging towards others.
9. Websites or apps checked on the Reg ?
In order it would go Facebook, Instagram, Gmail, Skype, skateboard.com then hotmail, They would be the everydayers anyway.
10. What are you working on in 2012 ?
Its shaping up to be quite a busy year.. Working on a couple of little features/interviews for people at the moment.. Ill be back into uni next month still doing a business course.. Hopefully will head over to America around mid yr for a few months possibly more. But yeh wanna just keep having fun and loving what im doing!
