I met these skater boys when I was out shooting some street photos with one of my favorite girls. We walked past them and the boys were quick to throw some comments after us from behind the fence. They looked rather cute, but would we go up there? We walked on, but I knew I was passing a chance of getting some cool shots.

But enter Fabiano Rodrigues, an ex professional skateboarder from Brazil who has turned the idea on its head (and hopefully without falling on his head too many times). Armed with nothing but his trusty Hasselblad and a remote, Fabiano finds the perfect spaces to frame his shots and then using luck, intuition and great timing – he takes photos of himself mid-action.
The idea is simple and yet so clever, and the images themselves are beautiful.
Who said selfies had to be annoying?
