When today’s top professionals are faced with a trick that can only be attempted once, there are only a few names that can be trusted to get the shot. At the top of the very short list is Colorado transplant and Thrasher Magazine editor-at-large, Michael Burnett.

Credited with capturing some of Thrasher’s most notable images, whether it be on tour or at home, Burnett tirelessly strives to document every aspect of skateboarding. From the monumental to the mundane, Michael sees importance and meaning in it all.
