Ken Weatherwax aka Pugsley from the Adams Family

I remember being on the Full House Set with John Stamos , at this time the T.V. show taped at the Sony Studios lot. John and I walked out of the soundstage and a very tall gentleman said “hey John” and John responded with “Hey Pugs”. John turned to me and said “do you know who that was?” I said “no” he said “Pugsley” I laughed it off and he said “no really that was Pugsly.” That was the first and last time I had seen Ken Weatherwax, the actor who portrayed Pugsley on the Adams Family.

The sun was going down, and the edge of the ramp was messing with parts of the skaters bodies. I should of turned up my lights or relocated downstairs. Well I ended up just talking to some of the skaters, and I did not get many usable images from the deck.

Lizzie Armanto, back Smith grind, Venice Beach

Lizzie Armanto back smith grind Venice Beach Skatepark

This photo was shot during my first official photo session with Lizzie Armanto on February 02, 2012. The first portion of pictures where shot around the streets of Santa Monica and Venice. Our last stop was Venice Skatepark. I asked her to do a back Smith grind, she said she didn’t know the trick very well but would try. She landed a few, you can tell by her body language that she pretty much forced herself to do these for the camera. I have shot her many times since and have never seen her do back smiths since.
