GRIFTERED @ THE GRIFTER BREWING CO.

Dave Chami exhibits his beer soaked photography...


A few of the skaters I shoot with like to have a couple of beers under their belt when they skate, call it a warm-up in a can if you will.

Maybe they feel a little looser when the pressure is on to get a trick for a photo. The whole scenario set me to wondering ‘What if the roll of film I was shooting had a few? What would that look like?’ Luckily my good friend Glenn Wignall is head brewer over at The Grifter brewing Co and was happy to let me ply my rolls with some of his more experimental creations. I did have some scenarios where the film completely blacked out or got so pissed that it was impossible to tell what was going on, but generally the warped, hazy, and separated results you see here are what you might expect if you were a roll of film on a big night soaking around town getting ‘Griftered’
