Grant Brittain to borrow an old camera; getting his first photo printed in Transworld; shooting with Tom Penny when he first came to the U.S.; the stories behind some of Heath Kirchart’s amazing photos and covers (yep, Swift shot those—see below); switching from film to digital; the era of Transworld when the issues were well over 400 pages; leaving Transworld to start The Skateboard Mag; and how selling The Mag to The Berrics(…hey that’s us!) came about.
