I was invited to attend the one-day Xgames Oslo on behalf of Method Magazine, and these are the images that I shot there. As you can tell, I was more interested in the details than the action. I figured that there were enough other photographers taking care of that, so I spent my time shooting plastic plants and portraits. I was also kicked off the skate course for apparently crashing the women's practice. There were only two of them there, and it didn't look like much of a practice to me, but at least I got to skate a bit. Since these photographs were shot, Method Mag has not been invited to attend any subsequent Xgames events.
