This is Steve Gourlay, he is one of those amazing people who is not only a super nice and extremely humble guy, but he appears to be able to do anything and everything, and do it well! Steve is well known for being one of Australia’s best skateboarding photographers, since the early 90s he has been shooting photos of professional skateboarders all over Australia and the world, with his photos being published in some of the best global skateboarding publications. Steve has also made a name for himself shooting photos for advertising, fashion and more… lets just say he really knows how to take a good photo in any situation!
Aside from shooting amazing photos, for the last few years Steve has been creating custom fitouts and hand made furniture alongside his talented event designer wife, Anoushka Thompson. Together they are Thomo and Coach, and they are a creative force to be reckoned with!
Based in Melbourne, Steve has played a role in all of the Editions we have released so far, he shot all the product photos of the first three editions in his Collingwood studio and since then has given us solid advice and assistance in helping us setup our own photo studio here in Sydney. And when it came to making some more furniture, we decided to commission Steve to build some custom side tables to be hand painted by an artist exclusively for East Editions.
We can’t thank Steve enough for his generous nature, his quality furniture making skills, his positive energy and enthusiasm to be involved in East Editions. We look forward to collaborating with Thomo and Coach again and again…
