“It’s just an expansion of the high school road trip. You got your drivers license and you’re heading out into the unknown.” —Jonathan Mehring

Skateboard photographer Jonathan Mehring has a passion for travel as mush as he does skateboarding.  When the video starts and Jonathan is heard reeling off the list of places he has traveled to in the world you could be forgiven for thinking he works for Lonely Planet or some other travel publication.  Argentina, Mexico, Bolivia, the Canary Islands, Russia, Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Vietnam and the Amazon. Skateboarding gives reason to his travels though and his breathtaking work combines the action with incredible travel images from all corners of the globe.  If you have an interest in action sports photography, this is a guy who is doing something different and combining travel images with action in a beautiful way.
