Andy Kuno has been a San Francisco skate rat since his teens. Through his father’s work with the SF Giants and 49ers he became interested in photography and eventually turned it into his career as the team photographer for the San Francisco Giants.
And although he shoots a team based sport as his profession, Andy’s love of skateboarding hasn’t diminished. In fact, it’s how he rolls to the ballpark everyday. Have a look into one particular day this past May, where Andy met up with John Cardiel to bring some custom made Chrome bags to the SF Giants players Matt Duffy and Hunter Pence. Filmed by Dan Wolfe. Scored by Tommy Guerrero and BLKTOP Project.
