Almost Photo Retrospective With Seu Trinh
Apr 18, 2012 12:27 PM CDT

It's Almost week here at CCS and today we decided to drop a line to legendary Los Angeles skate photographer Seu Trinh to see if he had any old photos of the Almost team. Seu has been shooting skateboarding for more than twenty years and has seen a lot of action through his lens in that time. In particular, he's shot extensively with Daewon, Mullen, Haslam, Cooper and the rest of the Almost team since the early days of the company. Lucky for us, Seu was nice enough to provide a bunch of old Almost photos from years past. Some have never seen the light of day while others are now famous images. Which ones do you recognize?

"Here's Cooper Wilt doing a backside nosepick in a million dollar Malibu, California pool after it was destroyed in a landslide. Sorry." 2004.

"Here's Chris Haslam blasting an ollie in Taiwan. That's the Taipai 101 building with the purple lights in the background. It's the tallest building in Taiwan. This photo was in the TWS photo annual 2006."

"Chris Haslam and Rodney Mullen. Best friends forever in Europe."

"I made these gloves after I noticed skaters landing sloppy in videos. If they're going to put their hands on the ground why not have some wheels to ride away smooth. This ended up as an Almost ad in 2004."

"Here's me shooting into a mirror. That's Cooper grinding in the background."

"This is from back when Rodney was riding for CCS. Rodney hates portraits of himself and CCS needed one so this is what I came up with in 2005."

"Here's Daewon doing a frontside tailslide in the LA river. This really shows how Daewon is down to skate any spot. This photo ended up in the TWS photo annual in 2005."

"Here's a portrait of Willow. This handsome man kind of looks like James Dean." 2010.

"Here's Luis Cruz. He's the Almost brand manager and go to man for everything. He takes care of everyone on the team and always looked out for me. Thanks a million, Luis." Taipai, Taiwan. 2006.
