- Arto Saari
Pro Skater turned Pro Photographer, Arto is known for his breathtaking skate photography as well as his incredible lifestyle & portrait images.
Arto Saari's story is nothing short of miraculous. Obviously he's naturally gifted and skated his ass off as a kid, but his rise to prominence is like no one else's. If you wanted to describe it to someone who doesn't skate, you could say: Imagine a boy from a faraway country showing up at the World Series and asking if he can play. And not only does he play, but he hits four home runs and becomes the MVP. That's basically what Arto did; he showed up at the best place to show off your skills as a walk-on and kicked off one of the most apex (that's Arto's word for amazing) skate careers of all time. - Vice Magazine May 2012.
