Atiba Jefferson was born in 1976 in Colorado Springs, CO. After picking up his first camera in high school, he merged his new passion for photography with his passion for skateboarding and started to send his photographs to the very popular Transworld Skateboarding Magazine. From then on, he learned everything he needed to know from the great Grant Brittain. He soon had a staff position for the magazine, traveling the world doing two things he loved; skating and taking photographs. After leaving Transworld, he has since started the equally popular “The Skateboard Mag.” with a few friends.
Jefferson hasn’t only just shot skateboarding.He shoots professional basketball, motor sports, musicians, portraits and tons more.
