Goodnight Raleigh - a look at the art, architecture, history, and people of the city at night

Christopher Oughton – Contributing Photographer

I live and work in Raleigh, except for the commute to RTP. Photography essentially replaced skateboarding for me, and this is how. Skating is all about spots, so is photography. While skating, you often get kicked out or harassed, same with photography. When skating, you are always trying to improve. I try to implore these very same things in my photography, sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. Shooting photos is a way for me to share and capture things I find interesting or valuable for the pure sake of aesthetics, I am continuing to try and discover unique ways to do this.
