Photographers are rock stars in their own right. They aren't smashing guitars or pounding a drum kit, but they capture moments in time and document culture for generations of onlookers. Still, skate photographer Steve Sherman got the opportunity of a lifetime when he joined surf rocker Donavon Frankenreiter for his European tour.

Sherman documented it for a short film, called Sherm's in the Band, which Complex premieres today. “Going on tour with Donavon was a stellar experience," Sherman says. "We’ve been friends for a long time and both have a passion for music and photography, so when he asked if I could go on tour, I was on board. As an artist myself, I hope to bring fans closer to the stage and share the experience. This takes “I’m with the band” to a whole new level.”

The documentary is the latest short film released by Sanuk's production team, a fur real production, which typically does video interviews with athletes.
