This weekend I took another step towards a long term idea of making a flying studio. Yes!!! You heard it well!
A proper moving (@ 200km/h+) studio with flying VALS (Voice Activated Lightstand), subjects, remote triggering of moving multi flash units and so on. A lot more is to be said about this… but for now here are 2 pics out of my first post production editing… Two images out of many that so well portrait how AMAZING this was to shoot!
My beautiful Portugal was the scenario and Skydive Europe facilities our base camp.
Getting the chance to work together with Atmonauti World Record holder Frankie Freefly was a true pleasure as we had been dreaming about the opportunity of sharing the skies for a long time and this was the perfect excuse.
Congratulations to Marinho Pardo for his 4000 jump on this one… Hope to get to share many more soon.
Much more is in the pipeline regarding this project… But for now I have to keep it in your imaginations only! Enjoy.
It seems that some of the few images I published on UKC website over the past weeks are seing some attention. I have to say that I am quite proud to have made it to the TOP10 with not only one, but 3 images, respectively in 1st, 6th and 8th place.
I know that this has been promised for a while, but the last few months have seen some great change in my life that have both inspired me but also taken me a whole lot of that precious time.
Meanwhile, and while we wait for the full story, I just couldn’t resist and hold to this anymore.
It has been out and live for a few days now and in ways it has already made the rounds… But in case you haven’t seen it yet… Turn your speakers on, crank that volume and let yourself dream, as that was exactly what we allowed ourselves to do!
I truly hope that you get inspired by the amazing atmosphere and people that made this project come true.
Enjoy… And if you like it, SHARE IT! It means the world to me and helps to keep this space going and with a purpose.
I know it’s been a while since I last been here, but my life has seriously been hijacked for the past few months with some life changing events! Am starting to try to slowly get back on track with my duties an here goes another one of my latest 60 seconds Dynamic Portraits! I personally simply adore this one. It’s raw-ness is out of this world!!! Aahahahahha! Enjoy! 60 seconds Dynamic Portrait – Tom Benzon “Musician”
I’m leaving tomorrow to sunny and beautiful Ireland. Destination: Fairhead!
“Fair Head (Irish: an Bhinn Mhór) is a rocky headland at the north-eastern corner of Northern Ireland, in County Antrim. It lies 3 miles (5 km) east of Ballycastle town, and is the closest part of the mainland to Rathlin Island. It is a very highly-regarded rock-climbing location, and is believed to be the biggest expanse of climbable rock in either Ireland or Britain.”
It’s been a long time I wanted to go and discover this island. Once again following the UK highline scenario with, my now big friend, Nadeem Al-khafaji. Some promising opportunities ahead. Highline project, trad climbing meet with some of the best in the UK and maybe even some soaring speedflying sessions! Keep tuned!
This year has been as people say around here… FULLLL ON!! I’ve started the year with the resolution of joining Central Beacons Mountain Rescue Team for many reasons.But the main reason is… Continue reading →
Gary Connery just tenths of a second before touching down and making the first successful wingsuit landing of mankind history.
48h ago was a GOOOOOD DAY!!
Well!!! If you are reading this, is simply because he really did it! I still cannot believe my memories and often have to reccur to my galleries so that my brain reminds it and the memory sticks as a real one! More after the jump… Continue reading →
Well, in case you have been living in another planet or you haven’t heard, British Stuntman and BASE jumper Gary Connery is about to attempt the first wingsuit landing without opening a parachute, in the world.
If this doesn’t seem EPIC for you, you might need to revise your standards. In a world where pretty much all the frontiers have been conquered by man, this one seems to remain one of the last feats and long time dreams of man to be accomplished.
Portraited in the nice picture here on the side is Gary Connery in his long wait for the British weather window that will allow him to make history.
As part of my of my photography and video projects for this year I have been in negotiations with Mrs. & Mr. Connery in an attempt to make a feature documentary that would capture the essence of the man behind this attempt. Click for the jump and get to know the exciting news… Continue reading →
