About The Shot:

Together with the Red Bull Skydive Team, I did this crazy Project called “Megaswing “back in 2016. After my assignment, I already knew this had to be a tricky one: Two Hot Air Balloons, one with a long rope attached and the other one to jump out with the swing, and of course the Skydiver with his parachute.

After the first couple of jumps, I realized that I wouldn’t get the perfect shot by simply shooting from the inside of the basket they were jumping out of. Lucky me, I had my monopod in the car as well as a pair of radio-triggers. My solution to get the right angle was to hold the camera that I had attached to my monopod deep under the basket and just hope to get the perfect framing.
