When only seeing the thumbnail I thought: 'oh, well placed remote camera, good job.'

But when opening it in large, hell, this isn't a remote!!! That's what I call working hard for a photo! Stunning capture.  Wow!

so was the camera stuck to his helmet and the photographer pushed a shutter release? I'm presuming the hands on the wing support are the photographers.....

That's the kind of thing the photographers choice should be for, technical merit.

along with balls of steel...

Hi all,

The pilot can afford to be as happy as he is, he hasn't got to jump Big grin

I saw the thumbnail and I was like WOW!
At first I also thought it was a remote camera, but then I saw the hands and knew it wasn't the case.

Definately deserved my vote!

Having done lots of remote photography, the best way to do this would have been a helmet mounted camera, and an electric remote cord down to one hand. That way while jumping, stability could be maintained and the jumper/photographer wouldn't have to reach for the camera.

Great Photo though. Gets my vote today.

Quoting Gary2880 (Reply 2):

Freefall photog's usually have a helmet equipped with a home-built (most of the time) camera mount, and as shutter release, either a standard handheld remote like any of us uses, or a mouth piece that you actuate by biting.

The guy shooting this pic has his feet on the wheel (unless they have a foot-step attached to the landing gear) and hanging on to the strut with his hands. Nothing unusual in skydiving-business actually. Having been a skydiver-driver myself, I've been shot at a number of times and frequently see pic's of myself flying.  bigthumbsup

Jumping's the fun part though!  Wink

Nevertheless,....a really neat picture and it deservingly got my vote as well!! thumbsup 



In thrust I trust.

When I first saw this photo, I was astonished aswell. That photo is really nice, ou could even call it 'unique'. Not the everyday airliner stuff you get to see here on Airliners.net  Wink

For my next trip I was thinking of taping myself to the wing of the QF 747 while flying to down under and making some nice 747 shots from a unique angle. Do you think I'll get permission from the Captain if I ask gently?  Wink

Once again, congrats to the photographer!

What makes the photo a brilliant one is the pilot definitely..
Forget Badpeople call although technically it is (unless permission is given)
