so was the camera stuck to his helmet and the photographer pushed a shutter release?
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.

The pilot can afford to be as happy as he is, he hasn't got to jump
Jumping's the fun part though!
Nevertheless,....a really neat picture and it deservingly got my vote as well!!
In thrust I trust.
