Risking It All for the Perfect Shot

By Lucy - 2 min read

Photos that’ll make you go whoa.

As a photographer, you know what it means to do whatever it takes to get the shot you pictured in your mind. That might mean leaning over a terrifying 500 foot drop, letting go of the handlebars, or scaling questionably sturdy scaffolding. It might even mean risking your reputation by putting a selfie-stick to use.

These photographers and the risk-takers they photographed are definitely riding that wave. But they up the ante with these wild shots. Get ready for some sweaty palms.
