How did you come up with this idea for a shooting?
I’ve been thinking about flashing a wingsuiter for many years now. I’ve started by photographing paragliders, but even though this was far from simple, it was still less complex of a task than photographing actual wingsuiters.
By delving further into this world, it allowed us to refine our technique and solve common problems we’ve experienced before with flash photography. To set up this shooting we used the same strategy as when we realized our other paragliding photos.
Once we’ve decided to go on with the wingsuit photoshoot, it went by quite quickly, only a few phone calls here and there, and we were ready to go!
We went to Saint Hilaire’s spot, near Grenoble (France) for a day, and the best photograph was taken after the fifth jump.
