I had a photoshoot that was a bit different than my usual extreme music or weird shoots! I shouldn’t even say weird shoots because I haven’t even really been doing shoots lately, although I’d love to.
I had the opportunity to photograph a rock climber named Cory! I had never photographed anyone climbing anything before, except for maybe stage divers climbing on people’s heads. I also love nature, so I was excited to try something new.
I was quite nervous watching him climb, although he is really used to it and made it look easy. I found it very fascinating to see him analyze the rocks and plan out what he was going to do before he did it.
To see more of these, visit my gallery HERE. I took them in color but made black and white versions of some.
I had a really great time and was pretty amazed by what he can do. He briefly shared a bit with me about climbing photography and said the best pictures are taken from above, meaning the photographer would have to be on the top, meaning the photographer would have to climb there. I don’t know how I feel about that because I’m afraid of heights and would probably panic and need to be rescued. The pictures may be worth trying, though!
