Base Jumping and ‘High Fashion’ Meet in this Adrenaline–Fueled Shoot

What happens when you combine base-jumping with fashion models? Well, you end up with this. Teaming up with photographer Noah Bahnson, fashion model and base jumper Roberta Mancino gathered together some of his friends for a fashion shoot like no other.

Partially commissioned by fashion designer Roberto Cavalli, “High Fashion” was captured using GoPros attached to Bahnson’s helmets and turned into this video that made its way to the public in February.

I must say, I’m an adrenaline junkie myself, but just the idea of trying to base jump in a constrictive suit or — even worse — a dress, makes my stomach a wee-bit queasy. Cavallie, Bahnson and Mancino truly showed us the meaning of “High Fashion”.

Watch the short video for yourself at the top of this post and, if you want more mid-air photography action when you’re done, check out this video of professional skydiving photographer Juan Mayer in action.

    So many people came here for boobs.

  • Erick De Vasconcelos

    nice ideas but images are not no great. lacks sofistication as supposed to happen in fashion imagery.

  • Vin Weathermon

    Ugh, what? You mean their clothes were marred by parachute packs?

    nice boobs….

  • Erick De Vasconcelos

    uhn, no, I mean this idea has so much more graphic potential. Handheld all the time , or handheld at all might be no be best aesthetics for high fashion. I ‘ d love to see more planed shooting and camera moves as in a film- even using go pro cameras. It lacks camera and model directing

  • Vin Weathermon

    I see your point. I was more impressed that the person taking the images was base jumping too….more of a thrill ride than a magazine shoot.
