Andy Day is a London-based photographer who specializes in shooting parkour and freerunning. In case you’ve never heard of it before, parkour is an activity in which participants (called “traceurs”) move fluidly through urban landscapes by running, climbing, and jumping across/through/on obstacles, getting from one place to another through the most efficient route possible using only their bodies.
21-year-old Kylie Woon hasn’t been doing photography for very long, but in the two short years since she started dabbling in the medium, her surreal images have already become widely popular online. Her project Surreal-ity features beautiful dreamlike self-portraits in which she is seen floating and flying in all kinds of beautiful locations.
“Tombstoning” is what people in the UK call jumping into water from a cliff upright and feet first, like a tombstone. If you have a friend gutsy enough to do this, try shooting multiple exposures as they’re falling and combine them into a single image. Photographer Alastair Sopp captured the beautiful image above of a nameless daredevil jumping from a 100 foot cliff into 20 feet of water (yikes!).
