This new video by COOPH is a 2-minute love letter to action sports photography.
“We love action sports photography,” COOPH says, “and this is our tribute to the photographers who travel the planet in their unrelenting pursuit of the perfect shot.”
“Action sports photographers are as crazy as the athletes, and they do it all for a single frame. The perfect frame.”
“Thank you for risking it all to remind us that the human spirit is irrepressible, that taking risks is what makes us feel alive, and above all, that we need to take care of this beautiful planet.”
Red Bull Illume, the world’s premier action sports and adventure photography contest, is now open for submissions. You can submit your photos for entry through the contest’s website. It’s free to enter, submissions close on March 31st, and the prizes are valued at over $100,000.
