How’s this for a unique class photo? A group of university students in Switzerland recently visited the 8,114ft (2,473m) Pierre Avoi mountain in the Swiss Alps, used ropes to hang off a cliff together, and posed for a mind-bending sideways class portrait.
On the day of the shoot, the students rode a helicopter to the mountain and hiked up to the photo spot. After setting up all the equipment, including benches and a sign, the students dropped down and posed for the hanging photographer.
The goal of the project was to shoot “the highest class picture.”
Here’s a 2-minute behind-the-scenes video showing how everything was done:
