Photographer Shoots Skydivers with a Helmet DSLR and Mouth Release

Skydivers often photograph and film their jumps with a GoPro camera, but what happens if you want to shoot higher-quality photos with a DSLR? The solution is to mount it to your helmet and find a way to trigger the shutter.

Photographer Wolfgang Lienbacher demonstrated this recently by jumping out of a plane with the Red Bull Skydive team with a DSLR on his head and a shutter release cable in his mouth.

How I Shot NBA Star Anthony Davis Dunking the Sun

Red Bull recently came to me with an interesting idea: "We'd like you to photograph NBA star Anthony Davis dunking the sun.”

I responded, “Can we also have him dunk the moon?”

Photographer Shoots Airplane Flyby with 30 Strobes

When photographing Czech aerobatics and fighter pilot Martin Šonka recently, photographer Dan Vojtěch wanted to capture the plane in a different light than other photographers have done in the past. He then decided that he would shoot the plane in motion, but light it like he would a studio photo using flashes firing around it.

Photographing Stunt Biker Danny MacAskill in Front of a Solar Eclipse

One of the many amazing photographs that emerged after the recent total solar eclipse was this epic shot of stunt biker Danny MacAskill soaring down a hill with the moon eclipsing the sun in the background. Many on the Internet immediately called the shot a "fake," but it's far from it.

It took photographer Rutger Pauw quite a bit of planning and a healthy dose of luck to capture the memorable photograph.

Capturing a Handshake at 33,000ft for Red Bull

How in the world do you capture a photograph like the one above? Or any of the ones below for that matter? How do you deal with temperatures that run in the negative 50s Celsius, at an altitude where any real camera would likely mean breaking your skydiving videographer's neck, and still deliver great shots of an incredible feat of skydiving?

Well, it took a year and a half of preparation and the challenges were seemingly never-ending, but photographer Dom Daher figured it out, and he was kind enough to share his photos and some of what he learned with us.

BTS: Ultra-Stable MoVI Footage Shot While Flying Through the Air on Skis

The MōVI freefly systems are very expensive, there's no denying that. But when you see this behind the scenes video and the footage that the Red Bull Media House was able to capture with it while the camera man launched off massive jumps and flew through the air on skis, you'll never wonder whether or not it's worth it again.

GoPro Releases Inspirational POV Footage from Stratos Jump

During Felix Baumgartner's record-breaking Stratos jump from 128,100 feet above the Earth, he was packing a total of seven GoPro Hero2's on his person. Red Bull has been slow to release all the footage from the jump and a couple of days ago we found out why -- it seems they were saving it for the short film "Red Bull Stratos -- The Full Story."

Red Bull Releases Multiple Angle POV and Mission Data Video from Stratos Skydive

Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Austrian daredevil Felix Baumgartner's insane Red Bull Stratos skydive from the edge of space. As the whole world watched, Baumgartner plummeted towards Earth from a mind-blowing 128,100 feet, ultimately landing safely.

The man free fell for a total of four minutes and twenty-two seconds, and if you want to watch the whole inspirational/terrifying experience from his point of view, now you can.

Red Bull Teams Up with Instagrammers to Document Cliff Diving in Stop Motion

Red Bull has an appreciation for the potential of mixing photography with death-defying stunts. If you need an example, look no further than some of the Red Bull Illume projects we've covered in the past.

But Red Bull's most recent foray into photography didn't have to do with epic light painting or expensive gear: instead, the company teamed up with three top U.K. Instagrammers to document the Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series in stop motion.

Paramotoring and Light Painting, Where Sport Meets Art

About a week ago, Red Bull Illume and Snap! Orlando revealed a collaboration they were working on called "Motion to Light," in which they paired the fluid motion of certain sports with light painting. Part one used photographer Patrick Rochon and a team of wakeboarders to capture some stunning pics. Now a week later, we have part two. And the sport of choice? Paramotoring.

Promo Idea: Use Tiny DSLR USB Drives to Make Sure Your Photos Are Seen

To promote this year's edition of its sports photography competition, Red Bull Illume is sending out a pretty slick promo. It's simply a USB drive loaded with a press media kit, but the presentation is so clever that we thought we'd share it with you (perhaps you can do something similar to promote your own photography business).
