Spending a little time at Kjerag. A few days ago I brought my camera to the mountain to catch some of the action.

Base Jumping Heli Boogie Kjerag 2011 – Impressions

Spent one day at the Stavanger B.A.S.E. Klubb Heli Boogie at Kjerag 2011. This was for me a great opportunity to bring my camera along to catch some of the action. A perfect day to freeze some of the fantastic people for just a single moment – on the ground, on the mountain and in the air.

Let me know what you think!

Gary Connery Bremont Wingman “It’s finally happening, the landing is ON for this Wednesday!!!”

Wednesday May 23rd it’s GAME ON for Gary Connery’s wingsuit landing in a pile of boxes. After a month of waiting we finally get to see his spectacular stunt. According to his Twitter stream @GaryConnery he did some solid training in Brento Italy a few weeks back, perfecting his slow flying skills.

So, after carefully nursing his 18,600 boxes, and having his hair done, he looks to be set for a full action day tomorrow.

Stay tuned to a Vimeo or Youtube channel near you! (unless you are in the UK where you can watch it live on Sky News)

Latest update is this image from Mark Sutton (source: Twitter.com). Dry boxes and blue skies! Yes!
