Flashback to last year when @chris_sharma climbed a #redwood in Northern California. Chris worked closely with biologist and arborist's to ensure that the tree wasn't harmed in anyway. It was an incredibly fun and unique photo shoot to work on and short film to direct. Chris is a legend, good friend and always a blast to hang with and work with. To get this photo @dangpix was positioned high in the canopy holding 2 high powered strobes to illuminate Chris, the tree and freeze the action. The exposure was about an 1/8th of a second, as I hit the shutter I zoomed the lens out creating the motion lines in the ambient light. Thank you @redbull and @nightline for another great shoot! @seatoskycablecam @joshpovec @nelsoncarayannis @mindframecinema @3stringsproductions
