High risk photography: Fashion edition
We have looked at a couple of high risk photography examples in the last few posts and today’s post is no exception. This particular post explores the true risk of getting the perfect shot. Photographer Ben Von Wong brought models down 75 feet beneath the surface of the ocean and photographed them chained to a ship wreck. Personally I think the photographs are incredibly stunning, but I am not sure if this sort of high risk photography is too much of a physical danger to the models involved.
I love this particular article because Von Wong shares some photos that show how this high risk photography shoot was pulled off. These behind-the-scene photographs reveal all the coordination and talent required to pull off these sorts of images and I think that alone makes the final photographs even more intriguing.
Be sure and watch the video until 2:30 where Von Wong talks about how to assemble a team capable of pulling this sort of vision off. What he says really speaks volumes about valuing passion over skill.
