As in our last, sad video of gear destruction - Just Like the Pros - Almost - this one also ends in carnage. Photographer Chase Jarvis has a slight mishap while experimenting with the DJI Phantom drone and Sony RX100II camera in Iceland. Moral of the story? Don't experiment with drones, especially those carrying cameras - near water. Oops. This one was definitely NOT staged.

We have another "behind the scenes" with the Leica S-System to show you - though not with the Red Cross this time. Red Bull Illume joins photographer Markus Berger on this studio shoot with Red Bull's winter athletes. The concept was to create a set of unique action shots and portraits with a continuous theme that revealed the athletes as individuals but also part of a team. Each athlete was shot "in action," sometimes using climbing ropes to hold them in place. The shoot also included a light-hearted and experimental aspect to showcase the athlete's individual character.

I wanted to create this short film to express the passion I have for my 2 favorite things, Photography and Racing. For me there is a strong similarity or connection between the experiences, I wanted to express that in my video. I hope you enjoy watching, you can relate, and share in the passion of Leica M Photography with me.
