In our next video throwback, Red Bull Illume joins photographer Markus Berger at his shoot with Red Bull's winter athletes. The concept of the shoot, supported by Red Bull Creative, 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.
Red Bull Illume is the world's premier action and adventure sports photography competition. The 2013 Image Quest uncovered a new, stunning collection of images.
It’s your last chance to sign up for the 2015 Wings For Life World Run on May 3! It’s a worthy cause that the action sports and adventure photography community can identify with and 100% of the proceeds go to Wings for Life, funding spinal cord research projects all over the world. We ask all photographers, athletes and members of our community to join the Red Bull Illume team in signing up!
The Wings For Life World Run has an exciting and unique race format: thirty minutes after the athletes start, a catcher car will begin to follow. Driving slowly first but increasing its speed at given periods in time, the catcher car is the moving finish line. Equipped with electronic sensors, the catcher car will pass the athletes, registering their digital chips on its way to the leaders. The last athlete to be caught worldwide will be the global champion!
Online registration closes on April 28 at 11 am UTC. NOTE: In some countries you can pay to enter the race on the day. Registrations will be available until two hours before the race starts, so visit the website to see if your nearest location still has available tickets.
The Red Bull Illume team is proud to support Wings for Life with a percentage of proceeds from our Top 250 hardcover photobooks, and now we ask you to join us and lets run together!
