It was one of the Red Bull Rampage training sessions in 2019 when riders started to pull tricks off the first drop, and practice for the finals. I shot a couple of photos on this drop, and showed how big and steep it is, but I didn’t like the perspective. I really wanted to show the surroundings, and that it’s the middle of nowhere, and it simply looks like a desert. Personally I’m not a big fan of vertical photos, so deciding to shoot it vertically wasn’t easy, but I knew I only had one chance to shoot it on that day, so I took the risk and I think it paid off!
The wait is over and we can finally share the first new images of this year's Red Bull Illume Image Quest! Every week, we announce the semi-finalists of a different category, so stay tuned for more mind-blowing images.
