Red Bull Illume - my favourite photograph

I went to the Red Bull Illume photo exhibition the other day in Dublin. Some incredible shots of really fit folk. Of course as I have a one-track mind, I was looking out for female photographers or pics of female athletes. Not so many. But one of the finalists was Camilla Stoddart with this great shot of base-jumper Josie Symons diving from a 1,000m cliff in New Zealand. You can see more of Stoddart's work on her site Camilla Stoddard Photography.

Base jumping; now there's something I would like to try some day. I probably should try sky-diving first though!

Camilla Stoddart said...

Thanks Niamh. Was incredible to be there representing women in the sport and women who shoot... Keep it up girls!

@ Olive - it looks intense!I think sky-diving would feel safer?!

@ Camilla - no problem, it was great fun seeing so many fantastic photographers in one place. Good luck with your work!

That is dramatic! I wondered where this was, but I see Camilla is based in Wanaka in the S.I. so maybe somewhere in that beautiful part of the country. Hurray for female photographers, too!

@ Marie - Mount Aspiring National Park, looks amazing there.
