Red Bull Illume

Stoked to have made the final 50 images in this years Red Bull illume Photo Contest with this shot of Reggie Crist. It was entered in the Playground category. Have to say the winning image for Playground was pretty epic. A bmx tube ride shot by Tim Korbmacher rider Stefan Lantschner. Cant argue with Tim and Stefan’s win. Check it out Here

I have to give props to Red Bull, although I wouldn’t jump to promote their product, the support they lend to the action sport arena is undeniable. This photo contest is a rare opportunity for action photographers to display their work. For the most part (Action Sports Photography) is relegated to the major sports… Baseball, Basketball, Football etc. So called extreme sports are sometimes considered second class often leaving both the photographers and athletes with limited access to recognition among the general public. This contest is one of the rare opportunities for the world to see some of the top work being produced. Thanks Red Bull!

Also have to thanks the boys at SEABA. Without those guys images like this never happen.
