Exit Site Photos

Although I’m neck deep in tiling my bathroom, I did escape for a bit on Saturday for an afternoon with Neil Amonson, Blaine Sampson and some other base jumpers.  This time I really wanted to be up close for photos of what they call the exit site.  This would be where they actually jump off the cliff.  We had great weather, and beautiful timing with the sun for the second jump.  It’s definitely amazing to watch these guys.  One minute they’re standing next to you, the next they’re falling at a very fast speed towards the ground.

 Enjoy!

  1. Great shots Nate – they look like cover shots to me! I bet you can’t wait to get the bathroom done, so you can spend more time with these guys!

  2. That’s for sure! We’re close, just one or two more nights of tiling, and then finish up with the grout. These guys have been really fun to go shooting with. Hopefully I’ll continue shooting with them once or twice a month.

  3. Thanks for the comment. Although what you’re taking pictures of is a lot more exciting than pretty girls in dorm hallways.

  4. Wow, those are wild. Love the lighting and composition in the second one!
