Recently photographer Christoph Laue nailed a super cool aerial shot of rider Peter Henke. We gave him a shout to find out more about how he went about getting this epic shot.
“We found this awesome dirt spine near Adelaide. The idea of taking a picture from the top of the tree came into my mind as soon as I saw the spot,” says Christoph.
“At first I thought I could climb this tree somehow, but it was really rotten. So we organized a long ladder and decided to strap the gear to the tree and trigger the camera from the bottom. We had a Camera Ranger to trigger the camera from an iPad.”
“Then the only tricky part was to get the right moment, because the Camera Ranger had a delay from about half a second. The heat and Peter’s bruised hip were giving him a hard time. But finally we got the right moment and were pretty happy with the result!”
