25 Photographers Who Clearly Think That The End Justifies The Means

Published 4 years ago

How far would you go for the perfect shot? These folk right here already know the answer: as far as it takes, and then more. These photography daredevils show a remarkable degree of dedication to the craft. The simplest thing is to lay down on the ground – you might look silly for a few seconds, but, hey, the angle is worth it.

And then we get to things like stalking Hawaiian lava fields at night. Actual lava fields that take several lives each year. Or climbing icy mountains to snap pictures of your climbing guide scaling vertical ice walls. Or joining treks in Sahara to photograph the people who take part in such events. These examples are all taken from true accounts given by daring photographers.

But what about risking your life without moving further than 200 meter from a shower and a coffee shot? Well, then urban climbing has you covered in spades. Any tall structure will do, but skyscrapers and towers – both actual and radio – seem to be favored by people who risk tight concrete hugs to take mind-bending pictures. It also works if you’re the rebellious sort – many of such stunt probably bend a law or two, so you’re challenging the laws of both society and physics.

But hey, it’s all worth it in the end, isn’t it?
