“What was that video? What is happening? Who does these things?” That is the opening sequence to the brand new eye-opening video ‘The Air Up There‘ created by Toronto photographers and features BASE jumpers and extreme climbers jumping from the tallest structures. Those are questions you may also be asking after watching the video!
Having camera gear stolen sucks. Having camera gear stolen while out on assignment really sucks. Veteran sports photographer Gary Hershorn can testify to that first hand.

For some impossible realities. For others, like Canadian photographer Thomas Dagg, a daily sighting.
Thomas takes the wonderful streets of Toronto and mixes it with his childhood memories. The city succumbs to Thomas’s strong memories of renting the trilogy over at Blockbusters, through almost dying to get a Chewbacca action figure.
