Shooting a Hike & Fly Adventure with Vitek Ludvik
Always wanted to know how to cover a hike & fly adventure? Red Bull X-Alps photographer Vitek Ludvik has some good tips for you...
"As a hike & fly photographer, it's important to choose a good wing as when you're shooting, you don't always have the time to just focus on the flying," says Vitek.
"I choose wings based on weight and usability. Right now, I use a wing that's light, because I have to carry it up the mountain and easy to fly, so I can fully concentrate on taking photos."
"The good thing about my harness is that you can use it to carry your glider. It turns inside out and turns into sort-of-a backpack."
"I had a lot of fun during the shoot. I hope Aaron likes the results. What was nice today is that I got to do the full hike & fly mission together with him. At the end, we made some really nice shots, so I'm looking forward to work on them."
