This is an ad for Atomic Skis that I shot in Alaska last spring time. It was shot with a Canon 1DMKIV and a 300mm f2.8 L IS with a 1.4 teleconverter on it. The helicopter dropped me off on an opposite ridge to the line the guys were skiing on so I was quite some distance away. The skier in the shot is professional freeskier Tim Durtchi and the guys from Poorboyz Productions were also on hand to film the action for their movie Revolver. I knew Tim was going to do this trick off the cliff so I set up to shoot the sequence at 10fps. In the end, when it came to putting the whole sequence together I only needed to use every other frame from the sequence. Below is the original shot before it was turned into the ad.
