As 2020 starts and 2010 closes it was a great honor to have one of my images selected by Outside Magazine – “Our Favorite Outdoor Adventure Photography of the 2010s”  Adventure photography is a very competitive field and it felt great to get recognition by one of the leaders in the industry.

Outside Magazine Exposure Section “Our Favorite Outdoor Adventure Photography” Matt Baldelli BASE Jumping Photo.

A little behind the scenes of this image: “Baldelli and his friend Matthew Holmes traveled to Moab, Utah, in March 2015 for a few days of hurling off giant rock features with a parachute on their backs. The two had met a week earlier at a BASE-jumping class in Twin Falls, Idaho, and were eager to follow it up with a visit to one of the sport’s meccas. Dur­ing the trip they stopped at Looking Glass Rock, south of town. As Holmes climbed the arch to prepare, Baldelli tucked himself underneath it and captured his friend as he leaped from the edge. “I got back as far as I could to frame him in the arch,” Baldelli says. “It was a really cool perspective.”
The Tools: Nikon D800, 16mm fish-eye lens, ISO 200, f/2.8, 1/2,000 second”

Thank you to everyone who worked hard helping this BASE Jumping photograph and all my Adventure and Outdoor stills and motion come together, creating any content is a team effort!

P.S. I love that they highlighted my last name!
