Looking for kickass skydive pics - All due credit and more Can't Post

Hey gang,

I am starting a project on Instagram (link to come) and I am looking for kickass pictures of skydives. I know we have a lot of talented cameramen/camerawomen in our sport so looking to see if some would like to be featured.

All credit will be given to the photograph and I can even promote a link of any kind (Instagram profile, FB, website or email)

This is how we can work as a team. I get kickass pics and you get traffic and fame! :P

Thanks a lot,
Catherine Bernier

Well, this got me thinking - and it's a thought I've had for quite a time. The thought is: "My god - another one? why?"

I'd love to hear what others think about this. I am neither judging nor trying to keep you from doing what you wanna do. It's a free world and I think it is important to stay like this. (it is a legal grey-zone that is only grey because of social acceptance and the effort that must be pursued to fight for your right while at the same time loosing time to create plus loosing traffic because many people disagree. So I'm not going to sue anyone) Part of this free world are healthy discussions and I'd really like to hear other opinions. Sorry if this highjacks your thread! (maybe it will even steer traffic your way through)

I've been trying to make a living from photography exclusively for 10 years now and trying as hard as I can to combine this with skydiving. I am obviously professionally biased, and I love to learn new things every day :)

That said, check out my instagram: @lienbacher, you might find some. Yes this line also makes you legally entitled to use my work in your channel ;)

Oh, and please - don't start a skydiving shirt shop which you promote in the very first line and put the credit into the last line while not giving away any of your profit to the people who actually generate the content for you. As this makes me sick every time they tag me - yes, in this case I am unfortunately quite judgemental. I do see they are collecting the fruits of the work they put in. It's just, you know, I've put 15 years of work into learning how to create the content they "only collected", and I can't pay my rent with "fame", nor buy cameras, lenses, food, you get the point. Fortunately it does get me free tickets - as long as I work while jumping them ;)

Good luck with your project!
Wolfgang
