SHOOTING IDEA: ADRENALINE KICK!

New Zealand is famous for its landscapes and for the efforts made to ensure the safe practice of a very broad range of extreme sports.

Many tourists travel to New Zealand have at least one of these experiences on their “To-Do list”. From the teenager wanting to impress to the professionals in quest of the perfect move. And from the future husband at his stag-do to the elderly gent celebrating his 70th birthday by jumping off a plane. We are so many looking for that adrenaline kick.

There are many opportunities for these images to be used. An article about living life to the fullest, a tourism brochure about a specific region, an advertisement talking about risk, or a wall display to decorate an airport departure lounge. Many clients also use such images to catch attention and convey emotions such as “being brave”, “being strong”, “being audacious”, “the force of the elements”, “being in touch with Nature”, “safety first” etc.

We are looking for new images of people practicing extreme sports:

  • All ages (so long as legal for the specific activity) and demographics.
  • Images should be focused on the people (1/4 page minimum) and portray them having fun. The location is secondary to the person.
  • All images featuring people will need to be model released.

TIP: We know that Extreme Sports experiences can quickly become expensive. Why not do a reciprocal deal with an operator or local group – negotiate a discount or even better, a free deal for you and your model(s)? Or they can sign releases so the images can come into One Shot as part of the deal. You could offer the company the use of your images (free of charge or discounted license) to advertise their business. If you need help figuring something out, let us know what opportunities or ideas you have.
