This was taken over the city of Detroit in 2009 during the Red Bull Air Race. Here the Red Bull skydivers parachuted in over the downtown area right before the start of the race. It was really sweet seeing them swoop in from the clouds, smoke trails following them just like the racing planes that were about to race over the Detroit River between the USA and Canada. Red Bull sure knows how to throw a party and make an event exciting – as evidenced by the stunt people raining from the sky.
Photographer: Chris Horner (Charlotte, North Carolina USA) Registered
Chris Horner is a freelance photographer based in Charlotte, North Carolina USA. Chris started becoming serious about photography about four years ago. His main topic of interest is in capturing urban scenes. Chris started primarily with this theme, and then carried his photography skills into another area that he loves – vehicles and racing. Others began taking notice of his work through what he shared on the web and in person. Soon he was creating fine art prints for people to enjoy in their homes and offices. That in turn got the attention of some local small business owners, who started requesting Chris to create images they could use in their marketing. Chris is looking to grow his commercial business since he has always enjoyed working with other entrepreneurs and helping business owners find success in their endeavors.
