The popular Red Bull Illume photo contest is in its third year, and it is attracting deep talent. Photographers and their athlete subjects have combined forces to create some mind blowing imagery. Below are 13 shots that I just had to share. It’s hard to decide what’s more impressive in a many of these: the photo or the athletic performance. Early on in my career my work was almost exclusively dedicated to the world of action and adventure sports and as a result I had the pleasure of working with Red Bull on many photo shoots with many of the best athletes of the day. The folks at Red Bull have always been integral in helping showcase some of the most exciting and creative action sports photography on the planet as art.

This from Red Bull’s website:
“The Image Quest 2013 is the 3rd edition of the competition after 2007 and 2010. From tens of thousands of entries, 50 images in ten categories are selected by international judges and photo editors from renowned publications.

The overall winner will receive the new Leica S camera, while category winners will each receive a Leica X2. Other prizes will include broncolor’s new Move, their portable flash, and the latest strap system from Sun-Sniper.

At the end of August, the top 50 Red Bull Illume finalists will be invited to attend a grand ceremony in the city of Hong Kong where the winners will be unveiled. Once the winners have been announced these 50 finalist images then travel around the world as a unique and stand-alone photo exhibition. To showcase the illumination, the exhibitions always open at night-time only.”

Enjoy and have a great weekend!
