Luci Romberg - Free Runner - Red Bull - Art of Motion

Some of you may know I love working with stunt professionals.  One of these professionals is Luci Romberg. A champion gymnast and US representative in the American Ninja Warrior competition. Luci allowed us to photograph her on fire for #RedBulls #RedBulletin Magazine.  The very accomplished gang from Action Factory provided the fire along with their brilliant safety team.  All fire in this image is real. The only retouching was to remove the harness crease and suspension cables.  Outside of the time it took setting up our lighting and fire tests, this has to be one of the shortest photo shoots I've completed.  About 8 seconds. To show good will and that I'm no chicken, Action Factory gave me a little dose of flame so I could feel what it's like to be set on fire.  See snappy video below. 

Do know, these are award winning professional stunt practitioners.  They have the best safety equipment and products on the market.  Even if you're a seasoned Burner, you'd do well having Action Factory at your side.
