Kuba Konwent is currently one of the most successful extreme sport photographers and his works are stunning. By combining his two great passions – photography and skydiving – he created on his works a synergy of freedom, joy and energy that comes with every single jump. He flies with national teams of many skydiving disciplines and photographs the best skydivers all over the world.

However, before he discovered flying, he used to photograph different sports – bikes, planes, motocycles, kitesurfing and many more. He always knew his place is high above the clouds, but somehow his first jump was not made until 2014 when he visited a dropzone Sky Camp Baltic in northen Poland, located on the peninsula Hel. One minute he talks to the dropzone owner about how he would like to jump just to take one picture and moments later he flies above the Baltic Sea and sees the skydiver exiting the plane.

And that was it. The magic moment of “no return”. One week later he started his AFF training (Accelerated Free Fall). Despite unpleasant weather and windy conditions during this season, he waited every single day at the dropzone to jump. His biggest dream was to fly with a camera, but due to safety limitations a skydiver needs to get some experience before that.

After months of intense training and over 200 jumps, he was finally allowed to install a small action cam on his helmet. Another 100 jumps he trained to be a cameraman. Finally in 2016 he started to jump with full-frame camera on his head and his work are incredible.
