Behind the Scenes of a Thrilling HUGO BOSS Shoot

This amazing photograph of sailor Alex Thomson walking on the keel of an 8-tonne 60ft  carbon fibre yacht was created with big cojones and great balance rather than Photoshop. It was for an ad for HUGO BOSS, which has sponsored Alex Thomson Racing since 2003. The conditions for the shot had to be just right, and the skipper had to carefully keep the yacht at a 45-degree angle for up to a minute to avoid crushing Thomson and the jet ski driver. Pretty wild stuff!


Here’s a behind-the-scenes vid on how "TheKeel Walk" image was made:
