    I love this!! I’m an urban explorer and photographer (IG:@hennessyvander)
    based in LA, so I can totally relate. It’s mostly rooftops and ruins here
    on the West Coast, but it’s always amazing nonetheless. You don’t know
    satisfaction until you’ve climbed endless flights of stairs, discover a way
    into a rooftop where you’re not supposed to be, and sit at the edge, just
    drinking in the life and vibrancy around you. Each experience is worth the
    many risks involved. And Instagram’s truly a valuable networking tool among
    us photographers and models. This episode covered a good portion of what we
    do, and I loved every second of it. Hope to see more like it!!

    They meet on Instagram, then they risk arrest for their next shot.

    artistic photography.

    Man, I used to do this as a teenager. It started as skate videos too. Now
    I’m all nostalgic and I’m psyched to try it again..

    This is great but……death can happen.

    Anything which may involve u dying should be avoided. Its great to watch
    but imagine if a mistake happens.

    And mistake are bound to happen.
