Dangling on the edge: Life of a daredevil photographer

I did a search for Kos Evans and turned up nothing , so here goes; Kos Evans is a sailing photographer famous for her daring mast head photography. Good artilce about her on CNN.com today. The pictures in the article are stunning and I recccomend going through the slideshow. Here is an excerpt from the article



Dangling from the top of a 20 meter mast while bouncing along the open waves would test even the most hardened sailor's stomach.

If the vertigo doesn't rattle you, the mast lurching at a 45 degree angle will. Then there's the real possibility the whole boat could capsize under the strain -- plunging you deep under water with it.

But for maritime photographer Kos Evans -- who pioneered the hazardous art of masthead photography and bagged some of sailing's greatest images in the process -- it's all part of the day-job.

The extraordinary pictures, taken from masts up to 10 storeys-high, capture sailors the size of ants scuttling around on sleek white decks, surrounded by churning ocean and enormous rippling sails.

If anyone out there still thinks that photography is not a legitimate art form, this pic should convert them.
