Playing with Fire: Valkyrie Photoshoot with Brianne Thompson

“For the one year anniversary of launching the Valkyrie, we wanted to create a continuation of the original Valkyrie Ad (see below) first released early last year. Sticking with the same theme, we aimed to showcase a strong female figure as the personification of the Valkyrie. Brianne Thompson of AXIS Flight School was chosen. As a strong, confident, talented woman in the sport, she was a natural choice for the ad.

The photo was shot at Skydive Arizona with the help of Nik Daniel (AXIS Flight School), Steve Curtis (Arizona Arsenal), and photographer Justin Carmody. In case you were wondering, the fire is 100% real and no Valkyrie canopies were harmed in the making. We only had three chances to get the winning shot due to weather and lighting conditions, but after some rainy days, tense moments, and hot swoops (literally!), we finally captured the perfect shot seen here.”
