Follow Friday: Roof Topper Photographers

Published by Diana Tula · April 19th 2013

Inspired by the Follow Friday hashtag movement on twitter we started a new feature on our blog. With Follow Friday posts you can discover new, popular and up-and-coming photographers from 500px to follow and add to friends. Today we are focusing on Roof Topper photographers.

Roof Topper

Hiding behind a clown mask is a talented Toronto based photographer, who wowed the world with his photo “i'll make ya famous”. Visit his profile to see gravity defying photos and fall in love with the heights.

Alexander Remnev

Alexander makes roof topping seem effortless. Going through his work you’ll see photos taken from the highest and most challenging places in Moscow. Images are taken despite weather conditions, snow, thunder, who cares? One of our favourite photos by Alexander is “get height”.

Anton Vaganov

Anton Vaganov is a talented Russian roof topper from the north capital of Russia — St. Petersburg. What makes his roof topping photos stand out are unique and clever setups and ideas. Among his portfolio you can also find beautiful candid street photos and portraits of his friends.

Karim Nafatni

With saturated photos and HDR Karim conquers the magical heights of Dubai. When browsing his profile be on a lookout for a really cool inside the airplane photo.

Ivan Kuznetsov

When I stumbled upon this photo today I remembered just how much I am afraid of heights! Currently Ivan has only a few photos up on 500px, but they are certainly worth your attention.

Neil Ta

We’re so happy to feature a second Toronto photographer (PS In case you didn’t know 500px is from Toronto as well). Neil Ta has a great mix in his portfolio of travel, urban exploration and roof topping photos. Climbing tower cranes and rooftops he gets great Toronto views.

Kirill Vselensky

Travel to Russia with roof top, street and travel photos by Kirill. You can’t help but wonder that there must be something very special about Russia. All this crazy roof topper talent is just mind blowing.

proletariat class

We fell in love with proletariat’s photos as soon as we saw images with the film-like post processing. Turns out that proletariat favours the untypical processing of photos, experimenting with different styles and techniques. Take a look for yourself and enjoy his work.

Vadim Makhorov

Vadim travels the world with a group of daredevil photographers, climbing unimaginable heights and structures. If you think that this photo looks familiar you could have seen it on the CNN. Can’t say that we didn’t save the best for last.

We hope you enjoyed this roundup! This is the first Follow Friday post in this genre and we can’t wait to share more features with you. Come back next Friday for incredible photographers to follow and get inspired by. Visit last post Follow Friday: Family Photographers and discover great talents.

You forgot about me!

In fact I like nobody of these rooftop-photographers, maybe Roman Wersh has more interesting photos for me.

I'm sure even in rural areas you can take really awesome roof topping style photos too :) When creating this feature I started thinking how cool roof topping would look in abandoned towns or areas. That's the project I'd love to do :)
