One of the most interesting parts of skydiving is the photographers. They are the guys that are flying behind the lens to capture your experience with beautiful pictures and video that we all love to see all over the social media and the internet. Jack has a special helmet that hasa a video camera and a still camera mounted on it. The photographs are snapped using a remote shudder release that he bites when your make the perfect smile!  Many of Jacks photos appear all over Oklahoma Skydiving Centers Website!Here is a picture of Jack right after completing a demonstration jump into a football game.  We do offer demonstration jumps at Oklahoma Skydiving Center for more info Click DEMO JUMPS
