Hi! I'm Shane Hillyard, aka “Croshane," from Skydive Milwaukee! I am a photographer, filmmaker, and media creator. My passion stems from a deep love of everything visual. I create with a deep understanding and produce high quality content. I’m a film school graduate where I learned everything I know. I’ve created over 1k videos over the years so I know the process pretty well. When it gets hard and frustrating I bring a great attitude with a huge smile. It makes any problem doable and fun at the same time. I’m here if you have any camera/ editing questions or uploading problems. I’m your guy. The most important thing is have fun! You can view my work on my Vimeo page and on Instagram.

Hi! I am Lika Borzova from Skydive Voss in Norway! I've been skydiving since 2000, and flying tunnel since 2012. I have also been base jumping from 2002 till 2013, but that is in the past now and not gonna happen again. :) I have 5+ years experience working as a cameraperson for different TV-companies and projects. That includes a couple of years filming for MTV: from news show reports, to livestreams of big scale shows and concerts. I have been making boogie and event day tapes for a few years, starting in 2012. I can help you with questions on camera usage and how to capture the right shot! Most of my videos can be found on my Vimeo channel.
Hi! I’m Gen Montreuil from Skydive Arizona! I am a double major with honors at Arizona State University. Intermedia, which is video, animation, 3D Immersive environments, and photography. I work at Skydive Arizona as a tandem videographer. I’m fluent in the Adobe Suites and use a Canon t7i Digital Rebel for both stills and video, and a Hero 4. I also have experience with Sony video cameras. I am a multi-disciplinary artist who produces ethnographic images, 3D virtual installations, and video focusing on skydiving, and the culture within the sport. Much of my work discusses the validity of skydiving as an actual sport, as well as highlighting the challenges, often from a women’s perspective. Take a look at my work on my Vimeo channel.

Mark 'Trunk' Kirschenbaum
Hi! I’m Mark 'Trunk' Kirschenbaum from Skydive Arizona! I started a business in skydiving camera equipment called Hypoxic to help extreme sports athletes take the perfect picture -- and grab the very awesomest video. Hypoxic innovates rugged, high-technology gear that meets the exacting image-capture challenges we face in skydiving, at BASE exits, on paragliding launches, and anywhere else that footage can get gnarly. I am a great resource for questions about mounting equipment, getting safe shots or for getting the right camera gear. I am also a camera flyer and photographer, so I can help answer questions about how to get the shots you are looking for. See our gear and my work on the Hypoxic website.
