Roof topping: Traveling Up to Shoot Down

This exquisite shot by Neil Ta reflects a block of the Bay Street financial district of Toronto, vertically, in the foreground building.   He’s a roof topper, a daredevil photographer who travels up to shoot down.

The photo practice is widely catching on, and The Toronto Star just published a piece about its aficionados, a good opportunity to post some of Ta’s work from the heights of this city.

  1. Especially like the first photo. This is something I couldn’t do, I would be clinging to the edge with one hand and my camera in the would be over the edge and I would be shooting down blind. Don’t like heights that much but I still enjoy the views.


  2. Thanks for taking the time to comment, and so true about how good these shots are. Knowing Toronto probably also makes you more appreciative of the skill. (Nice blog you run)
