You have probably heard of a new photography fad called “rooftopping,” in which brave daredevils find the way to the top of skyscrapers and other tall buildings to snap majestic shots. Just imagine the buzz of the roof topper who reached the top of the highest building in the city and saw the incredibly breathtaking view.
If you want to try this craze, you should have a camera, a good head for heights and nerves of steel. Most of the buildings the photographers are scaling are kind of “off-limits” to the public. This fact also plays up the idea of rooftopping as something secret, rebellious and totally risky. Moreover, visiting a new city to find a perch to rise above the surroundings and look around is a great experience; you can feel like king of the world!
Not all of us are brave enough to mimic these dangerous roofing tricks. However, today, you have a unique chance to look at the world through the lens of talented photographer-rooftoppers. Here, I’ve put together 50 outstanding examples of rooftopping photography for your inspiration!
Hint: Just do not copy this in real life without special preparations.
