After a day of flying drones and exploring outside of the city, my friends told me about this awesome bridge that I’ve never been to. Tunnels are one of my favorite locations to shoot in so we headed there immediately. My friend Sanjeev told me that he used to do parkour back in the day so I knew that I had to incorporate some movement into this scene.
