Why get a skydiving video? People take pictures of what they are up to all the time: capturing scrumptious meals, exotic destinations, and even daily occurrences to be optically digested by friends, family, and folks they may not even know. In an endless landscape of visual stimulus, how do you stand out?
Well, if you were already planning on completing a tandem skydive, we have the answer. Without a doubt, there is something inherently captivating about a skydiving video. It’s easy to scroll right past another post of your buddy’s pet, but many will stop stone cold in their tracks seeing that same friend starring in their own skydiving video.
Don’t Miss A Single Moment
The benefit of getting a skydiving photo or video package is not solely centered on the opportunity to present your accomplishment to others. (Although, it is a lot of fun to gather up family and friends to check out your latest endeavor) Rather, the fun of a skydiving video is having the ability to recount each and every moment of what could be the most thrilling day of your life.
Admittedly, because of the stimulus overload that the brain experiences during that first skydive, it may be tough to recall the day in detail especially the moments leading up to your maiden voyage in skydiving! The footage before and after will help you preserve the pivotal moments that your memory might eclipse in favor of the thrilling feeling of freefall.
Truly, one of the perks of a skydiving video is being able to take yourself back in time. Skydiving videos are the perfect way to capture the energy and excitement of your first skydive and allow you to relive the experience again and again.

How To Look Good In Skydiving Videos
No one we know wants to pay good money to have their picture taken while they are looking busted. Following these pro tips can ensure you look your best when you take center stage!
Dress For Success
If you want to look fly in your skydiving video, you will need to dress for success. Although, for skydiving, this aesthetic may be different than you’d think. Looking good is important but not so much that it should take priority over selecting clothing that is activity-appropriate. Skydiving is a physical activity and activewear is the best choice for a skydiving ensemble.
One of the primary concerns would-be skydiving video stars have is how their face is going to look in that 120 mph freefall. Truly, the fear of flappy cheeks is pervasive! Luckily, the fix is easy: smile! Not only will this prevent an unflattering facial expression from being captured on film, but in a neat trick of psychology, may actually help you to relax and enjoy the experience even more.
Often, a skydiving video will include an interview before your skydiving experience and an interview after. While it might seem cool to play it tough, the best course of action is honesty. The best skydiving videos showcase your personal skydiving transformation.
Pick the Right Skydiving Caption
A picture is worth a thousand words and the skydiving caption only adds to its impact! We think these skydiving quotes work well when paired with skydiving photos or videos.
“Why walk when you can fly?”
“And once you have tasted flight you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you would return.” Fun Fact: Though often misattributed to DaVinci, this line was actually penned by John Hermes Secondari in 1965 for an episode of The Saga of Modern Man titled “I, Leonardo DaVinci” Either way, it’s a perfect skydiving quote to sum up the craving for flight you’ll feel after tasting freefall.
A reworked line from Toni Morrison’s Song Of Solomon also makes a beautiful skydiving caption: “If you surrender to the air, you can ride it.”
Lastly, this is one of our all-time favorite skydiving quotes: “To those that jump, no explanation is necessary, To those that don’t jump, no explanation is possible”
