I photographed Felix with his mum Eva at Redbull Hangar 7 in Salzburg for a British Sunday paper.

For those who may not know, Felix Baumgartner is the Redbull man who jumped off an air baloon at an altitude of 38.969m. The stunt gave him the world's record for the height of the jump and for being the first man breaking the sound barrier outside a vehicle. For 17 seconds difference though the free fall time record is still held by Joe Kittinger's 1960 jump.
