A behind the scenes look at a photo shoot for BlackRapid Straps and CD Artwork for Paul Andrews. Shot at a castle built in the 1930's in Medellin, Colombia. "El Castillo" was inspired by a gothic castle from France. Check out Blackrapid.com for the new RS-Sport strap and Culturasparalelas.blogspot.com to see Paul Andrews in parkour action. The last picture in this post was shot by Johanna who loves to do multiple exposures. I thought it suited my personality. Lightenupandshoot! Mikey
