Photographers will go great lengths for the perfect shot. The series Chasing the Shot by Red Bull Media House dives deep into what drives some of the most renowned photographers of the adventure sport world.

Travel with some of the industry's most talented photographers to some of the best and most remote locations on this planet on their journeys to capture the perfection.

In one of the episodes we follow photographer Leroy Bellet on his quest to film some of the world’s best barrel riders, on some of the world’s most dangerous waves. The result is more than a few terrifying moments, but also some of the most epic surf footage ever captured.
