Jamey Erickson's goal is to inspire through his BESPIN photo project. The project aims to launch weather balloons high enough into orbit to get some amazing shots of planet earth. Erickson's goal is to launch weather balloons five times over the course of the summer months.
The BESPIN photo project is a response to recent cuts made to NASA's funding and its shift in focus; Erickson feels like it is up to the common man to push the boundaries of exploration.
If you are interested in Jamey Erickson's BESPIN photo project, you should definitely check out his Kickstarter page and contribute any amount that your pocket will permit. This is a truly unique type of photography project that can serve as a catalyst for what's possible in the near future.
