Ginger Huber: Professional Cliff Diver

Ginger Huber is really strong and really flexible.

A few weeks ago after class I asked her if she was a gymnast and she said diver.

hm. ok, diver.

I’ve never met a diver before. Never seen a dive show.

I truly don’t know a darn thing about diving…not even enough to carry a conversation.

But, in school I studied Fine Art

and took years of figure drawing and figure sculpture classes

I love the human figure.

The shape and definition of muscles is so remarkable

particularly on an elite athlete.

After sitting near her (stalking?) a few times I asked if I could take her picture.

I just knew that I could capture some of that focus and strength. ….

She has that intensity.

Turns out, she’s also a world-class cliff diver

oh.

 She was also featured in ESPN’s The Magazine 2014 Body Issue, see video:

And, she’s sponsored by Infinitum Health http://www.infinitumhealth.com .. in case you forgot to click on the links, she dives from a 20 meter platform.

that’s about 60 feet.

!!!!!

 I really had no idea.

And that’s a good thing,

because I never would have asked to take her picture had I known.

Not in a million years,

And luckily I did, and she was game.

Ginger is married to her coach Chris Huber.

She is diving in all of the Red Bull Cliff Diving competitions this Summer, and will compete again in Kazan, Russia at the FINA High Diving World Cup 2015

from July 24- August 6.
