Model poses on terrifying cliff spire in scariest glamor photoshoot you’ve ever seen


With a huge, flowing dress acting almost like a sail in the strong winds, one model braved one of the most daring and biting photoshoots you’ve ever seen.

Kristina Marie Folcik-Welts teetered on a cliff spire as gusts threatened to blow her up.

Kristina even had to camp on The Eaglet’s spire in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire, USA overnight in preparation for the jaw-dropping two-day shoot.

But as terrifying as it sounds, photographer Jay Philbrick made sure she was securely attached to the rock at all times.

The 62-year-old – who has hosted daredevil shoots with his wife Vicki Philbrick for the past 12 years – said: “It was very windy on both days and we were having trouble managing the dress.

“She couldn’t blow, but we thought the wind would be a problem.

“In the end, some of the more spectacular shots were about the wind – it really worked out really well.”

Jay, from North Conway, New Hampshire, worked closely with mountain guide Marc Chauvin and clothing designer Alice Elizabeth Andrews Designs.

Jay, of Philbrick Photography, said: “There were five of us carrying all the gear to the base of the climb, but Marc, Kristina and I were the only ones on the set itself.

“The Eaglet session took an afternoon, a night and a morning because we wanted to have a pre-dawn shoot.

“We had already climbed it to make sure it was possible to get Kristina up there, with all the equipment.”
