Photojournalist Jeffery Werner has just put together Incredible Stunts: The Chaos, Crashes, and Courage of the Worlds Wildest Stuntmen and Daredevils (Incredible Features, Inc.), a coffee table photo book of professional movie stuntmen and daredevils in action.
Werner has been on many wild shoots throughout his career, including one with a daredevil whos specialty was picking up razor blades with his eyeball.
Hes also photographed a guy whos stunt was swallowing a power drill.
He recalls, I took pictures of him during the stunt and pictures of him afterwards in the hospital, getting X-rays.
Werner has a strong stomach for weird photography and hiding behind his camera helps him witness things without losing his lunch.
He once shot a barf artist whos talent was hurling on command, who was also an ordained minister and performed mock wedding ceremonies where hed throw up on the couples at the end.
Werner says, If it werent for my camera in front of my face, I couldve never watched that!
