Sharing joy with Randy Walls in Desert Hot Springs

Randy Walls photographed by Eyoalha Baker for Jump for Joy Photo Project and Palm Springs Artist Residency

I had the pleasure of meeting Randy the same day I met Lenny Meyers. Randy helped set up the choppers for our photo session and was super helpful in pretty much anything that needed to be done to make the photos work, including push this car out into the sunlight for the shot. He had such a positive and helpful attitude.

I did have to coax him a little to do the jump and I’m so glad he did! It is amazing to see him hovering, effortlessly up in the air!
