I love flying just as much as I love photography and have been lucky to fly with so many excellent pilots over the years. Early this year I spent a few hours flying with Lindy Lee from R L Aviation in Cres near Geelong. She operates from her own airstrip, its a dirt strip and kind of exciting to take off and land on. The best part is the Cessna 185 with the in-flight door that gives you clear vision to shoot from.
It was a pleasure working with Dacland late last year helping them out with their Rothwell Project. Rothwell will have 1700 homes built on the site and after reading the information on the Rothwell website, it will be one of the highlights in the west of Melbourne. It has been interesting watching the west grow and I seem to be flying further and furether west to shoot locations. Keep an eye on this one!
It has been a few years since I shot aerial photography of farms in country Victoria. Hoping that the Canola crops are looking their best this year. The best part about shooting farms is knowing that the shots I take are hanging proudly in loungerooms all around the country.
Had a nice flight over Mount Buller from Lilydale Airport on Monday the 14th. The whole of Victoria was lucky enough to be bathed in sunshine for the first time in a long time! After some record snowfalls, the whole resort looked well covered in a nice layer of snow.
Seem to be shooting lots of sites in West Brunswick. It's so close to Citylink, making it easy to get into the CBD and the airports. What a handy place to live. The landscape is flat at the moment but before too long we should start seeing apartments going up all over.
It had been a week since I had flown in Melbourne, it can be challenging this time of the year to find a perfect day to shoot aerial photography. Yesterday Melbourne gave us one day to work with and we made the most of it.
This was a fun and challenging shooting drone stills for this project. The final product looks amazing using the aerial shots as the background in the renders.
This shoot was a challenge as the site sits inside the control zone and right under the flight path for Melbourne Airport. The weather was perfect and we got lucky, thanks Melbourne Tower! Getting a nice view of Melbourne from this far out is rare usually because of the smog and haze.
