Default From the air

Had wonderful conditions last Saturday to do an aerial photo shoot for a client. The 2 hour drive took me from Calgary to an airport just south of Edmonton. The job was to take several commercial photos from all over the city, chase rainbows and look for interesting shots of whatever else.

Here's a few of the interesting shots from on the ground and in the air.

5dMII, 24- 70 2.8, ISO 200

i really enjoyed each image. but #4, that one is just something special, just an amazing view with the storm blowing in with the leading rainbow. fantastic. i am sure the client will be ecstatic!

Amazing!!!!! Simple as that. I love 3, great patter and composition and 4 rocks too........ however, your horizon is off by about 1 degree (I had to find a problem somewhere in your shooting )

Thanks guys for commenting. I had to laugh at Mark's comment!......You know, I did see that before I posted but I got a little lazy and thought 'no one would see it', LOL.

Thanks Mark, pressures on now not to be lazy.

I like to keep you on your toes. I don't notice much but horizon is my thing, also, there isn't much else to fault so got to go with it when I find a problem.

So as you travel to shoot, does this mean you fly with different pilots all the time or are you met by a pilot in the 'team' there?

I get to fly with different pilots for now. Sometimes the owner of the flight company is in town and I'll go up with him but he's not always here so clients get a hold of him and a charter plane is rented for the photo opp.

That's cool. I guess you use anything that has a door or window that can be opened well, high wing etc so you don't get obstructed?

That's right. The window must be able to open right up and out of the way and in the case of riding helicopter, the doors are taken off.
