Sin City (Las Vegas) Aerials
Project involved shooting large industrial projects on the ground and also from the air. One of assignments involved complex flight arrangements and permissions to overfly McCarran International Airport.

When shooting low-and-slow I prefer to use turbine helicopters with high-time pilots who shoot for the film industry. There are several exceptional film pilots in Las Vegas and I flew with a gent that several photographers suggested. It is very much a team effort when shooting aerials and it is critical to choose someone who understands what you are trying to achieve and can put you into the right positions without compromising safety.
After my corporate shoot was completed, I shot a set of personal aerials of Las Vegas using a Robinson R-44 helicopter
