I have worked with the good folks at Blackcomb Aviation occasionally over the past 20 years while living in the Whistler, BC area. Usually it has been me, or one of my clients hiring a helicopter to do an aerial shoot of something on the ground, a house, a hotel, scenic photos, or even once a group photo. Fortunately this time, it was Blackcomb Aviation that was hiring me, which added and exciting new dimension to the shoot. I got to direct 2 helicopters at the same time to shoot some Air to Air promotional shots for their new contract providing tours for Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, BC. Here are some of the results.
Vancouver is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet. Mountains, ocean, beaches and glass towers co-exist in gorgeous harmony. All of the views that we photographed on this shoot are parts of the Grouse Mountain Helicopter Tours packages. If you are in Vancouver and are looking for an amazing and exhilarating experience, head to the top of Grouse Mountain, and go for a once in a lifetime scenic mountain flight in one of Blackcomb Aviation’s kick ass helicopters.
At TED, Yann Arthus-Bertrand talks about global sustainability accented by some of his amazing aerial photographs. He also shows off a teaser for his new film HOME which is an aerial extravaganza to show the damage we are doing to the planet, and what we need to do to help the planet rather than hurt it. All of his work on the film is carbon offset, and the film will be provided to anyone for free without any copyright restrictions for viewing or distribution. It was released today, and you can watch it online at the “HOME” movie website.
