It is good to have clients that keep you busy, and keep coming back with bigger, and better projects to challenge your creativity. It doesn't hurt when those challenges are tend to involve flying helicopters at sunrise, through some of the most beautiful scenery in the United States. The series of images in this gallery are from a variety of projects undertaken with the marketing team at MD Helicopters (Mesa, Arizona) in support of various commercial advertising campaigns, product delivery press releases, trade show collateral, and product development documentation. Typically the project scope with MD Helicopters involves tandem photography and videography execution. And, since we tend to shoot early in the morning, with a tight schedule for both flight schedules and capitalizing on the golden hour, it is always an all hands on deck production. Thus, the images you see in this gallery were shot by my Pilotlight Media business partner, and talented photographer, Vince Estep as the lead on camera. This is because while we are both strapped into the back of an MD 902 Explorer, he is usually snapping air-to-air stills, while I am operating the gyro stabilizer for the video portion of the shoot, examples of which you may have already seen on the Video Production page!
