Heli Mustering Pilbara

Ok, I’ll admit this post has nothing to do with fine art photography! But it is blog-worthy because it was the most fun I’ve had in a long time. Pilbara Helicopters ( AKA Williambury Helicopters) asked me to shoot some new images for a new website and advertising. In between taking photos I got a few clips – I apologise in advance for dodgy hand held footage!

Seeing the Pilbara by air is stunning – it’s the best way to get around too. Flying at 240 km/h and the ability to land where ever you need, a helicopter is surely a photographers best friend!
