A selection of aerial clips from heli flights around the Pilbara over the last few months, particularly in the Pannawonica, Robe River, Fortescue areas. I've never been able film this amazing landscape with any decent quality until the Black Magic 4K came along... love this camera!

Big thanks to Michael & Julie Percy and the boys at Pilbara Helicopters.

Black Magic 4k, Tokina 11-16, monopod/handheld from an R44 helicopter, stabilized in post & graded in Resolve.

 I snapped these images today while we were doing aerial photography work in the Pannawonica & Onlow area of the Pilbara.

Some of the patterns and textures you can see from the sky are so unique. These patterns and colours that form in the salt flats of the Pilbara sometimes look like incredible water colour paintings. I've been working on a series of shots now for a few months and have come up with these 9 abstract images. I'm not quite sure what to do with them yet - they sure are interesting! For those that like to know...shot from an R44 helicopter at about 1500 feet, with the Phase One P65+, and 80mm lens

Here's a quick clip, testing the GoPro Hero 3 out the door of an R44. Impressive little camera!

There are so many unique rocky outcrops and ridges to photograph in the Pilbara. Everytime I head up there I'm blown away by the landscape. I had an afternoon to kill near Pannawonica and was able to fire off a few images with the Phase One on dusk. Prints available here.
