This job was HUGE, with almost two hours in the air to accomplish everything.
The start of the day was unclear due to the fog. My pilot, a highly experienced veteran who flies privately out of YVR Terminal B, was not too happy. I had got him out of bed for our early flight then had to postpone it. He retreated to the hanger in a huff, while I had a good breakfast and waited out both his mood and the fog.
The wait was worth it. As the fog lifted, crisp blue skies emerged for the full two hours of flying that I needed. I used three camera systems that day, valued at over 100k. I shot Nikon digital, Hasselblad medium format digital, and video supported by image stabilizing gyroscopes.
While the day got off to a grumpy and foggy start, my pilot ended up being the perfect choice. Things went extremely well and we captured exactly what the client needed.
