On Wednesday the 26th of July we were lucky enough to get the opportunity to shoot the mammoth 333-meter long super-carrier, USS Ronald Reagan.
The Port of Brisbane Corporation commissioned this shoot to memorialise the largest US military ship docking in Brisbane in over 2 years.
We liaised with the US embassy, Port of Brisbane Corporation and air traffic control in order to make this shoot happen.
We were given clearance to operate in airspace surrounding the giant ship except directly above it. It turns out there will always be some restrictions in place around a nuclear-powered warship.
Below are some of the shots that were captured of the immense vessel.
Shooting in first and last light is really the best way to make a scene epic.
We recently captured an epic sunrise shooting for a development in Palm Beach, Northern NSW.
We traveled from Brisbane to shoot the sunset, stay the night and shoot the sunrise as well. This gave us the opportunity to shoot during the best hours of the day.
We shot the clip below on our Inspire 1 drone, one of our mid-level products. We also offer the Inspire 2 and the Matrice 600 Professional. The Matrice is able to lift pretty much any camera of your choosing – making matching aerial and ground footage a pleasure.

Showcasing a development from the drone is a great way to get both high overalls and intimate shots. Most of the time when shooting a site, the cost of shooting from either a helicopter or a drone works out about the same. One large advantage of shooting from a drone over a helicopter is the ability to stay on site for a long enough period of time to capture the changing light. This is possible with a helicopter, however it is far less cost effective. For more information about drone or helicopter shoots don’t hesitate to contact us!
This video is a compilation of some filming that we recently did of Surfers Paradise on the Beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland Australia. The video includes Q1, Hilton Hotel, and the magnificent Soul development Shot just on sunset and last light it makes for a spectacular footage. What a beautiful place.
We were recently contracted to showcase some amazing landscaping work in the Gold Coast. The landscaping company wanted photos of the completed works for entry into a internationally recognised landscaping magazine.
In order to shoot in the best light to complement the high end landscaping, we chose to arrive in the afternoon and to shoot through to last light. The golden afternoon sun is less harsh than midday sun, letting the images be more evenly exposed and more vibrant. Just after sun set was the perfect time to shoot the outdoor lighting, with the rising full moon and Surfers Paradise in the background, the photos were epic!

There are many variables that effect getting the perfect shot. The time of the shoot and camera setup chosen are within our control. Many are not. The variable that has the greatest impact on the shot is the weather. (more…)
Civilian Drones Have Arrived
In recent years the world has witnessed the rise of civilian drones. These flying machines have redefined what was previously thought achievable from an aerial platform. The increased ease and decreased risk of getting an aerial perspective has injected a new energy into the aerial photography and cinematography industry. (more…)
