On most clear days you will find us in the skies over SE Queensland. This gives us the opportunity to capture amazing stock aerial images. Some of these images would cost around $1000 to capture on a one-off tailored shoot. This price factors in the cost of the helicopter, photographer, pilot, and post.

We have collated our stock images into an ever-growing library at stockphotosaustralia.com.au.

Next time you are in need of some breathtaking content to take your report, IM or advertisement to the next level for a relatively inexpensive price, Stock Photos Australia should be your first port of call.

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.

Delivering a client a great set of images takes more than just having a skilled photographer with the right equipment.

The final and one of the most important steps in the process of delivering stunning images to our clients, is the post processing of the raw images.

Post processing can make a great image even better, however, when deadlines are tight sometimes waiting for idyllic conditions to shoot a great image is not always an option.

When this is the case, extra time spent processing the raw image files can make all the difference between a photo looking okay or fantastic.

Below is the before and after of an image shot on a hazy evening from Newstead back towards the city.

 

 

News Corp recently put together this video for ONE Palm Beach on the Gold Coast.

We had the role of shooting both the aerials and level perspective views for this project.

The aerials were shot on our mid-level inspire 1 drone over an afternoon/sunset and the following sunrise/morning. We were very happy with the emotive impact they had on the final piece.

The view perspectives we shot on our large drone with a sony A7R2 professional digital camera. These were shot primarily for print applications and as back plates for renders. But we were also happy with how they were incorporated into the video.

 

 

A ground location and lifestyle shoot is a great way to introduce potential stakeholders to the area of your next project. We usually shoot during either the morning or afternoon golden hour to get the nicest lighting, however, sometimes the lunch rush is a key selling point that we are asked to highlight. Shooting in public, without models is a cost effective way to capture the hustle and bustle of nearby parks, shopping districts, and eateries. Shooting with talent is also sometimes the best option when the goal is to capture very specific emotive themes or children

Ground photography is the perfect companion for a great set of aerials, whether they are shot from a drone, helicopter, or both.

Introducing stakeholders to a location with a variety of shooting methods is a great way to show them the big picture, down to the fine details and feel.

 

Meet the latest member of the Aerial Advantage team. The DJI Matrice M600 Professional.

This newly released drone has triple-redundant GPS systems, ideal for operating in high ‘electronic noise’ environments. This also allows us to position the camera exactly where it is required and hold more accurately that any pre-existing system on the market.

It also has dual motor signal redundancy and can lose a motor in flight and still land safely.

It is powered by 6 individual flight packs. This allows it to safely land in the event of a catastrophic battery failure.

In short, this drone will allow us to lift the camera of your choice, up to a red or Arri mini and put it where you want it as safely as possible.

It also has a high-definition video downlink with SDI out – ideal for live broadcasts.
