Back in July 2014, I spent a great couple of days shooting a testimonial video about my Pilatus PC-12 aircraft. Here it is:
(Its also available on Vimeo – here)
This is the back story about making the video.
On a Saturday where we had no other commitments, Sebastian Lip and I decided to go on a bit of a day trip from Switzerland to Italy.
In twelve hours, we covered quite a lot of ground, spanned two countries, and had a great time doing it :)
A few weeks ago, TCP was used for ground and flying sessions for an upcoming flying magazine article.
As part of that process, after taking shots inside and around the aircraft on the ground, John Absolon (who did the flying and the photography) went flying to Kangaroo Island to try the plane out for himself.
It was later flown to Sydney for air to air shots in the vicinity of the appropriate famous landmarks!
Unfortunately access restrictions due to the weather (specifically, strong winds driving limited runway selection at Sydney Airport) was such that it wasn’t possible to get right into the harbour as intended. There were still some great shots taken with the harbour in the background, taken from the vicinity of Chatswood.
You can see a selection of the photos taken on these days at John Absolon’s photoshelter site, here:
This is my favourite shot (with thanks to John Absolon for letting me post it here):
While waiting for my Tesla Model S to arrive in Australia, sometime in 2013, I find myself wondering where the name ‘Model S’ came from.
Ferry day 8 has seen us fly from Bali to Broome in the north of Western Australia.
For an Australian, there are a number of differences that one notices when spending time here in Switzerland.
