From 5am landing at Sydney airport, straight to Bankstwon airport for next flight
No, not here to see the police helicopter take off no, after my leg from Europe, it's straight into work mode ( love that landing somewhere and getting straight into production mode ) Super early in the morning, and we have Texas girl, Bay Berger, from Priscillas Margaret Zhang from Shine By Three
and Jacqui from Running Under The Sprinkler, all here early freezing their butts off this early in the morning as well as make up artist, designer and client ( can't tell you more at this stage, but all will be revealed when advertising campaign is ready to hit the streets ) loading our mode of transport, this will be the smallest plane Jacqui's been on, and probably some of the other crew as well. Fun, exciting, just need a coffee though to wake up :-)
take off in golden morning light
beauty about these small planes is that they have big windows to shoot out of :-) prospect reservoir clouds over the blue mountains The Nepean river at bottom, going through the blue mountains heading towards Penrith lakes at the top of photo tiny speck of cloud on horizon is from the Mt Piper powerstation just near Lithgow the lake Burragorang created by warragamba dam in the blue mountains
the beautiful blue mountains, best spot for a good day of bush walking the grazing land beyond the blue mountains, still early and covered in patchy fog a lot of fog actually beyond Bathurst nice shot, and would be a nice shot down there as well Island mountain top of the fog fog finally clears further west ( and to think I flew over all this coming from the other direction about 2-3 hours ago, when it was still pitch black ) heading down to land and re-fuel our very own plane for the next few days :-) Jacqui trying to warm up in the sun, it gets a bit cold on these planes when you sit at the back ( heater in the front does not quite reach to the back ) re-fuelling the plane at Swan Hill, western N.S.W., just north of Victorian border. Now this is where I stop the post, we continue on flying and get there in time for late afternoon, but that's all I can say. We ended up doing some fantastic photos on an awesome location with a great team. Was awesome, but, we just going to have to wait as we do not want to spoil the surprise. So begin September the campaign will be released and I will post more flight photos, and both Jacqui and Margaret will post behind the scenes photos and videos. And will post end result, plus a great flight back to Sydney. So stay tuned.
