CAMERASHIP - Points of view

I have included this collection of images to show the proximity of the subject (target) aircraft to my cameraship. It shows just how close we have to get at times in order to get the right shot, and is a delicate balance between the relationship between myself and my pilot, and the subject aircraft pilots themselves. The trust and professionalism that has to exist in this elevated environment is so essential. Whatever the shoot is, the effort involved to get two or more aircraft in the air together, plus the safety issues, pilot co-ordination, communication, takeoffs and landings, and timing are all paramount to the success of shoots like these.
