Aerial Photography Showcase

I had the pleasure this week to get the opportunity to undertake some aerial photography of some specific buildings which took me on an extended route over the greater Durban area. In the process I also shot some great overall images showcasing those elements of Durban not often seen from the perspective of directly overhead. These images are captured in a Robinson RH22 Helicopter flown by a great pilot, Francois Bornman, of BAC Aviation. I so enjoy seeing Durban, a place I am so familiar with, from this totally different view point. Enjoy these images below showcasing some of the more general ones of the trip.
