When flying on a photographic or film job with us you will soon see what we mean by a collaborative effort…
Blue Sky Helicopters was established in 1996 with a focus in aerial photography and film work. In 1997, the company moved operations to Sydney Airport to be nearer to the City.
Flying with a true photographic pilot is of paramount importance if you want to achieve a great result. In reality there are only a handful (locally) who understand composition/light and the direct relationship it has with the pilot & handling of the aircraft… couple that with 20 years of working within the Sydney control zone, it means that if anyone can get the shot for you, it’ll be Blue Sky!
Blue Sky Helicopters can photograph the site for you (with a professional aerial photographer), or if you are a photographer we’ll fly you… With thousands of flying hours between our team on photography/media tasks you’ll be guaranteed to get the very best result.
Apart from being the supplier of helicopter services (photographic department) to News Ltd & Fairfax, the publisher of The Telegraph & Sydney Morning Herald… Our many other clients include professional aerial photographers from Australia & from around the World.
“Photographing from the air is a specialised process and requires the expertise and vision of an expert operating pilot and business. At Blue Sky Helicopters, everything is looked after, safety is of paramount importance and there is a seamless collaboration between pilot and photographer, something which is vital for the success of any shoot. I would have no hesitation at recommending Mark and the team in the highest way possible”
