We were commissioned by RotorTrade, an international client of ours based in Singapore. They sell helicopters all over the world, they are a global helicopter distributor.
They contacted us when they needed to list an EMS helicopter which was based here in South Africa. They already had photos of the helicopter from their client but they needed something of a higher quality; they also required a video to be produced in order to show the details and extra features of the Helicopter.
We handled all the photography and video production for this shoot.
Whilst our client didn’t need anything extra special from us, we always try to produce something that look better than average. Given the conditions to shoot in, we were a little limited in terms of what we could achieve creatively.
Post production played a large part in making the photos look a bit above average, a lot of background cleanup was performed, we didn’t want anything distracting from the main subject, I find that often my eyes wonder in photos because of this, I like to clean up my backgrounds a lot.
All of the photography and video had to be shot in natural light, this was mainly due to the available spaces where the helicopter could be shot. The client also requested that we shot the helicopter outside of the hanger instead of inside.
The shoot turned out to be a complete success, the photos were delivered on time to a happy client. We always pride ourselves on client satisfaction, we truly believe this is of the utmost importance.
