Back in 2008, I shot a picture of the London Parliament from the London Eye during the evening hours of a cloudy day.  As with most of my photography, both personal and professional (aerial photography mainly), I posted it to SmugMug.  A few months later, I received a call from a producer who was doing work […]

A few impressions to append to my earlier article: The high-speed continuous shooting is actually too fast for what I shoot…I changed it to low-speed (3fps) Instead of shooting at ISO200 like I usually do, I shot at […]

Why Aerial Photography?

October 30, 2007 | By | 1 Comment

I created Tiger Aerial Photography 3 years ago as a way of combining my passion for flying with photography in the hopes of bringing in a little cash to offset these two hobbies. So far, it’s worked fairly well. I do most of the shooting on weekends. Marketing is mostly Google Adwords and referals. I’ve […]
