Over the years I have photographed numerous properties for sale … many of them over and over again.
Altona in Point Piper is no exception. Altona sells for record Sydney amount.
This time Altona sells for record Sydney amount. In fact an aerial photo I took of Altona way way back (nearly 30 yrs!) broke all the rules. We flew so low that we almost could get out of the chopper … on water!
This time it has taken a while on market but Altona has commanded a current record of $50 + million. So while the claim is out – Altona sells for record Sydney amount -I’m sure it won’t be long before that record is toppled.
The above image is one of a batch I did for the recent sale. A few extra days on market but it eventually sold very well.
Hammerhead Crane Garden Island Sydney
My uncle Frank Wade designed this big ‘Hammerhead’ crane at Garden Island many years ago. He died at 103 yrs old many years ago.
I have been trying to get a good and different aerial photo of the hammerhead crane garden island sydney for years. Everything lined up the other day and I really like this result. What about that big helipad on the FRONT of that red ship, the Navy’s ‘Ocean Shield’.
This is a very high resolution original file is anyone is interested in a print.

Aerial Photo of Redfern including The Old Block
The grassed area to the top right is the old notorious ‘Block’ area of Redfern.
Before it was regenerated there were countless stories in the press of the goings on their at night. The whole area got out of hand so the authorities stepped in. This image shows a stark contrast of open space and the rigid line of terraced houses leading to the train station at Redfern.
Technically speaking this aerial photo mission was a challenge due to the proximity of the target to the air traffic from Mascot airport. Working with a great pilot is teamwork plus!

Its a mystery to me how the weather works … not really … its my business to know and forecast it. That’s why I have a library, actually a few libraries of aerial photography online … for these bad weather conditions. Basically the aerial image library service offered lets you make your advertising deadlines.

Fly and take aerial photos in any weather
If you have deadlines and feel like there is now sunshine to help … alas ! there is ! … in my aerial photo library.
Here’s my new Northern Beaches Heros Aerial Photo Library
Rentals are great because I have taken the photos in perfect weather conditions … and they are current. Just Email Tim Mooney with the address you are looking for and I’ll get back to you FAST with a choice of images. Please include your contact details in case we need to clarify your request further.
When flying and doing my aerial photography you get to see things in a different perspective.
One would think that the amount of flying I do would expose me to marine threatening occasions. Not so although this one did raise a shark alarm after we radio’d in to Surf Life Saving.
Other events from the sky that we kept our distance from was the birth of a whale on the south coast of NSW. We were en route to a shoot when we noticed a very large whale curving her body. We continued on to complete the shoot. On our return to base flying over the same are there was the mother whale with her new born (and a mess) right beside her. Beautiful.
I always remember: We are all part of the food chain.
Hello down there!
Not really. I don’t live in the sky. I live on the ground like you but I can tell you there is nothing like a bird’s eye view from the chopper.
Aerial photography is something I have been doing for over 30 years and it still excites me tremendously. Not just the flight but also the fact that I can deliver to clients clear, crisp aerial photos that help market, sell or expose property and real estate.
There’s nothing like a great aerial photograph to really tell the story. Aerial photographs show location, size, aspect, condition, typography, etc etc. See the aerial photo … get the picture.
