Images of Sydney
Having been a professional photographer for most of my working life I have collected a vast amount of images of Sydney, NSW, Australia. These images are from the air and from the ground.
Aerial photography forms the backbone of my business and most of those clients also need some still images of local areas taken from the ground. These are the fun shots to do and I always set a challenge to listen to the customers brief first then decide if I have the images or I shoot new images.
I think its important to know Sydney intimately if you are going to produce the best images of Sydney. In 1986 I was commissioned to be the head photographer for a book on Australia for Australia’s Bicentenary. Although a long time ago the job was the most influential in my career. The owner of the business/publication was a wealthy South American with years of knowledge. He also had the best photographic equipment money could buy. He taught me the value of ‘seeing and recording’. I still have most of those images dating back to 1986.
Nowadays the cafe culture has boomed. People have more refined social tastes and requirements. Sales imagery should match those requirements.
If you are in the market for current images of Sydney please give me a call to discuss your requirements.
And don’t forget about our extensive (100,000 + images) aerial image library:
Aerial photography of tow-in-surfing amongst big surf conditions
Good flying last weekend over the coast and we jagged some spectacular tow-in surfing. One thing I really get a buzz out of is Aerial photography of tow-in-surfing amongst big surf conditions. The driver of the jet ski was particularly brave and the aerial photography conditions were perfect off North Narrabeen, Northern Beaches, Sydney.
Aerial photography of tow-in-surfing amongst big surf conditions is difficult. It is all about the timing. There are many factors you have to consider and wait for. The surf, the wind, a big wave set, etc etc,. Once on the chosen wave you have to depend on the surfer to stay on the wave.
Or its all over and you start again.
Thanks to Robert Simeon of R&W Mosman for his kind words:
“The all-time master of aerial photography Tim Mooney captured this amazing shot last weekend of a surfer being towed in at North Narrabeen beach – this wave was huge.”
Aerial Photo of Sydney Beaches
Aerial photo of Freshwater Beach, Sydney … later Sunday afternoon, Autumn 2013
Coming home via the coast from a Northern Beaches aerial photography shoot the site at Freshwater Beach was spectacular. A beautiful surf was rolling on and there were plenty of surfers on longboards ‘in the queue’ for a wave. Its fun to take an Aerial Photo of Sydney Beaches
There were also numerous families on the beach taking in the perfect autumn conditions. As an aerial photographer I am always looking so these clean images as my clients are always wanting something different.
Technically these in transit aerial photographs are difficult to master because of the complexity of speed of the helicopter etc. These shots have to be spur of the moment decision work and they are fun to perfect.
