Like sitting at home on the couch. That’s what I was thinking as we flew smoothly and slowly, hugging the coastline, not in a fixed wing plane like I normally do, but in a comfy helicopter with the door off. Usually I’m in something like a Cessna 152 that has a little window that opens just enough for me to stick my head out into winds strong enough to make it hard to hang on to the camera let alone point it in the right direction or see what you're doing because your eyes are constantly tearing. Also I have to twist around in the seat and shoot backwards to keep the wing, support and wheel out of frame. All of which makes it noisy (have to take the headphones off), awkward, and hard to get the right angles, sometimes requiring multiple passes. But now, sitting comfortably with 180 degree unobstructed views, able to shoot any direction I wanted without any wind or noise, telling the pilot to tilt a bit here, move a bit over there - luxury. So why wouldn't I always use a helicopter? Because 40 minutes cost me over $800.

Note: Both paper and canvas prints come rolled in acid free tissue paper inside a heavy-duty mailing tube (signature is required upon delivery).
The standard sized paper prints - A2, A1 and AO - are designed to fit off-the-shelf frame sizes but for custom framing (like the panorama prints which aren't standard sizes), I'd recommend taking them to a professional framer.
The canvas prints are much harder to do yourself so should also be taken to a framer. All the canvas prints have a mirror wrap edge (sometimes called gallery wrap) which means the image appears to continue around the side of the frame but it's actually a copy of the image, as if the image were held against a mirror. This way none of the image is 'lost' around the side, it just looks that way.
If you have any questions about the prints, the images or anything else, I'm always available through the contacts page.
