Look Ma no hands

Gotta love working with people with a sense of humor.
Here chopper Pilot Tim Furguson of Helipro in Wellington makes a mundane behind the scenes shot a little more interesting (and terrifying).

Have been in Wellington for the Barcelona World Race yachts passing through the Cook Strait for the last couple of weeks.
Tim and Ned at Helipro have been absolutely fantastic.
They are seasoned pros at aerial yacht photography which makes the job so much easier.
Helicopters have to be the best way to shoot yachts. Versatile, fast comfortable and (usually) keep me and the gear dry. An hour in the air easily beats five or six hours on a boat.
