Shooting for Exxon Mobil Corporation in Bluff New Zealand

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to shoot the Exxon Mobil Bluff Terminal. Over three days I captured ground/aerial images and movies for the corporation. The weather was perfect with 5 knot winds and crystal clear skys however frosts in the mornings were severe.

This image was captured using a panoramic technique and comprises of approximately 16 images.

I only managed to get a few minutes footage before the ref asked me not to use the quadcopter so close to the game. I understand his view fully and hope to get acceptance to aerial coverage in the future, maybe from a slightly higher altitude.



DJI Phantom 3 Smart Drone

I’ve recently picked up a Phantom 3 Drone which will allow me to shoot aerial images and video from any altitude. (not above 400ft AGL normally) Having a commercial pilot licence background will help me to fly the unit. 

I will be taking on a number of jobs using this new tool and am really looking forward to driving this unit.

The camera allows for manual operation which will give me full control over exposure and the video can shoot 4k and 24 fps which will give a cinematic feel to the final product. 

Looking forward to getting the Phantom 3 into the air very shortly.
