LOOKING FOR THE PERFECT SHOT?
Anthelion Helicopters has some of the most experienced helicopter pilots in the industry. Our helicopter pilots have successfully completed all kinds of flights with aerial photographers and aerial cinematographers from all over the world.
With each client, we take the time to understand the kind of aerial photography that is desired. We then decide on the best route and time of departure to get the perfect aerial shots. Depending on the photographer’s request the shoot can be done early in the morning, during the day, or late in the evening.
Whether it be a magazine ad, photography for a portfolio, an event, a specific scene, cinematography, or just capturing an unforgettable memory, our pilots will do all in their powers to position you for the perfect shot.
Keep in mind that selecting the proper helicopter for your aerial photo shoot is very important as each helicopter has its advantages and limitations. See ‘Options and Capabilities’ below for more information on the various features and additional services.
