Glacier: Sunrise Overflight

October 17, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

A friend of mine Andy Austin, was in town scouting for Keith Ladzinzki on an assignment for Nat Geo. In addition to shooting a bunch of locations from the ground, they planned an overflight during their trip. Unfortunately for Andy, the weather didn't cooperate for their flight and he had to leave for another shoot. Fortunately for me, Keith stayed longer and asked me to come on the flight to guide the pilot. 

We took off before sunrise and just as we made our way to the park, the sun came up over the inversion. We spent the next 90 minutes flying, photographing the mountains and glaciers. It was so cool to see the park from the air. Here are my favorite shots from the trip. Enjoy!

Update: A few months later, the issue came out and I picked up a copy. It was pretty awesome to see two full photo spreads with shots from the flight.
