I'm looking for recommendations for aerial photography pilots and aviation companies in Miami and Key West.

 

the best shots I've taken were from a 2 seat r22 with the door off.

 

I also am interested in Washington DC, New York, really any big metropolitan market.

 

What is the approximate hourly cost? What airport do you fly out of?

 

i'd love any insight you guys have. thanks!

Of course, that also happens to be the cheapest!

 

Find a good pilot that doesnt mind flying low...about 300 feet for a good oblique...and slow....about 20-40 knots allows the camera to focus. You can't take great shots at 80 knots....just too fast.

 

A slight descent is pretty smooth, and keep your hands off the door frame so you dont pick up the vibration.

 

R22's can get a bit squirrely when flying at 20 or so knots, so grab a pilot that has a couple hundred hours in the R22 aircraft and doesnt mind flying slow.

 

Just look in the book, should cost you around $250-270 an hour with the pilot.

 

Let me know if you are ever out in So Cal and need a pilot/ship.
