View from Above

As part of our assignment to photograph the AVP Charleston Open this past week, Cami and I got to photograph the view from ABOVE! Mike Saia is the Director of Communications at the Family Circle Cup, where the tournament was being held. He had arranged for four of these world-class athletes to play an exhibition match on the deck of the USS Yorktown…and for us to photograph it from a small Cessna airplane. Having done some aerial photography before, we knew what to expect and had a great time photographing from this unique perspective. On the flight back to the airport, we also flew over the stadium to get this shot of the tennis court that had been converted for this week’s professional beach volleyball competition. We had used Jim Ellison of Flying High Over Charleston the last time we did aerial photos. So it was great to work with him again. He’s such a southern gentleman and provides a first class experience!
