Byron Bay Fly Over by photographer Luke Taylor

You are here

Recently I took a Helicopter ride over Byron Bay as part of a Canon Collective workshop that was held at Elements of Byron. The workshop was great & certainly gave us some pointers in the right direction for furthering our photography career's. Canon Australia provided me with the Helicopter flight as part of their promotion of the event & wasn't it epic. 

I have always wanted to see Byron from above & to photograph it at the same time was amazing.

The flight I took was with AIR T&G Helicopter Services located in Ballina, just near the Airport there. I carried two camera's with me, both Canon camera's, a 7D & a 5D Mark iii with a 17-40mm f/4 lens & a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens so that I could capture as much as possible. 

What a ride it was.

A shout out to my partner in photography for the day - David Hall Photography, we had a good time & we even won the last brief of the day, which was "Show Byron Bay as you've never seen it before". Thanks Dave for the good memories of the event & the good times + Beers ;-)

Some of these images are singles frames & some are Panorama's stitched together in Lightroom.

I'd like to express a big thanks to Canon Australia & Air T&G Helicopter Services for this opportunity.
