Jamie Paterson – Images of Inspiration, Captivation, and Fascination

Na Pali Coast

Hi Everyone,

Well the excitement is well and truly started!   Mark has just driven into Fremantle to pick up the keys to the gallery so that we can start hanging our photos in readiness for the exhibition opening on Friday night.   I hope you are all excited as we are.

This photo was taken on my second last day in Kauai and it was really cool to be buzzing around the Na Pali coast in a helicopter.   I must admit though, when we first got to height and started going right up to the canyon walls I started to wonder how much closer we could get, before the blades were going to hit the walls.   I also admit to being white knuckled and grabbing my seat when we went racing over a ridge being only to see there was a 4000ft drop on the other side.

Once we all settled in though it was an awesome flight.  We spent 60min in the air and weaved in and out of lots of nooks and crannies and saw some fantastic waterfalls as well, as always it was a real let down once we had to head home.

From the air the waves are deceptive in their height, the waves crashing into the cliffs were actually close to 20ft in height.

The camera settings I used while in the air were: AV Priority – F8, ISO 400, shutter speed as determined by camera.   I hope you guys like it.

See you all Friday night!,

Thanks,

Jamie Paterson

    Thanks for that mate. I’m pretty stoked with this photo as well, I managed to get some good shots around this area as I wasn’t having to hang on to tight to the roller coaster helicopter!

    That is so cool Jamie, I can’t believe the waves are so huge.

    When I have some spare cash I will definately be in on a helicopter shoot with you like we spoke about last night. I think it would be great.

    Well done with the exhibition opening last night, it was great and you guys have got some amazing shots. You should be very proud of yourself.
