I'm so honoured to have been awarded Best 'Artistic Aerial', 'Best Landscape Aerial', 'Best Vertical', 'People’s Choice' and multiple 'Judges Choice' awards at this year's International Professional Aerial Photographer print competition held in Charleston USA.
Aerial Photographer captures Melbourne at its best. Andrew Griffiths, of Lensaloft Aerial Photography, says it can be quite dangerous flying through adverse weather, but it’s a job he loves. Mr Griffiths flies across Melbourne each week in a helicopter to take images of the city’s famous attractions and its beautiful scenery.
Very excited to have picked up the top Judge's Choice Award for 'Best Commercial' Aerial Photography at the 2017 International Aerial Photographers print competition. A great experience to have my commercial work honoured by the expert judging panel.
Interview with my favourite fine art print experts. "I initially started out with the expectation that I would make my career as an architect, but after studying and then working in the industry for a few years I discovered that I was much happier with a camera in my hands."
Brisbane Lights from above - "The panorama is courtesy of Andrew Griffiths and his aptly-named business Lensaloft. Going by the company's other 360 extravaganzas, the photographers (or at least their cameras) spend a great deal of time in the air inside helicopters, blimps and other flying contraptions, though cranes are a part of the arsenal too."
MELBOURNE photographer Andrew Griffiths goes to great lengths to get the shot. And when I say great lengths, I mean leaning out of a helicopter being battered by 50-knot winds, 15,000 feet above New York City’s soaring skyscrapers.
