Industrial photography - Nice Helicopter Shot ?

As an industrial photographer you never know what kind of an assignment may come next.

I was hired to shoot power plant smoke stacks by the company the constructs them,
Pullman Power.

These big guys go up at a rate of 25 feet per day. A wooden platform supports the crew and all their gear.
I spent a day on the platform shooting the workers and their progress.

This stack is about 800 feet high and I didn't shoot it from a helicopter ….. I shot it from a completed stack standing next to it. I ascended to the top along with the job foreman in a metal cage by a one inch wide cable.
Oh yes, it was 95 degrees that day. But the view was worth it !    See more of my work here:
