I can say loud and clear that flying a Heli was one of the best experiences of my life.
It was January in Finland and as the sun rose, I got to picture Helsinki and Suomenlinna island from above all covered in snow and with just the perfect light. It was amazing.
Other cool flight experiences followed. There were seaplanes, small planes and hot air balloon rides among others but nothing compares to flying a helicopter, trust me.
Good news is that these days it is easier than ever to step foot on one of these bad boys and, if you are like me, fall for aerial photography madly.
To help you make the most of this experience, here are some easy photography tips that will help you take some great shots from above.
