The inherent risks of bringing a helicopter into a ski resort for a photo shoot are considerably dangerous considering how easily an avalanche can be triggered. But, when Chase Jarvis was assigned a job which required him to shoot on location in Aspen, Colorado, the photographer came up with a very clever workaround to the situation: a drone helicopter. Take a look at some of the behind the scenes footage:
The drone (pictured below) had a Canon 5D attached to it, which was triggered remotely by Jarvis from the ground.
Here is just one example of the quality work the drone/5D combo captured:
Jarvis took the slopes himself to capture some stunning photographs of professional skiers and snowboarders doing their thing:
“We have a little video camera that goes through the viewfinder of the 5D [on the drone] that sends the video down to [Chase’s] glasses.”
