Here What It Looks Like To Fly Around In A helicopter By Durban Area In Natal-Zulu, South Africa


I never thought I’ll be the guy that would have an opportunity to be able to do an Aerial Photography or even able to fly in a helicopter (this helicopter doesn’t even have doors), especially all over Natal Zulu area by Durban. Yet some how, it happens. If it wasn’t for music and photography, I wouldn’t be in the air today. When I got into Photography last year in 2016, I was falling in love with photography and I would try all categories for photography, it can be beachscape, cityscape, landscape, portrait, and of course, skateboarding. I did a bit of everything.

Long story short, How i managed to acquired the privilege to fly in a helicopter, while doing stage photography at a pub, I met this amazing drummer named Rohan Myburgh from a local heavy metal band called “Your Cynical Sanity” that performed at Winston Pub Stage. It’s kinda funny, because Your Cynical Sanity was the first band I ever photograph while they are performing, at the same time I was taking photograph while they killed it on the stage. As time flies from the good times at the Pub’s stage, One day Rohan sent me a message on Whatsap offering me an adventure to fly in a heli-copter for some aerial photography.

South Africa is known to be one of the most beautiful country in the world, and it definitely is still living up to that reputation.
