Veecraft Formation Shoot

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

The Aerial Perspective were commissioned by Cape Town Shipbuilders Veecraft to photograph a formation of three new vessels which they completed recently and launched simultaneously in November. Once final fitting out and sea trials had been completed, the two 30m Incat personnel carriers Deborah and Perez, as well as “little sister” Ahuva, a 20m Incat crew ferry vessel, were put through their paces for The Aerial Perspective’s cameras in Table Bay.

All three vessels were built for the same customer, C&I Leasing, and by the time you read this, they will have been wrapped up in plastic and loaded onto a cargo ship for transport to Nigeria where they’ll be transporting supplies and personnel to the offshore oil rigs and plattforms.

Thursday, December 15th, 2011

On Saturday 10 December Tyger Valley Mall hosted the Tygerbear Foundation’s “Holding Hands” Campaign, and the Aerial Perspective was overhead to capture the giant teddybear face made up of several hundred people holding hands on the rooftop parking lot.

The tygerbear foundation helps victims of child abuse – a worthy cause indeed, and we at The Aerial Perspective feel priviliged to have been able to contribute.
