Blending Aerial Shots with Fashion Photography by Joseph Ford

This project earned Joseph Ford an Honorable Mention in the International Photography Awards and its images were selected for the Association of Photographers Awards in the UK. The idea is simple but very complex to be executed right. First, the photographer needed to rely on expert pilots to achieve the complex aerial shots, but that wasn’t the hard part for him. It took him 12 hours in a photoshoot studio just to get one shot right. It turned out that creating a perfect overlap to the aerial shots was much more than just a challenge. The aerial photos came from his previous works on advertising jobs in Sicily, Mauritius, and Morocco. The fashion part came from a collaboration with art director Stephanie Buisseret and stylist Mario Faundez at Paris streetwear magazine, WAD, and later also a collaboration with stylist Almut Vogel from Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin. The combinations of color, fabric, and lighting were decided together and the final results are here for you to see. Enjoy.

It took 12 hours for just one image in the photoshooting studio, and that’s all just after the aerial work was done
