Ep 005: “Discovering the Uncharted Territories of Helicopter Aerial Hyperphotography – a story of chance and serendipity” with Antoine Gaussin, The Spectacle Group

In the last of our 3 part episode diving into the world of fine art, we have Antoine Gaussin, an aviation photographer from Belgium who specialises in hyperphotography, where he stitches together photographs from different angles to form scenes from unexpected perspectives.

His latest project “Uncharted” has led him to taking birds eye view photos of airport from a helicopter from different angles, carefully stitched afterwards to form neat geometric patterns with aircrafts and bright colourful safety markings of different airports.

In this episode, we will be talking about:

  • Antoine’s journey transitioning from journalism to fine art photography
  • How his love of travelling and poetry led to creating art photography with a focus on airports
  • How the concept for the ‘Uncharted’ collection and his hyper photography technique developed
  • The role of innovation in making his art possible – from the lens he uses to taking photos from a helicopter which require special permissions from airports
  • Succeeding as a professional artist and serendipities that led to that
  • Antoine’s advice to those who want to do photography for a living
