Pro Photo Supply and Sony are excited to host a private hot air balloon photography event with Vista Balloon Adventures! This unique event will feature a one-hour balloon ride over the Willamette Valley and Willamette River, and a catered champagne brunch afterwards.
Sony will be providing assistance and equipment, so this event will be great for Sony users wanting to try out new equipment, but this event is open to any camera users. This event is ideal for anyone interested in aerial photography (drones excluded), landscape photography and going on an adventure!
The launch site is in Newberg, OR at the Sportsman Air Park. The exact address is 1050 Commerce Parkway Newberg, OR 97132.
Take-off is right before sunrise, so please be at the launch site at 5:15am. Wear layers because it will be chilly in the morning, but warm in the balloon. The event will last about three hours. We will hand out equipment prior to getting into the balloons.
You must be able to physically lift yourself into the balloon (the sides are 44-inches tall) and stand for one hour.
Do not bring too much equipment. Space is limited in the basket, so back packs are not allowed. You can bring what you can carry in your pocket or strapped around you. Limited Sony camera bodies and lenses will be provided*.
Please remember to put in your weight when you sign up. Knowing everyone’s weight is important in order to determine how everyone will be distributed in the balloons.
*Other brand equipment may be provided on request
