The year 2021 will bring a new way to visit and capture the best photographs possible from an inside position at Fiesta.
Join hot air balloon pilot and long-time, award winning photographer Ken Sklute and his hot air balloon team as we take you behind the scenes to give you the best opportunity to see and photograph the 49 year old Fiesta in this 5 day workshop.
You will be front and center to shooting Dawn Patrol before the sun comes up. You will fly with Ken as he takes to the skies over the launch field to provide you a magnificent view of the field inflating and taking flight. We will fly on to the area where we will land and pack away the balloon. The following day, after capturing the inflation of the 600 participating balloons, you will join Ken’s crew as they chase the balloon to its landing spot, providing you the opportunity to diversify your collection of images while stopping to capture balloons in the air or possibly see a splash and dash in the Rio Grande River.
This offer is open to only 4 people. Two people will fly one day as the other pair chase the balloon with our crew and then reverse positions the next morning.
You will have every access that our balloon crew has. You will miss all of the traffic and stress that being caught up with the general public has.
We will close our fun time together with helping our crew during the Saturday Night glow and be in prime position to capture images of the sunset and twilight spectacle!
The cost to attend and see the Fiesta from this unique position is $3,800.00. This is a non-refundable purchase.
