In Theaters – July 14, 2017

David MichĂ´d (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an anti-establishment, pro-soldier exploration in the form of an absurdist war story of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by his own hubris and a journalist’s no-holds-barred expose. War Machine addresses the debt we owe to soldiers to question the purposes to which they are being directed.
The Netflix original film is inspired by the book The Operators: The Wild & Terrifying Inside Story of America’s War in Afghanistan by the late journalist Michael Hastings. Joining Pitt in War Machine is a highly decorated cast including Emory Cohen, RJ Cyler, Topher Grace, Anthony Michael Hall, Anthony Hayes, John Magaro, Scoot McNairy, Will Poulter, Alan Ruck, Lakeith Stanfield, Josh Stewart, Meg Tilly, Tilda Swinton and Sir Ben Kingsley. Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Ted Sarandos and Ian Bryce serve as producers. James W. Skotchdopole, Pauline Fischer, Sarah Bowen and Sarah Esberg serve as executive producers. The film will be released on Netflix on May 26, 2017.

    PHOTOS BY VAN STYLES :: Running Patterns :: Flying Over Miami with South Beach Helicopters

    I love that line from Ferris Bueller's Day off. You know the one that goes "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it". This is something I have been having to remind myself to do since diving in and following photographer and all the places it has taken me. It makes me even more thankful for having a camera to interpret and document the world around.
    Being able to finally dig into some photos from my most recent flight with the good people at South Beach Helictopers means I have a new set of aerial images to share here. Now I know I have done a good amount of flights with them over Miami and to to be honest on a bright sunny day it never gets old. To see the such a vibrant city from above with your own eyes is something. I know a lot of people would just use a drone for photos like these but for myself there is nothing that can replace the feeling of making photos from 1,500 feet up. Putting the camera to your eye framing and pressing the shutter is such an rewarding emotion.
    This flight while I did capture some expected scenes I also found myself being drawn to patterns far below. Shooting mainly with a 135mm lens I was able to frame these patterns as I was seeing them which lead to some photos that I love. While Miami ideally is a beautiful place it was fun to make some photos of what are over looked backdrops. So enjoy the pictures below and be sure to hit up SBH if you ever make it out to Miami.
