send them the info on your run and if they think
they can make enough money off the pics they will come out
no charge to you.

What the other have said. We pay $450-$500 an hour for a R-44. Make sure you are VERY clear about what you want from them. As mentioned, not all pilots are the same. That's a lot of money to gamble with a pilot thats affraid to fly low and fast.

If you can't see the whites of their eye's... they aren't low enough....

I'd pass on boat pix - prints are expensive & the quality is generally less than what you would expect.

Find the biggest and most stable boat you can and put the photographer in that boat. We've used a 50 scarab, 46 Black Thunder and a 42 Fountain in the past.

I can tell you that James Eaton likes to go for boat rides. If you talk to him ask him about Harmon Creek last year on my boat.
