‘Round the Point – on Silent Auction at Ottawa Riverkeeper Annual Public Meeting

Over the past several years I’ve helped out with a few photos and assignments for one of my favourite non-profit organizations, Ottawa Riverkeeper. They have reciprocated kindly by hanging five of my prints in the main reception area of their offices on Scott Street in Ottawa (above Trailhead). They have been hanging there for the past 18 months or so.

This evening one of those prints, a 24 x 36 framed canvas print called ‘Round the Point (shown below) will go on sale in one of the silent auctions at the Annual Public Meeting this evening September 23, 2014 at the Museum of Nature. This is a kite aerial photograph showing a sailboat at Pinhey’s Point on the Ottawa River.

Ottawa Magazine Champlain Bridge Photo

Further to my earlier post, Ottawa Magazine also licensed a second aerial image of the Champlain Bridge which they placed at the centrefold of the same May 2014 issue. This is an aerial panorama created by stitching several images taken during the photo session.

I have included the bridge in a number of kite aerial photography sessions. From this session back in 2008 I have additional images that can be viewed in the Champlain Bridge and Island Park Drive – KAP 2008-51 gallery on my website.

Foyer Gallery 2014 – Beyond Limits

I’ll be showing again at the Foyer Gallery in the Nepean Sportsplex. This time it is a focus show titled “Beyond Limits”, with only 4 artists exhibiting work. That means that I will be displaying work in about 1/4 of the gallery. All of my work will consist of aerial views, most of which were taken with Kite Aerial Photography (a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite).

Other artwork in this show includes architectural photography by Mario Cerroni and paintings by Jess Fleury and Ray Piesina.

We would love it if you could attend the vernissage on Sunday, February 2, 2014 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.

Beyond Limits. January 28 to February 16, 2014 exhibition by members of the Foyer Gallery. Nepean Sportsplex, Woodroffe Avenue, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Back to the land of snow and ice after a wonderful month of February in Australia. Recently I have made a couple of attempts to KAP the Wakefield bridge without any success so a couple of weeks have elapsed without succeeding with any kite aerial photography. Finally a nice day arrived to do some work with the Parliament buildings and the still frozen landscape. Here are some of the shots from this session.
