Seven of my Pinhey’s Point photographs selected by Getty Images

Over a 2 year period I was preparing a series of aerial images of Pinhey’s Point (near Ottawa) for an exhibit in the Pinhey’s Point museum last summer. One morning last spring I arrived and the wind was flat and the sky was overcast. I waited but a predicted change in weather didn’t happen. So much for believing the weather forecast. It was so still that the reflections in the Ottawa River were amazing. Fortunately I usually travel with both aerial gear and tripod gear so I switched mental gears. Seven of the images I took that morning were selected by Getty Images for exclusive licensing and they are now included in their catalogue. Here are a few of them.

Popping Thistles, Waterperry Gardens, UK

New in my Getty Images portfolio:

Popping Thistles, Waterperry Gardens, UK. Like the previous post, this is an image that was taken at Waterperry Gardens in the UK last year. Again, I decided to apply a few photoshop filters to give it a unique look. A print was on display at the West End Studio Tour last year. Now Getty has taken it into their catalogue.

Goldenrod Beside a Hedge

New in my Getty Images portfolio:

Goldenrod Beside a Hedge. This is an image that was taken at Waterperry Gardens in the UK last year. I decided to apply a few photoshop filters to give it a more painted look. I liked it so much that I did a print for display at the West End Studio Tour last year. Now Getty has taken it into their catalogue.

Wyoming Red Road – 5 more shots added to Getty Images

New in my Getty Images portfolio:

Getty Images has selected five more of my Wyoming Red Road series of aerial photographs to be included for exclusive licensing by them.

These images were taken using a remote-controlled camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).

Cactus Abstracts

New in my Getty Images portfolio:

I subjected two of my cactus photographs to some “artistic” photoshopping and came up with Hedgehog Cactus Abstract and Pincushion Cactus Abstract. Not only do they make nice prints which I displayed at the West End Studio Tour last September (2011) but now they have also been added to my Getty Images portfolio.
