KAP 2013-20 – Spencerville Mill, Spencerville, Ontario – May 1, 2013

Spencerville is a small village in eastern Ontario, less than an hour’s drive from Ottawa. It is just north of Prescott and adjacent to Highway 416. It sits on the South Nation River.

I went to Spencerville for the first time about a month prior to this session. I was delivering three prints which I had entered in a juried photography competition/exhibit at the ArtScene Gallery located on Spencer Street (the main street) in Spencerville. Passing the Spencerville Mill, which I had checked out first on Google Earth, I decided that this was a good place for a KAP session. After the delivery I tried to fly my ROK but the wind was very strong and gusty (perfect direction though) so I had to abandon without having attached the camera.

When the photography show ended (I received 2nd place for Walk on the Beach by the way) I went back to retrieve my prints along with friend, and part-time KAP assistant, Ted Welch. You can barely make us out in the second image (and images 4 & 5 on my website), where Ted is playing with a resident’s dog. I believe the KAP assistant’s job description says “… while keeping distracting or dangerous interference away from the photographer”. The wind was much better this time except blowing from the south and parallel to the river which would have been my second favourite choice. Nevertheless the KAP session went ahead using my FLED kite and the results are quite worthwhile. There is another angle of the mill that I would like to try which requires wind from the west or alternatively getting access to private property on the opposite side of the river. The location also warrants summer and winter aerial photography.

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.

KAP 2011-18 – Pinhey’s Point, Ottawa River – November 9, 2011

This was my third kite aerial photography session at Pinhey’s Point. The Pinhey’s Point Foundation is a group which has indicated an interest in my photography with the prospect of doing a demonstration and photo display next summer. Thus, I have incentive to return from time to time. This time I went with the hope for some fall colour remaining and early enough in the day to have the front of the building (river-facing side) illuminated with morning light. Being late in the year with the sun in the south east, 10:00 a.m. was not early enough as the front was already in shadow. However, the lighting was diffused enough this day that the shadows were not too harsh and the results were pretty good in my opinion.

I was accompanied during this session by friend and photographer Bruce Amos. Together we represented 2/3 of our Photo Boyz trio. Hey Murray, next time maybe?

Pinhey’s Point is on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River, just upstream from Ottawa (Kanata) near the small village of Dunrobin. It is an 88 acre heritage site administered by the City of Ottawa. For more information visit the Pinhey’s Point website.

These images were taken from a camera suspended below a kite (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP).

The kite line and the photographer are visible in several images.
