Hiking across Fortune Lake – aerial photograph.

Fortune Lake in Gatineau Park, Quebec with a lone hiker on snowshoes. Actually it is yours truly carrying an extra kite (looking like a rifle). Kite line has been erased. The photograph was taken in 2009, but just recently added to the Getty Images catalogue.

KAP 2012-4 & KAP 2012-5 – Playa El Palmar, Ixtapa, Mexico

I did two kite aerial photography sessions several days apart at opposite ends of the beach named Playa El Palmar, Ixtapa, Mexico. Playa El Palmar is the nearest beach to Casa Candiles, the Bed and Breakfast where we stayed during our vacation. The B&B is about 10 minutes walk from the public access near the south end of the beach (beside the Barcelo Hotel). There are no small hotels or B&Bs on the beach as you will see from the photographs. The buildings are large hotels and condominium complexes.

These images were obtained using a camera suspended below a kite line (Kite Aerial Photography – KAP). Each of the two sessions was with autoKAP, whereby the camera was triggered every 8 to 10 seconds while making a stepwise slow 360 degree rotation. The wind was not strong enough to lift my fully remote-controlled rig.

During the first session on February 16, 2012, I explored the southern end of the beach with my aerial camera. Photos from that session can be viewed in the KAP 2012-4 Gallery.

The second session was on February 22, 2010 and I explored the northern end of the beach, including Marina Ixtapa which is somewhat inland and connected to the Pacific Ocean by a channel. Photos from the second session can be viewed in the KAP 2012-5 Gallery.

In this posting I have included a mix of photos from the two sessions. All of these images are in an around Playa El Palmar.

West End Studio Tour 2011 Concludes

The past two weekends have had my home open to visitors as part of the West End Studio Tour 2011 (WEST). This was my second year in the tour which consists of 20 artists (2 photographers) in their various galleries, studios and home settings. Good traffic, good conversation, good leads and good sales. Consequently I hope to participate again in September 2012.

For anyone who missed the Tour and is interested to see what they missed in my portion of the show, the images that I had framed on display are shown in the West End Studio Tour 2011 gallery on my website.

Here is one of the popular images from the show which was also the one included in the WEST brochure and on display at the vernissage site at Wall Space Gallery.

Displaying Photograph at WestFest

The annual celebration of WestFest in the Westboro community of Ottawa where I live takes place this weekend (June 11, 12 & 13, 2010). Among many other things, WestFest includes a small gallery with 1 art piece by each of the members of the West End Studio Tour (W.E.S.T.).

The West End Studio Tour takes place in September every year and promotes itself in advance during WestFest. Besides the gallery, there is a display tent to encourage art with children with face painting, caricature drawing and art trading cards.

This will be the first year that I will be participating as an artist in the tour. Thus I have place a piece in the WestFest Gallery located in the chapel of All Saints Anglican Church at 347 Richmond Road.

A 16″ x 20″ framed and matted print of the following image of mine can be viewed there:
