West End Studio Tour 2014

I’m participating in the West End Studio Tour (WEST) again. This is my fourth year (after taking last year off due to family obligations) .

I have primarily focused on three themes for my photography presented at this year’s WEST. The artistic side of derelict property is my main theme largely comprised of works from my trip to Havana earlier this year. I will also be presenting a number of newer aerial photographs, some taken with kite aerial photography, some just taken from high places. The third component of this year’s offering will be a number of abstract images, collected from here and there.

W.E.S.T. is in its 19th year and for 2014 has 16 artists showing a variety of art works. I’m one of two photographers on the Tour. My gallery is in my home at 480 Denbury Ave.

West End Studio Tour 2012 Display

The exhibition is over for another year. For the benefit of those who didn’t attend here are a few pictures of my display. Instead of moving all of the furniture from my living room and dining room as was the case in previous years, this year I left the main furniture with a bit of rearranging and included two additional rooms. The net effect was a more open feeling and space for more pictures to hang than last time.

You can see more examples of my display in the Calendar section of the Shows/Exhibitions/Presentations gallery on my website.

You can also view the individual images that were framed and hanging on my walls and racks in this gallery on my website.

KAP 2011-16 – Lebreton Flats at Bayview Transitway Station – October 30, 2011

This session was planned to take advantage of the late afternoon light shining on the Ottawa Skyline. The view is always great when driving along the Ottawa River Parkway towards the city over the rise at the level of Lemieux Island and the Bayview Transitway Station. So I made the goal of this outing to make low-level aerial images of the nicely lit skyline with the Ottawa River Parkway providing lead-in lines. The wind was great for the FLED with fully remote rig. I took advantage of the location to also take shots of the Bayview Transitway Station, Lemieux Island and the old Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge, and the transitway in two directions: leading into the city and also leading away from the city alongside Scott Street (but shooting more or less into the sun).

These images were taken from a camera suspended below a kite line, a method known as kite aerial photography or KAP for short.

The West End Studio Tour (WEST) 2011 is over for this year but our hard working team keeps plugging away year-round to keep this annual event rolling along. Choleena DiTullio is diligently working on short video clips of each artist to add to the West End Studio Tour YouTube Channel.

It’s my turn to be the featured artist and here is the video with several of the images that were shown in my gallery during this year’s Studio Tour.

Thanks Choleena for a great job putting this together.

To see all the images that I had framed and on display please visit the gallery on my website for West End Studio Tour 2011.
