KAP 2015-1 – Lemieux Island, Ottawa

I have had a 16 month hiatus from kite aerial photography …. I’m happy to say “I’m Back”.

This first session of 2015 was actually a commission job and I’m not showing the client’s photos. The images I’ve put on my website are byproducts of the session resulting from the great location. Had there been time after the ‘job’ I would have done more shots of the bridge, the park and the Ottawa skyline. However, strong gusts kicked up that prevented me from doing more. Additional images from this session can be viewed on my website (link under the photograph).

The image here shows the Prince of Wales Railroad Bridge. There are two sections to the bridge. This is the section which goes from Lemieux Island at the bottom to the Quebec shore (Gatineau) to the left and top. The rail line runs approximately 200 metres on the eastern edge of the island and then there is a second section of bridge connecting the island to the Ontario shore (Ottawa). The bridge has been out of use for some time but is now under consideration as part of the developing LRT (Light Rail Transit) for the city.

Looking Down! – A New Group on Fine Art America

Looking Down (from above)

Today, I have launched a new group for participation by aerial photographers who are also members of Fine Art America.

Promote your aerial images to the art buying community by becoming a member of the group.

This is an aerial photography group. Low level aerial photographs and photos from ‘high places’ are permitted.

Looking Down includes views from above using:

– Aircraft
– Kite Aerial Photography
– Pole Aerial Photography
– UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles – model planes, quadcopters, drones)
– any other equipment which lifts your camera
– or simply from a high place such as a tower, rooftop, hillside, an apartment balcony or even a step ladder.

Images can include abstracts, documentary style photographs, etc as long as the camera is in an elevated position … not merely pointed down from your normal terrestrial vantage point. In other words, if the lens is less than 6 feet (2 m) above the ground it does not qualify.

Any amount of creative editing is permitted but the source of the image should be a photograph.

 Use this Link to get to the group.

‘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.
