Overflight Stock – Aerial Stock Photography

Overflight Stock - Aerial Photography

I’m happy to report that I have teamed up with a new Canadian aerial stock photography company named Overflight Stock. It has been launched by Peter Chigmaroff, a professional stock photographer/videographer with over 25 years of experience producing stock content for many of the world’s top libraries. Depending upon the image, Overflight Stock offers both exclusive and non-exclusive licensing, rights managed and royalty free, aerial stock photography and videography.

I have started to upload to the site and a few of my kite aerial photography images have started to appear, such as the one below of spring thaw on Lake Superior. Regional indexing of the site will be enhanced as the volume of stock photography for each region increases. For now my work is simply listed under the general heading of  “Canada Stock Photos“. Search “Rob Huntley” to find my small but growing collection.

Visit www.overflightstock.com when you have aerial stock photography requirements.

KAP 2015-8 – Montreal River, Ontario

This kite aerial photography (KAP) session took place about 3 days into my journey west which had been planned as a 30-day photographic trip to the west coast and return to Ottawa via the USA. However, a day or two after this I suffered intense back pain which I sustained while my friend, Ted Welch, drove the rest of the way to Victoria, B.C. Subsequently I had two long stays in hospital, 9 days in Victoria and 8 days in Ottawa following surgery. Needless to say, this was not how my summer had been planned.

Here we were at the Montreal River, near the community of Montreal River Harbour. The river empties into Lake Superior at the Twilight Resort. I thank Dan Miles of Twilight Resort for allowing us access to his property in the off-season in order to take these pictures. Unfortunately the wind dropped not long after I put the kite in the air. Only a few nice shots were captured during this time. I would have liked to get more altitude to get a better perspective of the river entering the lake and to get a shot with the whole resort in a single frame.

KAP 2015-9 – Karen’s Place

My sister, Karen, purchased a home/hobby farm in the country near Spencerville, Ontario this year. Karen owns one horse and currently boards 3 more.

After another long break from Kite Aerial Photography, again due to back issues, I went to my sister’s place for Thanksgiving and decided it was time to get out the kite gear. Having had back surgery this summer it was with some caution that I approached this task. I had my niece, Stephanie, by my side so I could hand over if I needed to. She also helped with setting up the kite and holding the line while I mounted the camera rig. Things went well as far as my back was concerned with squatting to assemble the kite being the most difficult task. It was a gusty day and there were tall trees in the direction I was flying. A few nose-dives had me sweating while taking flight recovery measures. The camera was swinging to and fro but in spite of this I came away with a few good images of Karen’s property.

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.

Red Covered Bridge by Rob Huntley - at Fine Art America

Red Covered Bridge by Rob Huntley – at Fine Art America

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.
