In June I attended the Windscape Kite Festival as and invited 'celebrity flyer' in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. It was my second time invited (last time was in 2011). It gave my wife and I an opportunity to have a mini-holiday out west and we took an extra week exploring southern Saskatchewan in day trips from our accommodation at McMaster Manor Bed & Breakfast near Lafleche, SK. A number of aerial sessions were undertaken. There were also a couple of disappointments where I was at ideal locations with insufficient wind. You win some, you lose some! Here is a sample from...

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)....

  This Kite Aerial Photography session took place on the Ottawa River shoreline where the Prince of Wales Railway Bridge lands on the Quebec side in the city of Gatineau. Most of the images point towards the Ontario side as they are pictures of the bridge, Lemieux Island and the city of Ottawa skyline. Chaudiere falls is in the middle of the river in the foreground of the aerial skyline photographs of Ottawa/Gatineau. The Prince of Wales Bridge is not currently in use, and you can see that by the snow on the tracks where only people and dogs have...

KAP 2008-39: Dakota Mill & Grain, Wall, South Dakota. July 22, 2008

While visiting the badlands we stayed in Wall, South Dakota. This is Dakota Mill & Grain, Inc. in Wall, South Dakota. My KAP objective was the infamous Wall Drug store on the main street (in the upper left corner of the first photo). Numerous power lines made launching a kite in the downtown area iffy, at least for the direction the wind was blowing this day. The people at Dakota Mill & Grain kindly let me launch on their property and I intended to walk the kite and camera into town. After about 15 minutes of KAPing their facility I...
