Tilt-shift aerial photos

Over the last couple years I’ve been occasionally experimenting shooting aerials with a Tilt-shift lens. The purpose has been to play with the depth of field (selective focus or blurred areas)which is often disregarded in aerial photography due to the distance between the camera and subject making it very difficult to achieve with normal lenses.

Bristol Bay Photo Exhibit

I’m honored to announce the opening of a collaborative art exhibit between my favorite sculpturist, Maygen Jannetta, and myself. The opening celebration is 5-7pm Friday, April 15th at the Pratt Museum in Homer, Alaska. If you can’t join us then, don’t worry the exhibit will be on display until June 26th, 2011.

I’ll post some more photos and background on this project shortly, for now here is my artist statement for the exhibit:

Bristol Bay is an expansive region that encompasses a remarkable variety of ecosystems. This natural diversity sustains an unfathomable abundance of wildlife. I consider myself one of a fortunate few to have glimpsed a small slice of the natural wonders in this region.

Air to air over a glacier

Had another great air to air photoshoot today with Mike McCann’s 1933 Stinson JR. SR. The shoot was very similar to one from 2008, same pilots and the same mountain range. More photos to come, but just this one quick shot before bed.

Aerial photography in Alaska, May 21st

Aerial photo of a school bus on the Homer Spit, Homer, Alaska.

This post contains a selection of interesting photos from a recent aerial photoshoot from my powered paraglider (paramotor). I launched in the morning from the Homer Spit in Homer, Alaska and flew across Kachemak Bay for about 45 minutes of flying around the mountains before returning to the spit. A fellow paramotorer, Bruce Petska, joined me on the morning flight and now you can take a little visual tour yourself. Enjoy.

Fishing boats leaving the Homer Harbor round the tip of the spit.
