Snow and trees.

Aerial photography provides a unique opportunity to shift perspectives on a shoot and explore new approaches to creativity and texture is one of my favorite.

Not only does it also open up new opportunities for framing, but one of my favorite aspects of putting a camera in the sky is the chance to capture texture and line in novel ways.

Tree and Foundation

Common scenes become strange and abstract. Patterns emerge where before we missed them. Texture pops out of the mundane.

Tracks in the snow expand beyond the action that created them and abstract into texture.

The planet becomes a new canvas and light a new brush. As an artist I can now approach a an image from all perspectives, put my camera  where before was impossible, and build my framing any way I can imagine.
