Kite Aerial Photography

In my quest for local aerial photography I embarked on collecting oblique and vertical aerial images with kites. The images provided unique perspectives. There were many challenges to acquiring the images, especially from lack or variable winds. The latter which claimed several cameras. Locations included in Oregon, Colorado, Antarctica, Spain, New Zealand, and Africa.

My favorite kite experience was flying in Tanzania, where a small group of curious Maasai men visited during an initial flight. Everyone one got to take turns flying. We didn’t share any language but there was a lot of laughing.

Below are a few of my favorite images.
