Rob Huntley's Kite Aerial Photography (KAP) - Chemin Cross Loop nearWakefield, Quebec



I visited local artist/photographer Rob Huntley's exhibition during the annual West End Studio Tour. He took this KAP photograph of chemin Cross Loop near Wakefield, Quebec. You can see Rob standing on the side of the road flying the kite. The camera was suspended high above on the kite line which was edited out by Rob.

According to Wikipedia: ".... Kite aerial photography (KAP) is a hobby and a type of photography. A camera is lifted using a kite and is triggered either remotely or automatically to take aerial photographs. The camera rigs can range from the extremely simple, consisting of a trigger mechanism with a disposable camera, to complex apparatus using radio control and digital cameras. On some occasions it can be a good alternative to other forms of aerial photography...."
