Last night. Carefully testing out how the drone does in a bit of wind. #aerial #uavcanada #uav #djiphantom #landscape #scenic #sunflare
Nice looking sunset tonight, logging some flight time with @stephanieadventures . #collingwoodontario #landscape #scenic #sunset #aerial #drone #uavcanada #collingwoodphotographer #djiphantom #djiphantom34k #droner #dronephotography #dronestagram
I bought the drone, the recreational rules changed right after, tried selling the thing brand new - no takers - so here's the maiden voyage after 3 months in a box. My very first #aerial #rawphoto edited in #adobe #lightroom. Permission from property, below ceiling, within view, contact info on top, outside of aerodrome, and no buildings near, recreational intent. Playing by all the rules. #djiphantom #dronelegal #landscape #farm #paddocks #drone #uav #green #collingwoodontario #landscape #uavcanada #dronecanada
The person we bought our house from sure had a lot of flowerbeds. Slowly landscaping but here's a snapshot of what we have had in bloom in the last week from my cell phone.  #inbloom #springtime #springflowers #flower #floral #collage #colorful  #cellphonephoto #gardener #athome  with @stephanieadventures
Look at that sunset panorama! First of my stock images I've found in print in my new home of Collingwood showcasing the New Shipyards Development on Georgian Bay. Look through my instagram feed and you'll find a cell phone capture from the same night.  Though I was lucky enough to have my work in all sorts of local tourism mags around #Kelowna, #BC and the #Okanagan, I had to start all over again with my image collecting and making new contacts after moving to Ontario. I'm optimistic that this is only the first of many many more to come.  #collingwood #collingwoodontario #collingwoodphotographer #photolicensing #stockphotography #scenic #inprint #sunset #OnTheBay #georgianbay #staybusy #keepshooting #lovewhatyoudo  #tearsheet
Thanks again @thenewshipyards
Video tours brought me to Owen Sound for shooting today. 2 acres and a beautiful 3000 square foot home plus outbuildings for the price of a shanty in Toronto. Haha.  And no - I'm not actually using a video light for the exterior shots. Lol.  #owensound #owensoundphotographer #realestatephotography #glidecam  #GreyBruce #videotour #realestate #canoncameras #videographer #virtualtour #glideheads #glidecamadventure #cameraequipment
I've been working on some fresh marketing materials for my property photo/video/design work - this animation is a little sneak peek. Anyone know some Realtors in the area looking for their new favorite photographer and video tour provider? Send them my way.  Measured, to-scale floorplans are one of my most recent offerings but have been selling like hot cakes - they make great additions to feature sheets and property tour websites especially when the interior of a home can be "less than photogenic". For fellow 3d nerds out there : 211 frames rendered in blender internal renderer. Fifteen minutes to build the scene and half hour to render all frames.  #blender3d #3danimation #floorplan #realestate #collingwoodontario #collingwoodrealestate #realtor #blenderrender #blenderinternal
I love shooting houses and in those houses I love shooting the kitchens in particular. Especially baller ones like this one today.  Maybe has something to do with my original career path. Haha.  #realestatephotography #realestate #photographer #canon #canoncameras #propertyphotography #interiorphotography #kitchen #realtor #collingwoodontario #wasagabeach
Playing around with some 3D compositing on some stock footage from Blue Mountain.  Getting better and better with the whole 3D design thing.  The camera solve isn't quite perfect as you'll see the title jitter a bit but that's what practice is for.  My focus for this clip was trying to make the projected shadows onto the terrain and trying to match lighting intensity and direction. 
Getting my work flow down and soon I should be able to effortlessly add 3d titles or any other 3d geometry to every video project I work on. #blender3d #3danimation #composite #cgi #practice #blenderinternal #blenderrender  #photographer #videographer #videoeditor #collingwoodontario #videotitles #videoeffects #camerasolve #cameratrack #neverstoplearning #skiresort #winter #chairlift
