I love it when everything comes together just right with a little added extra surprise to make a shot even better. Last week I did a late day drone shoot for Boston based Stoss Landscape Urbanism of the downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin CityDeck. I had shot this project when it was original built through the three yearly phases of construction and how the Green Bay community used the river front project. Earlier this summer Stoss reached out to me, after seeing some of my other drone photography, to see if I could get some updated shots of the deck with my drone. The ¼ mile long, 2.5 acre linear park runs along the edge of the Fox River and connects a regional network of bike and pedestrian trails with downtown Green Bay. It was important to get shots showing how the project interacted with it’s environment. I was real happy with how this shot was coming together and even more happy when I saw this pleasure craft approaching and knew the bridges would be opening for it. I shot this photo at just shy of the FAA ceiling for flying a drone of 400 feet above ground level and within the half hour after sunset that a FAA licensed part 107 pilot can fly with the proper lighting on their drone. I was happy with the way all the elements came together and how I got my client the type of shots they where looking for.
Thanks for looking!
