Just a quick post to show off one of the photos I took last night at sunset, with the downtown Edmonton skyline visible behind a fiery red sky.

Here is an interesting collaboration that we were a part of, where we supplied aerial footage for an entry into the Davines World Style Contest. We took care of the aerials, while Carmen Bachez and her team took care of the ground based shots and final edits. Take a look and let me know what you think!
With the current wildfire situation up in Fort McMurray and the surrounding area, it is critical that you observe the current no-fly zone around the emergency area. There are hundreds of first responders including police, fire, EMS, and the military, that are working hard in the area.

After seeing the maternity photos that we shot a few weeks ago on the downtown Edmonton footbridge, the group behind Save Edmonton’s Downtown Footbridge contacted me and asked if there was anything we can do to promote their cause. After some brainstorming, the result is this beautiful aerial video!
Ever thought about doing something different for your special moments? How about this unique idea that we had to incorporate aerial photography into a maternity photo shoot! How’d it go?
