I am a sponsor for a very great cause. This cause is Rach’s Hope. I covered the event with my photography and used my drone to capture video footage of the event. The shoot was of Lisa Doran’s father walking the last mile of a thousand mile journey to raise money for Rachel’s Hope. Walking with (Pa), were many friends who helped contribute to a worthy walk. The final mile was held at Westport Compo Beach. As you can see from the drone video, it was a beautiful day. At the end of the walk walkers were greeted by live music and pizza from Fire engine pizza company.
When drones started coming out a few years back, I always wanted to get one. But, I had to wait. Wait for technology, because when they first came out, there were tons of flyaways and it was hard to control the drone. Fast forward to today and I have the latest technology at my fingertips and the drone is so much fun to fly.
I photographed the group image here with a DJI Mavic Air 2. I adore the size and capabilities of this drone and the images are phenomenal. The shoot was at the best place to be before halloween…… Sleepy Hollow New york, right on the Hudson river.
I was asked to photograph a property in Lordship in Connecticut. It is a gorgeous little neighborhood right off I-95 and very close to the small airport and beaches. After getting clearance from the FAA to fly my drone in a class D airspace, I was all set to go. After the shoot I was all set to visit one of my most favorite places to go it is Riley’s by the Sea. A great little restaurant right on the water. Another great place to visit in Lordship is Surfside. Here you can get a nice little bite and enjoy the beach. When ever I am on a shoot, I love to explore what is around me, and always bring your camera.
