We are ready to bring the SaskPower Windscape Kite Festival and Long Day's Night Music Festival back in 2022 and look forward to sharing the prairie skies again with all of you on June 16th to 19th, 2022.
Rob is a photographer from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He enjoyed kites as a child and then later as a parent, but it was never a serious undertaking until 2008 when he came again to kite flying, using kites as tools to take a camera to new heights.
Kite Aerial Photography, or KAP, uses remote-controlled camera equipment suspended like laundry from a kite line. With this method Rob can place the camera at a much lower elevation than is typically the case with aircraft aerial photography. Drones have risen to popularity since he started doing KAP, enabling low level photography with a higher level of technology. But Rob continues to use kites in his own aerial photography work.
This is Rob’s 3rd invitation to the Windscape Kite Festival.
