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.
