Standing in the grill area in the circle, I was able to fly the drone and use my land camera simultaneously.
I'm an Expert in maximizing my visual opportunities, and I’m not bragging, this is just a fact that I’m discovering about myself. I recently created exteriors for a Chicago-based architectural firm simultaneously using my land and aerial camera platforms. The simultaneous photography experience saved the client an additional day-rate, if I was to have to come back or hire a separate drone photographer.
Using the drone camera platform is is my go-to favorite, as it so easily reveals proximity to locations, and scenery, however, there are few photographers who can perform both land and air at the same time.
And have a blast doing it! Spending one full day, sunup to sundown, I was able to capture the light from all sides of the multi-use apartment complex designed by KTGY Architecture + Planning, based out of Chicago. However, if I was limited to not using the drone at the same time I would have to come back a different day, adding dollars to the invoice.
The Artistry features a rooftop pool, patios and grills, two courtyards plus a bridge that will allow residents to move between courtyards without going outside; and 8,000 square feet of commercial space. The Artistry, a $78 million, 344-unit apartment complex located at 601 Pete Rose Way along the Ohio River, will offer creative outlets and art-based social events for residents and other visitors.
Try to show all of that without an aerial camera!
