Recent 2005 Fall Jobs

This past fall I got a contract shooting stadiums for a local artificial turf company.

I finally got around to updating my website with some of the shots.

Here they are.

Thanks,

There should be several links of different topics there that you can click on. One is Stadiums, the other is Winter.

How did you manage to keep everyone OUT of the stadium during your shoots?

That was the easy part. These turf systems cost between $600,000 and $1,000,000. Every single one of them was locked up real tight with a big ole 10-12ft high fence around the whole stadium.

That was fine as I have a downlink and just flew outside the stadium for all of them except one. This one had like real nice 80ft tall trees around the whole stadium and it was real windy that day. This one I needed to fly from inside the stadium as there was no where else to take off and land from and not get grabbed by the 80 footers. I found a crack in the fence where it was chained, and was able to squeek through, not an easy feat by yourself carrying your plane, your Tx, your tripod and downlink and squeezing all that through the fence too!

Oh and actually there were people on one. It was when they were finishing up this stadium. Here is the original, see the people on the track and on the turf playing frisbee. Also the yellow caution tape around the high jump pits... http://greatlakesap.com/adams/IMGP3381.jpg Here is what the customer got... http://greatlakesap.com/adams/IMGP3381enh.jpg

Fantastic Pictures!

What time of day are you taking them? The sun is low, so it must be either morning or evening. Which is your preference?

Thank you,

Some are the morning, and some are at noon. I don't think any are at night.

The sun is low in most of them as it was fall/winter time, and the sun does not get very high here at all that time of year.

Most of them I had to wait until 10:00 AM before the long shadows were gone enough to shoot. Plus it helped warm it up, shooting at 20 degrees makes your hands cold fast when trying to setup.

You guys have good eyes!

Actually if I recall it is a garbage can they had out, but I still should have wacked it. I fly from outside the stadiums normally.

Scott, are you full circling the stadium while shooting or working one side or end at a time? The smaller planes get harder to see for us old guys when we try to fly a full circle around a large stadium. I have been shooting them, also. GREAT shots! What camera and plane are you flying?

Thanks Larry,

I just work one end period. No full circling. My customer want shots of their turf more than anything, so I usually fly pretty close and low. About 100 ft up on most shots. Not possible to get a width shot(like from sitting on the 50 yard line) without going up higher and pulling back. The endzone to endzone shots are easy to do. My customer recently started asking for both endzone to endzone and the 50 yard shot, but those are both easy to do from one endzone.

All of them were taken with Nikon 5200 and SS.
