Great Falls can sometimes feel a little… behind. Culturally. Don’t get me wrong—I love this town, but it needs a little something. We’re starting to get some awesome local restaurants, and this past weekend, I watched several artists paint amazing murals on buildings downtown.My buddy owns Speaking Socially, so I spent most of my time … Continue reading Arts Fest Montana 2019
I put the bird in the air tonight, hoping to catch an epic sunset. Sadly, the sunset fizzled out with barely any color. I still got a great aerial view of Ulm, MT. I really like the top down shot of the gas station. Now that the weather is better, expect more aerial shots…
After a brutal February and a chilly spring, summer weather is finally starting to show up. I spent about an hour in the back yard with a beer and the big lens trying to capture all the birds. Of course, they were all over the fence before I brought the camera out. But once the … Continue reading Almost Summer in the Backyard
We had talked about doing a shoot almost two years ago, but hadn't actually had the opportunity until recently. Lisa is an awesome person with no modeling experience, but she still made my job easy. We wandered around the Ulm area, then headed up to the First Peoples' Buffalo Jump. It was great to finally … Continue reading Quick Shoot with Lisa
I’ve always been in awe of Milky Way photos, but have never really attempted one myself. Now that I’m out in Montana, and light pollution is easier to get away from, I figured I’d give it a shot. I have a long way to go, but I can definitely see how astrophotography is addicting. I … Continue reading Milky Way
Years ago, when I got my first 35mm, I would sit outside at night during a thunderstorm shooting lighting. I'd set my camera on bulb mode, and wait till a few bolts went off. After I moved to Portland, I was slightly disappointed that lightning and thunder weren't all that common. Now that I'm back … Continue reading Lightning
The combination of earlier snow melt and recent rain storms have pushed local rivers over their banks. From what I've read today, it looks like the Missouri river has peaked at 14.5 feet, and is expected to start receding soon. The Sun River is also starting to slowly recede. Several fishing access sites will remain closed until the areas can be cleaned up and deemed safe.
Steve and I had the opportunity to get some drone footage inside the Cascade County Courthouse this week. Flying inside is never quite as easy as flying outside, but the fact that this is a 115-year-old building on the National Register of Historic Places made it even more challenging. We weren't as worried about damaging … Continue reading Courthouse Update
Remember My buddy Steve from the courthouse aerial footage? He’s back again for the Signature MT Winter 2018 edition. Signature Montana is a quarterly magazine for Montanans, by Montanans. Landing a cover is awesome, but check out the article inside featuring a collection of Steve’s photos. Especially the old combine silhouetted against an impressive aurora … Continue reading Steve Wolff – Signature MT Magazine
Had the opportunity to fly the courthouse today. Beautiful blue skies and a shiny copper dome. New photos on the courthouse project page. Shot a few seconds of video while I was up there, too. Playing around with the Point of Interest flight option on the Mavic.
