photo by Nicolas Chorier

Nicolas Chorier, worldwide well known kite aerial photographer (the only real eco-friendly aerial photography), has joined Photographers Direct.
Specially designed, his kites lift professional still cameras which are mounted on a small cradle, hanged on the line under the kite. The cradle is fully radio-remoted and can be aimed in all directions. A video link air-to-ground sends a signal which provides real-time monitoring on a portable TV screen, for accurate framing.

Easy to set, non-polluting, non-intrusive, it's possible to remain stationary over a site for a few hours, thus offering the guarantee of a successfull high-quality job.
The camera can be lifted up to 250 meters, even though low altitudes are often more interesting. The kites’ precision and potential provide an exciting, cost effective, and innovating solution for any type of aerial capture. It's the simplest way to carry an aerial platform anywhere in the world, it all fits in a couple of regular cases, and can be operational in 10 minutes time.

Nicolas based in India, but travels easily to any location. Check his website and do not hesitate to ask him anything. He has a huge library, impossible to put online entirely.
