1. Reception

Welcome, thanks for stopping by. Please take a look around, check out the photography in the galleries and the videos and interviews in the theater. Don’t forget to check out my book of kite aerial photos of Wisconsin called Hanging by a Thread. 


Using a kite to lift a camera for aerial photos is an artform that has been around since the 1880’s. I was initially drawn to it in the mid 1980’s finding it a very interesting and challenging process of designing and building the kites and camera controlling equipment. Once I began practicing and developing the kite flying and photography skills I realized what an amazing platform the kite is for a camera and what fresh and powerful vantage points the kite and camera can attain.

So for twenty years I have been practicing kite aerial photography. I have discovered many commercial uses for the aerial close-ups and have accumulated a great deal of stock images. Mostly though, I never tire of the thrill in the process of the capture of a great aerial image.

If you have any questions about what you see here on my site or if you want to know more about how these low altitude aerial images are made don’t hesitate to ask.

Enjoy your time here checking out the views FromaKite.

For your convenience we have coffee and doughnuts back in the service department.
