MEMBERS ONLY AREA
Join us for our February 2nd General Meeting, 7-9pm. Our speaker is Jeff Voigt, an aerial photographer.
As a boy, Jeff spent hours building and flying model airplanes with his father. Starting at age 11, he cut grass after school so he could afford flying lessons on the weekends. He soon realized that he really enjoyed the view OUTSIDE the aircraft and the photography bug hit him.
Fast forward 40 years. Combine a great drone and a sophisticated camera, and you get a 400-foot-tall mobile tripod! All of his images are shot from the vantage point of the drone. His aerial images are all about perspective. Common landmarks and cityscapes become uncommon from the air. Most of the images are full of bright natural colors, sunrises, sunsets, sailboats, water views.
Jeff is a former Naval Officer, graduating from Annapolis in 1982, and served the nation for 8 years. He is an FAA Commercial rated drone pilot, His previous experience as a manned pilot lends itself well to this discipline. “Imagine composing an important photograph ... while safely flying an aircraft in the national airspace. That’s part of the fun of drone flight.”
