Fun two day shoot for a long-term client. First morning was spent building lighting for video and still shooting of the Mount Vernon distillery. Since this was a mixed video and still shoot, I brought my friend Jon Roemer into the mix. Jon and his able assistant Chris Flanegan handled video production and Kristian Thacker and I took care of the stills. Mount Vernon is prohibited airspace, so no helicopters or drones are allowed. Answer: articulated lifts. I have shot from them for years and they're a great answer for the right project or client.
Jon's funny little video. Worth watching.
Many thanks to the good folks at Mount Vernon and of course, Virginia Tourism.
